How can we improve Wikimedia grants to support you better?Edit
Hi! The Wikimedia Foundation would like your input on how we can reimagine Wikimedia Foundation grants to better support people and ideas in your Wikimedia project.
After reading the Reimagining WMF grants idea, we ask you to complete this survey to help us improve the idea and learn more about your experience. When you complete the survey, you can enter to win one of five Wikimedia globe sweatshirts!
In addition to taking the the survey, you are welcome to participate in these ways:
- Respond to questions on the discussion page of the idea.
- Join a small group conversation.
- Learn more about this consultation.
This survey is in English, but feedback on the discussion page is welcome in any language.
Last call for WMF grants feedback!Edit
Hi, this is a reminder that the consultation about Reimagining WMF grants is closing on 8 September (0:00 UTC). We encourage you to complete the survey now, if you haven't yet done so, so that we can include your ideas.
What future IdeaLab campaigns would you like to see?Edit
I’m Jethro, and I’m seeking your help in deciding topics for new IdeaLab campaigns that could be run starting next year. These campaigns aim to bring in proposals and solutions from communities that address a need or problem in Wikimedia projects. I'm interested in hearing your preferences and ideas for campaign topics!
Here’s how to participate:
- Learn more about this consultation
- Vote on and submit new campaign topics in the AllOurIdeas Survey
- Discuss campaign topics and ask questions on the IdeaLab talk page
Future IdeaLab Campaigns resultsEdit
Last December, I invited you to help determine future ideaLab campaigns by submitting and voting on different possible topics. I'm happy to announce the results of your participation, and encourage you to review them and our next steps for implementing those campaigns this year. Thank you to everyone who volunteered time to participate and submit ideas.
With great thanks,
Inspire Campaign on content curation & reviewEdit
I've recently launched an Inspire Campaign to encourage new ideas focusing on content review and curation in Wikimedia projects. Wikimedia volunteers collaboratively manage vast repositories of knowledge, and we’re looking for your ideas about how to manage that knowledge to make it more meaningful and accessible. We invite you to participate and submit ideas, so please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 28th.
All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is welcome - your skills and experience can help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign to improve review and curation tasks so that we can make our content more meaningful and accessible! I JethroBT (WMF) 05:39, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
Open Call for Individual Engagement GrantsEdit
Greetings! The Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) program is accepting proposals until April 12th to fund new tools, research, outreach efforts, and other experiments that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers. Whether you need a small or large amount of funds (up to $30,000 USD), IEGs can support you and your team’s project development time in addition to project expenses such as materials, travel, and rental space.
- Submit a grant request or draft your proposal in IdeaLab
- Get help with your proposal in an upcoming Hangout session
- Learn from examples of completed Individual Engagement Grants
Through June, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas focusing on addressing harassment toward Wikimedia contributors. The 2015 Harassment Survey has shown evidence that harassment in various forms - name calling, threats, discrimination, stalking, and impersonation, among others - is pervasive. Available methods and systems to deal with harassment are also considered to be ineffective. These behaviors are clearly harmful, and in addition, many individuals who experience or witness harassment participate less in Wikimedia projects or stop contributing entirely.
Proposals in any language are welcome during the campaign - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign so that we can work together to develop ideas around this important and difficult issue. With thanks,
Plan d'action Wikimédia FranceEdit
Bonjour ! Je me suis permise de modifier ta proposition (ce que tu avais mis en contexte relève pour moi plus de l'impact) en y ajoutant la position de la Fondation, j'espère que ça te va :) Léna (talk) 09:54, 23 December 2016 (UTC) Merci Lena.
Mise à jour de la page FemmesEdit
Salut miss. Pourrait-tu mettre à jour la page Women afin d'y ajouter les projets francophones actuels (ou légèrement passés), a priori, les sans pages et tes ateliers ? Merci Anthere (talk) Salut à toi Anthere aussi! Je le ferai promis. --Nattes à chat (talk) 09:03, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
There has been a request to inform all who voted in the RfC about interlinking accounts involved with paid editing about the following adjustment in the "statement of issue" on Sept 18th, 2017.
It was clarified that this effort will help deal not only with impersonation of specific Wikipedians but also claims of being in good standing made by those who are not. Thanks. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:59, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
Sans page logoEdit
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Women : à mettre à jour
Ne pouvant pas être présent à l'AG et appréciant votre profession de foi j'aimerai vous donner procuration.
Je vous ai mentionné sur la page procuration mais si cela ne vous convient pas je l'effacerai bien sûr.
- C'est ok pour moi! --Nattes à chat (talk) 16:13, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
- Hi again. We will have a call all together about WAF in the next future, ok? Hear from you soon. --CristianNX (talk) 16:13, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
OK so yes we will indeed later! Postponed, bad luck. Cheers, --Nattes à chat (talk) 01:13, 17 January 2018 (UTC) I have gone forward with the idea of listing witches in the alpine regions. We have advanced quite a lot, enough to be able to propose a list of content to be updated during a WikiAlpenforum editathon. See here: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Projet:Les_sans_pagEs/Carte_des_sorcières_notoires?veaction=edit§ion=2#Wikidata. When are we having that skype call? Poke @CristianNX, Opsylac, Rémy WMFr, and Camelia.boban:. We need discuss if we can have a wikialpen forum in Samoens or at the french wikiconvention in Grenoble. I'm pinging Camelia as she could be interested in the subject too! --Nattes à chat (talk) 06:58, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
- Yes, I'm interested in this topic ;-) --Camelia (talk) 09:43, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
- Just to let you know: we know have a test version of the map that will be able to include language links and be updated automatically throught listeria bot and lua thanks to the work of User:0x010C. The test is here : https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utilisateur:0x010C/Brouillon, So we are ready for a multilingual editathon (maybe also an online contest?) for WikiAlpenForum! We just need to enter all the witches of our list on wikidata with the geolocalisation of their death or sentence. --Nattes à chat (talk) 20:55, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Wikiloves Women 2019Edit
Dear Nattes à chat,
We had a contest Wikiloves Women 2019 from February 10 to March 31. My understanding is that Wiki Loves Love 2019 is a photocontest. I cannot figure out how an article come into a photo contest. So can you explain that thing. These are the articles in Wiki Loves Women. ---Ranjithsiji (talk) 03:31, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your participation in Wiki Loves Love wikipedia contest 2019Edit

Congratulations on being the winner of Wiki Loves Love postcard prize.
Please make sure that you fill this form by 20th April, so we can collect details for the address.

The TWUG on space.wmflabs.orgEdit
Hello Nattes à chat
A few months ago, WMF opened a new discussion space. Since our user group has some difficulties to communicate (not everyone sees the messages that are posted on Talk:Wiktionary/Tremendous_Wiktionary_User_Group), I asked for a dedicated forum for the TWUG to be opened. It's happening here (there is no topic so far).
AfroCine: Join the Months of African Cinema this October!Edit
After a successful first iteration of the Months of African Cinema last year, we are happy to announce that it will be happening again this year, starting from October 1! In the 2018 edition of the contest, about 600 Wikipedia articles were created in at least 8 languages. There were also contributions to Wikidata and Wikimedia commons, which brought the total number of wikimedia pages created during the contest to over 1,000. About 9 in-person events were also organised for the edit-a-thon in different parts of the world.
The contest is organized by a Wikimedia project called The AfroCine Project, which is dedicated to improving the coverage of the history, works, people, places, and events, that are associated with the cinema, theatre and arts of Africa, African countries, the Caribbean, and the diaspora.
If you would love to join this exciting event, please list your username as a participant on the English Wikipedia contest page. If you would love to lead this contest for your country or community, please list your name in the coordinators' page here. The rapid grants team would be accepting proposals throughout October and November, in case you'd need funds to run local edit-a-thons or some other activities related to this event. Upon listing your name on the coordinators' page, you'd be contacted to talk about the resources you'd need to run the event in your community. You can also contact me directly for any clarifications.
Finally, We also need volunteers to handle some aspects of the AfroCine project. These aspects include:
- Community Liaison: This role essentially involves closely engaging with local communities to support their activities within the scope of Afrocine.
- Communications: This involves the communications aspects of the project. Sharing relevant information on mailing lists and social media would be the responsibility of this person.
- MAC Jury: This role involves joining the jury of Months of African Cinema contest. We need as many people as we can get 🙂.
- Tools: Going forward, we would need relevant tools to better track the metrics and also analyse the general impact of these events. We are calling for Wikimedia volunteers who can navigate wikimedia tools that can be useful for the project.
If you would love to help with any of these roles, or some other roles that have not been mentioned, please contact me directly or on: samoye_ hotmail.com
If you have further questions, complaints, suggestions, etc., please reach out to me personally or right here or the project talkpages.
