    We currently do not have a local bot policy, and we follow the English Wikipedia policy wholesale for now due to the size of this Wikipedia. However, if you see it fit to either propose or guide the community in formulating such a policy, go right ahead. --Sky Harbor (usapan) 03:12, 7 Pebrero 2009 (UTC)Reply[sumagot]

    Foundation Images Policy[baguhin ang source]

    Hi everyone,
    I am Yosri from Malay Wikipedia. Recently I was informed by certain parties that MS Wiki need to delete any images tagged as Non-Commercial under Foundation Licensing policy. After I have done some studies, I realised that Wikipedia Foundations is moving towards allowing commercialises all images, as such they are acting on behalf of commercial company to require all images loaded with tagging Non-Commercial in all Wiki Project to be removed, including those loaded in local Wiki. You are only allowed to licenses your images under "free content", which specifically allows commercial reuse, example GDLF 1.2. Certain images is exempted under a very narrow EDP ("exemption doctrine policy") definition. If you all already aware about this, please ignore this comment. Otherwise, for more details please visit http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Village_pump#Wikimedia_projects_still_using_non-commercial-only_images.3F Yosri 05:23, 2 Marso 2011 (UTC)Reply[sumagot]

    Hi Yosri. The Tagalog Wikipedia is aware of the EDP and we have made moves towards implementing an EDP for the Tagalog Wikipedia, with very limited success. For some reason, the community simply isn't interested in implementing such a policy, especially since fair use is liberally applied in the Philippines. We have a proposed EDP at WP:PNDM, and I will inform the community about this. At any rate, we hope to get our EDP passed soon, if the community will be interested to discuss it. --Sky Harbor (usapan) 09:19, 9 Marso 2011 (UTC)Reply[sumagot]

    Fundraiser 2011 translation[baguhin ang source]

    Hi! I am Jon Harald Søby, and I work for the Wikimedia Foundation during the 2011 fundraiser. I am looking for people who can help coordinating the translations into Tagalog for this year's fundraiser. The coordinator task is to help find translators and quality checkers, and make sure the translations are done in time.

    language translation request[baguhin ang source]

    The Wikimedia Foundation is preparing to launch a survey that it hopes will be helpful in discussing the future of how projects are funded on Wikipedia and sister sites. (More information about this can be read at meta:Fundraising and Funds Dissemination/Resource list and meta:Fundraising and Funds Dissemination/Recommendations, but you don't need to read it to help out here. :)) We would like input from as many people as possible, but the survey translations are not yet completed in many languages, including yours. The English version of the survey is at meta:Survey of how money should be spent/Questions/en. The Tagalog version, currently 53% complete, is at meta:Survey of how money should be spent/Questions/tl. If you can help, you would be very welcome!

    Translations are done using the "translation tool". If you go to this special page, all you have to do is select your language from the pull-down menu, alphabetical by language code, and click "fetch". It will bring up a table. You can easily see what has been translated and what has not, because untranslated sections are green. Click on the blue text in the left column next to content that has not been translated to open up an editing box. Above the box, the English version is shown, and you can simply enter in your language translation beneath it.

    The survey is pretty short, so I hope we can get it completed in time to send it to Tagalog-speaking editors in their own language. Thanks for any help you can offer! --Mdennis (WMF) (talk) 17:08, 5 Marso 2012 (UTC)Reply[sumagot]

    Hi. I can see that this project has old JavaScript that needs to be updated. I would happily make the required updates myself, but I would have to – at least temporarily – become an admin here to do that (because the relevant pages are in the MediaWiki namespace). I have already made these updates on a number of other projects, so it would be very easy for me to do this. If no one does anything, some JavaScript-related tools will break later this year.

    User:บุญพฤทธิ์ ทวนทัย is a contributor based at the Thai Wikipedia who has created machine translations of articles and spammed them over a wide range of Wikipedia languages, including here. While the subjects of the articles he has created are (mostly) notable, the mistake of creating articles in languages he does not understand has led to extremely bad quality, probably at the level of unintelligibility. Unless local editors are willing to start a clean-up effort, I suggest that his contributions be deleted. Someone who knows the language can later write proper articles about the subjects. --Paul 012 (makipag-usap) 09:45, 11 Nobyembre 2020 (UTC)Reply[sumagot]

    Wikipedia PH Month Project[baguhin ang source]

    WIKIPEDIA PH Month.png
    Major Philippine ethnolinguistic groups

    Hello Everyone,

    Wikipedia Philippine Month or simply Wikipedia PH Month is a monthly editing activity inspired by Wikipedia Asian Month. It aims to bridge knowledge gaps on Philippine content in Philippine language editions of Wikipedia and beyond. The participating community is not limited to the Philippines and is open to all Wikipedia editions! This activity also aims to encourage collaboration among Filipino contributors within the archipelago and in the diaspora, and create linkages among Filipino and non-Filipino contributors who support the main objective.

    How to Participate in the Activity[baguhin ang source]

    As an Editor

    • Find the language edition of Wikipedia you would like to build on.
    • Register an account if you have not done so.
    • Choose articles about the Topic of the Month, but NOT from YOUR NATIVE LOCALITY, and start creating or improving articles.
    • Write in the summary box the hashtag #WikiPHmonth before saving your work.

    As an Organizer

    • Set up and run the contest on a local level within your language community. (e.g. bcl:Wikipedia:Wikipedia Philippine Month 2021)
    • If your local Wikipedia is already participating, ask if you can help judge articles if you are interested.
    • Engage local editors and aim for maximum participation.
    • Organize online and offline events for contest promotion and increase in participation.
    • If you have expertise or skills in public relations, then you can help us get media coverage.

    Topics[baguhin ang source]

    Traditional homelands of the indigenous peoples of the Philippines

    Each participating local Wikipedia community runs a monthly online edit-a-thon, which promotes the creation or improvement of the Wikipedia content about a particular group or groups of people in the Philippines and the region they represent.

    • JANUARY - The Visayans (Region VI, Region VII, Region VIII, Romblon) are a metaethnicity race native to the whole Visayas, to the southernmost islands of Luzon (MIMAROPA Region and Masbate) and the northern and eastern coastal parts of Mindanao. They are speakers of one or more Visayan languages, the most widely spoken being Cebuano, Hiligaynon and Waray-Waray. They comprise the largest ethnic group in the nation.
    • February - Wiki Loves Love; Chinese New Year - Filipino-Chinese heritage
    • March - WikiGap; Women's Month - Filipina
    • APRIL - The Tagalogs (NCR, Region IV-A, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Marinduque) are the most widespread ethnic group in the Philippines. They predominate the entirety of the Manila and mainland southern Luzon regions, with a plurality in Central Luzon (mainly in its southeastern portion, as well as parts of Zambales and Bataan provinces except for Pampanga and Tarlac) and coastal parts of Mindoro. The Tagalog language was chosen as an official language of the Philippines in 1935. Today, Filipino, a de facto version of Tagalog, is taught throughout the archipelago.
    • MAY - Heritage Month - Highland Ethnolinguistic Nations (Cordilleras), Mangyan (in central Mindoro island), Suludnon (in central Panay island, and Negritos (in remote areas throughout Luzon, Panay, Negros islands, and Mindanao). The Igorots/Cordillerans live in the highlands of Luzon. They are primarily located in the Cordillera Administrative Region, Caraballo Mountains, and Sierra Madre. Mangyan is the generic name for the eight indigenous groups found on the island of Mindoro, southwest of the island of Luzon in the Philippines, each with its own tribal name, language, and customs. They occupy nearly the whole of the interior of the island of Mindoro. The Negrito are several Australo-Melanesian groups who inhabit isolated parts of Southeast Asia. They all live in remote areas throughout the islands in the Philippines. The Suludnon, also known as the Tumandok, Sulod, Panay-Bukidnon, or Panayanon Sulud, are an indigenous Visayan group of people who reside in the Capiz-Lambunao mountainous area and the Antique-Iloilo mountain area of central Panay in the Visayan islands of the Philippines.
    • June - Filipino-Spanish Friendship Day - Filipino-Spanish heritage
    • JULY - The Ilocanos and minorities in Lowland Ethnolinguistic Nations in Cagayan Valley Region (Region I, Region II) are predominantly Christian group who reside within the lowlands and coastal areas of northwestern Luzon. Other Ilocanos are also found in Cordillera Administrative Region and Cagayan Valley. The Ivatan (also spelled as Ibatan) are the predominant ethnolinguistic group in the Batanes islands of the Philippines. They have close cultural links with the Taiwanese aborigines, especially the Yami/Tao people of Orchid Island under jurisdiction of Taiwan. The Ibanags are a predominantly Christian lowland ethnic group numbering around half a million people and who primarily inhabit the provinces of Cagayan and Isabela in the Cagayan Valley of northern Luzon. The Itawes/Itawis/Itawit are among the earliest inhabitants of the Cagayan Valley in northern Luzon. The Gaddang number about 25,000. They are known to have inhabited the upper Cagayan Valley and the Magat valley below Aritao in Nueva Vizcaya and in Isabela since before the Spanish arrived.
    • AUGUST - Indigenous Month - Highland Ethnolinguistic Nations (Tribal Palaweño, and Lumad) and Lowland Ethnolinguistic Nations (Bangsamoro). The peoples and tribes of Palawan are a diverse group of both indigenous tribes and lowland groups that historically migrated to the island of Palawan and its outlying islands. The Lumad are the un-Islamized and un-Christianized indigenous Austronesian peoples of Mindanao. They include several ethnolinguistic nations such as the Manobo, the Tasaday, the Mamanwa, the Mandaya, the B'laan, the T'boli, and the Kalagan. They primarily inhabit the eastern parts of Mindanao such as the Caraga, and Davao Regions. The collective term Moro or Bangsamoro people refers to the, at least 13, islamicized ethnolinguistic groups of Mindanao, Sulu and Palawan. The Muslim Moros originally had a few independent states such as the Maguindanao Sultanate, the Lanao Sultanates, and the Sulu Sultanate. The Sultanate of Sulu once exercised sovereignty over the present day provinces of Basilan, Palawan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, the eastern part of the Malaysian state of Sabah (formerly North Borneo) and North Kalimantan in Indonesia.
    • SEPTEMBER - The Bikolanos and Masbateños (Region V) are a predominantly Roman Catholic ethnic group that originates from the Bicol Region in Southern Luzon. They are the fifth-largest ethnolinguistic group in the Philippines. Masbateños live in Masbate province of the Philippines. Masbateños may be considered Visayans by language but are Bicolanos by region.
    • OCTOBER - The Pangasinan and Bolinaos (Pangasinan) are the eighth-largest ethnolinguistic group in the Philippines. They predominate in the northwestern portion of Central Luzon (entire Pangasinan, northern Tarlac, northwestern Nueva Ecija and northern Zambales), as well as southwestern parts of La Union and Benguet. The Bolinao people live in Bolinao and Anda, Pangasinan. They speak the Bolinao language or Binubolinao, which is the second most widely spoken Sambalic language in Pangasinan (after Sambal).
    • November - Wikipedia Asian Month - Asian Heritage
    • DECEMBER - The Kapampangans and Sambals (Pampanga, Zambales, Tarlac) are the seventh-largest ethnic group in the Philippines. They primarily use the Kapampangan language, which is spoken by more than 1.4 million individuals. The Sambals are the inhabitants of the province of Zambales, including the independent city of Olongapo. They are also found in the municipalities of Bolinao and Anda in northwestern Pangasinan. Sambals currently make up a large proportion of the population in the Zambales municipalities of north of Iba, the provincial capital. Their language, Sambal, is related to Kapampangan.

    We are reaching out to you today regarding the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election. This election was due to open on August 4th. Due to some technical issues with SecurePoll, the election must be delayed by two weeks. This means we plan to launch the election on August 18th, which is the day after Wikimania concludes.

    Closing the comment period for the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Draft Guidelines[baguhin ang source]

    Thank you for your continued comments and ideas on the Universal Code of Conduct enforcement guidelines. Your responses have helped to build a stronger Universal Code of Conduct.

    If you have not already provided your comments, now is the time as the drafting committee has been meeting to update the enforcement guidelines. The drafting committee wants to consider all comments as they make their updates. Please submit any comments by the end of November. The Committee hopes to finish its revisions before the end of the year, and the revised guidelines will be published as soon as they have been completed.

    The next steps for the Universal Code of Conduct include conversations about ratification of the enforcement guidelines. There will be a conversation about ratification on November 29.

    The Wikimedia Foundation will make recommendations to the Board of Trustees about the ratification of the guidelines in December. The recommendations will inform the next steps in the Universal Code of Conduct process.

    Upcoming Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections[baguhin ang source]

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

    The Board of Trustees is preparing a call for feedback about the upcoming Board Elections, from January 7 - February 10, 2022.

    While details will be finalized the week before the call, we have confirmed at least two questions that will be asked during this call for feedback:

    • What is the best way to ensure fair representation of emerging communities among the Board?
    • What involvement should candidates have during the election?

    While additional questions may be added, the Movement Strategy and Governance team wants to provide time for community members and affiliates to consider and prepare ideas on the confirmed questions before the call opens. We apologize for not having a complete list of questions at this time. The list of questions should only grow by one or two questions. The intention is to not overwhelm the community with requests, but provide notice and welcome feedback on these important questions.

    Do you want to help organize local conversation during this Call?

    Contact the Movement Strategy and Governance team on Meta, on Telegram, or via email at msg(_AT_)wikimedia.org.

    Reach out if you have any questions or concerns. The Movement Strategy and Governance team will be minimally staffed until January 3. Please excuse any delayed response during this time. We also recognize some community members and affiliates are offline during the December holidays. We apologize if our message has reached you while you are on holiday.

    Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections is now open[baguhin ang source]

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

    The Call for Feedback: Board of Trustees elections is now open and will close on 7 February 2022.

    With this Call for Feedback, the Movement Strategy and Governance team is taking a different approach. This approach incorporates community feedback from 2021. Instead of leading with proposals, the Call is framed around key questions from the Board of Trustees. The key questions came from the feedback about the 2021 Board of Trustees election. The intention is to inspire collective conversation and collaborative proposal development about these key questions.

    There are two confirmed questions that will be asked during this Call for Feedback:

    1. What is the best way to ensure more diverse representation among elected candidates? The Board of Trustees noted the importance of selecting candidates who represent the full diversity of the Wikimedia movement. The current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Europe.
    2. What are the expectations for the candidates during the election? Board candidates have traditionally completed applications and answered community questions. How can an election provide appropriate insight into candidates while also appreciating candidates’ status as volunteers?

    There is one additional question that may be presented during the Call about selection processes. This question is still under discussion, but the Board wanted to give insight into the confirmed questions as soon as possible. Hopefully if an additional question is going to be asked, it will be ready during the first week of the Call for Feedback.

    Join the conversation.

    Best,

    Additional question to the Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections[baguhin ang source]

    Dear ESEAP project communities,

    I am reaching out to you today about an additional question to the Call for Feedback about Board of Trustees elections that I posted above. The Board has approved an additional question which we seek feedback to:

    How should affiliates participate in the elections? Affiliates are an important part of the Wikimedia movement. Two seats of the Board of Trustees due to be filled this year were filled in 2019 through the Affiliate-selected Board seats process. A change in the Bylaws removed the distinction between community and affiliate seats. This leaves the important question: How should affiliates be involved in the selection of new seats?

    The Board of Trustees is seeking feedback about this last question especially, although not solely, from the affiliate community. Everyone is invited to share proposals and join the conversation in the Call for Feedback channels. In addition to collecting online feedback, the Movement Strategy and Governance team will organize several video calls with affiliate members to collect feedback. These calls will be at different times and include Trustees.

    On behalf of the Movement Strategy and Governance team,

    Updates on the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines Review[baguhin ang source]

    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.

    Enabling Section Translation: a new mobile translation experience[baguhin ang source]

    Hello Tagalog Wikipedians!

    Apologies as this message is not in Tagalog language, Please help translate to your language.

    The WMF Language team is pleased to let you know that we will like to enable the Section translation tool in Tagalog Wikipedia. For this, our team will love you to read about the tool and test it so you can:

    • Give us your feedback
    • Ask us questions
    • Tell us how to improve it.

    Below is background information about Section translation, why we have chosen your community, and how to test it.

    Background information

    Content Translation has been a successful tool for editors to create content in their language. More than one million articles have been created across all languages since the tool was released in 2015. The Wikimedia Foundation Language team has improved the translation experience further with the Section Translation. The WMF Language team enabled the early version of the tool in February in Bengali Wikipedia. Through their feedback, the tool was improved and ready for your community to test and help us with feedback to make it better.

    Section Translation extends the capabilities of Content Translation to support mobile devices. On mobile, the tool will:

    • Guide you to translate one section at a time in order to expand existing articles or create new ones.
    • Make it easy to transfer knowledge across languages anytime from your mobile device.

    Tagalog Wikipedia seems an ideal candidate to enjoy this new tool since data shows significant mobile editing activity.

    We plan to enable the tool on Tagalog Wikipedia in the coming weeks if there are no objections from your community. After it is enabled, we’ll monitor the content created with the tool and process all the feedback. In any case, feel free to raise any concerns or questions you may already have in any of the following formats:

    Try the tool

    Before the enablement, you can try the current implementation of the tool in our testing instance. Once it is enabled on Tagalog Wikipedia, you’ll have access to https://tl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ContentTranslation with your mobile device. You can select an article to translate, and machine translation will be provided as a starting point for editors to improve.

    Provide feedback

    Please provide feedback about Section translation in any of the formats you are most comfortable with. We want to hear about your impressions on:

    • The tool
    • What you think about our plans to enable it
    • Your ideas for improving the tool.

    Thanks, and we look forward to your feedback and questions.

    Section Translation tool enabled in Tagalog Wikipedia[baguhin ang source]

    Hello Friends!

    The Language team is pleased to let you know that the Section Translation tool is now enabled in Tagalog Wikipedia. It means you can translate real content one section at a time using your mobile devices with ease.

    Now you can also start translating an article on your mobile device right when you notice it is missing in Tagalog. From a Wikipedia article in any language, switch languages and search for Tagalog. If the article does not exist, an option to translate it will appear, as shown in the image below.

    Image of the entry point

    We have enabled this tool in your Wikipedia based on your interest and feedback about the tool. This tool will be useful for your community since data shows significant mobile device activity in Tagalog Wikipedia.

    Content created with the tool will be marked with the “sectiontranslation” tag for the community to review. We’ll monitor the content created, but we are very interested in hearing about your experience using the tool and reviewing the content created with it.

    So, enjoy the tool and provide feedback on improving it.

    Thank you!

    Next steps: Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) and UCoC Enforcement Guidelines[baguhin ang source]

    The Community Affairs Committee of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees would like to thank everyone who participated in the recently concluded community vote on the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC).

    The volunteer scrutinizing group has completed the review of the accuracy of the vote and has reported the total number of votes received as 2,283. Out of the 2,283 votes received, a total of 1,338 (58.6%) community members voted for the enforcement guidelines, and a total of 945 (41.4%) community members voted against it. In addition, 658 participants left comments with 77% of the comments written in English.

    We recognize and appreciate the passion and commitment that community members have demonstrated in creating a safe and welcoming culture that stops hostile and toxic behavior, supports people targeted by such behavior, and encourages good faith people to be productive on the Wikimedia projects.

    Even at this incomplete stage, this is evident in the comments received. While the Enforcement Guidelines did reach a threshold of support necessary for the Board to review, we encouraged voters, regardless of which way they were voting, to provide feedback on the elements of the enforcement guidelines that they felt needed to be changed or fixed, as well as why, in case it seemed advisable to launch a further round of edits that would address community concerns.

    Foundation staff who have been reviewing comments have advised us of some of the emerging themes, and as a result we have decided as Community Affairs Committee to ask the Foundation to reconvene the drafting committee and to undertake another community engagement to refine the enforcement guidelines based on the community feedback received from the recently concluded vote.

    For clarity, this feedback has been clustered into 4 sections as follows:

    1. To identify the type, purpose, and applicability of the training;
    2. To simplify the language for easier translation and comprehension by non-experts;
    3. To explore the concept of affirmation, including its pros and cons;
    4. To review the conflicting roles of privacy/victim protection and right to be heard.

    Other issues may emerge during conversations, and particularly as the draft Enforcement Guidelines evolve, but we see these as the primary areas of concern for voters and are asking staff to facilitate review of these issues. After further engagement, the Foundation should re-run the community vote to evaluate the revamped Enforcement Outline to see if the new document is then ready for its official ratification.

    Further, we are aware of the concerns with the note 3.1 in the Universal Code of Conduct Policy. We are directing the Foundation to facilitate a review of this language to ensure that the Policy meets its intended purposes of supporting a safe and inclusive community, without waiting for the planned review of the entire Policy at the end of year.

    Again, we thank all who participated, thinking about these critical and difficult challenges and contributing to better approaches across the movement to working together well.

    Best,

    Rosie

    Call for volunteers: 2022 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election[baguhin ang source]

    <languages/> The Movement Strategy and Governance team is looking for community members to serve as election volunteers in the upcoming Board of Trustees election.

    The idea of the Election Volunteer Program came up during the 2021 Wikimedia Board of Trustees Election. This program turned out to be successful. With the help of Election Volunteers we were able to increase outreach and participation in the election by 1,753 voters over 2017. Overall turnout was 10.13%, 1.1 percentage points more, and 214 wikis were represented in the election.

    But a total of 74 wikis that did not participate in 2017 produced voters in the 2021 election. Can you help change the participation?

    Election volunteers will help in the following areas:

    • Translate short messages and announce the ongoing election process in community channels
    • Optional: Monitor community channels for community comments and questions

    Volunteers should:

    • Maintain the friendly space policy during conversations and events
    • Present the guidelines and voting information to the community in a neutral manner

    Do you want to be an election volunteer and ensure your community is represented in the vote? Sign up here to receive updates. You can use the talk page for questions about translation.

    Vote for Election Compass Statements[baguhin ang source]

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

    Hi all,

    Volunteers in the 2022 Board of Trustees election are invited to vote for statements to use in the Election Compass. You can vote for the statements you would like to see included in the Election Compass on Meta-wiki.

    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: Volunteers 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

    Delay of the 2022 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election[baguhin ang source]

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

    Hi all,

    I am reaching out to you today with an update about the timing of the voting for the Board of Trustees election.

    As many of you are already aware, this year we are offering an Election Compass to help voters identify the alignment of candidates on some key topics. Several candidates requested an extension of the character limitation on their responses expanding on their positions, and the Elections Committee felt their reasoning was consistent with the goals of a fair and equitable election process.

    To ensure that the longer statements can be translated in time for the election, the Elections Committee and Board Selection Task Force decided to delay the opening of the Board of Trustees election by one week - a time proposed as ideal by staff working to support the election.

    Although it is not expected that everyone will want to use the Election Compass to inform their voting decision, the Elections Committee felt it was more appropriate to open the voting period with essential translations for community members across languages to use if they wish to make this important decision.

    The voting will open on August 23 at 00:00 UTC and close on September 6 at 23:59 UTC.

    Best regards,

    Matanya, on behalf of the Elections Committee

    Revised Enforcement Draft Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct[baguhin ang source]

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

    Hello everyone,

    The Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines Revisions committee is requesting comments regarding the Revised Enforcement Draft Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC). This review period will be open from 8 September 2022 until 8 October 2022.

    The Committee collaborated to revise these draft guidelines based on input gathered from the community discussion period from May through July, as well as the community vote that concluded in March 2022. The revisions are focused on the following four areas:

    1. To identify the type, purpose, and applicability of the UCoC training;
    2. To simplify the language for more accessible translation and comprehension by non-experts;
    3. To explore the concept of affirmation, including its pros and cons;
    4. To review the balancing of the privacy of the accuser and the accused

    The Committee requests comments and suggestions about these revisions by 8 October 2022. From there, the Revisions Committee anticipates further revising the guidelines based on community input.

    Find the Revised Guidelines on Meta, and a comparison page in some languages.

    Everyone may share comments in a number of places. Facilitators welcome comments in any language on the Revised Enforcement Guidelines talk page. Comments can also be shared on talk pages of translations, at local discussions, or during conversation hours. There are a series of conversation hours planned about the Revised Enforcement Guidelines; please see Meta for the times and details.

    The facilitation team supporting this review period hopes to reach a large number of communities. If you do not see a conversation happening in your community, please organize a discussion. Facilitators can assist you in setting up the conversations. Discussions will be summarized and presented to the drafting committee every two weeks. The summaries will be published here.

    Invitation to attend “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter” Sessions[baguhin ang source]

    Hello all,

    During the 2022 Wikimedia Summit, the Movement Charter Drafting Committee (MCDC) presented the first outline of the Movement Charter, giving a glimpse on the direction of its future work, and the Charter itself. The MCDC then integrated the initial feedback collected during the Summit. Before proceeding with writing the Charter for the whole Movement, the MCDC wants to interact with community members and gather feedback on the drafts of the three sections: Preamble, Values & Principles, and Roles & Responsibilities (intentions statement). The Movement Charter drafts will be available on the Meta page here on November 14, 2022. Community wide consultation period on MC will take place from November 20 to December 18, 2022. Learn more about it here.

    With the goal of ensuring that people are well informed to fully participate in the conversations and are empowered to contribute their perspective on the Movement Charter, three “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter" sessions have been scheduled in different time zones. Everyone in the Wikimedia Movement is invited to attend these conversations. The aim is to learn about Movement Charter - its goal, purpose, why it matters, and how it impacts your community. MCDC members will attend these sessions to answer your questions and hear community feedback.

    The “Ask Me Anything” sessions accommodate communities from different time zones. Only the presentation of the session is recorded and shared afterwards, no recording of conversations. Below is the list of planned events:

    • Asia/Pacific: November 4, 2022 at 09:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Chinese and Japanese.
    • Europe/MENA/Sub Saharan Africa: November 12, 2022 at 15:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Arabic, French and Russian.
    • Latin America/North America/ Western Europe: November 12, 2022 at 15:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Spanish and Portuguese.

    On the Meta page you will find more details; Zoom links will be shared 48 hours ahead of the call.

    Call for Movement Charter Ambassadors

    Individuals or groups from all communities who wish to help include and start conversations in their communities on the Movement Charter are encouraged to become Movement Charter Ambassadors (MC Ambassadors). MC Ambassadors will carry out their own activities and get financial support for enabling conversations in their own languages. Regional facilitators from the Movement Strategy and Governance team are available to support applicants with MC Ambassadors grantmaking. If you are interested please sign up here. Should you have specific questions, please reach out to the MSG team via email: strategy2030@wikimedia.org or on the MS forum.
