Moving article tools.jpg

(Прывітаньне! Калі ласка, дапамажыце перакласьці на вашую мову)

Next week (the week of February 6), the Wikimedia Foundation Web team will move some links from the side menu ("sidebar") to a new menu on other side of the screen.

This will make it easier to intuitively use all the links and tools within our interface. The table of contents will also appear a bit higher up the screen because the sidebar will be shorter. The latter change would mostly be interesting for editors. This is because readers use the sidebar much more rarely.

Why we are changing this

The interface does not distinguish between the links and tools that are relevant to the website and the links and tools that are relevant to a single page. Main page, random page, recent changes, are in the first group. What links here, related changes, cite this page, belong to the second one. This mix is confusing to new readers. Also new editors are not familiar with what each link does. Mixing these groups makes it less likely for people to explore these tools naturally.

This change also addresses the concern for the location of the table of contents. Previously, some editors using an earlier version of Vector 2022 told us that because the table of contents appeared below the sidebar, it was placed too much down below the page. After this change, the sidebar will be shorter and thus will shift the table of contents further up in the page. Also, this change will reduce the white space on the page by using more of the space for the display of tools.

Gadgets' compatibility

Technically skilled editors may need to update some gadgets and user scripts. Some of these might become redundant or obsolete. We provide support for users who would like to maintain the compatibility. Please explore this section of our documentation for more information on gadget compatibility.

Пераклад першых 4-х абзацаў звароту вышэй: «На наступным тыдні, што пачынаецца 6 лютага, вэб-дружына Фундацыі «Вікімэдыя» перанясе некалькі спасылак з бакавога мэню ў новае мэню на іншым баку экрана. Гэта інтуітыўна аблегчыць выкарыстаньне ўсіх спасылак і прыладаў інтэрфэйсу. Таксама табліца зьместу будзе ўзьнікаць на экране крыху вышэй, бо бакавое мэню стане карацейшым. Далейшае зьмяненьне будзе пераважна цікавым для рэдактараў, бо чытачы карыстаюцца бакавым мэню значна радзей. Прычына зьмяненьня: інтэрфэйс ня робіць розьніцы між спасылкамі і прыладамі, дарэчнымі для вэб-бачыны і асобнай старонкі. Галоўная старонка, выпадковая старонка і апошнія зьмены ў першай групе. Спасылкі на старонку, зьвязаныя рэдагаваньні і цытаваць гэтую старонку — у другой. Гэтая мешаніна бянтэжыць новых чытачоў. Таксама новыя рэдактары не знаёмыя з тым, што робіць кожная спасылка. Перамешваньне гэтых групаў робіць менш верагодным звычайнае вывучэньне людзьмі гэтых прыладаў. Гэтае зьмяненьне таксама вырашае пытаньне разьмяшчэньня табліцы зьместу. Раней некаторыя рэдактары, якія карысталіся ранейшым выданьнем «Вэктара-2022», паведамлялі нам, што табліца зьместу месьцілася на старонцы надта нізка, бо ўзьнікала пад бакавым мэню».--Удзельнік:W 12:10, 4 лютага 2023 (UTC+3)

Замежныя моўныя спасылкі[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

Здароўя вам шаноўныя суседзі! У мяне праблема: калі я зьвязваю свае артыкулы (на тарашкевіца) з замежнымі мовамі, яны не зьяўляюцца ў гэтым сьпісе. Ці можна гэта выправіць? Євдоким (гутаркі) 03:31, 26 студзеня 2023 (+03)Адказаць[адказаць]

Вітаю! Як маецеся? Лепей скарыстаць пошук аб'екта ў саміх Вікізьвестках на іншай мове. Раней зьвязваў ваш першы артыкул Бізантыйскі абрад. З найлепшымі пажаданьнямі,--Удзельнік:W 9:45, 26 студзеня 2023 (UTC+3)

Вялікі дзякуй за давер. Яшчэ магчыма скарыстаць даведку Вікіпэдыя:Інтэрвікі#Даданьне спасылак: «Націснуўшы ў Вікізьвестках кнопку «рэдагаваць», у самым нізе сьпісу інтэрвікі-спасылак вы ўбачыце два пустыя вокны для ўводу мовы і назвы артыкулу. У першым вакне ўпішыце код мовы («be_x_old»), у другім — назву створанага артыкулу. Пасьля гэтага націсьніце «захаваць».--Удзельнік:W 18:38, 29 студзеня 2023 (UTC+3)
І яшчэ адна заўвага: тут выразна бачна, што на моўнай панэлі ёсьць дзьве спасылкі на тарашкевіцу: адна зь вялікай літары (як і мае быць), другая з малой літары (якую трэба прыбраць). Вы можаце гэта выправіць??? --Удзельнік:Євдоким 01:18, 2 лютага 2023 году

Вітаньне, шаноўнае спадарства!

Я пачытаў мінулае абмеркаваньне наконт трасьлітарацыі артыкулаў у лацінку й хацеў бы працяшнуць яго тут. Я асабіста вельмі зацікаўлены аб падрымцы лацінскага правапісу, таму я зьбіраюся пісаць ва ўсе неабходныя месцы каб атрымаць тэхнічны дазвол гэта рабіць і хацеў бы пачуць вашыя думкі й падтрамкі ў адказах ніжэй, калі ласка! -- Alokim (гутаркі) 11:34, 8 лістапада 2022 (+03)Адказаць[адказаць]

Я толькі бачу магчымасьць неяк тэхнічна зрабіць пераключэньне з кірыліцы на лацінку, як гэта зроблена ў сэрбскай Вікіпэдыі. Калі гаворка вядзецца аб тым, каб пісаць у гэтым разьдзеле артыкулы абодвума альфабэтамі, то нейкая непажаданая мяшанка адбудзіцца, на мой погляд. Dymitr 12:24, 8 лістапада 2022 (+03)Адказаць[адказаць]
Менавіта як у Сэрбскае Вікіпэдыі. --Alokim (гутаркі) 13:12, 8 лістапада 2022 (+03)Адказаць[адказаць]
Вітаю! Як маецеся? Пастараюся перакласьці для Вас Правіла моўнай прапановы. У нашым разьдзеле хутчэй патавае становішча. Каб захаваць Беларускую Вікіпэдыю клясычным правапісам, у сакавіку 2007 году за дзень да набыцьця моцы абноўленага Правіла стварылі афіцыйны разьдзел. Абноўленае правіла вымагае код Міжнароднай арганізацыі стандартызацыі (МАС) 639 1–3, якога ў тарашкевіцы не было. Створаныя да абнаўленьня Правіла моўныя разьдзелы бяз коду захавалі, калі адначасна існавалі афіцыйныя разьдзелы. Пры гэтым, забаранілі ствараць новыя моўныя разьдзелы бяз коду. Ад 29 кастрычніка 2021 году амэрыканскі «Кансорцыюм Юнікоду» (Маўнтын-Вію, штат Каліфорнія) дадаў беларускі клясычны правапіс у 40-е выданьне Агульнага рэпазыторыя моўных зьвестак (АРМЗ) пасьля адпаведнага звароту 11 чэрвеня 2021 году. У выніку і надалей у наступных выданьнях АРМЗ архіў «core.zip» зьмяшчае ў падтэчцы «/common/main/» файл «be_TARASK.xml». Гэта дае тэхнічнае падмацаваньне выкарыстаньню тарашкевіцы ў вікіпраектах і Лінуксе без таго коду, але не дае права зьмяняць існыя або ствараць новыя моўныя разьдзелы. З найлепшымі пажаданьнямі,--Удзельнік:W 19:30, 8 лістапада 2022 (UTC+3)
Гэта вельмі цікава! Але мова ж ідзе пра правапіс, не адасоблены разьдзел. Як казалі вышэй таксама як у Сэрбскае Вікі. Ці гэтыя стандарты зьмяшчаюць пісьменнасьць й закручвюць рукі менавіта такім шляхам? --Alokim (гутаркі) 20:11, 8 лістапада 2022 (+03)Адказаць[адказаць]
Так. Каб пераканацца, дастаткова дадаць спасылку на наш артыкул у Вікізьвесткі, дзе дагэтуль be_x_old замест be_tarask. Тут бы разабрацца, да каго зьвяртацца ў гэтай справе.--Удзельнік:W 20:23, 8 лістапада 2022 (UTC+3)

Вітаньне, @Alokimer and @Lesnas ättling. Apologies for not writing in Belarusian, and for my late reply. I sent two messages here: The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks? and Update on Vector 2022. There were no comments, so my team decided to change the skin here. As I wrote, any logged in user may switch back to the previous skin. We also ask for comments on specific issues. Perhaps there are still bugs or glitches which could be fixed. Дзякую!

Hi, SGrabarczuk (WMF). Thank you for your answer. To be honest, I tried to find if you wrote any message, before I wrote to you, but it was not easy to do it, because we use to write on the top (and I am almost inactive as a user this year). The problem is, as I said, the new vector, especially when you are just a simple reader (I mean, when you´re not inlogged). It is extremly inconfortable and unpleasant, and if you use a "foreign" computer and is not inlogged, you can´t even choose the old version. So please, give us (both users and readers) back Vector 2010. Let the vector 2022 be as an option for people who like experiments, but we like our old good and simple interface. Thank you for your understanding.--Lesnas ättling (гутаркі) 17:11, 8 лістапада 2022 (+03)Адказаць[адказаць]

Hi, SGrabarczuk (WMF)! How are you? Thank you so much for asking about comments on specific issues, such as bugs or glitches to fix. I have stumbled upon an issue with good & featured articles, because those articles are awarded stars in the upper right corner, which cover some letters of the menu in the "Vector (2022)" skin, as in Хвойнікі. Can this issue be solved by moving the list of languages below the article, as it is done on the main page (Галоўная старонка)? Best wishes,--Удзельнік:W 19:45, 8 лістапада 2022 (+03)Адказаць[адказаць]
Hello @W. Thanks for letting me know. Yes! The instruction how to do that is the same as the answer about coordinates here. The whole problem exists because the indicator tag (which we recommend to use) is "only" 8 years old, and oftentimes, the icons which are now misplaced have even older code. But now, if you use the indicator tag, the templates will be "future-proof", because this tag is a predictable standard.

Next steps: Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) and UCoC Enforcement Guidelines[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

After reviewing vote results and accompanying comments, the Community Affairs Committee decided to launch a fresh round of community consultations. After that, the refined text of the Guidelines will be put for another vote.

The comments have shown that community members unequivocally support creating a safe and welcoming culture that stops hostile and toxic behaviour, supports victims of such actions, and encourages good-faith people to be productive on the Wikimedia projects. While the results did show that support for the UCoC Guidelines exceeded the required 50%+1 vote, the comments highlighted that further revisions would be required to have strong community support to follow through with enforcement.

Therefore the Committee instructed the Foundation to:

Conduct another round of community consultations, and put the newly-refined Guidelines for a community vote.

The WMF team will seek feedback on four topics that stood out among the voter comments. You can learn more about the four topics and the Committee's findings on this Meta page.

Report on Voter Feedback from Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines Ratification [рэдагаваць крыніцу]

Hello all,

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) project team has completed the analysis of the feedback accompanying the ratification vote on the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines.

Following the completion of the UCoC Enforcement Guidelines Draft in 2022, the guidelines were voted on by the Wikimedian community. Voters cast votes from 137 communities, with the top 9 communities being: English, German, French, Russian, Polish, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Italian Wikipedias, and Meta-wiki.

Those voting had the opportunity to provide comments on the contents of the Draft document. 658 participants left comments. 77% of the comments are written in English. Voters wrote comments in 24 languages with the largest numbers in English (508), German (34), Japanese (28), French (25), and Russian (12).

A report will be sent to the Revision Drafting Committee who will refine the enforcement guidelines based on the community feedback received from the recently concluded vote. A public version of the report is published on Meta-wiki here. The report is available in translated versions on Meta-wiki. Калі ласка, дапамажыце перакласьці на вашую мову

Again, we thank all who participated in the vote and discussions. We invite everyone to contribute during the next community discussions. More information about the Universal Code of Conduct and Enforcement Guidelines can be found on Meta-wiki.

Revisions to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

Hi all,

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.

Having analysed the comments of community members who participated in the vote on the Guidelines for implementing the UCoC, the CAC decided to launch another round of community consultations. Upon completion of these consultations, the community will have an opportunity to vote on the revised UCoC Implementation Guidelines.

According to the analysis, the comments highlighted three critical groups of questions:

1. On (mandatory) training in the UCoC and its Guidelines;

2. On balancing privacy protection and due process;

3. On the requirement that certain groups of users affirm they will acknowledge and adhere to the Universal Code of Conduct.

The Revisions Committee kindly asks you to leave your answers and comments on this Meta page. (See full announcement).

Hello,

The Movement Communications and Movement Strategy and Governance teams invite you to discuss the 2022-23 Wikimedia Foundation Annual Plan, a plan of record for the Wikimedia Foundation's work.

These conversations continue Maryana Iskander's Wikimedia Foundation Chief Executive Officer listening tour.

The conversations are about these questions:

  • The 2030 Wikimedia Movement Strategy sets a direction toward "knowledge as a service" and "knowledge equity". The Wikimedia Foundation wants to plan according to these two goals. How do you think the Wikimedia Foundation should apply them to our work?
  • The Wikimedia Foundation continues to explore better ways of working at a regional level. We have increased our regional focus in areas like grants, new features, and community conversations. What is working well? How can we improve?
  • Anyone can contribute to the Movement Strategy process. Let's collect your activities, ideas, requests, and lessons learned. How can the Wikimedia Foundation better support the volunteers and affiliates working in Movement Strategy activities?

You can find the schedule of calls on Meta-wiki.

The information will be available in multiple languages. Each call will be open to anyone to attend. Live interpretation will be available in some calls.

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election 2022 - Call for Election Volunteers[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

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

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.

There were a total of 74 wikis that did not participate in 2017 that produced voters in the 2021 election. Can you help increase the participation even more?

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.

Invitation to participate in the #WPWPCampaign 2022[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

Dear Wikimedians,

We are glad to inform you that the 2022 edition of Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos campaign is coming up in July.

This is a formal invitation to invite individuals and communities to join the campaign to help improve Wikipedia articles with photos and contextual images.

The campaign will run from July 1 to August 31, 2022 and several communities and Wikimedia Affiliates have already indicated interest to organize the campaign in their localities. Please find your community or community closer to you to participate: WPWP2022 Campaign: Participating Communities.

The campaign primarily aims to promote using images from Wikimedia Commons to enrich Wikipedia articles that are lacking them. Participants will choose among Wikipedia pages without photos, then add a suitable file from among the many thousands of photos in the Wikimedia Commons, especially those uploaded from thematic contests (Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc.) over the years. In this third edition of the campaign, eligibility criteria have been revised based on feedback and campaign Evaluation Reports of the previous editions. Please find more details about these changes and our FAQ here on Meta-Wiki

Propose statements for the 2022 Election Compass[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

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

Revised Enforcement Draft Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

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. --AAkhmedova (WMF) (гутаркі) 11:54, 13 верасьня 2022 (+03)Адказаць[адказаць]

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

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 skin[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

[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.

[Try it out] Try out the new skin by going to the appearance tab in your preferences and selecting Vector 2022 from the list of skins.

How can editors change and customize this skin?[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

It's possible to configure and personalize our changes. We support volunteers who create new gadgets and user scripts. Check out our repository for a list of currently available customizations, or add your own.

Our plan[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

If no large concerns are raised, we plan on deploying in the week of October 3, 2022. If your community would like to request more time to discuss the changes, hit the button and write to us. We can adjust the calendar.

If you'd like ask our team anything, if you have questions, concerns, or additional thoughts, please ping me here or write on the talk page of the project. We will gladly answer! Also, see our FAQ. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 07:14, 22 верасьня 2022 (+03)Адказаць[адказаць]

Hello. I'm sorry for not communicating in your language. I'll be grateful if you translated my message. I'm writing on behalf of the Web team working on the new skin, Vector 2022.

We wanted to apologize for the delays in the deployment of Vector 2022. We know many of you are waiting for this eagerly. We have been delaying the deployment because we have been working on the logos. It has taken us more time than originally expected. Once the logos are ready, we will let you know the exact date of deployment. We are planning for either the next (more likely) or the following week. If your wiki doesn't currently have a localized logo, we encourage you to reach out to us and we can help make one.

We invite you to get involved in the project. Contact us if you have any questions or need any help, particularly with the compatibility of gadgets and user scripts. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 02:24, 20 кастрычніка 2022 (+03)Адказаць[адказаць]

Invitation to attend “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter” Sessions[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

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

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.
  • North and South 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.

We thank you for your time and participation.

Movement Charter: End of the community consultation round 1[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

Hi everyone,

On behalf of the Movement Charter Drafting Committee (MCDC), we would like to thank everyone who has participated in our first community wide consultation period on the Movement Charter.

People from across the Movement shared their feedback and thoughts on the content of the Movement Charter. If you have not had the chance to share your opinion yet, you are welcome to do so still by giving the drafts a read and filling out the anonymous survey, which is accessible in 12+ languages. The survey will close on January 2, 2023. You are invited to continue to share your thoughts with the MCDC via email too: movementcharter@wikimedia.org.

What’s next?

The Movement Strategy and Governance team will publish the final report with the summary of the feedback received in January 2023. It will be shared with the MCDC and the communities via different distribution channels.

After receiving the final report, the MCDC will review the suggestions and communicate the changes by providing an explanation on how and why suggestions were or were not adopted in the next versions of the drafts. There will be additional ways to engage with the Movement Charter content in 2023, including early feedback on a proposed ratification process and new drafts of different chapters in the second quarter of 2023.

We invite you to sign-up to the MCDC monthly newsletter, it will be delivered to the Talk page of your choice. Monthly updates are available on Meta to remain updated on the progress of the MCDC.

Interested people can still sign-up to become a Movement Charter Ambassador (MC Ambassador) to support their community. The MC Ambassadors Program grant program will restart accepting applications from both individuals and groups ahead of the next round of consultations in the second quarter of 2023.

We thank you for your participation, time and effort in helping to build the Charter for our Movement!

Upcoming vote on the revised Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct[рэдагаваць крыніцу]

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

Hello all,

In mid-January 2023, the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct will undergo a second community-wide ratification vote. This follows the March 2022 vote, which resulted in a majority of voters supporting the Enforcement Guidelines. During the vote, participants helped highlight important community concerns. The Board’s Community Affairs Committee requested that these areas of concern be reviewed.

The volunteer-led Revisions Committee worked hard reviewing community input and making changes. They updated areas of concern, such as training and affirmation requirements, privacy and transparency in the process, and readability and translatability of the document itself.

The revised Enforcement Guidelines can be viewed here, and a comparison of changes can be found here.

How to vote?

Beginning January 17, 2023, voting will be open. This page on Meta-wiki outlines information on how to vote using SecurePoll.

Who can vote?

The eligibility requirements for this vote are the same as for the Wikimedia Board of Trustees elections. See the voter information page for more details about voter eligibility. If you are an eligible voter, you can use your Wikimedia account to access the voting server.

What happens after the vote?

Votes will be scrutinized by an independent group of volunteers, and the results will be published on Wikimedia-l, the Movement Strategy Forum, Diff and on Meta-wiki. Voters will again be able to vote and share concerns they have about the guidelines. The Board of Trustees will look at the levels of support and concerns raised as they look at how the Enforcement Guidelines should be ratified or developed further.
