Please help pick a name for the new Wikimedia wiki project.
This project will be a wiki where the community can work together on a
library of functions. The community can create new functions, read
about them, discuss them, and share them. Some of these functions will
be used to help create language-independent Wikipedia articles that
can be displayed in any language, as part of the Abstract Wikipedia
project. But functions will also be usable in many other situations.
There will be two rounds of voting, each followed by legal review of
candidates, with broad voting beginning on 29 September and 27
October. Our goal is to have a final project name selected on 8
December. If you would like to participate, then please learn more and
vote now at meta-wiki:

who knows the place where to find friendly wikipedians who are
For us at swwiki (and probably other smaller language versions too)
importing templates for infoboxes has become more and more challenging
as these have grown to be more and more complicated.
As we just started with a new batch of admins and look to consolidate
our newly won editors, we would be most happy to have a zoom session
with someone who can guide us thru the infobox template labyrinth.
Grateful for any advice

As you may already know, the Foundation has been developing a small team
focused on supporting and understanding content campaigns and contests (see
our page on Meta ). Campaigns and contests are an important part of the
movement’s organizing activities: inviting newcomers, creating content and
bringing energy to communities worldwide.
We are piloting monthly office hours to discuss how content campaigns have
been organized in the movement. The first office hour will be on September
23 2020 at 3:00 PM UTC <https://wikimedia.zoom.us/j/99382142655>.
The Campaigns Office hour is an opportunity to learn about how others have
organized content campaigns, new or emerging tools and tactics, and ask
questions about how campaigns have been implemented by other organizers.
The Office hour will be semi-structured, with community and WMF highlights
during the first half hour, and a Q&A period to learn more from the
speakers or from other organizers interested in content campaigns. This
month we will be highlighting:
What is the WMF Campaigns team? From the WMF Campaigns team
A Taxonomy of Knowledge Gaps  From WMF Research
What was learned from the WPWP Campaign? From the WPWP organizing team
Don’t miss our first edition of the campaign office hour: we want to learn
about your questions, experiences and new ideas for content campaigns in
your Wikimedia communities.
Looking forward to learning, discussing and sharing with you!
