IMPORTANT: Admin activity review[canbia]
Hello. A policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc. ) was adopted by global community consensus in 2013. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis with no inactivity policy. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the admin activity review.
We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no logged actions for more than 2 years):
- CandalBot (administrator)
These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.
However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the stewards on Meta-Wiki so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki. Thanks, علاء (disc.) 17:41, 9 xen 2021 (CET)

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globally[canbia]
Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua
I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.
In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.
This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.
As far as I can see, Wikisource currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.
I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.
Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.

Proposta di regolamento itWikiCon[canbia]
con l'obiettivo di facilitare l'organizzazione delle future itWikiCon, un gruppo di organizzatori delle edizioni passate, con all'interno anche rappresentanti di WMI e WMCH, ha pensato di proporre questo regolamento: lo scopo è quello di riuscire ogni anno in tempi rapidi ad assegnare l'organizzazione di itWikiCon e ottenere, se necessario, il supporto economico dei chapter.
Nel caso in cui ci siano più proposte concomitanti, il procedimento servirebbe anche a decidere quale candidatura sostenere. Ovviamente è solo una bozza che proponiamo alla comunità di lingua italiana di commentare e approvare. L'obiettivo sarebbe avere un testo approvato entro fine aprile in modo da dare tempo a chi si volesse organizzarne una dal vivo per il 2022 (per il 2021 sarà necessariamente ancora on-line). --CristianNX, Ferdi2005, Ilario, Jaqen, Ruthven, Yiyi, Ysogo, Valerio Bozzolan, Superchilum (disc.) 22:48, 23 mar 2021 (CET)
Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultations[canbia]
Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2[canbia]
Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua
The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.
Drafting Committee: Call for applications[canbia]
The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.
To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.
2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translators[canbia]
From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.
To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.

Wikisource Satisfaction Survey 2021[canbia]
Apologies for writing in English. Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua

Take the survey in English, French, Spanish, Polish, Hindi or Punjabi. The deadline is 25th July 2021.
This survey will be conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement (English, Spanish, French, Polish, Hindi and Punjabi).
