Regional Call for South Asia - Oct. 30

Hi everyone. The time has come to put Movement Strategy into work and we need your help. We are inviting South Asian communities, Indian Wikimedians, and anyone else interested to join a region-focused conversation on Movement Strategy and implementation. Please join us on Friday Oct. 30 at 19.30 / 7:30 pm IST (Google Meet).

The purpose of the meeting is to get prepared for global conversations, to identify priorities for implementation in 2021, and to plan the following steps. There are 10 recommendations and they propose multiple 45 initiatives written over two years by many Wikimedians. It is now up to communities to decide which ones we should work on together in 2021, starting with local and regional conversations. Global meetings will take place later in November when we will discuss global coordination and resources. More information about the global events will be shared soon.

  • What is work you’re already doing that is aligned with Movement Strategy?
  • What are priorities for you in 2021?
  • What are things we should all work on globally?

We would not be able to grow and diversify as a movement if communities from South Asia are not meaningfully involved in implementing the recommendations. Join the conversation with your questions and ideas, or just come to say hi. See you on Friday October 30.

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

(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.

ಫೆಬ್ರವರಿ 1 ಮತ್ತು ಮಾರ್ಚ್ 14 ರ ನಡುವೆ ವಿಕಿಮೀಡಿಯಾ ಫೌಂಡೇಶನ್‌ನ ಆಡಳಿತ ಮಂಡಳಿಗೆ (ಬೋರ್ಡ್ ಆಫ್ ಟ್ರಸ್ಟೀಸ್) ಸಮುದಾಯದ ಸದಸ್ಯರ ಆಯ್ಕೆ ಪ್ರಕ್ರಿಯೆಗಳ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಪ್ರತಿಕ್ರಿಯೆ ನೀಡುವಂತೆ ಸಮುದಾಯದಲ್ಲಿ ವಿನಂತಿಸುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಕಳೆದ ಹತ್ತು ವರ್ಷಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ವಿಕಿಮೀಡಿಯಾ ಫೌಂಡೇಶನ್ ಮತ್ತು ಅದರ ಕೆಲಸ ಸುಮಾರು ಐದು ಪಟ್ಟು ಬೆಳೆದಿದ್ದರೂ, ಆಡಳಿತ ಮಂಡಳಿಯ ರಚನೆ ಮತ್ತು ಪ್ರಕ್ರಿಯೆಗಳು ಮೂಲತಃ ಹಳೆಯದಾಗಿಯೇ ಇದೆ. ಇಂದಿನ ಆಡಳಿತ ಮಂಡಳಿಯ ವಿನ್ಯಾಸಗೊಳಿಸದಲ್ಲಿ, ನಮಗೆ ಸಾಮರ್ಥ್ಯ, ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ಷಮತೆ ಮತ್ತು ಕೆಲಸದಲ್ಲಿ ವೈವಿಧ್ಯತೆಯ ಪ್ರಾತಿನಿಧ್ಯದ ಕೊರತೆಯಿದೆ. ವೈಯಕ್ತಿಕ ಸ್ವಯಂಸೇವಕ ಮತ್ತು ಅಂಗ ಸ್ಥಾನಗಳನ್ನು ಆಯ್ಕೆ ಮಾಡುವ ನಮ್ಮ ಪ್ರಸ್ತುತ ಪ್ರಕ್ರಿಯೆಗಳು ಕೆಲವು ಮಿತಿಗಳನ್ನು ಹೊಂದಿವೆ. ಆಡಳಿತ ಮಂಡಳಿಯ ಸದಸ್ಯರಾಗಿ ಸೇವೆ ಸಲ್ಲಿಸುವಲ್ಲಿ ಅವರ ಕೌಶಲ್ಯ ಮತ್ತು ಅನುಭವ ಎಷ್ಟು ಪ್ರಸ್ತುತವಾಗಬಹುದು, ಅಥವಾ ಮಂಡಳಿಯು ಅದರ ನಿರ್ದಿಷ್ಟ ಜವಾಬ್ದಾರಿಗಳನ್ನು ನಿರ್ವಹಿಸುವ ಸಾಮರ್ಥ್ಯಕ್ಕೆ ಕೊಡುಗೆ ನೀಡುವುದರ ಹೊರತಾಗಿಯೂ, ನೇರ ಚುನಾವಣೆಗಳು ಪ್ರಮುಖ ಭಾಷಾ ಸಮುದಾಯಗಳ ಅಭ್ಯರ್ಥಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಅನುಕೂಲಕರವಾಗಿದೆ. ಪ್ರಸ್ತುತ ಪ್ರಕ್ರಿಯೆಗಳು ಉತ್ತರ ಅಮೆರಿಕಾ ಮತ್ತು ಪಶ್ಚಿಮ ಯುರೋಪಿನ ಸ್ವಯಂಸೇವಕರಿಗೆ ಅನುಕೂಲಕರವಾಗಿರುವಂತೆ ತೋರಿವೆ. ವಾಸ್ತವವಾಗಿ, ಹದಿನೈದು ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಇತಿಹಾಸದಲ್ಲಿ ದಕ್ಷಿಣ ಏಷ್ಯಾದಿಂದ ಆಡಳಿತ ಮಂಡಳಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಸೇವೆ ಸಲ್ಲಿಸಿದ ಒಬ್ಬ ಸದಸ್ಯರು ಮಾತ್ರ ಇದ್ದರು.

ಮುಂಬರುವ ತಿಂಗಳುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ, ನಾವು ಮೂರು ಸಮುದಾಯ ಸ್ಥಾನಗಳನ್ನು ನವೀಕರಿಸಬೇಕು ಮತ್ತು ಇನ್ನೂ ಮೂರು ಸಮುದಾಯದ ಸದಸ್ಯರನ್ನು ಹೊಸ ಸ್ಥಾನಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ನೇಮಿಸಬೇಕಾಗಿದೆ. ನಮ್ಮ ಆಂದೋಲನವನ್ನು ಪ್ರತಿನಿಧಿಸುವ ಅಭ್ಯರ್ಥಿಗಳನ್ನು ಉತ್ತೇಜಿಸಲು ಮತ್ತು ಆಯ್ಕೆ ಮಾಡಲು ನಾವೆಲ್ಲರೂ ಯಾವ ಪ್ರಕ್ರಿಯೆಗಳನ್ನು ಸಹಯೋಗದಿಂದ ವಿನ್ಯಾಸಗೊಳಿಸಬಹುದು ಮತ್ತು ಅನುಭವ, ಕೌಶಲ್ಯ ಮತ್ತು ಟ್ರಸ್ಟಿಗಳಾಗಿ ಕಾರ್ಯನಿರ್ವಹಿಸಲು ಒಳನೋಟದೊಂದಿಗೆ ಸಿದ್ಧರಾಗಿರುವುದನ್ನು ನೋಡುವುದು ಈ ಪ್ರತಿಕ್ರಿಯೆಯ ಕರೆ. ಈ ನಿಟ್ಟಿನಲ್ಲಿ, ಉದ್ದೇಶಿತ ವಿಚಾರಗಳನ್ನು ಚರ್ಚಿಸಲು ಮತ್ತು ನಮ್ಮ ಆಲೋಚನೆಗಳನ್ನು ಹಂಚಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲು, ಪ್ರತಿಕ್ರಿಯೆ ನೀಡಲು ಮತ್ತು ಪ್ರಕ್ರಿಯೆಗೆ ಕೊಡುಗೆ ನೀಡಲು ಸಮುದಾಯ ಚರ್ಚೆ ನಡೆಸುವುದು ಒಳ್ಳೆಯದು.

ಮುಂದಿನ ವಾರದಲ್ಲಿ ಹೆಚ್ಚಿನ ಜನರಿಗೆ ಅನುಕೂಲಕರವಾಗುವ ಸಮಯವನ್ನು ಆಯ್ಕೆ ಮಾಡಲು ನಾನು ಸಮೀಕ್ಷೆಯನ್ನು ರಚಿಸಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ದಯವಿಟ್ಟು ನಿಮ್ಮ ಲಭ್ಯತೆಯನ್ನು https://doodle.com/poll/grggpcn8pn2s98pg?utm_source=poll&utm_medium=link ನಲ್ಲಿ ಭರ್ತಿ ಮಾಡಿ. ನೀವು ಯಾವುದೇ ಪ್ರಶ್ನೆಗಳನ್ನು ಹೊಂದಿದ್ದರೆ ದಯವಿಟ್ಟು ನನ್ನನ್ನು ಸಂಪರ್ಕಿಸಿ.

Please note that you do not need any technical experience to attend the workshop, only some experience contributing to Wikimedia projects is enough.

Details of the workshop are as follows:

Please sign-up on the registration page at https://w.wiki/yYg.

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

Please help translate to your language

Hello everyone,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Best regards,
