Upcoming IdeaLab Events: IEG Proposal ClinicsEdit
Hi! You voted for improving plagiarism detection as an important suggestions in the community wishlist survey last year. I'm pinging people who showed interest in that task to tell them we have some suggestions for how things could look, if you'd like to glance at them and give us some feedback. They're available here: phab:T120435#2266283. It's easiest if comments are left in Phabricator, since that's where much of the development is happening, but they can be left on Meta too, of course. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 17:19, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
Approved submissions for Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2017Edit
On behalf of the Programme Committee of the Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2017, I am pleased to inform you that your submission Lua for your wiki and SPARQL for absolute beginners were approved for presentation and were included in the event programme. Please take your time to review the schedule, as there might be some slight differences between the available timeslots allocated for your talks, and the durations you requested. Thank you for your participation, and see you in Warsaw. :) Bests, →Spiritia 19:27, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
Lua table for Bridges across CulturesEdit
Hi Tobias! I just noted that you created a page for Lua tables for the Bridges across Cultures. Thanks for your help! I've been working in a similar one here and you can see the result here, but I'm not an expert in Lua... are you? If you are, then you can help me a lot to include some stuff I don't know how to do (or if it is even possible). Thanks again! --Osmar Valdebenito, B1mbo (talk) 21:31, 21 October 2017 (UTC)
The Community Wishlist SurveyEdit
You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.
You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:25, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2020 submissionEdit
On behalf of the Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2020 programme committee, I am pleased to inform you that your submission "Lua templates for beginners" has been accepted as a workshop and it was scheduled for 08:00 (UTC) on Saturday, 3 October (see the draft schedule). If you have not yet registered for the conference, please follow the instructions on this page. In case you have any additional requests or questions, do not hesitate to contact me or any other committee member.
Help wanted for global templatesEdit
You have shown support for global templates in the past. Staff of the Wikimedia Foundation view this change as big. We need to convince the Wikimedia Foundation to start working on this. We have to reassure them there is sufficient support by local project communities.
You can help move this forward.
Please do setup a page on the local projects you are (most) active on in the language of the project. Tell your fellow editors why you believe global templates are necessary. Follow the local project decision process to come to a discussion outcome as support or not. There is plenty of time for discussion. Please reach a conclusion before the end of April 2021.
Please translate the coordinating page on meta to languages you are proficient in. Gathering_support_from_local_projects_for_global_templates
Please add a line to this meta page with a link to a discussion page on your local project(s).
The goal is to have the Wikimedia Foundation include a program to develop infrastructure for global templates in their 2021/2022 Annual Plan. The Wikimedia Foundation will decide on the Annual Plan in May/June this year.
The aim is to have several dozen local project communities to show support, and little concerns, issues or objections. Of course, any project can continue to use their local templates.
When you have questions about this initiative you can reach me at ad huikeshoven.org or + 31 6 40293574, and also on Telegram and Signal. You can also raise questions on the talk page on meta. Maybe some people would like to discuss this initiative in a meeting. Please let me know whether you would like to join a Zoom meeting in February.
Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2022 submissionEdit
On behalf of the Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2022 programme committee, I am pleased to inform you that your submission "How to take better photos" has been accepted as a workshop. Considering that the conference will have language interpretation from English into Russian and vice versa, you have the choice between English and Russian as a language that you will use in your session. In case you have any additional requests or questions, do not hesitate to contact me or any other committee member.
