Thanks for your feedback on the grant proposal. I'm curious: what sort of support would you like to see for the sister projects, concretely? Asaf Bartov (WMF Grants) talk 23:09, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
- appropriate promotion and "editor recruitment" for all sister projects (meaning to not just fling some leaflets on table while attending public events)
- for Wikiquote:
- to approach Czech public figures, heirs and photographers with request for missing portraits
- to establish international Wikiquote project to get original wording of quotes in different languages
- for Wiktionary:
- help with accessing specialized sources that are not easily accessible or affordable (especially for pronunciation and etymology)
- help with getting specialist adviser for Slovak language - because of long term stagnation of Slovak Wiktionary and close relation with Czech language, it would be beneficial to incorporate Slovak words into Czech Wiktionary in high quality entries for later use in other Wikitionary versions
- for Wikisource
- establishing closer cooperation with the National Library of the Czech Republic
- for Wikinews
- searching and processing proper information sources workshop
The above mentioned is based on discussion among sisterproject community members. --Lenka64 (talk) 20:29, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
Your comment on SRPEdit
Hi, just a notice, that no more this kind of personal attacks, thanks. --Stryn (talk) 11:41, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
Superprotect letter updateEdit
Along with more hundreds of others, you recently signed Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer, which I wrote.
Today, we have 562 signatures here on Meta, and another 61 on change.org, for a total of 623 signatures. Volunteers have fully translated it into 16 languages, and begun other translations. This far exceeds my most optimistic hopes about how many might sign the letter -- I would have been pleased to gain 200 siguatures -- but new signatures continue to come.
I believe this is a significant moment for Wikimedia and Wikipedia. Very rarely have I seen large numbers of people from multiple language and project communities speak with a unified voice. As I understand it, we are unified in a desire for the Wikimedia Foundation to respect -- in actions, in addition to words -- the will of the community who has built the Wikimedia projects for the benefit of all humanity. I strongly believe it is possible to innovate and improve our software tools, together with the Wikimedia Foundation. But substantial changes are necessary in order for us to work together smoothly and productively. I believe this letter identifies important actions that will strongly support those changes.
Have you been discussing these issues in your local community? If so, I think we would all appreciate an update (on the letter's talk page) about how those discussions have gone, and what people are saying. If not, please be bold and start a discussoin on your Village Pump, or in any other venue your project uses -- and then leave a summary of what kind of response you get on the letter's talk page.
Finally, what do you think is the right time, and the right way, to deliver this letter? We could set a date, or establish a threshold of signatures. I have some ideas, but am open to suggestions.
Thank you for your engagement on this issue, and please stay in touch. -Pete F (talk) 18:48, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
