Hello Pigsonthewing, and welcome to the Outreach Wiki! Our mission is to recruit and support new Wikimedians and to build strong relationships with cultural and educational institutions. Want to help? Here's some stuff you can do:
- Volunteer to join the outreach team so we know that we're allowed to ask you for help ;-)
- Indicate your languages and skills on your user page so we know how you can best help!
- Review the bookshelf materials, help with localization and add your feedback
- Learn about our work with cultural institutions and join ongoing conversations
- Join the Account Creation Improvement Project, aiming to increase editing by new users
- Start a student club at your university
See the sidebar for some other projects you can get involved in.
The Village pump is a great place to ask questions, but don't hesitate to leave me a note if I can help. Thanks for stopping by – hope you like the place and decide to stay! Érico msg 01:58, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
This Month in GLAM in the UKEdit
Hello Pigsonthewing, Viewing the contents page of the newsletter this month in GLAM I notice there is no UK section yet. I thought you are from that area and maybe you can write this time as well about the GLAM related things happening in the UK in the past month (or perhaps know who will). I hope the UK can be written about too. Thanks! Greetings - Romaine (talk) 16:33, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
Re: first time that a Wiki[p|m]edian in Residence has worked with Wikiquote?Edit
Sorry, you're several months late for the record. :P --Nemo 13:07, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
GLAM Newsletter QuestionEdit
Hi Andy - I am looking to contribute an article/update to the GLAM Newsletter. Sandra recommended I add my contribution under the Wikidata section since my update is all about Wiki Education's new Wikidata program. When I go to "contribute" the link leads me back to the general GLAM Newsletter information page. Would you be able to recommend how I should proceed? You can see my draft here if it's easier for you to copy and paste it somewhere. I realize it's short notice, but we're hoping we can include it in this month's newsletter. Thanks! Will (Wiki Ed) (talk) 16:55, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
- I've added it to the newsletter as a "Special Story", with pointers to it from both the Wikidata report and the USA report. That should bring more eyeballs to it. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy 17:38, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Special story about Wikidata-CommonsEdit
Hi Andy, You might want to link the upcoming Wikidata report to this special story: GLAM/Newsletter/May 2020/Contents/Special story. Greetings - Romaine (talk) 18:48, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
How we will see unregistered usersEdit
You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.
When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.
Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.
If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.
We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.
Thank you. /Johan (WMF)
