Additional resources in Learning Library... or Tools ? edit

About this:

Shouldn't this addition be outside of the learning "Library" sections and instead placed in the "Tools" page (along with Wikimetrics and Qualtrics) of the Evaluation portal ?

Note that the link below the first added resource (descrbed with the resource template) is unrelated, but seems to be associated to the next resource below it. The presentation is counter intuitive and the link not described correctly. This is counter-intuitive and in fact it is fully related to Wikimetrics in the Tools section.

verdy_p (talk) 03:23, 22 February 2014 (UTC)Reply

Yes, I noticed this when I posted next to the Logic models one. Both the Logic Models and the Tracking and Reporting Toolkit page are tools too, just at different levels (these two pages should be under a subheading of something like "Process and Tracking Tools") so both will need to move and a category level which I need to figure out. I just have not had the time to come back to it and couldn't figure it all out at the time I realized the disorder. JAnstee (WMF) (talk) 17:34, 22 February 2014 (UTC)Reply
OK... This populates better the reusable tools for various future reports. And lives the library for finalized reports about completed programs (whose reuse for later preoframs is much less evident except for inspiration or simply to learn about what was good or bad in a project and discussing about what may be done in the future; the library are not necessarily the current state of best practices to recommand for the future, even if they are informative and an be used to hint further projects)
In fact given te current size of the library, may be the program reports themselves should have their own section separate from the library itself on the portal, as they are not really "resources".
Or the library may be thought again by showing a more synthetic list as it is now growing rapidly (and much more than any other part of the Evaluation portal. For now it is sustainable, but this won't last for long and this library should probably become a basic index of thematics, bringing people to pages listing resources about each thematic (note that we already have categories or lots of common thematics, and many of these thematic pages (listing the various resources about the thematic) should be categorized in those categories (e.g. "Meetings/Meetups", "Privacy", "LGBT" and "Gender divide", "Translation" and improved support for some scripts like Arabic or African languages, "Wikipedia", "Commons", and constant projects with regular events organized in various places like "GLAM", "Wiki loves monuments", photo contests, "Wikipedia Education", "Zero Access", "Chapters organisation", and the various Wikimedia commitees...) verdy_p (talk) 19:55, 22 February 2014 (UTC)Reply

Wikimania 2016 Evaluation edit

thank you Jaime for the message. fantastic to have you involved! yes, please do not hesitate to comment directly on the talk page of Wikimania 2016 bids/Esino Lario/Evaluation, and please add all your doubts and suggestions and remarks. We have the idea of having an evaluation team (here the draft page). beyond the survey and the tools we would like to involve the stakeholders (in particular wikimedia Italia and CH), we will have to report to grantmakers too (the report for Wikimedia Foundation will be on meta but for the others we will have documents in Italian following their forms) and I would like to have also some researcher involved (Roberta Bonetti is anthropologist focussed on applied anthropology who has already given her volunteer support to the idea) and maybe the team of Italian sociologists focused on ICT. Open to suggestions and of course i consider you and the evaluation group of Wikimedia Foundation part of the team if it is not a problem. my warm regards and looking forward to hearing from you. --iopensa (talk) 19:28, 2 February 2015 (UTC)Reply

Wikimedians of Colombia user group edit

Hello there, Jaime! I'm Oscar, from the Wikimedians of Colombia user group.

We the group members are worried to see that we appear here as a not eligible group, with no recent activity and reports not up-to-date. We are not sure if that's a mistake or if we have not made some reporting procedure, so we'd like to check what the problem was and fix it. I appreciate your kind help with the issue.

As I'm not sure if I can modify this other table, I'm posting here the relevant information:

  1. The group current status is Renewed indefinitely since this AffCom resolution.
  2. Our annual report was sent for the renewal. It's located here.
  3. We have requested, received and reported on time one (1) grant. The report can be seen here.
  4. We have an active blog here, an active Facebook page here and an active Twitter account here. As you can check there (and also in the annual report), we have been doing several activities over the year. In fact, we have recently requested a new grant for a contest we have just started.

That's it. Do you think we somehow missed any reporting procedure or something? What shall we do now to fix our status?

Thanks for the help! --Racso ¿¿¿??? 02:32, 4 December 2015 (UTC)Reply

Hello Oscar. Thank you, for pointing that renewal out, I missed it, and especially for posting the links to your report and other sites. I have updated Reports with those links and also made the update to the eligibility list. (That is where we check for reporting and activity when we do the eligibility list.) Please let me know if you have any further questions. JAnstee (WMF) (talk) 03:03, 4 December 2015 (UTC)Reply
Blazing fast! Thanks again for the help! --Racso ¿¿¿??? 14:35, 4 December 2015 (UTC)Reply

WMLGBT+ edit

Hi Jaime, I added a link to Wikimedia LGBT/2015 to the Reports page. We haven't applied for any funding, so the report is mostly a summary of our activities, or at least links to more comprehensive meetup and results pages. As you may know, Wikimedia LGBT+ focuses on improving content across all Wikimedia projects, and in all languages, so our reporting may look a little different than groups with a more defined scope or geographic area. Please let me know if you require any additional information at this time. I am trying to get the ball rolling now so that the group can be represented at the Wikimedia Conference and continue to have its user group status. -Another Believer (talk) 16:27, 21 December 2015 (UTC)Reply

Thanks, Another Believer for submitting your activities report to the Reports page. The way the process works is, once you submit the report I review the report (completed). Now, I submit a request to AffCom to renew your User Group status and will here back from them within 72 hours. I do not anticipate any problem with your reporting, however, as our offices will be closed for the holiday, it may take a little longer to email you back again and update the eligibility list once approvals have been cleared through AffCom. Please let me know if you have other questions. -JAnstee (WMF) (talk) 18:31, 22 December 2015 (UTC)Reply
Thank you very much for your assistance, Jaime. -Another Believer (talk) 01:53, 23 December 2015 (UTC)Reply
Hello again, Another Believer This message is to draw your attention to the recent updates to the affiliates reporting and conference eligibility pages on meta. There you will find your user group is renewed and is now eligible to register one representative to attend Wikimedia Conference. Thank you for your updated reporting and congratulations on your renewal. - JAnstee (WMF) (talk) 16:45, 28 December 2015 (UTC)Reply

Wikimedia Community User Group Sri Lanka edit

Hi Jaime. Good day to you. Would you be able to help me with {{Affiliates}} (and any related lists/templates), please? I would like to add Wikimedia Community User Group Sri Lanka to it, but I'm unsure if I'm allowed to do so. Kind regards, Rehman 13:36, 29 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

Hello, Rehman. I am a little confused as the template page you reference has already been updated to include Sri Lanka on the User Group page. These are templates that I am responsible to maintain in order to display affiliate names and logos on our main affiliates page. May I ask, what update are you wising to make for Sri Lanka?

Invitation to Training Modules design conversation edit

Hello! We are leaving you this message because you have previously indicated that you interested in helping the Wikimedia Foundation Support & Safety team in developing our training modules this year.

We appreciate all the help and thoughts users like you have offered thus far. We would like to encourage you, if you are interested, to participate in the next step of our development: a community consultation about the design and structure of the modules. Note that we're not yet gathering feedback on the content of the modules - a separate consultation about that will be starting soon.

In this "design" consultation, we're looking for advice on things like the best place to host these modules, the accessibility of content, and other potential design decisions. Please feel free to leave any thoughts you have about these things on the talk page. Thanks! Kbrown (WMF) (talk) 18:07, 8 November 2016 (UTC)Reply

North Carolina Triangle Wikipedians User Group annual reporting edit


I was notified that our annual reporting was past due and have taken care of that, I think. Can you confirm the reporting requirements have been met? If I'm missing anything, please let me know that as well.


Frankcjones (talk) 23:05, 18 November 2016 (UTC)Reply

Hello Frankcjones While your report is now posted, it does not meet all reporting requirements. Specifically, Wikimedia User Groups are required to submit an annual activity report covering the entirety of the 12-month agreement period in order to prompt review for a renewal. This would mean your report should cover all activities from May 22, 2015-May 21, 2016 (Or from May 2015- April 2016). Please send me another note once you have completed this reporting. - Thanks, JAnstee (WMF) (talk) 17:15, 21 November 2016 (UTC)Reply
JAnstee, I've extended the report to include events between May 2015- April 2016. If any additional information is required, please let me know. Thanks, Frankcjones (talk) 02:16, 22 November 2016 (UTC)Reply
Thanks, Frankcjones, I have updated accordingly. - JAnstee (WMF) (talk) 22:22, 23 November 2016 (UTC)Reply

Wikimedia Community User Group Georgia edit

Hello, Jaime! I'm David from the Wikimedia Community User Group Georgia. I want to know why here Wikimedia Community User Group Georgia is marked as inactive? We have 2017 report at our user group page and all reports is up-to-date.--David1010 (talk) 13:54, 12 November 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hello David1010, as noted on your user group talk page, your group has not submitted your required reporting to the meta Reports page.
Wikimedia User Groups are required to submit an annual activity report covering the entirety of the 12-month agreement period in order to prompt review for a renewal. Reports must be written in English, posted to meta, and linked on the meta Reports page.
This page is used to track how organizations and groups are meeting reporting requirements described in their agreements with the Wikimedia Foundation (e.g. chapter agreements, thematic organization agreements, user group agreements). It is the central place where affiliates can add reports about their activities, share their plans, and even news or social media channels with the wider movement. When new reports are available, organizations and groups should add them to this page to keep their columns up to date.
As noted on the meta Reports page, your organization’s 2016-2017 annual reporting became past due in March. Please be sure to
  1. Post your first annual reporting to the meta Reports page as soon as possible to return to compliance with your user group agreement.
  2. Check that your group’s page is also up to date with past report links for historical record-keeping, and
  3. Please send an email to Wikimedia-l in order to share with a movement-wide audience.
Once you do this, the mark will be updated. Thanks, JAnstee (WMF) (talk) 16:40, 13 November 2017 (UTC)Reply
Done--David1010 (talk) 08:58, 14 November 2017 (UTC)Reply
Thanks, David1010, I have updated the eligibility page accordingly JAnstee (WMF) (talk) 21:52, 14 November 2017 (UTC)Reply

Translation of the questions of the survey into German edit

Hello Jaime,

I got a automatic report with the invitation to make the survey today maybe one hour ago. I made it then quickly after I got the E-Mail. In the survey the German translation was not in every case good. Can you please give me a list of the questions and the German translation and is it possible to change the German translation. I think it should be done. Because it is not good for the Image of the Wikimedia Foundation if you publish a survey and the translation contains mistakes. I asked the question also at the discussion page of the survey. Please answer soon to my question. Because I think the current situation is not good for the Reputation of the Wikimedia Foundation and the way how user from other countries see the WMF. -- Hogü-456 (talk) 18:44, 10 September 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hello Hogü-456, I am Rebecca Maung, and I am managing the Community Insights survey this year. Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention! The survey was translated from English by a third-party service, and we tried to have volunteer translators review each language version to fix errors. We only had two weeks to conduct this review, and did not find a reviewer for every language, so, unfortunately, the German translation did not get reviewed. I understand your concerns, and agree that it is important to have high-quality translations of the survey. If you are still offering your help with improving the German translation, you can do so on this google sheet]. I'll continue to monitor it and make changes to the survey as they are recommended. Again, I greatly appreciate your feedback. RMaung (WMF) (talk) 16:50, 11 September 2019 (UTC)Reply

Pilot Enrollment: Equity Landscape Metrics & Dashboard edit

Hi @JAnstee (WMF):,

Thank you for your interest in piloting the Wikimedia Movement Data Landscape dashboard and metrics. Through this small pilot we will be completing pre-beta testing of these new metrics and tool functions. We intend to gather feedback from community stakeholders on the data elements and dashboard functions for improvements before launching an initial public dashboard. In order to proceed, we must ensure that all pilot participants meet each of the eligibility requirements:

  1. Have an applicable use case during the pilot period (February - March 2022),
  2. Commit to engage during the pilot period, and
  3. Agree to sign a data non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for early data access.

If you meet these requirements, you are now invited to next steps for enrolling in the pilot. In order to help us align virtual sessions with your use case interests and to send you the required NDA, we need you to complete a google survey to share your contact details. Use of the data collected by this survey form will be governed by our published privacy statement. Please complete the survey at your earliest convenience, and before the end of day January 23, 2022 to ensure needed turn-around time for the pilot’s start in February. Please also note that we will not be able to associate contact information shared via the google survey with your username we are communicating through here, so we will not be able to know if you have signed up and will switch to contacting pilot participants via the email they share in that survey submission. Thus there will not be further reminders beyond a note at the start of the meta consultation period in February. If you run into any challenges, however, please message us so that we might assist you. Once again, we thank you for your time and participation. -- NaRay (WMF) (talk) 22:09, 11 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

We need your feedback on a tool from the Wikimedia Summit edit

Reminder: the guide to using Baserow, presented during the Wikimedia Summit.

Hi! I'm contacting you as one of the participants in the Wikimedia Summit 2022, to kindly ask for your feedback through a 5-10 minute survey to evaluate 'Baserow' (note: the survey is on a Google form).

Baserow was a tool through which participants in the Summit co-created a database of Movement Strategy activities. We hope to learn from you how useful it may be to keep using it in the future to help document and connect on Movement Strategy work.

You are welcome and encouraged to fill out the survey in any language. Your feedback would be very appreciated --Abbad (WMF) (talk) 15:38, 16 February 2023 (UTC).Reply
