Convidar editors anònims a unir-se a la comunitat Viquipèdia

A les Viquipèdies anglesa, alemanya, francesa i italiana, l'equip del Creixement de la Fundació ha portat a terme dos experiments per a posar a prova els canvis en l'interfície dels usuaris per tal d'animar editors anònims a crear-se un compte i unir-se a al comunitat d'usuaris registrats. A la primera prova, es mostrava una recomanació per a crear-se un compte quan l'usuari clicava "Edita", i a la segona prova, la invitació es desplegava després que l'usuari desés l'edició. Les dades preliminars suggerien un efecte positiu en els nous registres.

Overview over the FDC proposals from round 2 (presentation slides)

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) recommendations announced

In May, the nine-member Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) met for its face-to-face deliberations and published its recommendations to the WMF Board of Trustees on proposals from four organizations (three chapters and the Foundation) on how to spend Wikimedia donation money. The Board will make its decision on these recommendations by 1 July. The Advisory Group to the FDC also met in Frankfurt for their final meeting, to provide the Executive Director of the WMF with a recommendation on whether or not the FDC process (begun in 2012) should continue, and if so, what modifications should be made. They unanimously agreed to recommend to continue the process.

Hackathon anual de la Wikimedia a Zuric, Suïssa

From May 9-11, more than 150 developers, engineers, sysadmins, and technology enthusiasts gathered in Zürich for the annual European Wikimedia hackathon, organized by Wikimedia CH, the local Wikimedia chapter. Among many other topics of interest, participants focused on maps and geographical data, Flow (the new discussion system intended as replacement for wiki talk pages), and Wikidata.

"El Joc de la Wikidata": Una nova i divertida manera de millorar la Wikidata

On May 20, Magnus Manske, a longtime Wikimedian and volunteers software developer, announced "Wikidata – The Game", a set of simple games, each asking the user to make a certain decision about Wikidata - for example, deciding whether two items describe the same topic, or whether an item describes a person or not. After two weeks, "643 players [had] made an astonishing 352,710 decisions through the game, many of which result in improving Wikidata directly".

Wiki Loves Earth s'internacionalitza

Wiki Loves Earth is an international photography competition with the subject of natural heritage. Started in 2013 for the Ukraine by the local chapter, this year it extended to 14 countries, and attracted tens of thousands of submissions. Similar to Wiki Loves Monuments, juries will first determine national winners for each country, from which the global winners will be selected.
