Queering Wikipedia 2021 User Group Working Days: May 14-16Edit

The Wikimedia LGBTQ+ User Group is holding online working days in May. If you’re an active Wikimedian, editing on LGBTQ+ issues or if you identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community, come help us set goals, develop our organisation and structures, consider how to respond to issues faced by Queer editors, and plan for the next 12 months.

We will be meeting online for 3 half-days, 14–16 May at 1400–1730 UTC. While our working language is English, we are looking to accommodate users who would prefer to participate in other languages, including translation facilities.

More information, and registration details, at QW2021.--Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group 15:48, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

The InternetArchiveBot team has come up with a new header for its documentation and user pages designed to make important links as easy to find as possible. We use this header on the bot's global user page, and we have it set up to show the labels in your interface language, meaning that the labels will appear in Russian on Russian Wikipedia (unless you override the interface language).

In order for this feature to work, we need translations of those labels. There are only six labels:

  • About the Bot
  • Report Problem
  • Contact Us
  • Documentation
  • Configure
  • Disable Bot

If you know how to say those things in another language, you can help! And your work will make it easier for non-English speakers to use InternetArchiveBot.

Thank you to everyone who translated "Template:InternetArchiveBot header". The template is now available in 64 languages (including variants)!

(We have since added one more link to the header – "Translate" – translations are appreciated!) This page I am requesting translations for is the "report problem" page for InternetArchiveBot, directing the user to different places depending on the kind of problem they are having. There are a total of 17 terms to translate, consisting of short phrases and sentences. This page is directly linked from the header on InternetArchiveBot's global user page, so your work will likely be seen.

Affiliations Committee (AffCom) Call for candidates - January 2022Edit

Translations are available.

The Affiliations Committee – the committee responsible for guiding volunteers in establishing Wikimedia chapters, thematic organizations, and user groups – is looking for new members!

The main role of the AffCom is to guide groups of volunteers that are interested in forming Wikimedia affiliates. We review applications from new groups, answer questions and provide advice about the different Wikimedia affiliation models and processes, review affiliate bylaws for compliance with requirements and best practices, and update the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees as well as advise them on issues connected to chapters, thematic organizations and Wikimedia user groups.

The committee consists of five to fifteen members, selected at least once every year, to serve two-year terms.

Being a part of the AffCom requires communication with volunteers all over the world, negotiating skills, cultural sensitivity, and the ability to understand legal texts. We look for a mix of different skill sets in our members.

Responsibilities
  • Availability of up to 5-8 hours per month
  • Participate in monthly one and two-hour voice/video meetings
  • Commitment to carry out assigned tasks in a given time.
  • Facilitate and support communications
  • Affiliate Support and growth
Required and Recommended Abilities, Skills, Knowledge for Affiliations Committee Members

Strong interpersonal relationship among members of the committee and also with the Wikimedia community members. Across all committee members, there are additional relevant skills as well as requirements which help to support the committee and its sustainability which include both required and relevant general skills

Required
  • Fluency in English
  • Availability of up to 5 hours per week, and the time to participate in a monthly one and two-hour voice/video meetings.
  • Willingness to use one's real name in committee activities (including contacts with current and potential affiliates) when appropriate.
  • Strong track record of effective collaboration
  • International orientation
Relevant for all members
  • Public Communications (English writing and speaking skills)
  • Skills in other languages are a major plus.
  • Understanding of the structure and work of affiliates and the Wikimedia Foundation.
  • Documentation practices
  • Interviewing experience
  • Experience with, or in, an active affiliate is a major plus.
  • Teamwork: Project and people management skills to coordinate and collaborate with different parties on a shared plan and see it through to completion.
  • Problem-Solving: Ability to evaluate various solutions, consider multiple interests and points of view, revisit unresolved issues, seek compromise and work and communicate across languages and cultures.

Given the expectations for maintaining the course in 2022 and preparing for potential 2022 transitions as part of the Movement Strategy implementation process, it is important that we are also clear about two different skill sets critical to committee support at this time. The first skillset is oriented to understanding affiliate dynamics and organizational development patterns to successfully process affiliate applications for recognition; the other is oriented to conflict prevention and intervention support for affiliates in conflict.

Relevant to Affiliate Recognitions
  • Administration & Attention to detail
  • Readiness to participate in political discussions on the role and future of affiliates, models of affiliation, and similar topics.
  • Awareness of the affiliates ecosystem and models and understanding of community building, organizational development, and group dynamics
Relevant to Conflict Prevention & Intervention
  • Communication skills for active listening, clear instruction and turn-taking.
  • Stress Management skills for maintaining patience and positivity
  • Emotional intelligence to maintain awareness of emotions of oneself and others to practice empathy, impartiality, and mutual respect.
  • Facilitation, negotiation, and mediation skills to guide diverse individuals and groups toward cooperation.
  • Ability to work within a team

Do you have relevant skills and interest to support movement affiliates?

We are looking for people who are excited by the challenge of empowering volunteers to get organized and form communities that further our mission around the world. In exchange, committee members will gain the experience of supporting their world-wide colleagues to develop their communities as well as personal development in guiding organizational development, facilitating affiliate partnerships, and professional communications.

Selection process

As a reflection of our commitment to openness, transparency, and bilateral engagement with the Wikimedia community, the 2022 member selection process will include a public review and comment period and a self-assessment survey for candidates to share their skills and their experience. This self-assessment information will help the committee to identify the skill sets relevant and supportive to our affiliate support processes. We invite you to apply for membership to the committee and join us in supporting the affiliates. The data shared in the self-assessment will only be made available to the committee and the relevant staff support. The nomination, candidate Q&A, and endorsements will still take place posted on Meta for public review at January 2022 page. Here the global community is welcome to provide comments and feedback about each candidate.

Once the nomination window closes 31 January 2022, the sitting members who are not candidates for re-election in this cycle will deliberate and then vote, taking into account all inputs from the meta page, self-assessment, advisors, Wikimedia Foundation staff and board liaisons, and committee member discussion.

A final decision will be made in late-February 2022, with new members to be notified for onboarding in February.

How to apply

If you are interested in joining the committee, please:

Step 1. Post your application on the nomination page by 31 January 2022. Your application must include the following information:

  1. Your full name and Wikimedia username
  2. A statement describing your relevant education, experience, abilities, skills, knowledge, availability, and motivation for joining the committee.

Step 2. Complete the self-assessment survey between January 1, 2021 and January 31, 2021.

  • The privacy statement that applies to the survey can be found here.
  • NOTE: The survey will take 15 mins. Please do not close your browser. If you need a break, you are advised to keep the browser open. In case of losing the link, please reach out to mkaur-ctr wikimedia.org
  • This survey must be completed before Steps 3 & 4, as it will provide more background as to the type of work and expectations of members of AffCom.

Step 3. Answers the following questions:

Affiliations Committee (AffCom) Call for advisors - January 2022Edit

Translations are available.

The Affiliations Committee – the committee responsible for guiding volunteers in establishing Wikimedia chapters, thematic organizations, and user groups – is looking for new members!

The Affiliations Committee – the committee responsible for guiding volunteers in establishing Wikimedia Chapters, Thematic Organizations, and User Groups – is looking for advisors!

The main role of the Affiliations Committee is to guide groups of volunteers that are interested in forming Wikimedia affiliates. We review applications from new groups, answer questions and provide advice about the different Wikimedia affiliation models and processes, review affiliate bylaws for compliance with requirements and best practices, and advise the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees on issues connected to chapters, thematic organizations and Wikimedia user groups.

We are looking for advisors who are excited by the challenge of empowering volunteers to get organized and form communities that further our mission around the world. In exchange, committee advisors selected will gain the experience of supporting their world-wide colleagues to develop their communities as well as personal development in guiding organizational development, facilitating affiliate partnerships, and professional communications.

AffCom advisors can engage with the committee in a variety of capacities:

Consultant

Individuals with extensive movement experience can be engaged as Consultants for specific cases or initiatives by AffCom.

Trainer

Individuals with specific expertise may be engaged for short-term projects for training AffCom or Affiliates. They might also lead the Capacity Building initiatives for AffCom or affiliates.

Observer

AffCom can request specific or all advisors to act as an observer in different cases to ensure neutrality & compliance with guidelines.

AffCom Support

Development of Policies: While advisors cannot create legally binding policies for the committee, they can help create policies that provide direction and support for the committee.

Planning and Implementing Community Relations: The advisors are long-term wikimedians & also include influential community leaders who can be effective at spreading the word about initiatives and services.

Supporting Subcommittees: The advisors can support subcommittees that have assigned tasks in specific areas.

Other Tasks: Advisors can be engaged to address a specific need. Such engagements are usually short-lived and are disbanded as soon as their specific goals are met.


Key skills

We look for a healthy mix of different skill sets in our advisors, including the following key skills and experience:

  1. Strong understanding of the structure and work of Wikimedia affiliates and the Wikimedia Foundation.
  2. Readiness to participate in political discussions on the role and future of affiliates, models of affiliation, and similar topics.
  3. Availability of up to 2 hours per week, and the time to participate in a monthly two-hour voice/video meeting
  4. International orientation and ability to work and communicate with other languages and cultures.
  5. Knowledge of different legal systems and experience in community building and organizing are a plus.
  6. Fluency in English is required; skills in other languages are a major plus.
  7. Experience with or in an active Wikimedia affiliate is a major plus.
  8. Strong track record of effective collaboration (such as evidenced skills at facilitation, mediation, negotiation, and so forth) is a major plus.
  9. Willingness to use one's real name in committee activities (including contacts with current and potential affiliates) when appropriate.
Selection process

As a reflection of our commitment to openness, transparency, and bilateral engagement with the Wikimedia community, the 2022 advisors selection process will include a public review and comment period. All applications must be posted on Meta between January 01 and January 31, 2022 at Affiliations Committee/Advisors/2022, and the community will be invited to provide comments and feedback about each candidate. At the end of the nomination period, the applications will be voted on by the members of the committee, taking into account comments put forward by the committee's members, advisors, Wikimedia Foundation staff and board liaisons, and the community. A final decision will be made in February 2022, with new advisors expected to begin later that month.

How to apply

If you are interested in advising the committee, please submit your candidacy on Affiliations Committee/Advisors/2022 between January 01 to January 31, 2022. Your application must include the following information:

  1. Your full name and Wikimedia username
  2. A statement describing your relevant experience, skills, and motivation for joining the committee as an advisor.
  3. The advisor role you would like to serve
  4. Answers to the following three questions:
    1. How do you think affiliates work best together to partner on effective projects and initiatives?
    2. What do you see as the role of affiliates in the Wikimedia movement in the next three years?
    3. What do you feel you will bring as an advisor to the committee that makes you a uniquely qualified candidate?

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the committee. We are happy to chat or have a phone call with anyone about our work if this helps them decide to apply. Please distribute this call among your networks, and do apply if you are interested!

SE2022 questionsEdit

Hello @ZI Jony, thank you for participating in SE2022 by asking questions. I would like to inform you that the Election Committee maintains a limit of 2 questions per asker (see election guidelines for details). It appears that you asked the candidates three questions in total. For that reason, I'd like to ask you to drop one of the three questions you posted. If you have any questions about the election policies, please feel free to let me know. On behalf of the Election Committee, Martin Urbanec (talk) 15:14, 15 January 2022 (UTC)

Martin Urbanec Sorry, I've missed that. Shall I remove one question or have to cut the text by <s>? Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 15:40, 15 January 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick reply. Since no one answered the question you hid yet, fully removing it (or commenting out, as you did) is perfectly fine. Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:24, 15 January 2022 (UTC)

আশা করছি ভালো আছেন। অনুবাদের জন্য চিহ্নিত করার সময় প্রতিবার অনুবাদকের বার্তা না পাঠাতে অনুরোধ করছি, এটা স্প্যামিংয়ের মতোই মনে হচ্ছে। তাছাড়া গুরুত্বপূর্ণ কোন কিছু না হলে সেগুলোর বিষয়ে বার্তা পাঠানোর প্রয়োজন আছে বলে মনে করি না। এক্ষেত্রে মেটার Babel-এ বার্তা রাখুন। ধন্যবাদ --MdsShakil (talk) 17:31, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

MdsShakil, আলহামদুলিল্লাহ আমি ভালো আছি, আশা করি আপনিও ভালো আছেন। আপনার বার্তার জন্য ধন্যবাদ। এই ধরনের বার্তা দিয়ে আমার নিজের আলাপ পাতা ভরে আছে, তাই আমি এর বিন্যাস পরিবর্তন করে শুধু ইমেইল করেছি। বার্তা দেয়ার প্রধান কারণ হচ্ছে, শিক্ষা বিষয়ক সংবাদ এই মাস থেকে অনুবাদ করার জন্য দেয়া হচ্ছে, যেহেতু এর আগে কখনোই অনুবাদ করা হয়নি তাই বার্তা দেয়া আবশ্যক হয়ে পরেছে। বিশেষ করে, শিরোনাম গুলো ২৪ তারিখের মধ্যে তালিকায় যুক্ত আলাপ পাতাগুলোয় পাঠাতে হবে। আমাদের অনেক গুলো পাতা অনুবাদ করতে হবে, কিন্তু আমরা শুধু দুটি পাতার জন্য অনুবাদ বিজ্ঞপ্তি দেয়ার পরিকল্পনা করেছি। ধন্যবাদ!

Mass messages sent to wrong pageEdit

Wikibooks:sv:User:MediaWiki message delivery delivered your messages to the wrong page, in Wikibooks:sv:Special:Diff/51293/51327. As discussed at the project, we cannot afford mass messages flooding our village pump: activity is low and the project-specific discussion will be drowned. The messages are not particularly useful either, as most contributors read them at projects where they are more active.

We have created a separate page for these messages, as can be seen at Distribution list/Global message delivery. Is there some other page where this preference should be stated?

Now that I read the diff, I see that you point to a private list of village pumps: User:ZI_Jony/MassMessage/Awareness of Education Newsletter/List of Village Pumps (with no documentation on its function). Why aren't you using the above list? Isn't there enough instructions given for those who want to use the mass delivery function?

(It would also be useful to have your contact information as a normal signature, not in a small-print footer. The "for more information" link was broken: "spatnaikMall:@wikimedia.org". Why an e-mail address instead of a Wikimedia user page? User:SPatnaik (WMF)?)

LPfi (talk) 14:35, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Honestly, I had checked village pump list on subpage of Global message delivery. Actually I was forget about the list you provided! Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 08:38, 26 January 2022 (UTC)
OK, that's fine. I'd hope the mass messenger should make it easy to use the right lists. –LPfi (talk) 18:02, 30 January 2022 (UTC)

Notes about preparing a page for translationEdit

Hello ZI Jony,

On this month Education newsletter, I have spent some time to improve internationalization of the pages, but you have reverted most of my work through “clean up”s. So we don’t work in opposite directions, I would like to point you some recommendation for preparing a page for translation:

  • Headings should be separated units, so they should be followed by an empty new line.
  • Tvar names must be unique inside each unit, but we can reuse the name several times in the same page, as soon as they are in different units.
  • Big units should be split into smaller ones; so for big lists we should isolate each item inside its own translation unit.

Note these are not technicals requirements, but these allows to make translation more comfortable.

Regards, -- Pols12 (talk) 22:29, 27 February 2022 (UTC)

Second Pywikibot workshop on Friday, March 25th, 16:00 UTCEdit

RevertEdit

Hi, can you please tell me why you think it doesn't make sense to you to actually indicate who the co-contacts of the group are, for the sake of transparency. To date, it could only be found in the reports but readers of the page might be interested whom to contact with their questions best if they cannot be asked on the talk page. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 09:38, 16 April 2022 (UTC)
