Hello! Thank you very much for the translation into Arabic. Do you maybe know of anyone who could be particularly interested in attending the meeting? If yes, could you let them know?

SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Would you be able to add the (few) missing translations of this message? When you've finished, I'll post it on الميدان. Thanks!

By the way, which sub-page of الميدان would you recommend? Perhaps ويكيبيديا:الميدان/منوعات?

@SGrabarczuk (WMF) I completed the translation and review the rest, and for  the sub-page of الميدان , I recommend ويكيبيديا:الميدان/منوعات

Thank you! I've posted the message. If you know anyone who could be interested in seeing these changes, feel free to encourage them to share their support, ask questions, encourage others.

I posted a message here to provide more participation of the community

Hello! @SGrabarczuk (WMF) can you deploy these Improvements in Wikisource Arabic Cordially

SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Gladly! First, we need to have the Arabic Wikisource community consensus. I will post the same message I posted on Wikipedia, and you would only check if I replaced "Wikipedia" with "Wikisource" correctly. Does that sound OK?

SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Thank you for beginning the prototype testing translation. Based on the answers we've got so far, we've decided to add one more question. Could you translate it as well? You can also answer the questions whenever you have time, even before we set up the banners for the community.

[WMF Board of Trustees - Call for feedback: Community Board seats] Meetings with MediaWiki and Wikitech communities

1
MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes 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. 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. 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, two rounds of feedback meetings are being hosted to collect feedback from the technical communities in Wikimedia. Two rounds are being hosted with the same agenda, to accomodate people from various time zones across the globe. We will be discussing ideas proposed by the Board and the community to address the above mentioned problems. Please sign-up according to whatever is most comfortable to you. You are welcome to participate in both as well!

Also, please share this with other volunteers who might be interested in this. Let me know if you have any questions. KCVelaga (WMF), 14:38, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
