Hi Nicole. Wollte nur Fragen ob die Weiterleitungen gelöscht werden sollen? --WizardOfOz talk 18:18, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Chapters news on Main Page Goings-onEdit

Why not just add that to Template:Main Page/WM News? You don't need to be an admin to modify it. πr2 (t • c) 20:31, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

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)

Danke!Edit

Danke für die vollständige Übersetzung :) notafish }<';> 07:25, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Gern geschehen. Der Dank gilt natürlich auch Cornelius Kibelka. :) --Nicole Ebber (WMDE) (talk) 10:41, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

I saw you translated my statement into German. I appreciate your time doing that. Thank you. MBisanz talk 20:33, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

My pleasure. :) --Nicole Ebber (WMDE) (talk) 17:35, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Wikimedia Chapters Survey. :)Edit

Hello Nicole!

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? :)

Best Regards!

aegis maelstrom δ 14:10, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

  • 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. :)
Best,
aegis maelstrom δ 15:29, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
I have added some Feedback here. --Nicole Ebber (WMDE) (talk) 19:00, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! I've tried to respond best I could. Honestly, if you have any ideas or requirements for Chapters' Dialogue, shoot, I will try to adjust. It is for a sake of co-operation, after all. :)

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. I'm going to send you an email with my further thoughts on this but also wanted to post it publicly. OR drohowa (talk) 13:54, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Copyright problem with File:CLUBOFFICE-Logo-quer.jpgEdit

Thank you for uploading File:CLUBOFFICE-Logo-quer.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at this page. Thanks again for your cooperation. —MarcoAurelio 10:20, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

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)
Hallo. I've deleted the file. Thanks for your response. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 20:49, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

What future IdeaLab campaigns would you like to see?Edit

Hi there,

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:

Take care,

I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources, Wikimedia Foundation. 03:33, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Merry Christmas and happy new yearEdit

Merry Christmas and happy new year. (:

Thanks so much, Pine! That's really lovely. Happy new year to you, too. :) --Nicole Ebber (WMDE) (talk) 17:12, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

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.

With thanks,

I JethroBT (WMF) (talk), from Community Resources 23:46, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

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,

I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources, Wikimedia Foundation. 23:55, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

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.

With thanks, I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources 15:57, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Participate in the Inspire Campaign and help address harassment!Edit

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.

Here is a review of the updates that have been sent so far:

More information about the movement strategy is available on the Meta-Wiki 2017 Wikimedia movement strategy portal.

ApplicationEdit

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)

Ups, thank you for spotting this! We have now adjusted the form. --Nicole Ebber (WMDE) (talk) 00:27, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

You may wish to commentEdit

Hi Nicole, I added a request on [1] 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)
