Hello everyone - I am forwarding the below from Karen on my team. If you
are interested please apply!
Please accept my apologies if you are receiving this a number of times
today. We have sent it out to multiple mailing lists in order to reach as
many community members as possible. Please feel free to forward this to any
other community mailing lists you believe are relevant.
It's coming close to time for annual appointments of community members to
serve on the Ombudsman Commission (OC). This commission works on all
Wikimedia projects to investigate complaints about violations of the
mediate between the complaining party and the individual whose work is
being investigated. They may also assist the General Counsel, the Executive
Director or the Board of Trustees in investigations of these issues. For
more on their duties and roles, see
This is a call for community members interested in volunteering for
appointment to this commission. Volunteers serving in this role should be
experienced Wikimedians, active on any project, who have previously used
the CheckUser tool OR who have the technical ability to understand the
CheckUser tool and the willingness to learn it. They are expected to be
able to engage neutrally in investigating these concerns and to know when
to recuse when other roles and relationships may cause conflict.
Commissioners are required to identify to the Wikimedia Foundation and must
be willing to comply with the appropriate Wikimedia Foundation board
policies (such as the access to non-public data policy and the privacy
policy). This is a position that requires a high degree of discretion
If you are interested in serving on this commission, please write me (
kbrown(a)wikimedia.org) an email off-list to detail your experience on the
projects, your thoughts on the commission and what you hope to bring to the
role. The commission typically consists of ten members; all applications
are appreciated and will be carefully considered. The deadline for
applications is the end of day on 31 December, 2019.
Please feel free to pass this invitation along to any users who you think
may be qualified and interested.

Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] Fundraising Test - Monday 30th Sept
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
As I mentioned back in June  on this mailing we are planning to return
to fundraising in India in 2020. In August  we ran our first ever
systems test to test out our infrastructure. Based on what we learned
during that test, tomorrow on Monday 30, we will be running another brief
three hour test to further test our payments infrastructure.
* If you need to report a bug or technical issue, please [
create a phabricator ticket].
* If you see a donor on a talk page, OTRS or social media having
difficulties in donating, please refer them to donate(a)wikimedia.org.
* If you have specific ideas to share, please feel invited to add them to
fundraising ideas page].
We have already had lots of feedback from CIS, focus groups, and community
members but you can also send feedback regarding the fundraising campaign
directly to me via my email address. Your feedback will definitely factor
into our campaign for next year. Many Thanks

In light of the movement’s increased focus on diversity and becoming
essential infrastructure for diverse human knowledge, the Community
Programs team at the WMF has begun investigating the use of content
campaigns in the movement. Campaigns are some of the most reliable ways to
create new content and introduce new contributors to the movement, but we
have a lot of questions like:
What are the different steps that our community organizers have to go
through in order to organize campaigns and contests such as Wiki Loves
Monuments, Wikipedia Asian Month, #1lib1ref Wikidata Menu Challenge etc.?
What are the tools that are being used in organizing these campaigns and
contests such as PetScan, Listeria, CitationHunt, Fountain, wscontest tool,
Outreach Dashboard etc.?
During some initial research into the space, we have developed a draft
that highlights key stages in organizing any campaign/contest and the
documentation that we could find supporting those stages.
Now, we need your help us improve the framework so that we can help less
experienced organizers understand how to better support content campaigns.
Please join us in discussing the framework and provide feedback on the talk
or connect with us on the discuss forum.
If you want to reach out directly, feel free to email us at
