Soft close page of Norwegian WikinewsEdit
@Jon Harald Søby (so I can catch you either way): Please have a look at n:no:Wikinytt:Forside/soft. I wrote this out in English and machine-translated it to Norwegian, but I'd like you to have a look to fix the Norwegian before I move everything into place. Thanks.

WLM: European Special Award - European Cultural HeritageEdit
Dear Jon Harald,
as one of this year's local WLM organizers, we want to let you know about a special award being distributed this year.
One aspect is a special award that will be given within the WLM contest for the pictures that best capture European Cultural Heritage (the final formulation for the criteria will be published soon). An international jury will be choosing the winners from the national submissions made by the national juries to the international WLM contest.
The following prizes will be awarded to the winners:
- 1. Up to € 1000 in in-kind prize,
- 2. Up to € 700 in in-kind prize,
- 3. Up to € 300 in in-kind prize.
We invite you to spread this information in your national contest and with your national jury, making them aware of this special opportunity. The winners will be announced at the end of the year. More info on criteria and distribution will be published soon on the international WLM site. The German project site can be found here.
In case you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Uralic languages contestEdit
Hi. I have joined the contest, but I'm writing in Ukrainian. Can I participate in this way? And where should I write about created articles? And what about Turkic languages of Ural region, like Bashkir, Tatar or Chuvash? Best wishes, --Visem (talk) 11:44, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
- @Visem: Hi, and thanks for joining the contest! Yes, you are very welcome to write in Ukrainian – I will add a column for it in the templates right away. You don't need to keep track of the created articles yourself, I will compile a list at the end of the contest. Hopefully we can use the UKbot system, but if not, I will find another way to do it. For the other languages, they are very welcome to partake in the contest too! Jon Harald Søby (WMNO) (talk) 11:04, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
The Affiliate-selected Board seats process welcomes your supportEdit
Hello. You are receiving this message because you are active in the field of translations <3 The movement needs you! The Nominations phase has started for the ongoing selection process of two Board members, and the timeline is quite tight.
A Translation Central is available to help translators figure out what's been covered and what's left to do. Over the course of the next few weeks, your attention on candidates' profiles is particularly welcome.
While there are four languages that are especially relevant for multiple affiliates (namely Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish), you can also add others. If you can't help: please see if you know anyone in your circle who could, and spread the word :) Thank you! Elitre (WMF) and Facilitators of ASBS 2019, 13:20, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
The Research team could use your helpEdit
Hello. You are receiving this message because of your recent activity in the Translations namespace.
The Wikimedia Research team is developing a new algorithm that automatically recommends sections for editors to add to articles. Translations have already occurred for some of the few languages that we are testing in, except for Spanish and Russian. If you have some time in the next few days, please consider translating the short message (only 6 items) we aim to send out soon, in one or both of these languages. (And if you feel like you want to support your tester peers even more, you can do so by taking care of the related instructions page.)
