साहित्यिक नामविश्वासाठी लघुरुप[संपादन]

सध्या साहित्यिक विषयक लेखापाशी पोहोचण्यासाठी 'साहित्यिक' हा शब्द पूर्ण टंकावा लागतो जसे साहित्यिक:साहित्यिकाचे नाव. मराठी विकिस्रोत प्रकल्पाने साहित्यिक शब्दासाठी 'सा' अक्षर अथवा 'ले' (लेखक/लेखिकाचे अद्याक्षर) हे अक्षर लघुरुप म्हणून स्विकारल्यास केवळ सा: अथवा केवळ ले: हे अक्षर आणि साहित्यिकाचे नाव टंकल्यास संबंधीत साहित्यिकापर्यंत पोहोचता येईल.


सा: अथवा ले: पैकी कोणते स्विकारावे या बद्दल आपापले ओपीनियन मांडण्याची विनंती आहे.

मराठी विकिपीडिया, विकिस्रोत व विक्शनरी प्रकल्पांवर चर्चासत्र[संपादन]

मराठी विकिपीडिया, विकिसोर्स व विक्शनरी हे लोकसहभागातून ज्ञान निर्मितीचे उपक्रम आहेत. अनेकांनी विधायक सहभाग घेतल्यास, एकमेकांशी सौजन्याने वागल्यास व चुका दुरुस्त करत राहिल्यास किती उत्तम दर्जाची विश्वसनीय माहिती संकलित होऊ शकते ह्याचे इंग्रजी, जर्मन, जपानी, कोरियन असे अनेक विकिपीडिया हे उत्तम उदाहरण आहेत. भारतीय लोक फेसबुक, व्हॉटसअप, ट्विटर इ. सोशल मिडिया खूप हाताळतात, पण २१ भारतीय भाषांत हा प्रकल्प सुरु झाला असूनही त्यांनी विकिपीडिया, विकिसोर्स व विक्शनरीकडे दुर्लक्ष केलेले आहे.बहुभाषीय भारतात तर ह्या प्रकल्पाचा प्रभावी विस्तार करणे खूपच समयोचित आहे.

हे उद्दिष्ट समोर ठेवून विविध विषयातील ज्ञान आणि विश्वसनीय माहिती मराठीतून सर्व समाजाला सहजपणे व मुक्तपणे उपलब्ध व्हावी यासाठी मराठी विकिपीडिया, विकिसोर्स व विक्शनरी या प्रकल्पांमध्ये सुव्यवस्थित योजना बनवून काम करण्याची गरज आहे. यासाठी रावत नेचर अकॅडमी , गोखले राज्यशास्त्र व अर्थशास्त्र संस्था यांनी पुढाकार घेतला आहे. तांत्रिक सहकार्य द सेंटर फॉर इंटरनेट अँड सोसायटी करत आहे. या विषयावर प्रात्यक्षिकांसह चर्चासत्र गोखले संस्थेमधील सेमिनार हॉलमध्ये २९ एप्रिल २०१७ रोजी दुपारी ३ ते ६ या वेळेत आयोजित करण्यात आले आहे. सर्वांना सदर निमंत्रण.

आपणा सर्वांना पुस्तक वाचनाचा आनंद घेता घेता प्रूफ रीडिंग व काही संपादने करून विकिस्रोतवर या अभियानात १ मे ते १० मे या कालावधीत सामील होण्यासाठी आवाहन करत आहे. आपली बरीच पुस्तके चांगली स्कॅन झालेली असल्याने उत्तम ओसीआर झाले आहे. त्यामुळे तसे फार काम नाही. फक्त बारकाईने एकदा पाहून काही दुरुस्त्या व थोडे फार format करावे लागेल. यासाठी मदत घेता येईल. तरी अवश्य नावे नोंदवा आणि पुस्तके निवडा.

नमस्कार. मुद्रितशोधन अभियानाचा कालावधी १ ते १० मे असा ठरवण्यात आलेला आहे. ३ मे पर्यंत देशात लॉक डाऊन आहे, पण त्यानंतर महाराष्ट्रातील काही भागात लॉक डाऊन शिथील होण्याची शक्यता आहे, असे वाटते. या पार्श्वभूमीवर १ ते १० मे पेक्षा ३ मेपर्यंत सर्वाना या अभियानात काम करण्यासाठी जास्त वेळ देणे शक्य आहे, असे काही इच्छुक लोकांशी बोलल्यावर लक्षात आले आहे. तर हा कालावधी अलीकडे आणता येईल का? आणि मराठी विकीस्रोतासाठी हे अभियान लगेचच सुरू करता येईल का? यावर विचार व्हावा. इतर सदस्यांनीसुद्धा याबाबत आपले मत मांडावे,अशी विनंती.

[Small wiki toolkits] Understanding the technical challenges[संपादन]

Greetings, hope this message finds you all in the best of your health, and you are staying safe amid the ongoing crisis.

Firstly, to give you context, Small wiki toolkits (SWT) is an initiative to support small wiki communities, to learn and share technical and semi-technical skills to support, maintain, and grow. In India, a series of workshops were conducted last year, and they received good response. They are being continued this year, and the first session is: Understanding the technical challenges of wikis (by Birgit): Brainstorming about technical challenges faced by contributors contributing to language projects related to South Asia. The session is on 24 January 2021, at 18:00 to 19:30 (India time), 18:15 to 19:45 (Nepal time), and 18:30 to 20:00 pm (Bangladesh time).

You can register yourself by visiting this page! This discussion will be crucial to decide topics for future workshops. Community members are also welcome to suggest topics for future workshops anytime at https://w.wiki/t8Q. If you have any questions, please contact us on the talk page here.

Call for feedback: WMF Community Board seats & Office hours tomorrow[संपादन]

(sorry for posting in English)

Dear Wikimedians,

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. Below you will find the problem statement and various ideas from the Board to address it. We are offering multiple channels for questions and feedback. With the help of a team of community facilitators, we are organizing multiple conversations with multiple groups in multiple languages.

During this call for feedback we publish weekly reports and we draft the final report that will be delivered to the Board. With the help of this report, the Board will approve the next steps to organize the selection of six community seats in the upcoming months. Three of these seats are due for renewal and three are new, recently approved.

Participate in this call for feedback and help us form a more diverse and better performing Board of Trustees!

Problems: While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. This problem was identified in the Board’s 2019 governance review, along with recommendations for how to address it.

To solve the problem of capacity, we have agreed to increase the Board size to a maximum of 16 trustees (it was 10). Regarding performance and diversity, we have approved criteria to evaluate new Board candidates. What is missing is a process to promote community candidates that represent the diversity of our movement and have the skills and experience to perform well on the Board of a complex global organization.

Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. Meanwhile, our movement has grown larger and more complex, our technical and strategic needs have increased, and we have new and more difficult policy challenges around the globe. As well, our Movement Strategy recommendations urge us to increase our diversity and promote perspectives from other regions and other social backgrounds.

In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. What process can we all design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees?

Ideas: The Board has discussed several ideas to overcome the problems mentioned above. Some of these ideas could be taken and combined, and some discarded. Other ideas coming from the call for feedback could be considered as well. The ideas are:

  • Ranked voting system. Complete the move to a single transferable vote system, already used to appoint affiliate-selected seats, which is designed to best capture voters’ preferences.
  • Quotas. Explore the possibility of introducing quotas to ensure certain types of diversity in the Board (details about these quotas to be discussed in this call for feedback).
  • Call for types of skills and experiences. When the Board makes a new call for candidates, they would specify types of skills and experiences especially sought.
  • Vetting of candidates. Potential candidates would be assessed using the Trustee Evaluation Form and would be confirmed or not as eligible candidates.
  • Board-delegated selection committee. The community would nominate candidates that this committee would assess and rank using the Trustee Evaluation Form. This committee would have community elected members and Board appointed members.
  • Community-elected selection committee. The community would directly elect the committee members. The committee would assess and rank candidates using the Trustee Evaluation Form.
  • Election of confirmed candidates. The community would vote for community nominated candidates that have been assessed and ranked using the Trustee Evaluation Form. The Board would appoint the most voted candidates.
  • Direct appointment of confirmed candidates. After the selection committee produces a ranked list of community nominated candidates, the Board would appoint the top-ranked candidates directly.

Call for feedback: The call for feedback runs from February 1 until the end of March 14. We are looking for a broad representation of opinions. We are interested in the reasoning and the feelings behind your opinions. In a conversation like this one, details are important. We want to support good conversations where everyone can share and learn from others. We want to hear from those who understand Wikimedia governance well and are already active in movement conversations. We also want to hear from people who do not usually contribute to discussions. Especially those who are active in their own roles, topics, languages or regions, but usually not in, say, a call for feedback on Meta.

You can participate by joining the Telegram chat group, and giving feedback on any of the talk pages on Meta-Wiki. We are welcoming the organisation of conversations in any language and in any channel. If you want us to organize a conversation or a meeting for your wiki project or your affiliate, please write to me. I will also reach out to communities and affiliates to soon have focused group discussions.

An office hour is also happening tomorrow at 12 pm (UTC) to discuss this topic. Access link will be available 15 minutes before the scheduled time (please watch the office hour page for the link, and I will also share on mailing lists). In case you are not able to make it, please don't worry, there will be more discussions and meetings in the next few weeks.

Research Needs Assessment for Indian Language Wikimedia (ILW) Projects[संपादन]

Dear All,

The Access to Knowledge (A2K) team at CIS has been engaged with work on research on Indian language Wikimedia projects as part of the APG since 2019. This year, following up on our learnings from work so far, we are undertaking a needs assessment exercise to understand a) the awareness about research within Indian language Wikimedia communities, and identify existing projects if any, and b) to gather community inputs on knowledge gaps and priority areas of focus, and the role of research in addressing the same.

We would therefore request interested community members to respond to the needs assessment questionnaire here:

Wikimedia Foundation Community Board seats: Call for feedback meeting[संपादन]

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes[1] between February 1 and March 14. While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. As a matter of fact, there had only been one member who served on the Board, from South Asia, in more than fifteen years of history.

In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. This call for feedback is to see what processes can we all collaboratively design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees? In this regard, it would be good to have a community discussion to discuss the proposed ideas and share our thoughts, give feedback and contribute to the process. To discuss this, you are invited to a community meeting that is being organized on March 12 from 8 pm to 10 pm, and the meeting link to join is https://meet.google.com/umc-attq-kdt. You can add this meeting to your Google Calendar by clicking here[2]. Please ping me if you have any questions. Thank you, --KCVelaga (WMF) (चर्चा) १६:२९, ८ मार्च २०२१ (IST)[reply]

WMF Community Board seats: Upcoming panel discussions[संपादन]

As a result of the first three weeks of the call for feedback on WMF Community Board seats, three topics turned out to be the focus of the discussion. Additionally, a new idea has been introduced by a community member recently: Candidates resources. We would like to pursue these focus topics and the new idea appropriately, discussing them in depth and collecting new ideas and fresh approaches by running four panels in the next week. Every panel includes four members from the movement covering many regions, backgrounds and experiences, along with a trustee of the Board. Every panel will last 45 minutes, followed by a 45-minute open mic discussion, where everyone’s free to ask questions or to contribute to the further development of the panel's topics.

To counter spamming, the meeting link will be updated on the Meta-Wiki pages and also on the Telegram announcements channel, 15 minutes before the official start.

Call for Election Volunteers: 2021 WMF Board elections[संपादन]

Hello all,

Based on an extensive call for feedback earlier this year, the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees announced the plan for the 2021 Board elections. Apart from improving the technicalities of the process, the Board is also keen on improving active participation from communities in the election process. During the last elections, Voter turnout in prior elections was about 10% globally. It was better in communities with volunteer election support. Some of those communities reached over 20% voter turnout. We know we can get more voters to help assess and promote the best candidates, but to do that, we need your help.

We are looking for volunteers to serve as Election Volunteers. Election Volunteers should have a good understanding of their communities. The facilitation team sees Election Volunteers as doing the following:

  • Promote the election and related calls to action in community channels.
  • With the support from facilitators, organize discussions about the election in their communities.
  • Translate “a few” messages for their communities

Check out more details about Election Volunteers and add your name next to the community you will support in this table. We aim to have at least one Election Volunteer, even better if there are two or more sharing the work. If you have any queries, please ping me under this message or email me. Regards, KCVelaga (WMF) १०:५१, १२ मे २०२१ (IST)[reply]

Candidates from South Asia for 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board Elections[संपादन]

Dear Wikimedians,

As you may be aware, the Wikimedia Foundation has started elections for community seats on the Board of Trustees. While previously there were three community seats on the Board, with the expansion of the Board to sixteen seats last year, community seats have been increased to eight, four of which are up for election this year.

In the last fifteen years of the Board's history, there were only a few candidates from the South Asian region who participated in the elections, and hardly anyone from the community had a chance to serve on the Board. While there are several reasons for this, this time, the Board and WMF are very keen on encouraging and providing support to potential candidates from historically underrepresented regions. This is a good chance to change the historical problem of representation from the South Asian region in high-level governance structures.

Ten days after the call for candidates began, there aren't any candidates from South Asia yet, there are still 10 days left! I would like to ask community members to encourage other community members, whom you think would be potential candidates for the Board. While the final decision is completely up to the person, it can be helpful to make sure that they are aware of the election and the call for candidates.

Let me know if you need any information or support.

Thank you, KCVelaga (WMF) १५:३३, १९ जून २०२१ (IST)[reply]

2021 WMF Board election postponed until August 18th[संपादन]

Hello all,

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. For information on the technical issues, you can see the Phabricator ticket.

We are truly sorry for this delay and hope that we will get back on schedule on August 18th. We are in touch with the Elections Committee and the candidates to coordinate the next steps. We will update the Board election Talk page and Telegram channel as we know more.

Thanks for your patience, KCVelaga (WMF), ०९:१९, ३ ऑगस्ट २०२१ (IST)[reply]

सस्नेह नमस्कार,
आपणा सर्वांना पुस्तक वाचनाचा आनंद घेता घेता प्रूफ रीडिंग व काही संपादने करून विकिस्रोतवर या अभियानात १५-३१ ऑगस्ट २०२१ या कालावधीत सामील होण्यासाठी आवाहन करत आहे. मे २०२० मध्ये झालेल्या अभियानात मराठी समूहाने देशात सर्वोत्तम कामगिरी केली होती. यावेळी पण सदस्य चांगले योगदान देतील अशी खात्री आहे. आपली बरीच पुस्तके चांगली स्कॅन झालेली असल्याने उत्तम ओसीआर झाले आहे. त्यामुळे तसे फार काम नाही. फक्त बारकाईने एकदा पाहून काही दुरुस्त्या व थोडे फार format करावे लागेल. यासाठी मदत घेता येईल. तरी अवश्य नावे नोंदवा आणि पुस्तके निवडा.

धन्यवाद! सुबोध कुलकर्णी (चर्चा) ११:५४, ११ ऑगस्ट २०२१ (IST)[reply]

Results of 2021 Wikimedia Foundation elections[संपादन]

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2021 Board election. The Elections Committee has reviewed the votes of the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election, organized to select four new trustees. A record 6,873 people from across 214 projects cast their valid votes. The following four candidates received the most support:

  • Rosie Stephenson-Goodknight
  • Victoria Doronina
  • Dariusz Jemielniak
  • Lorenzo Losa

While these candidates have been ranked through the community vote, they are not yet appointed to the Board of Trustees. They still need to pass a successful background check and meet the qualifications outlined in the Bylaws. The Board has set a tentative date to appoint new trustees at the end of this month.

Universal Code of Conduct EDGR conversation hour for South Asia[संपादन]

Dear Wikimedians,

As you may already know, the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a baseline of behaviour for collaboration on Wikimedia projects worldwide. Communities may add to this to develop policies that take account of local and cultural context while maintaining the criteria listed here as a minimum standard. The Wikimedia Foundation Board has ratified the policy in December 2020.

The current round of conversations is around how the Universal Code of Conduct should be enforced across different Wikimedia platforms and spaces. This will include training of community members to address harassment, development of technical tools to report harassment, and different levels of handling UCoC violations, among other key areas.

The conversation hour is an opportunity for community members from South Asia to discuss and provide their feedback, which will be passed on to the drafting committee. The details of the conversation hour are as follows:

You can also attend the global round table sessions hosted on 18 September - more details can be found on this page. MediaWiki message delivery (चर्चा) १६:१७, १० सप्टेंबर २०२१ (IST)[reply]
