Individual Engagement GrantsEdit
Hi User: Jaluj, Nice to meet you after a very long time! It feels great to know that you are interested in the research! I have some understanding of clinical psychiatry, but I am not into psychology. It would be just great if you'd like to take up the project. As you might know, you could apply for a grant to cover the expenses involved in pursuing the research. Please see that you can modify the research question in whichever way you want. It is also fine to conduct the research in Spanish, we are looking for diversity in terms of language and geography. The last date for proposing complete submissions is 15th of February, so you've got to be quick! Please let me know if you have any questions.Thanks! --Netha Hussain (talk) 09:59, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Attawapiskat First NationEdit
Re: Wikipedia Outreach: Please see this topic on Jimbo's talk page. I am contacting our chapters in Canada, Argentina and Finland for us all to work together to reach out to the vulnerable youth at Attawapiskat First Nation to promote Wikipedia editing and other wiki projects. I am very good on the phone so that is where I can be of most use. Right now I have a vision, subject to change should you having different ideas, of 1 or more of us using email and/or telephone and or Skype to communicated directly with individuals, groups, and local teachers promoting and illustrating how much fun and education they can have through Wiki editing. Please communicate back to me via my talk page as time is of the essence I think. Nocturnalnow (talk) 15:31, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
Sobre la "Guía con criterios para evaluar artículos en un concurso"Edit
Como pediste comentarios, ¡aquí me tienes! A ver, tras una lectura rápida a la Guía con criterios para evaluar artículos en un concurso se me ocurre principalmente una cuestión y es en relación a las referencias, que es uno de los aspectos que más me preocupa.
Si tenemos en cuenta que las referencias son la base de todo artículo y que son las que fundamentan lo que leemos, ¿no se podría añadir que las referencias deben ser revisadas y comprobar si estas fundamentan el contenido por el que han sido puestas? Te pongo un caso personal en el que intervine porque me lo solicitaron: el artículo de Amaro Pargo, que sinceramente fue un quebradero de cabeza.
Si le echas un vistazo al apartado "Problemas que resolver en el artículo" de su página de discusión sabrás todos los problemas que tenía. Pero uno, y el que considero más importante, era el de las referencias. Amaro Pargo es un personaje histórico y por lo tanto, su artículo debería estar fundamentado con fuentes que fundamenten ese contenido; sin embargo, no creo que valga cualquier fuente para cualquier dato: por ejemplo, en la versión que revisé se señalaba que fue pirata e incluso un romance con sor María de Jesús ―una monja de Tenerife―, pero estos datos no estaban fundamentados por ningún documento científico ―tesis, articulo en revista científica, obra...―, sino por una serie de artículos publicados en periódicos y partes de novelas. La mayoría de las referencias del artículo eran artículos periodísticos y páginas webs turísticas y de autoría desconocida, que a su vez no tenían referencias, y un último recurso: obras literarias. Siento este tostón sobre Amaro Pargo, pero me ayuda a ilustrar lo que pretendo expresar a continuación.
Entonces, teniendo en cuenta que las referencias son esenciales, creo que hay que distinguir entre los diferentes tipos de contenido que existen y qué uso se le puede, o se le debería, dar a cada uno. Los artículos periodísticos son una fuente que todos sabemos que hay que tratar con delicadeza y por supuesto, creo que son excelentes para referencias acontecimientos actuales o de hace poco tiempo, además de para fundamentar menciones, premios u otros datos por el estilo; pero un artículo en el ABC o eldiario.es ―por poner dos periódicos― no debería ser utilizado para fundamentar artículos científicos, salvo que tenga referencias científicas o esté escrito por un personalidad versada en el tema ―sea un historiador, un biólogo, un etnoarqueólogo...―. Con las páginas webs o blogs ocurre lo mismo, ¿quién las escribe? ¿qué ha utilizado para elaborar lo que ha escrito? ¿es una fuente primaria?; seamos claros, no podemos confiar en lo que diga cualquier sitio web ni en lo que diga cualquier persona, y menos sin referencias claras o difícilmente consultables ―un ejemplo son las páginas webs turísticas, sobre las que además debemos tener en cuenta que su objetivo es hacer atractivo un destino―. Que conste que me apasiona leer, sobre todo novelas históricas, sin olvidar que no son obras científicas y que sus autores, aunque investigan para fundamentarlas, se toman sus licencias para modificar los acontecimientos históricos; por ejemplo, en el caso de Amaro Pargo, no podemos utilizar novelas para fundamentar leyendas, hechos dudosos o que directamente no ocurrieron, sin embargo, si son muy útiles para los apartados "En la cultura popular" o "Desde el punto vista literaria" ―o cualquier otro de índole semejante―.
Como ya me he liado demasiado y tal y como tengo la cabeza, no cuadro muy bien las ideas, creo que por hoy te voy a dejar este comentario, concluyendo que creo que se debería realizar un análisis exhaustivo de las referencias que se utilizan para la elaboración de artículos, sobre todo en los concursos, que puede que por cuestiones de tiempo se pille lo que más a mano esté. Volveré a pensar en este asunto y por supuesto, ¡estaré encantado de seguir echándole un ojo a futuras modificaciones!

Wikimedia diversity - What happened at the conference and how to follow upEdit
We are messaging you now because you signed up as an ambassador for Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017. We are sharing this message far and wide, so apologies in advance if you are receiving this message twice.
During the conference, we dedicated a full afternoon to discussing the strategic direction and what it means for the work on diversity in the Wikimedia movement. Compiling the outcomes of those conversations, we summarized the key problems and solutions identified, and we created a summary statement. But the conversation is far from over! We still need to hear from diversity ambassadors: (1) what does working for diversity mean at your local context?; (2) what are the needs that should be addressed; (3) what resources are relevant for these identified needs?
We know that diversity gains meaning in context, and this is why we need to hear every voice. Please take a few minutes to go over to the diversity conversation page and add your comments.
If you’d like to stay in touch, and share your experience working for diversity with others, add your profile on our group here.
Thank you and see you on the wiki,

Thank you for your endorsement of our Project Grant proposal "Community Toolkit for Greater Diversity". We are happy to convey to you that the proposal has been funded.
One of the wiki periodicals featured a write-up of your program of therapy in hospitals using the editing of Wikiquote. Great stuff! Having worked with challenged children, I know that building self-esteem can be a key to mental health and overall development. I find that it works for me, personally, as well. I just wanted to give a bit of feedback. Breaking tasks into tiny, bite-sized increments works so well with the physically and mentally challenged. That's how I learned to edit Wikipedia as well. A natural fit, but one which took a special person to think of and implement. Ya done good, is all I'm trying to say.

Artistas mujeres argentinasEdit
I noticed that you have signed up as a Wikimedia Diversity Ambassador, after the Diversity Conference held in Stockholm 2017. In August this year, Wikimania will take place in Stockholm, and our goal is to use Ambassadors to reach out to local communities, to spread the news about the conference and the outcomes afterwards. The conference theme (still to be announced) will connect closely to diversity. If you would like to be involved as a Wikimania ambassador, please sign up at the Ambassador page at the Wikimania wiki!
A first thing to do, if you would like to help out, would be to translate the scholarship page at the Wikimania wiki into the language(s) you speak!

Upcoming 2019 Affiliate-selected trustee position on the Board of Wikimedia FoundationEdit
Greetings Ms. Kleiman,
My name is Gerald Shields, also known as user:Geraldshields11. I am asking for your top rank vote for me, or second rank vote, in the election for one of two open trustee positions on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees.
In addition, I answered all of the specific and general questions to the candidates, including the one you asked.
I am asking for your vote to help support emerging communities and promote an inclusive education environment on all wiki projects. Also, I plan to promote various other issues as I mention in my statement and answers to various questions. I ask that you show your support for the issues that need to be address by voting for me as one of your preferences.
My candidacy information page is Affiliate-selected Board seats/2019/Nominations/Gerald Shields on Meta or can be found at Gerald Shields candidate. As of the 7 May 2019 list of questions, I am the only candidate to have responded to all of the “Questions for all candidates - Questions for this individual candidate that do not apply to other candidates”. My answers give more details on why the Muj(lh)eres latinoamericanas en Wikimedia should vote for me.
Thank you for your time, discussion, and consideration of my candidacy. I appreciate it.
My best regards,

Iberocoop and rebrandingEdit
Hi. I noticed a comment you made, and as I write this I am stunned to realize it was one year and two months ago. In particular your comment read in part In all the meetings in which I participate, people opossed. I asked many people, I'm part of Iberocoop and I still couldn't find a chapter or user group from there that tells me they supported the [rebranding] proposal... The overall feeling of many wikimedians I talk to is that communities are not heard.
Well, over a year later and the overall feeling of the people I talk to remains the same as the people you spoke to. The Foundation is aggressively not-hearing us. I'm not sure if you have followed the issue, but there was an RFC with 92% consensus (540 opposed to the Foundation calling itself Wikipedia), then an open letter signed by over a 1,050 editors and affiliates, the Board has "paused" the process and has defined a committee. The committee will offer the Board advice on how to proceed, then the Board will decide how to proceed.
Either by design or by statistically-implausible-accident, the committee-rules appear to be covertly stacked to maximize the opportunity for the committee to be dominated by fringe-minority individuals. (In other words, dominated by people who support renaming the Foundation as "Wikipedia" in some form.) The committee is defined here. Two of the seats on the committee are dedicated to the "Global South / emerging and underrepresented communities". Specifically, five individuals are to be supplied from Wiki Indaba, ESEAP, IberoCoop, the India lists, and the Brazilian community, then the Board will select two of them.
When I saw your comment, I came here. I hoped you had Iberocoop contacts and maybe you could help ensure that the committee-candidate from Iberocoop is aligned with the majority view. Or, in the worst case, to ask you ping me with info if you find out Iberocoop is nominating someone who supports renaming the Foundation as Wikipedia. Alsee (talk) 18:03, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Invitation to participate in Universal Code of Conduct survey - WikiWomen's User GroupEdit
(You are receiving this message as you signed your interest to participate as part of the WikiWomen's User Group)
Hello, my name is Mervat Salman, a UCoC Facilitator, Trust and Safety team.
As you know, the WMF Board of Trustees ratified the Universal Code of Conduct early in February. That's the beginning; the policy itself cannot be used if the enforcement pathways are not defined. The implementation and enforcement of the UCoC requires the continuous cooperation to define clear definitions of enforcement pathways and processes. This needs to be done in a way that does not contradict with the internal bylaws and codes of conduct currently in place, but rather to support them and complement their deficiencies, if any.
In this phase of the process, we would like to invite you to share your ideas, thoughts and concerns about the UCoC implementation, reporting and enforcement pathways using this survey:
Notice: This survey will be conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement <https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/UCoC_Affiliates_Survey_Privacy_Statement>.

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) 14:23, 16 February 2023 (UTC).
