Sunday February 21 Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network meetingEdit

 
We are a mosiac.

The Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network (SWAN) is a developing forum for all Wikimedia movement affiliates to share ideas on the Wikimedia 2030 strategy process. It expands on the model of the All-Affiliates Brand Meeting to help lay some of the groundwork for a future Global Council.

Following up on the August, September, October, November, and January SWAN meetings and June's All-Affiliates Brand Meeting, as well as strategic and outreach topics of mutual concern to all affiliates, this month we are meeting on Sunday February 21, and you are all invited to RSVP here.

To help set priorities for the SWAN agenda, and also to help manage which global conversations should be a focus in general, we have set up and invite everyone to participate at this SWAN priorities form.

Possible topics include Community Board seats, Interim Global Council, Strategy prioritization follow-up events, Branding, Universal Code of Conduct, Grant strategy, and WMF CEO search. That is a lot of things, which are most important to cover in our upcoming SWAN meeting?

Following the regular call, in SWAN after hours: Wikimedia Meet Jitsi social event with brainstorming for possible Nano Charter ideas, plus any other topics.

MassMessageEdit

Hi! I would appreciate if you review MassMessage, especially the part about the links. On wmua:Обговорення:Вікімедіа Україна#UCoC Affiliates consultation report I see that you have attempted to link to some Meta-Wiki pages and use some Meta-Wiki templates in your message, but unfortunately all or some of those wikis do not exist in other wikis. Also I would personally prefer to avoid using URL shortener for what can be expressed with internal links. Sorry if you have already noticed this yourself. --Base (talk) 12:20, 28 May 2021 (UTC)

@Base: Hello! Thank you for bringing this to my attention, and I apologize that I don't quite take Affiliates that has its own wiki outside of Meta but listed on the delivery list into account. I will personally change the broken links one by one, as soon as possible. As for the URL shortener, I use Special:UrlShortener, which works fine and is an onwiki tool; but if you don't want pages affiliated with your Affiliate/project be tagged with the shortened URLs in the future, please let me know. Best, RamzyM (WMF) (talk) 14:20, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
Thank you! UrlShortener is a wonderful tool in some cases, mainly when you have to share the link outside, such as on social media, but I think I would not be alone in wanting to see where the link goes when it is used on wiki, so an internal link like [[interwiki-prefix:page]] works better (social media also commonly provide some form of link preview, so it is less of an issue there, but this is not the case on wiki pages). I might be picky in this one though, the main thing is for the links to be functional at all, so thank you again for committing to fix them! --Base (talk) 19:38, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
