Chapters news on Main Page Goings-onEdit
- Do you want to have a separate section for chapters news? πr2 (t • c) 20:32, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
- Hi and sorry for being late. Thanks for the reply, I wasn't sure if I am like "allowed" to add this kind of news there. :) As long as we don't we don't have a task force for those chapter related news, I am totally fine with adding them on the general goings-on section. Cheers! --Nicole Ebber (WMDE) (talk) 20:07, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
Wikimedia Chapters Survey. :)Edit
I am running a small research study for WCA and Wikimania 2013 and I would like to ask you for a favour. :)
I have created a following draft: Wikimedia Chapters Association/Research/Survey 1 - the idea is that particular chapters could easily give their answers in their pace simply by editing a subpage dedicated to their own organization.
Before I create their subpages I would like to consult with you about the questions - I still feel I might have some improvements here. :) I do not want to ask to many questions as the people may stop responding completely but I would like to ask you what question would you add, change, remove? :)
Aaand certainly I could count on you and your chapter in filling the forms? :)
- Thanks for your response. :) Your help will be vital - this is too much data mining for one volunteer with somewhat limited time, I am afraid, but it would be cool to do that. Your subpage is here. :)

Chapters Dialogue Results Made Public?Edit
It would be nice to have a list of the statements/sticky notes you and Kira prepared from your research for the Chapter's Dialogue so we can use this data for further research and examination.

- Hi MarcoAurelio, thanks for this notice. Please go ahead and delete the file right away. We used this logo in 2012 for the Wikimedia Conference, as it was hosted in the premises of Club Office. They allowed us to use the logo, but I do not have a written agreement regarding the copyright status. Thanks! --Nicole Ebber (WMDE) (talk) 20:46, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Merry Christmas and happy new yearEdit
Help decide the future of WikimaniaEdit
The Wikimedia Foundation is currently running a consultation on the value and planning process of Wikimania, and is open until 18 January 2016. The goals are to (1) build a shared understanding of the value of Wikimania to help guide conference planning and evaluation, and (2) gather broad community input on what new form(s) Wikimania could take (starting in 2018).
After reviewing the consultation, we'd like to hear your feedback on on this survey.
In addition, feel free to share any personal experiences you have had at at a Wikimedia movement conference, including Wikimania. We plan to compile and share back outcomes from this consultation in February.
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,
Towards a New Wikimania resultsEdit
Last December, I invited you to share your views on the value of Wikimedia conferences and the planning process of Wikimania. We have completed analysis of these results and have prepared this report summarizing your feedback and important changes for Wikimania starting in 2018 as an experiment. Feedback and comments are welcome at the discussion page. Thank you so much for your participation. I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources, 22:47, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
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,
Review of initial updates on Wikimedia movement strategy processEdit
Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. Message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.
The Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. For 15 years, Wikimedians have worked together to build the largest free knowledge resource in human history. During this time, we've grown from a small group of editors to a diverse network of editors, developers, affiliates, readers, donors, and partners. Today, we are more than a group of websites. We are a movement rooted in values and a powerful vision: all knowledge for all people. As a movement, we have an opportunity to decide where we go from here.
This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve. We hope to design an inclusive process that makes space for everyone: editors, community leaders, affiliates, developers, readers, donors, technology platforms, institutional partners, and people we have yet to reach. There will be multiple ways to participate including on-wiki, in private spaces, and in-person meetings. You are warmly invited to join and make your voice heard.
The immediate goal is to have a strategic direction by Wikimania 2017 to help frame a discussion on how we work together toward that strategic direction.
Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Beginning with this message, monthly reviews of these updates will be sent to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

When you return from vacationEdit
Hi Nicole, when you return from vacation, please see:
- Talk:WALRUS/March 2018#Preparation for the April meeting
Hi Nicole, please see the discussion in the thread https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wiki-research-l/2018-March/006234.html which I mentioned above. Also, please respond to https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-l/2018-May/090367.html regarding the Structures and Systems prong of the strategy track, and to Micru's implied question in https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-l/2018-May/090375.html regarding how to add new ideas into the strategy process. Thank you, --Pine✉ 03:40, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
Hi. There seems to be a problem with the application for Strategic Groups -- it requests that name and email is filled out with numbers not letters. Thanks for the hard work on this! --Joalpe (talk) 23:41, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
You may wish to commentEdit
Hi Nicole, I added a request on  that relates to the strategy project. You may have an opinion. If you wish to not proceed, I'll happily withdraw the request. --Philippe (talk) 01:17, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Empfehlungen der Arbeitsgruppe DiversityEdit
Hallo Nicole Ebber, da Du das Core-Team Strategy leitest, würde ich mich freuen, wenn Du vielleicht Stellung beziehen könntest zu den doch recht erstaunlichen Empfehlungen der Arbeitsgruppe Diversity. Ich wurde durch diese Diskussion darauf aufmerksam und das bemerkenswerte Zitat „The classic notion of an encyclopaedia and ‘universal knowledge’ needs to be discarded“ dürfte von den Wikipedianern wohl kaum mit freudiger Erwartung aufgenommen werden (Recommendation # 2, Q3a, Punkt 4). Die Empfehlungen nehmen auch ansonsten keine Gefangenen und wenden sich konkret gegen die ehernen Grundprinzipien wie WP:NPOV oder die freie Lizenzierung. Das lässt nicht wenige sprachlos zurück und wir fragen uns natürlich, was da möglicherweise auf uns zukommt. Ich gestehe offen, dass ich diese Strategie-Prozesse bislang nicht sonderlich verfolgt habe und viele andere wohl auch nicht. Zumindest im Kurier wurde das (meines Wissens) wohl auch nicht eingehend behandelt. Ich habe eine Diskussion hierzu eröffnet in der Hoffnung, dass mit etwas Aufklärung das alles nur wie ein böser Traum aussieht. Es lässt sich sicherlich vieles verbessern und es ist auch sinnvoll, solche Prozesse dazu anzustoßen. Aber die Grundprinzipien sollten doch nicht wirklich zur Debatte stehen, oder? Gerade nach WP:FRAMGATE wäre es hilfreich, wenn eine weitere Eskalationsspirale zwischen WMF und den Gemeinschaften vermieden werden könnte. Viele Grüße, AFBorchert (talk) 14:35, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
- Inzwischen gibt es einen von Tinz veröffentlichten Kurierartikel dazu: Strategy 2018-20: Ein WMF-Komitee empfiehlt, die Enzyklopädie abzuschaffen.
