Review of initial updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[edit]

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. Message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

The Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. For 15 years, Wikimedians have worked together to build the largest free knowledge resource in human history. During this time, we've grown from a small group of editors to a diverse network of editors, developers, affiliates, readers, donors, and partners. Today, we are more than a group of websites. We are a movement rooted in values and a powerful vision: all knowledge for all people. As a movement, we have an opportunity to decide where we go from here.

This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve. We hope to design an inclusive process that makes space for everyone: editors, community leaders, affiliates, developers, readers, donors, technology platforms, institutional partners, and people we have yet to reach. There will be multiple ways to participate including on-wiki, in private spaces, and in-person meetings. You are warmly invited to join and make your voice heard.

The immediate goal is to have a strategic direction by Wikimania 2017 to help frame a discussion on how we work together toward that strategic direction.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Beginning with this message, monthly reviews of these updates will be sent to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Musée Saint-Raymond[edit]

It was good to meet you a few weeks ago at the museum edithon event. I translated most of the french version into the enwiki version of the article w:Musée Saint-Raymond and maybe you would give it a quick read to see what you think and if there any glaring translation errors. I made some notes on the talk page with some possible additional source links that a french reader might use as I would prefer to have more citations. Thanks Ww2censor (talk) 22:12, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

@Ww2censor: Hi! It was really great to talk with you the other day. I'll be in Berlin for the next few days, and i'm not sure I'll have time to proofread the article before monday. I'm pinging Léna who was with us too during the editathon. --PierreSelim (talk) 04:52, 30 March 2017 (UTC)
Ah, Berlin, I have not been there for many years. I must go there sometime soon and a good Irish friend of mine lives there most of the time. So do you speak German too? Indeed I had some nice conversations and it was just luck I was staying in Toulouse on the Friday night as coming in especially is rather a trip; 100 km each way. There is no hurry proofreading but thanks for asking someone else to look at it. It is my first such fr-en translation though I have been working for several years on a major revision of one translated de-en article and never seem to get back to it because it needs so many sources and research. Have a great weekend there. Ww2censor (talk) 09:14, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2016 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear PierreSelim,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2016 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eleventh edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2016) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1475 candidate images. There are 58 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category.

In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 20 April 2017, 23:59:59 UTC.

Thanks,
