I am happy to share with you that during 2020 we have launched a new
Community Resources platform. This project is the outcome of the effort and
collaboration between affiliates and allied organizations from the
“Recursos Comunitarios” was created to facilitate access and cooperation
between current and future Wikimedia communities. Its main objective is
sharing information and resources that we have been developing from our
contexts. So far, it includes presentations, tutorials, and communication &
media content, mainly in Spanish and Euskera.
You can visit the platform at https://recursoscomunitarios.wikimedia.org.ar/
Looking forward to comments or opinions!
PS: If you would like to create a similar project and need any help, please
write us an email at proyectos(a)wikimedia.org.ar.

Congratulations for this important initiative. This is an excellent example
of collaborative and effective effort that provides access to internal
knowledge developed within the movement, and brings it to the attention of
many. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Join the Research Team at the Wikimedia Foundation  for their monthly
Office hours on Tuesday, 2020-11-03 at 17:00-18:00 PM UTC (9am PT/6pm CET).
To participate, join the video-call via this Wikimedia-meet link . There
is no set agenda - feel free to add your item to the list of topics in the
etherpad  (You can do this after you join the meeting, too.), otherwise
you are welcome to also just hang out. More detailed information (e.g.
about how to attend) can be found here .
Through these office hours, we aim to make ourselves more available to
answer some of the research related questions that you as Wikimedia
volunteer editors, organizers, affiliates, staff, and researchers face in
your projects and initiatives. Some example cases we hope to be able to
support you in:
You have a specific research related question that you suspect you
should be able to answer with the publicly available data and you don’t
know how to find an answer for it, or you just need some more help with it.
For example, how can I compute the ratio of anonymous to registered editors
in my wiki?
You run into repetitive or very manual work as part of your Wikimedia
contributions and you wish to find out if there are ways to use machines to
improve your workflows. These types of conversations can sometimes be
harder to find an answer for during an office hour, however, discussing
them can help us understand your challenges better and we may find ways to
work with each other to support you in addressing it in the future.
You want to learn what the Research team at the Wikimedia Foundation
does and how we can potentially support you. Specifically for affiliates:
if you are interested in building relationships with the academic
institutions in your country, we would love to talk with you and learn
more. We have a series of programs that aim to expand the network of
Wikimedia researchers globally and we would love to collaborate with those
of you interested more closely in this space.
You want to talk with us about one of our existing programs .
Hope to see many of you,
Martin (WMF Research Team)
