Hola, gràcies a la teva firma donant suport a la nostra associació. El passat dia 5 de juny Amical Wikimedia (Associació Amical Viquipèdia) va ser reconeguda pel Consell d'Administració de la Fundació Wikimedia com a Organització Temàtica. Pots veure el comunicat de l'associació en català aquí o el comunicat de la WMF en anglès aquí. Per a la nostra associació és una fita molt important, portàvem 5 anys demanant ésser un organisme oficial. Nosaltres continuarem la nostra tasca de promoció al carrer i a les institucions de la Viquipèdia i els seus projectes germans arreu dels territoris de parla catalana.
Hello, thanks for your signature giving support to our association. Last 5th of June Amical Wikimedia (Associació Amical Viquipèdia) was recognised by the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees as a Thematic Organization. You can read the news bulletin of our association in Catalan here or the WMF's bulletin in English here. For our association, this is a very important achievement: we have been pursuing the official recognition for the last 5 years. We are going to continue the task of promoting Wikipedia and its sister projects all around the Catalan-speaking regions.
Moltes gràcies, Thank you --Davidpar (talk) 15:20, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
Dear Xabier Armendaritz, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.
- Request for comment: Requests for comment/Superprotect rights
- An open letter about its implementation: Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer

Search for Global RenamersEdit
Hello, sorry in advance if I am bothering you. I just want to inform you about a possibilty here on meta. After the SUL finalization there is a search for additional Global_renamers (GR).
As I did with other users with knowledge of less "common" languages, I am contacting you because at the moment in Global_renamers#Users_with_global_rename_access and Stewards#List_of_current_stewards, if I correctly remember, noone is eu>3. Probably many Basque-speaking people can submit request in French or Spanish, but some seniors may have some problems, so there is a gap IMHO.
Now, you have a robust cross-wiki activity and you are a bureaucrat on euWiki, where you translated eu:Wikipedia:Lankide izena aldatzea. If you want to be more involved in the GR tasks in the future, please feel free to apply. We have accepted in the past months candidates with much lower cross-wiki activity or language skills than you, so you probably have good chances. Some of them were en-1 and you are en-4.
Please notice that I am not an expert user on meta nor a local bureaucrat or sysop, I just care about the "variety" of the meta environment and I though that it was useful to inform some users of the opportunity. If you know yourself some profile who might be interested, please let him/her know about this "opportunity".
If you think you won't be very active in the next months or you are simply not interested, no problem. In case you want to apply, I suggest you to translate also the page Global_rename_policy into Euskara.--Alexmar983 (talk) 21:49, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
Sunday August 23: Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network meetingEdit
The Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network (SWAN) is a proposed 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.
The idea is to follow up on the All-Affiliates Brand Meeting and other strategic and outreach topics of mutual concern to all affiliates, and you are all invited to RSVP here.--Pharos (talk) 15:29, 21 August 2020 (UTC)
