Élection communautaire au Conseil d'administration de Wikimédia Franceרעדאַקטירן

זייט אזוי גוט איבערזעצן דעם בלאַט

Ce message est déposé ici car Wikimédia France a identifié la langue de votre projet comme étant un des langues de France.
This message is posted here because Wikimedia France has identified the language of your project as being one of the languages ​​of France.

Bonjour à toutes et tous,

Le 23 février dernier l'association Wikimédia France s'est dotée de nouveaux statuts. Dorénavant, un siège du Conseil d'administration de Wikimédia France est réservé à une personne désignée par la communauté des contributeurs aux différents projets Wikimedia[1].

Wikimédia France est une association à but non lucratif, de type loi 1901, qui soutient et promeut les différents projets Wikimedia en France mais n'exerce aucun rôle éditorial ni aucun rôle d'hébergeur de ces projets. Elle est juridiquement indépendante des projets et de la Wikimedia Foundation.

Néanmoins, il est sûr que la notoriété de l'association est entièrement issue de celle des différents projets, ce qui détermine en grande partie sa capacité à rencontrer les acteurs institutionnels et associatifs et à attirer la générosité du public. D'autre part, les marques, les logos et un peu moins de la moitié des ressources de Wikimédia France[2] sont issues d'un accord avec la Wikimedia Foundation, organe central du mouvement wikimédien. En bref, l'essentiel de la capacité d'action de Wikimédia France est rendu possible grâce à votre travail. C'est pourquoi Wikimédia France a pensé qu'il est légitime qu'une personne désignée par la communauté des contributeurs puisse siéger à son Conseil d'administration. Une fois désignée, la personne sera formellement investie en novembre par un vote de l'Assemblée générale de l'association, seule instance souveraine en cette matière. En tant que membre du Conseil d'administration, la personne choisie pourra exercer les rôles de contrôle, de gestion et de conseil stratégique pour l'association[3].

Le dépôt des candidatures sera possible à partir du 1er septembre 2019 et le vote sera ouvert du 20 au 30 septembre 2019.

Toutes les informations utiles (calendrier détaillé, droit de vote, conditions d'éligibilité, etc.) sont à retrouver sur m:Wikimédia France/Gouvernance/Siège_communautaire. Fin août / début septembre, une session « posez toutes les questions que vous voulez » (ask me everything), sera organisée en ligne pour répondre aux diverses interrogations.

Enfin, Wikimédia France souhaite mettre en place une commission électorale recueillant et validant les candidatures et surveillant ce processus électoral. Si la fonction vous intéresse, vous pouvez vous signaler à election at wikimedia.fr

Update on the consultation about office actionsרעדאַקטירן

Hello all,

Last month, the Wikimedia Foundation's Trust & Safety team announced a future consultation about partial and/or temporary office actions. We want to let you know that the draft version of this consultation has now been posted on Meta.

This is a draft. It is not intended to be the consultation itself, which will be posted on Meta likely in early September. Please do not treat this draft as a consultation. Instead, we ask your assistance in forming the final language for the consultation.

For that end, we would like your input over the next couple of weeks about what questions the consultation should ask about partial and temporary Foundation office action bans and how it should be formatted. Please post it on the draft talk page. Our goal is to provide space for the community to discuss all the aspects of these office actions that need to be discussed, and we want to ensure with your feedback that the consultation is presented in the best way to encourage frank and constructive conversation.

Please visit the consultation draft on Meta-wiki and leave your comments on the draft’s talk page about what the consultation should look like and what questions it should ask.

Thank you for your input! -- The Trust & Safety team 08:03, 16 אויגוסט 2019 (UTC)

Request for translation helpרעדאַקטירן

Hello,
This week is a commemoration week of Holodomor, the famine in Ukraine in 1932-1933. I am currently looking for people who could be willing to translate into Yiddish articles about the famine (I noticed that Yiddish Wikipedia does not have even a brief article on this subject), as well as bout people who spread information about the famine in 1933, e.g. en:Alexander Wienerberger or en:Ewald Ammende? The latter one, an ethnic German, is also notable for defending rights of Jewish minorities in the pre-war Europe, which resulted in his conflicts with the Nazis.
P.S. I am not active on the Yiddish Wikipedia, but I created quite a lot of articles in the Russian, Ukrainian, English and German versions.
Thank you. --Dmitri Lytov (רעדן) 19:27, 29 נאוועמבער 2019 (UTC)

This interface is shown to you when you write on a discussion page and another person writes a discussion post in the same line and saves it before you do. With this additional editing conflict interface you can adjust the order of the comments and edit your comment. We are inviting everyone to have a look at the planned feature.

«Вики любит футбол»רעדאַקטירן

С 12 июня по 12 июля будет проходить вики-марафон «Вики любит футбол 2020». Именно в эти сроки должны были пройти два крупнейших континентальных футбольных турнира — Евро-2020 и Кубок Америки 2020. Однако из-за коронавируса оба турнира были перенесены на 2021 год. Объявляя этот конкурс, википедисты намерены выразить свою солидарность с футбольным сообществом, а также восполнить пробелы, связанные с футбольной тематикой — особенно в разделах на языках народов России. Марафон организован НП «Викимедиа РУ», Группой «Викимедийцы Башкортостана», Группой участников-википедистов Северного Кавказа, Группой «Викимедийцы, пишущие на эрзянском языке», Группой татароязычных участников сообщества Викимедиа. Мы также приглашаем участников Википедии на идиш принять участие в конкурсе. Одни из главных целей конкурса — расширение сотрудничества между разделами Википедии на языках России и обеспечение устойчивого развития проектов Викимедиа на территории Российской Федерации.

There are a lot of conversations happening about the future of our movement names. We hope that you are part of these discussions and that your community is represented.

Since 16 June, the Foundation Brand Team has been running a survey in 7 languages about 3 naming options. There are also community members sharing concerns about renaming in a Community Open Letter.

Our goal in this call for feedback is to hear from across the community, so we encourage you to participate in the survey, the open letter, or both. The survey will go through 7 July in all timezones. Input from the survey and discussions will be analyzed and published on Meta-Wiki.

Thanks for thinking about the future of the movement, --The Brand Project team, 19:42, 2 יולי 2020 (UTC)

Note: The survey is conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement.

Sorry about not being able to write in Yiddish. I hope someone can translate this! אני יודע לכתוב בעברית.

Content translation facilitates the creation of Wikipedia articles by translating content from other languages. It has been used already to create more than half a million articles. In addition, the tool provides mechanisms to encourage the creation of good quality content, preventing the publication of lightly edited machine translations. In general, our analysis shows that the translations produced are less likely to be deleted than the articles started from scratch.

Yiddish Wikipedia editors have used Content translation to create more than four hundred articles. Given the size of the editing community, we think that there is potential to use translation to create more articles, expand existing ones, and attract new editors that learn how to make productive edits. Translation can help the community to reduce the language gap with other languages and grow the number of editors in a sustainable way. In order to achieve this goal, we want to collaborate with you to make Content translation more visible in the Yiddish Wikipedia and support new ways to translate.

As a first step, during the next weeks we plan to enable Content translation by default on the Yiddish Wikipedia. That will make it easy for users to discover the tool through several entry points. However, users not interested in translation will still be able to disable it from their preferences.

Please feel free to share any comment in this conversation thread.

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globallyרעדאַקטירן

זייט אזוי גוט איבערזעצן דעם בלאַט

Hello everyone,

I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.

This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.

As far as I can see, װיקיפּעדיע currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.

I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.

Best regards,

Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultationsרעדאַקטירן

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2רעדאַקטירן

זייט אזוי גוט איבערזעצן דעם בלאַט

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.

Drafting Committee: Call for applicationsרעדאַקטירן

The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.

To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.

2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translatorsרעדאַקטירן

From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.

To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election has come to an endרעדאַקטירן

Thank you for participating in the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election! Voting closed August 31 at 23:59. The official data, including the four most voted candidates, will be announced as soon as the Elections Committee completes their review of the ballots. The official announcement of the new trustees appointed will happen later, once the selected candidates have been confirmed by the Board.

6,946 community members from 216 wiki projects have voted. This makes 10.2% global participation, 1.1% higher than in the last Board elections. In 2017, 5167 people from 202 wiki projects cast their vote. A full analysis is planned to be published in a few days when the confirmed results are announced. In the meantime, you can check the data produced during the election.

Diversity was an important goal with these elections. Messages about the Board election were translated into 61 languages. This outreach worked well. There were 70 communities with eligible voters voting in this election for the first time. With your help, next year’s Board of Trustees election will be even better.

חבר הנאמנים נערך לבקשת משוב בין ה־7 בינואר ל־10 בפברואר 2022 לגבי הבחירות הקרובות לחבר הנאמנים.

שאר הפרטים יוודעו בשבוע שלפני תחילת תקופת המשוב, אבל בינתיים ידועות שתי שאלות שתישאלנה במהלך בקשת המשוב:

  • מהי הדרך המיטבית להבטיח ייצוג הוגן של קהילות מתפתחות בקרב חבר הנאמנים?
  • איזו מידת מעורבות צריכים מועמדים לחבר הנאמנים לקיים במהלך הבחירות?

על אף שייתכן שתישאלנה שאלות נוספות, צוות האסטרטגיה מבקש לתת די זמן לקהילות ולארגונים לחשוב על השאלות שכבר ידועות ולהעלות רעיונות, עוד לפני שבקשת המשוב נפתחת. אנו מתנצלים על שלא כל השאלות מוכנות כבר בשלב זה. רשימת השאלות עשוייה לגדול בלא יותר מעוד שאלה או שתיים. השאיפה היא להימנע מלהכביד על הקהילה בבקשות רבות, וליידע מראש ולעודד משוב על השאלות החשובות הללו.

האם ברצונכם לארגן שיחה מקומית בקהילה שלכם במהלך תקופת המשוב הזו?

אם כן, צרו קשר עם צוות האסטרטגיה במטא־ויקי, או בערוץ הטלגרם הזה, או בדואל בכתובת msg wikimedia.org.

פנו אלינו בכל שאלה או בעיה. רוב צוות האסטרטגיה בחופשה עד ה־3 בינואר. אנא קבלו בהבנה עיכובים אפשריים במענה בתקופה הזו. אנו אף מבינים שגם מתנדבים רבים לא יהיו זמינים במהלך חגי דצמבר. אנו מתנצלים אם ההודעה מגיעה אליכם במהלך חופשתכם.

Updates on the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines Reviewרעדאַקטירן

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello everyone,

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees released a statement on the ratification process for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines.

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire movement. The UCoC and the Enforcement Guidelines were written by volunteer-staff drafting committees following community consultations.

The revised guidelines were published 24 January 2022 as a proposed way to apply the policy across the movement. There is a list of changes made to the guidelines after the enforcement draft guidelines review. Comments about the guidelines can be shared on the Enforcement Guidelines talk page on Meta-wiki.

To help to understand the guidelines and process, the Movement Strategy and Governance (MSG) team will be hosting Conversation Hours on 4 February 2022 at 15:00 UTC, 25 February 2022 at 12:00 UTC, and 4 March 2022 at 15:00 UTC. Join the conversation hours to speak with the UCoC project team and drafting committee members about the updated guidelines and voting process.

The timeline is available on Meta-wiki. The voting period is March 7 to 21. All eligible voters will have an opportunity to support or oppose the adoption of the Enforcement guidelines, and share why. See the voting information page for more details.

Many participants from across the movement have provided valuable input in these ongoing conversations. The UCoC and MSG teams want to thank the Drafting Committee and the community members for their contributions to this process.

Sincerely,

Movement Strategy and Governance

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello everyone,

A vote in SecurePoll from 7 to 21 March 2022 is scheduled as part of the ratification process for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement guidelines. Eligible voters are invited to answer a poll question and share comments. Read voter information and eligibility details. During the poll, voters will be asked if they support the enforcement of the Universal Code of Conduct based on the proposed guidelines.

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire movement. The revised enforcement guidelines were published 24 January 2022 as a proposed way to apply the policy across the movement. A Wikimedia Foundation Board statement calls for a ratification process where eligible voters will have an opportunity to support or oppose the adoption of the UCoC Enforcement guidelines in a vote. Wikimedians are invited to translate and share important information. For more information about the UCoC, please see the project page and frequently asked questions on Meta-wiki.

There are events scheduled to learn more and discuss:

  • A community panel recorded on 18 February 2022 shares perspectives from small- and medium-sized community participants.
  • The Movement Strategy and Governance (MSG) team is hosting Conversation Hours on 4 March 2022 at 15:00 UTC. Please sign-up to interact with the project team and the drafting committee about the updated enforcement guidelines and the ratification process. See the Conversation Hour summaries for notes from 4 February 2022 and 25 February 2022.

Hello!

The Movement Strategy and Governance team of the Wikimedia Foundation would like to invite you to the next event about "Regional and Thematic Hubs". The Wikimedia Movement is in the process of understanding what Regional and Thematic Hubs should be. Our workshop in November was a good start (read the report), but we're not finished yet.

Over the last weeks we conducted about 16 interviews with groups working on establishing a Hub in their context (see Hubs Dialogue). These interviews informed a report that will serve as a foundation for discussion on March 12. The report is planned to be published on March 9.

The event will take place on March 12, 13:00 to 16:00 UTC on Zoom. Interpretation will be provided in French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, and Portuguese. Registration is open, and will close on March 10. Anyone interested in the topic is invited to join us. More information on the event on Meta-wiki.

Revisions to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelinesרעדאַקטירן

Hello all,

We'd like to provide an update on the work on the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct. After the conclusion of the community vote on the guidelines in March, the Community Affairs committee (CAC) of the Board asked that several areas of the guidelines be reviewed for improvements before the Board does its final review. These areas were identified based on community discussions and comments provided during the vote. The CAC also requested review of the controversial Note in 3.1 of the UCoC itself.

Once more, a big thank you to all who voted, especially to all who left constructive feedback and comments! The project team is working with the Board to establish a timeline for this work, and will communicate this next month.

Members of the two prior UCoC Drafting Committees have generously offered their time to help shape improvements to the Guidelines. You can read more about them and their work here, as well as read summaries of their weekly meetings in 2022.

Wikimedians have provided many valuable comments together with the vote and in other conversations. Given the size and diversity of the Wikimedia community, there are even more voices out there who can give ideas on how to improve the enforcement guidelines and add even more valuable ideas to the process. To help the Revisions committee identify improvements, input on several questions for the committee’s review is requested. Visit the Meta-wiki pages (Enforcement Guidelines revision discussions, Policy text revision discussions) to get your ideas to the Committee - it is very important that viewpoints are heard from different communities before the Committee begins drafting revision proposals.

On behalf of the UCoC project team

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hi all,

Community members in the 2022 Board of Trustees election are invited to propose statements to use in the Election Compass.

An Election Compass is a tool to help voters select the candidates that best align with their beliefs and views. The community members will propose statements for the candidates to answer using a Lickert scale (agree/neutral/disagree). The candidates’ answers to the statements will be loaded into the Election Compass tool. Voters will use the tool by entering in their answer to the statements (agree/disagree/neutral). The results will show the candidates that best align with the voter’s beliefs and views.

Here is the timeline for the Election Compass
  • July 8 - 20: Community members propose statements for the Election Compass
  • July 21 - 22: Elections Committee reviews statements for clarity and removes off-topic statements
  • July 23 - August 1: Volunteers vote on the statements
  • August 2 - 4: Elections Committee selects the top 15 statements
  • August 5 - 12: candidates align themselves with the statements
  • August 15: The Election Compass opens for voters to use to help guide their voting decision

The Elections Committee will select the top 15 statements at the beginning of August. The Elections Committee will oversee the process, supported by the Movement Strategy and Governance team. MSG will check that the questions are clear, there are no duplicates, no typos, and so on.

Best,

Movement Strategy and Governance

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?רעדאַקטירן

 
The slides for our presentation at Wikimania 2022

Hello. I'm writing on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Web team. In two weeks, we would like to make the Vector 2022 skin the default on this wiki.

We have been working on it for the past three years. So far, it has been the default on more than 30 wikis, including sister projects, all accounting for more than 1 billion pageviews per month. On average 87% of active logged-in users of those wikis use Vector 2022.

It would become the default for all logged-out users, and also all logged-in users who currently use Vector legacy. Logged-in users can at any time switch to any other skins. No changes are expected for users of these skins.

About the skinרעדאַקטירן

[Why is a change necessary] The current default skin meets the needs of the readers and editors as these were 13 years ago. Since then, new users have begun using Wikimedia projects. The old Vector doesn't meet their needs.

[Objective] The objective for the new skin is to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. It draws inspiration from previous requests, the Community Wishlist Surveys, and gadgets and scripts. The work helped our code follow the standards and improve all other skins. We reduced PHP code in Wikimedia deployed skins by 75%. The project has also focused on making it easier to support gadgets and use APIs.

[Changes and test results] The skin introduces a series of changes that improve readability and usability. The new skin does not remove any functionality currently available on the Vector skin.

  • The sticky header makes it easier to find tools that editors use often. It decreases scrolling to the top of the page by 16%.
  • The new table of contents makes it easier to navigate to different sections. Readers and editors jumped to different sections of the page 50% more than with the old table of contents. It also looks a bit different on talk pages.
  • The new search bar is easier to find and makes it easier to find the correct search result from the list. This increased the amount of searches started by 30% on the wikis we tested on.
  • The skin does not negatively affect pageviews, edit rates, or account creation. There is evidence of increases in pageviews and account creation across partner communities.
