Шановні панове! Може хтось має обліковий запис у Вікімедія, то просив би виправити в http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Appeal2/uk Це - доказ того, що спільними зусиллями ми можемо змінити МИР. на Це - доказ того, що спільними зусиллями ми можемо змінити СВІТ. З повагою, http://uk.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9A%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%B8%D1%81%D1%82%D1%83%D0%B2%D0%B0%D1%87:%D0%92%D0%BE%D0%BB%D0%BE%D0%B4%D0%B8%D0%BC%D0%B8%D1%80_%D0%A4 (:uk:Користувач:Володимир Ф)

Виправлено.--Ahonc 01:37, 19 грудня 2009 (UTC)
Анатолій, поки що не відображається (:uk:Користувач:Володимир Ф) 21 грудня 2009 (UTC). Дякую, Анатолій, вже виправлено. Очевидно мені давало кешовану (непоновлену) сторінку. --(:uk:Користувач:Володимир Ф) 10:12, 21 грудня 2009 (UTC)

Зовнішній вигляд[ред.]

У мене і в Опері, і в Фаєрфоксі номери рахунків налазять на бічне меню... --AS 21:04, 12 серпня 2010 (UTC)

У мене теж. Кращого способу написати я не знайшов. Розшир вікно браузера на весь екран та й не буде налазити.--Ahonc 21:06, 12 серпня 2010 (UTC)
Так і напишіть на Головній: „Для правильного відображення сторінок розширте вікно браузера на весь екран‟) --AS 21:09, 16 серпня 2010 (UTC)-
Анатолію, заміни це позорище на щось типу document.getElementById("p-tb").innerHTML += 'Громадська організація<br\>«ВІКІМЕДІА УКРАЇНА»<br\>Код ЄДРПОУ 36628786<br\>Рахунок № 26004274482200 UAH<br\>Рахунок № 26004274482200 USD<br\>Рахунок № 26004274482200 EUR<br\>АТ «Укрсиббанк»,<br\>код банку (МФО) 351005'; --AS 19:18, 26 серпня 2010 (UTC)
Не виходить. Пише, що Помилка: document.getElementById("p-tb") is null.--Ahonc 22:15, 26 серпня 2010 (UTC)
Гм. А спробуй огорнути в addOnloadHook(function(){ ........ }) --AS 11:07, 27 серпня 2010 (UTC)
Ти попробуй на власному monobook.js/vector.js поекспериментувати. Якщо вийде, скажеш мені, я додам.--Ahonc 12:05, 27 серпня 2010 (UTC)
Ось це працює --AS 13:16, 27 серпня 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Зроблено--Ahonc 13:24, 27 серпня 2010 (UTC)

Коли заходжу під анонімом, виконується стара версія common.js (у Вогнелисі теж) O_o --AS 11:09, 29 серпня 2010 (UTC)
Вже нормально--AS 16:57, 1 вересня 2010 (UTC)

Можливо, варто під номерами рахунків дати поклик Інші способи пожертви --AS 17:28, 13 жовтня 2010 (UTC)

Краще в меню Навігація додати пункт Пожертвуйте --Perohanych 16:39, 16 жовтня 2010 (UTC)

Гм, це тільки в мене ті рахунки збоку зайвий раз дублюються? --AS 21:23, 29 березня 2011 (UTC)

Новини[ред.]

"Тож маємо іще один (першим був кримськотатарський) розділ Вікіпедії мовою народу, що проживає в Україні." Можливо я чогось не розумію, але дійсно кримськотатарський розділ преший? Більш ранній ніж російський? --93.75.43.95 10:00, 20 грудня 2010 (UTC)

Інтерфейс головної[ред.]

Пропоную дещо змінити вигляд головної сторінки в такий спосіб, що основна інформація була у лівому стовпчику, а новини - у правому. Подібне бачив у наших польських колег. Макет зробив на сторінці Користувач:A1/проект головної. --A1 14:03, 18 січня 2012 (UTC)

Так краще. Підтримую. --Α.Μακυχα 18:42, 19 січня 2012 (UTC)
Підтримую обох Андріїв, але треба ще доопрацювати. Так, дрібничку, але з так, аби справді було що показати. І переробити усі сторінки. --Kharkivian 20:44, 23 січня 2012 (UTC)
Згоден, що є над чим ще попрацювати, але не все ж одразу :) Блок новин слід буде регулярно оновлювати... A1 20:58, 23 січня 2012 (UTC)

Ви б розбили її на куски окремими шаблонами. Ну як у Вікіпедії: окремо новини, окремо ЧВЗ, окремо розділи і т.п. А потім просто редагувати відповідний шаблон. IMHO так було би зручніше.--Ahonc 12:14, 30 січня 2012 (UTC)

Додайте блог до списку соціяльних мереж, бо те маленьке посилання непомітне --AS (обговорення) 23:14, 13 січня 2013 (UTC)

Вікісховище[ред.]

Вітаю! Вікісховище, а не Вікіцховище, там суміш розкладок, яку слід виправити. --Baseобговореннявнесок 16:16, 9 грудня 2012 (UTC)

Виправив — NickK (обговорення) 16:48, 9 грудня 2012 (UTC)

Заодно треба б додати посилання на Вікідані та Віківояж --Baseобговореннявнесок 16:17, 9 грудня 2012 (UTC)

Анонси обговорень[ред.]

На мій погляд сторінка має починатися безпосередньо з інформації про організацію, а не анонсів обговорень, що тривають. Інше для стороннього відвідувача справлятиме дещо дивне враження. Пропоную прибрати. --A1 10:32, 17 січня 2013 (UTC)

Зміни та доповнення[ред.]

Шаблон:Editprotected Слід додати проекти Вікідані та Віківояж (чи то Вікімандри) у блок на головну, а також виправити посилання на регіональні відділення згідно з Спеціальна:Інтервікі так, щоб вони виглядали як внутрішні, а не зовнішні. Можливо також варто актуалізувати список відділень згідно з Wikimedia chapters. Рекомендую також повиносити блоки на сторінки простору шаблон, і зробити їх менш захищеними, щоб більше користувачів мали доступ до їх зміни. --Baseобговореннявнесок 11:04, 2 лютого 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Зроблено щодо блоків. Щодо інтервікі, по-перше в цьому немає необхідності, по-друге далеко не всі відділення мають прямі інтервікі. Для ВМУА свого часу я вибив [[wmua:]], а от австрійці наприклад такого не зробили. --A1 20:20, 2 лютого 2013 (UTC)
Ну чого поступово інтервікі префікси роздають, дивно, якщо ще досі не у всіх є. Так я щодо блоків не зрозумів — оновити то Ви оновили, але ж блоки Ви не винесли на підсторінки. Я то не заперечую, але просто шаблон:done в одному реченні із словами виглядає дивно. Можна ще додати медіавіківікі (mw:) але може й не треба. Ну і вікіманії там всякі і т.п. допоміжні сайту Фонду, але це вже так, щоб до ідеалу довести, поки ж мене влаштовує --Baseобговореннявнесок 20:43, 2 лютого 2013 (UTC)

Nominations are being accepted for 2015 Wikimedia Foundation elections[ред.]

This is a message from the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee. Translations are available.

Greetings,

I am pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections. This year the Board and the FDC Staff are looking for a diverse set of candidates from regions and projects that are traditionally under-represented on the board and in the movement as well as candidates with experience in technology, product or finance. To this end they have published letters describing what they think is needed and, recognizing that those who know the community the best are the community themselves, the election committee is accepting nominations for community members you think should run and will reach out to those nominated to provide them with information about the job and the election process.

This year, elections are being held for the following roles:

Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long term sustainability of the Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. There are three positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the board elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
The Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) makes recommendations about how to allocate Wikimedia movement funds to eligible entities. There are five positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) Ombud
The FDC Ombud receives complaints and feedback about the FDC process, investigates complaints at the request of the Board of Trustees, and summarizes the investigations and feedback for the Board of Trustees on an annual basis. One position is being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC Ombudsperson elections page.

The candidacy submission phase lasts from 00:00 UTC April 20 to 23:59 UTC May 5 for the Board and from 00:00 UTCApril 20 to 23:59 UTC April 30 for the FDC and FDC Ombudsperson. This year, we are accepting both self-nominations and nominations of others. More information on this election and the nomination process can be found on the 2015 Wikimedia elections page on Meta-Wiki.

Please feel free to post a note about the election on your project's village pump. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the talk page on Meta, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections -at- wikimedia.org

Introducing the Wikimedia Affiliates mailing list[ред.]

Affiliations Committee logo.svg

This is an update from the Wikimedia Affiliations Committee. Translations are available.

The Wikimedia Affiliations Committee is pleased to introduce the launch of the Wikimedia Affiliates mailing list, which is basically a place for all the affiliates (chapters, thematic organizations, user groups) to discuss issues related to affiliates, make announcements to other affiliates, and collaborate on activities and community-wide events. The idea is to help facilitate the dialogue affiliates across our movement, plus collaborative discussions like community-wide activities, joint edit-a-thons, regional conferences, blog/report posts, or other communications from affiliates.

Each Wikimedia movement affiliate is allocated three spots on the mailing list. All affiliates may contact the Affiliations Committee to request additional spots if needed.

Please find a bit more information on Meta-Wiki and do not hesitate to contact the Affiliations Committee if you have further questions.

Thank you - Wikimedia Affiliations Committee

Your input requested on the proposed #FreeBassel banner campaign[ред.]

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!

2015 Affiliations Committee call for candidates[ред.]

This is an update from the Wikimedia Affiliations Committee. Translations are available.

Affiliations Committee logo.svg

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 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.

The committee consists of twelve members, six of whom are selected every twelve months for staggered two-year terms.

Key skills

Being a part of the Affiliations Committee requires communication with volunteers all over the world, negotiating skills, cultural sensitivity, and the ability to understand legal texts. We try to get a healthy mix of different skill sets in our members. The key skills and experience that we look for in candidates are:

  • Excitement by the challenge of helping to empower groups of volunteers worldwide.
  • Willingness to process applications through a set, perhaps bureaucratic process.
  • Readiness to participate in political discussions on the role and future of affiliates, models of affiliations, and similar questions.
  • Availability of up to 5 hours per week, and the time to participate in a monthly ~2 hour voice/video meeting.
  • International orientation.
  • Very good communication skills in English.
  • Ability to work and communicate with other languages and cultures.
  • Strong understanding of the structure and work of affiliates and the WMF.
  • Knowledge of different legal systems and experience in community building and organising are a plus.
  • Effective communication skills in other languages are a major plus.
  • Experience with or in an active affiliate is a major plus.
  • Willingness to use one's real name in committee activities (including contacts with current and potential affiliates) when appropriate.

We are looking for people who are not afraid of the workload and are motivated by helping other volunteers to get organized and form communities that further our mission around the world.

Selection process

As a reflection of our commitment to openness, transparency, and bilateral engagement with the Wikimedia community, the 2015 member selection process will include a public review and comment period. All applications received by the committee will be posted on Meta (at Affiliations Committee/Candidates/2015), and the community will be invited to provide comments and feedback about each candidate.

At the end of the public comment period, the applications will be voted on by the members of the committee who are not seeking re-election, taking into account comments put forward by the committee's members, advisors, WMF staff and board liaisons, and the community. A final decision will be made by mid-January 2016, with new members expected to join later that month.

How to apply

If you are interested in joining the committee, please send an application to affcom@lists.wikimedia.org by 31 December 2015. You will get a confirmation that your application was received.

Your application should include the following:

  • Your full name
  • Your contact information (including e-mail address and username)
  • A statement describing your relevant experience, skills, and motivation for joining the committee.

Your statement will be published for community review and feedback, so please do not include any information that you are not comfortable sharing.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me and/or the committee as a whole. 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!

Best regards,
Carlos Colina

Get involved in Wikipedia 15![ред.]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

International-Space-Station wordmark blue.svg

As many of you know, January 15 is Wikipedia’s 15th Birthday!

People around the world are getting involved in the celebration and have started adding their events on Meta Page. While we are celebrating Wikipedia's birthday, we hope that all projects and affiliates will be able to utilize this celebration to raise awareness of our community's efforts.

Haven’t started planning? Don’t worry, there’s lots of ways to get involved. Here are some ideas:

Everything is linked on the Wikipedia 15 Meta page. You’ll find a set of ten data visualization works that you can show at your events, and a list of all the Wikipedia 15 logos that community members have already designed.

If you have any questions, please contact Zachary McCune or Joe Sutherland.

Thanks and Happy nearly Wikipedia 15!

Новий дизайн головної[ред.]

Привіт усім, AnnaKhrobolova пропонує зібрати найкращий досвід инших відділів фонду й зробити вигляд нашої головної сторінки сучаснішим і професійнішим. Ось деякі приклади головних сторінок: --Юрій Булка (обговорення) 11:22, 22 лютого 2016 (UTC)

Приклади[ред.]

Ідеї[ред.]

  • Візуальне оформлення — річ вторинна. Воно має бути повністю підпорядковане тому, яку інформацію ми хочемо показати на головній. Зараз у нас основна проблема — що там забагато тексту для такого сучасного оформлення, як, приміром, у Wikimedia DC. Треба вирішити, що там має бути, а що можна звідти забрати. --Юрій Булка (обговорення) 11:22, 22 лютого 2016 (UTC)
  • Найбільше з цих прикладів сподобався Wikimedia DC. За їхнім взірцем хотів би зберегти спрощену бічну ліву панель, а в тілі головної сторінки виділити у кольорових кнопках Майбутні події (зі списком вишколів і подій нижче) Про нас і Новини (може перенаправляти на блоґ). --Friend (обговорення) 11:14, 26 лютого 2016 (UTC)

Оживити 2019[ред.]

Пропоную оживити тему, бо ми дійсно надто скромно, блідо й дрібним кеглем виглядаємо. --Friend (обговорення) 23:49, 13 лютого 2019 (UTC)

Що саме пропонуєш? можеш втілити своє бачення оживлення, показати передперегляд для обговорення? --AnnaKhrobolova (WMUA) (обговорення) 13:38, 15 лютого 2019 (UTC)

Пошук з апострофом[ред.]

Апостроф можна представляти трьома способами в Unicode:

  • U+0027 apostrophe (') — зворотньо-сумісний прямий апостроф;
  • U+2019 right single quotation mark (ʼ);
  • U+02BC modifier letter apostrophe (’).

В назві статей, як я бачу, зазвичай використовується перший (U+0027 '): w:Кам'янка (Черкаська область).

При цьому (при відсутності редиректу) пошук з використанням другого (U+2019 ’) спрацьовує (якщо виконується швидкий пошук з поля в кутку, то навіть виконується автоматичний перехід).

А от (при відсутності редиректу) пошук з використанням третього (U+02BC ʼ) — ні (відповідно при використанні швидкого пошуку також). Якщо дозволити підказки (runsuggestion=1), то результати виглядатимуть дещо краще (воно вважатиме використання такого апострофу помилкою і відразу шукатиме з прямим) — але факт в тому, що третій (U+02BC ʼ) обробляється гірше за другий (U+2019 ’).

Але зараз йде тенденція до використання саме третього виду. Саме його вирішено залишити в ролі основного в розкладці Ukrainian Unicode. Саме його дозволено використовувати в українських інтернаціоналізованих доменних іменах.

Тож було б добре, якби пошук з апострофом другого виду (U+2019 ’) і пошук з апострофом третього виду (U+02BC ʼ) працювали однаково. Sasha1024 (обговорення) 18:31, 20 вересня 2016 (UTC)

@Sasha1024: Це потрібно звертатися не до ГО «Вікімедіа Україна» (яка не має доступу до рушія вікі), а до розробників. Для апострофа U+2019 ’ було подано заявку для опрацювання цього апострофа саме так, як ви спостерігаєте phab:T23002. Можете подати аналогічну заявку для такої ж обробки апострофа U+02BC ʼ — NickK (обговорення) 22:10, 21 вересня 2016 (UTC)
@NickK, я думав, що розробники сидять саме тут. Дякую, зрозуміло, подам. Подав phab:T146358. Sasha1024 (обговорення) 09:02, 22 вересня 2016 (UTC)

De-Recognition of Affiliates with Long-standing Non-Compliance[ред.]

This is an update from the Wikimedia Affiliations Committee. Translations are available.

Recognition as a Wikimedia affiliate - a chapter, thematic organization, or user group - is a privilege that allows an independent group to officially use the Wikimedia name to further the Wikimedia mission. While most Wikimedia affiliates adhere to the basic compliance standards set forth in their agreements with the Wikimedia Foundation, a protocol has been developed to address the exceptional cases when a Wikimedia affiliate does not meet basic compliance standards and their continued recognition as a Wikimedia affiliate presents a risk to the Wikimedia movement.

In the past year, the Affiliations Committee - with support from Wikimedia Foundation staff - has made a concerted effort to address a handful of chapters with long-standing issues of non-compliance. As a result, in the coming days and months, a small number of chapters that have been unable to return to compliance through their efforts in the past year will not have their chapter agreements renewed. As a consequence, these organizations will no longer have the additional rights to use the Wikimedia trademarks, including the Wikimedia name, that had been granted under those agreements.

If you have questions about what this means for community members in the affected affiliates’ region or language areas, we have put together a basic FAQ. The FAQ talk page is available for additional questions and comments, and the Affiliations Committee is happy to answer questions directly.

Review of initial updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[ред.]

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. Message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

The Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. For 15 years, Wikimedians have worked together to build the largest free knowledge resource in human history. During this time, we've grown from a small group of editors to a diverse network of editors, developers, affiliates, readers, donors, and partners. Today, we are more than a group of websites. We are a movement rooted in values and a powerful vision: all knowledge for all people. As a movement, we have an opportunity to decide where we go from here.

This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve. We hope to design an inclusive process that makes space for everyone: editors, community leaders, affiliates, developers, readers, donors, technology platforms, institutional partners, and people we have yet to reach. There will be multiple ways to participate including on-wiki, in private spaces, and in-person meetings. You are warmly invited to join and make your voice heard.

The immediate goal is to have a strategic direction by Wikimania 2017 to help frame a discussion on how we work together toward that strategic direction.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Beginning with this message, monthly reviews of these updates will be sent to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a review of the updates that have been sent so far:

More information about the movement strategy is available on the Meta-Wiki 2017 Wikimedia movement strategy portal.

Overview #2 of updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[ред.]

As we mentioned last month, the Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Each month, we are sending overviews of these updates to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a overview of the updates that have been sent since our message last month:

More information about the movement strategy is available on the Meta-Wiki 2017 Wikimedia movement strategy portal.

Start of the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees elections[ред.]

Please accept our apologies for cross-posting this message. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee, I am pleased to announce that self-nominations are being accepted for the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Elections.

The Board of Trustees (Board) is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long-term sustainability of the Wikimedia Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. More information about this role can be found on Meta-Wiki. Please read the letter from the Board of Trustees calling for candidates.

The candidacy submission phase will last from April 7 (00:00 UTC) to April 20 (23:59 UTC).

We will also be accepting questions to ask the candidates from April 7 to April 20. You can submit your questions on Meta-Wiki.

Once the questions submission period has ended on April 20, the Elections Committee will then collate the questions for the candidates to respond to beginning on April 21.

The goal of this process is to fill the three community-selected seats on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. The election results will be used by the Board itself to select its new members.

The full schedule for the Board elections is as follows. All dates are inclusive, that is, from the beginning of the first day (UTC) to the end of the last.

  • April 7 (00:00 UTC) – April 20 (23:59 UTC) – Board nominations
  • April 7 – April 20 – Board candidates questions submission period
  • April 21 – April 30 – Board candidates answer questions
  • May 1 – May 14 – Board voting period
  • May 15–19 – Board vote checking
  • May 20 – Board result announcement goal

In addition to the Board elections, we will also soon be holding elections for the following roles:

  • Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
    • There are five positions being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.
  • Funds Dissemination Committee Ombudsperson (Ombuds)
    • One position is being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.

Please note that this year the Board of Trustees elections will be held before the FDC and Ombuds elections. Candidates who are not elected to the Board are explicitly permitted and encouraged to submit themselves as candidates to the FDC or Ombuds positions after the results of the Board elections are announced.

More information on this year's elections can be found on Meta-Wiki. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the election talk page on Meta-Wiki, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections(at)wikimedia.org.

On behalf of the Election Committee,
Katie Chan, Chair, Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee
Joe Sutherland, Community Advocate, Wikimedia Foundation

Share your feedback in this global Wikimedia survey[ред.]

Dear Wikimedia Affiliates,
My name is María Cruz and I work for the Wikimedia Foundation on the Learning and Evaluation team. In one week or so, the Foundation is starting a global survey to learn about the experiences and feedback of Wikimedians. I am writing here, because I wanted to share with you a bit more about the project.
The survey is called "Wikimedia Communities and Contributors" and is conducted annually. We will send the survey to editors across all the Wikimedia projects, as well as Wikimedia affiliates and volunteer developers. This survey is going to be our way of making sure that we can hear feedback from a significant number of users from across the projects. This research supports editors and Wikipedia’s mission. This is our second annual CE Insights survey, and we look forward to improving it every year.
We will be contacting 2 people from each affiliate, based on the primary contact information that we have. Each affiliate will receive an additional third link which they can distribute to any leader in their chapter or user group.
Go to the project page to see the results of last year’s survey, and to see how your feedback helps the Wikimedia Foundation support communities. You can sign up to be notified about the results of the survey, or to learn how you can help with planning the survey next year.
If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please feel free to send them to Edward Galvez's talk page on Meta-Wiki or email him directly at surveysШаблон:AtwikimediaШаблон:Dotorg in any language. You can learn more about this project and read about frequently asked questions. You can also share your feedback on Meta-Wiki.

Thank you for your time supporting this project!
María Cruz

2018 Affiliations Committee call for candidates[ред.]

This is an update from the Wikimedia Affiliations Committee.

Affiliations Committee logo.svg

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 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.

The committee can include up to fifteen members, roughly half of whom are selected every twelve months for staggered two-year terms. Those joining the committee during the current process will serve a two-year term ending in December 2020.

Key skills

Being a part of the Affiliations Committee requires communication with volunteers all over the world, negotiating skills, cultural sensitivity, and the ability to understand legal texts. We look for a healthy mix of different skill sets in our members, including the following key skills and experience:

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

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 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.

Selection process

As a reflection of our commitment to openness, transparency, and bilateral engagement with the Wikimedia community, the 2018 member selection process will include a public review and comment period. All applications received by the committee will be posted on Meta at Affiliations Committee/Candidates/December 2018, and the community will be invited to provide comments and feedback about each candidate.

At the end of the public comment period, the applications will be voted on by the members of the committee who are not seeking re-election, 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 by mid-January 2019, with new members expected to join later that month.

How to apply

If you are interested in joining the committee, please post your application on the nomination page and send an email announcing your application to affcom@lists.wikimedia.org by 31 December 2018. Your application must include the following information:

- Your full name and Wikimedia username
- A statement describing your relevant experience, skills, and motivation for joining the committee.
- 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 to the committee that makes you a uniquely qualified candidate?


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me and/or the committee as a whole. 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!

Best regards,
Kirill Lokshin
Chair, Affiliations Committee

Help us make Wikipedia talk pages more accessible to more participants[ред.]

Hello!

Our team at the Wikimedia Foundation is working on a project to improve the ease-of-use and productivity of wiki talk pages. As an affiliate, I can imagine you’ve run into challenges explaining talk pages to first-time participants, or it is an consultation that would interest your members.

We want all contributors to be able to talk to each other on the wikis – to ask questions, to resolve differences, to organize projects and to make decisions. Communication is essential for the depth and quality of our content, and the health of our communities.

We're currently leading a global consultation on how to improve talk pages, and we're looking for groups that can discuss and report on their experiences using (or helping other people to use) wiki talk pages. We'd like to invite you to participate, with the user groups that you belong to. You can learn more about the consultation at Mediawiki.org and if you're interested in hosting a group discussion (on-wiki or off-wiki), you can sign up at the participant sign-up group.

If you’d like to participate or if you have any questions, please contact us and let us know. The more people participate from many horizons, the better the outcome will be.

Thank you! Trizek (WMF) 15:29, 8 березня 2019 (UTC)

Call for complementary facilitators and more to get the ASBS 2019 process started![ред.]

User (13635) - The Noun Project.svg

Hi everyone, hope all is fine with you!

The next weeks will be intense, as affiliates figure out their participation in the process that will soon select 2 people for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. Since new Bylaws established that the user groups are for the first time going to be involved in such process, a lot more support than before is certainly going to be necessary, among other things, for big and healthy conversations on the topic. Hence, please encourage members of your group to become a complementary facilitator, or sign up yourself! You can add yourself to the list on Meta or reply to me to flag availability. One person from the facilitators group should soon be selected to liaise with the Foundation Board’s Chair, María Sefidari, on behalf of all affiliates, and it may be wise to also find a deputy for them.

Finally, if you can think of any huge obstacles that would prevent your group from participating to the process (for instance, a language barrier, or lack of good decision-making mechanisms, etc.), please reach out to me directly: it is really important that we hear about them as early as possible. Thank you! Elitre (WMF) 15:23, 12 березня 2019 (UTC)

Update on the Affiliate-selected Board seats 2019 process[ред.]

Hi all,

The Election Facilitators met on Friday, April 5. We finalized the resolution, which is now frozen. The Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation will be asked to approve the resolution.

We have made two small changes to be more inclusive. We extended the date for compliance with AffCom reporting and being in good standing to May 7 to allow time for as many Affiliates as possible to be current with these requirements. The Election Facilitators adjusted the language in case a quorum is not met during the election.

On the talk page of the resolution one issue was raised. The issue looks like to be about a possible candidate. Affiliates will have ample time to discuss the merits of candidates during nomination time, screening time, and they can cast their votes on candidates. The Election Facilitators didn't see the necessity for this change, and left the resolution on this point unchanged.

The Election Facilitators will be Abhinav Srivastava, Lane Rasberry, Jeffrey Keefer, Ad Huikeshoven, Neal McBurnett and Alessandro Marchetti. We will welcome more volunteers to assist us in this process, to reach out to the diversity in language and gender in our communities, and do so in an advisory role.

The nomination period opens on April 15. We are going to prepare nomination pages on Meta. You can expect a call for nominations. There is a draft call, including a candidates' profile section with non-binding guidelines about experience and characteristics for nominees. You are welcome to add your insights, or discuss on the talk page.

Erica Litrenta (WMF staff) supports us in this process. She will reach out to all affiliates through mail and other channels to make sure we are up to date with (user)name and contact details of your primary contact.

On behalf of the Election Facilitators, Ad Huikeshoven 10:52, 6 квітня 2019 (UTC)

Update about the Affiliate-selected Board seats process 2019[ред.]

ASBS 2019.pdf

Hello everyone!

  • The Resolution has been approved by the Board of Trustees;
  • Nominations phase is now open, from April 15 00:00 UTC to April 30 23:59 UTC. See the Call for Candidates and Nominations pages;
    • Community members may ask questions of the candidates;
  • Your main representative has just received an email to confirm that they are indeed the primary contact and will perform official actions on behalf of your group (such as endorsing candidates and then voting). Some groups also need to verify their eligibility status in due time, as explained in the email;
  • New content is available to spread awareness around the process - the infographic on this page has clickable links and can be translated, and a primer is available, that we hope will be particularly helpful to those new to such a process;
  • Finally, you are welcome to help with translations! Pick one page from the ASBS category and, in the next couple of weeks, please consider translating profiles of the candidates in particular.

Thanks for your attention! The Facilitators for ASBS 2019, 07:33, 15 квітня 2019 (UTC)

Correct links for the ASBS process[ред.]

Привіт. My apologies for the mistake and for the noise :) here's the list:

Affiliate-selected Board seats 2019 process: your representative[ред.]

Nuvola apps important.png

Привіт. The name of the only person who will vote on behalf of this group to select the next two Board members is now at m:Affiliate-selected Board seats/2019/Eligible entities. Please contact me directly as soon as possible if you need any kind of corrections there. There's only a few hours left to endorse candidates, and only the official voter can do that. I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that you can make a difference with the necessary translations.

Appreciate your attention and your support so far! Дякуємо! Elitre (WMF) and Facilitators of ASBS 2019, 12:15, 29 квітня 2019 (UTC)
