Thanks for your participation during the Inspire Campaign focused on outreach to outside knowledge networks from February 2017. I'm interested in hearing your experience during the campaign, so if you're able, I invite you to complete this brief survey to describe how you contributed to the campaign and how you felt about participating. I want to improve how campaigns are run, so let me know if there's something that could be done better for next time.

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاتهEdit
كنت قد نشرت صفحة بالفرنسية تخص أهم مركز للتكوين المهني في تونس في تكنولوجيا السيارات، و كموظفين في وزارة التكوين المهني و التشغيل التونسية لم نكن نتوقع أن يكون الأمر بهذه الصعوبة. فقد تحالف أدمينات فرنسيون و بلجيكيون لمحو الصفحة بداية بتعلة حقوق التأليف ثم بدون سبب ثم بتعلة أن المركز غير معروف بعد نقاش لم يقدموا فيه أي سبب مقنع و كانوا قد طلبوا مساعدة أدمن نصف تونسي نصف سويسري الذي قام بحملة الإلغاء و أرسلي لي أنه يمكن نشر الصفحة في المستقبل إذا أصبح المركز معروفا.. هذا المركز أسس في سنة 1960 و به حوالي الألف سنويا ممن يزاولون تعليمهم من مختلف الجنسيات التونسية و الإفريقية و العربية..شعرنا حقيقة أن منصة ويكيبيديا لا تعترف إلا بما كان معروفا في فرنسا مثلا، و تبقى حكرا على ما يقره أدمينات فرنسا الذين من الأكيد لا يسمعون و لا يهتمون بمؤسسات دول عربية من العالم الثالث لا تتحدث عنها الصحافة الفرنسية أو البلجيكية.. طلب المساعدة يخص موضوع نشر الصفحة بالعربية و الفرنسية و الانجليزية دون أن يعود حلف الأدمينات الفرنسيين الذين أخذوا الأمر من منطلق شخصي لتعطيل صفحة تخص مؤسسة من أعرق المؤسسات التعليمية التونسية، و بذلك تكون منصة ويكيبيديا مفتوحة لكل ماهو معروف في جميع دول العالم عند شعوبها بقطع النظر عن الجنس و الدين و الأصل و الإمكانيات الاقتصادية و الإعلامية لشعوب هذه الدول التي تكابد لإيصال صوتها. شكرا جزيلا على قراءة هذه المقالة أولا ثم شكرا على المبادرة بتقديم الإرشاد و النصيحة، و السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته. أخوكم من تونس موظف بوزارة التكوين المهني و التشغيل.

[Wikipedia & Education User Group] Updates: November 2018Edit
Integrating Wikimedia with education is a powerful strategy for the outreach of Wikimedia projects. Realising this concept, a group of leaders promoted this and formed the Wikipedia Education Collaborative. After some time, this evolved to become a user group, officially recognised by the Affiliations Committee in June 2018. The user group had its first board elections earlier in September. In the process to formalise activities and give a shape the user group for long-term sustainability, we are now revamping our processes. Thanks for supporting us during incubation stages, we are now inviting you to formally join the user group by following the instructions on the members' page. Being a member will allow you to be a part of this wonderful collaboration and also do interesting stuff.

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.
