Central notifications

I just wanted to double check that someone was on top of the central notification/banner for the start of the competition? If so which wikis is it planned for?

Also when I'm checking is there a planned central notification message going out to participants at the end of the competition (via their commons talk pages). Is there also something similar planned for participants of last year prior to the start?

I'm mainly checking to make sure such messages don't clash with ones we might otherwise set up locally.

Cheers,
André

Re: WikiLovesMonuments Digest, Vol 44, Issue 9

On the form, why does the field "Contact Person Name" have to be a number? Is it a mistake?

Hi everyone,

In order to move forward with WLM this year and get everything working
before September 1, we would like to have some basic data about the
participants.

Please fill in the following form as quickly as possible:


https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1cEZzYiH1dj8AiSSCpnZqxwkll7l-wlkW2suFaRviOlg/viewform

FW: WLM Participants' Survey: Summary analysis of contact data

Dear all,

 

I’m re-sending this e-mail as a reminder. – Last February I sent out contact information of WLM participants who would like to be re-contacted to the individual chapters/national contest organizers in separate Excel files.

 

Please let me know in case this information hasn’t made it to the right person or if you have lost the message/file. – In this case I can easily re-send it to you, as has just happened for the Romanian team.

 

Of course, I would also be happy about your feedback as to whether this contact data has actually helped you to get in touch with new volunteers and to enroll them for some of your activities.

 

Cheers,

Beat

Subject: WLM Participants' Survey: Summary analysis of contact data

 

Dear all,

 

Please find enclosed some summary analyses of the contact information that was collected as part of the WLM participants‘ survey (N = 1687):

 

The highlights:

 

-       More than 90% of respondents would like to receive future announcements about WLM and other photo contests

 

-       Ca. 500 respondents (39%) would like to participate in the organization of photo contests!

 

-       Ca. 500 respondents (39%) would like to participate in GLAM cooperation projects

 

-       Ca. 350 respondents (27%) are interested in meeting other Wikipedians/Wikimedians

 

-       Ca. 300 respondents (24%) are interested in learning how to edit Wikipedia or to contribute to Wikimedia Commons

 

-       Ca. 100 respondents (8%) are familiar with Wikipedia/Wikimedia Commons and would like to teach others how to contribute

 

 

Most of them left us their contact details (either e-mail address or username). I have forwarded the file with the contact details to Lodewijk. The idea is that the international team splits the file up into one file per country that can be shared with the local WLM organizers or the local chapter.

 

The numbers are quite certainly not representative for all the contest participants; I would expect the self-selection bias to be rather high for this question (i.e. those interested in getting more closely involved are probably more likely to participate in the survey than the others).

 

In the attachment you will also find an analysis for each country.

 

N.B. For reasons of data protection, the contact information is treated separately from the rest of the data.

 

Kind regards,

Beat

[Service] Changing list policy to reject non-members messages

vHi all,

[TL;DR]
we are changing this list [wikilovemonuments-l] policy from moderation
to rejection for messages from non-members of the list.
[/TL;DR]

This list, which is moderated by Lodewijk and myself, gets every day a
huge amount of spam and undesired messages, circa 20 messages per
hour. We have tried in the last months to implement some filters to
solve the problem with poor results.

Since it is impossible for us to keep moderating this huge quantity of
messages we have decided to change the policy of the list so that
messages sent by non members will be automatically rejected. At the
moment the messages are accumulated in the moderation queue.

Members of this list (whose subscription and archives are - and will
remain - open) should not experience any difference. Non-members of
the list sending messages here will need to sign up to the list before
being able to post.

Cheers,

Cristian

Software needs

Hi everyone,

I'm on the Multimedia team at the WMF, and we were wondering if there are specific bugfixes or critical features that would be needed in preparation for WLM.

Something I know of is the cached template issue in UploadWizard campaign banners: https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64685 which I would like to get fixed before WLM. If there's anything else that's critical, please let us know, it will help us prioritize our workload.

Wikipedia Summer of Monuments: U.S.A. photo contest and upload drive

Dear Wiki Loves Monuments worldwide community,

We here in the United States have expanded the photo contest this year into a three-month "Summer of Monuments". Our special goal is outreach in the Southern U.S. states which currently have fewer historic places represented on Wikimedia Commons. There are some prizes for the best photographs, and for the institution that contributes the best collection.

Individual photographers from around the country are excited about Summer of Monuments and have already contributed several hundred photos. You can see many of them on Commons.

So far we've met with enthusiastic responses from libraries, archives, historical societies, and historical preservation groups in the South. We are waiting to see what kind of collections can actually be uploaded, and hoping that this project serves as a springboard for larger institutional donations.

We have a page on Wikimedia Commons which can also be accessed from SummerOfMonuments.org. Please let me know your thoughts, comments, concerns, questions, suggestions, or exclamations about the project.

All the best,

Leo Zimmermann
