Overview #2 of updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[usba ang wikitext]

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

As we mentioned last month, the Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Each month, we are sending overviews of these updates to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a overview of the updates that have been sent since our message last month:

More information about the movement strategy is available on the Meta-Wiki 2017 Wikimedia movement strategy portal.

Start of the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees elections[usba ang wikitext]

Please accept our apologies for cross-posting this message. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

Wikimedia-logo black.svg

On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee, I am pleased to announce that self-nominations are being accepted for the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Elections.

The Board of Trustees (Board) is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long-term sustainability of the Wikimedia Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. More information about this role can be found on Meta-Wiki. Please read the letter from the Board of Trustees calling for candidates.

The candidacy submission phase will last from April 7 (00:00 UTC) to April 20 (23:59 UTC).

We will also be accepting questions to ask the candidates from April 7 to April 20. You can submit your questions on Meta-Wiki.

Once the questions submission period has ended on April 20, the Elections Committee will then collate the questions for the candidates to respond to beginning on April 21.

The goal of this process is to fill the three community-selected seats on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. The election results will be used by the Board itself to select its new members.

The full schedule for the Board elections is as follows. All dates are inclusive, that is, from the beginning of the first day (UTC) to the end of the last.

  • April 7 (00:00 UTC) – April 20 (23:59 UTC) – Board nominations
  • April 7 – April 20 – Board candidates questions submission period
  • April 21 – April 30 – Board candidates answer questions
  • May 1 – May 14 – Board voting period
  • May 15–19 – Board vote checking
  • May 20 – Board result announcement goal

In addition to the Board elections, we will also soon be holding elections for the following roles:

  • Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
    • There are five positions being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.
  • Funds Dissemination Committee Ombudsperson (Ombuds)
    • One position is being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.

Please note that this year the Board of Trustees elections will be held before the FDC and Ombuds elections. Candidates who are not elected to the Board are explicitly permitted and encouraged to submit themselves as candidates to the FDC or Ombuds positions after the results of the Board elections are announced.

More information on this year's elections can be found on Meta-Wiki. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the election talk page on Meta-Wiki, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections(at)

On behalf of the Election Committee,
Katie Chan, Chair, Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee
Joe Sutherland, Community Advocate, Wikimedia Foundation

Wikidata description editing in the Wikipedia Android app[usba ang wikitext]

Wikidata description editing is a new experiment being rolled out on the Wikipedia app for Android. While this primarily impacts Wikidata, the changes are also addressing a concern about the mobile versions of Wikipedia, so that mobile users will be able to edit directly the descriptions shown under the title of the page and in the search results.

We began by rolling out this feature several weeks ago to a pilot group of Wikipedias (Russian, Hebrew, and Catalan), and have seen very positive results including numerous quality contributions in the form of new and updated descriptions, and a low rate of vandalism.

We are now ready for the next phase of rolling out this feature, which is to enable it in a few days for all Wikipedias except the top ten by usage within the app (i.e. except English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Turkish, and Chinese). We will enable the feature for those languages instead at some point in the future, as we closely monitor user engagement with our expanded set of pilot communities. As always, if have any concerns, please reach out to us on wiki at the talk page for this project or by email at Thanks!

A bot to combat en:WP:LINKROT (Deploy InternetArchiveBot to cebwiki)[usba ang wikitext]

Hello everyone of the Swedish Wikipedia. I am Cyberpower678, a bot operator on the English Wikipedia. I am reaching out to the content editors of this Wikipedia, in regards to the mentioned Phabricator tasks listed on the right. T120433 is a tracking ticket for an ongoing bot project to combat dead links constantly surfacing in hundreds of thousands of articles. This ticket was opened as a result of being the number one requested bot on the m:2015 Community Wishlist Survey, and can be found here. I am currently the lead developer of this bot project, and with the bot ready for deployment onto other wikis, I am asking Cebuano Wikipedians if the welcome such a bot. The Phabricator task that tracks this project is T120433.

The specific ticket for deploying this bot to the Swedish Wikipedia is T136144. The first step is gaining community consensus, through this proposal, and then adapting the bot to suit the needs of this wiki.

What does this bot do?[usba ang wikitext]

This bot is very functional, configurable, and very intelligent. The bot comes with a run page, that allows for the quick disabling of the bot, in the event of a malfunction. Every wiki will also have a config page, that directs the bot how to behave on that wiki. On the English Wikipedia, the bot is able to scan existing URLs and detect if they are dead or not. During trial testing, this has revealed to have a false positive rate of 0.1%. The reliability rate is now even better, than during the initial trial The bot is capable of replacing original URLs with archive URLs, or adding them on. It is able to read sources and citations formatted in various ways and either intelligently fix the source as needed or make the formatting consistent, by altering the way the source is formatted. InternetArchiveBot, can leave a talk page message with details of what it did to the article page. The configuration page also has an option to only leave messages and not touch the main article at all. InternetArchiveBot is {{nobots}} compliant and also supports a blank tag used on the English Wikipedia, {{cbignore}}, which instructs the bot to ignore a specific source on a page.

What wikis support this?[usba ang wikitext]

It's currently fully operational on the English and Swedish Wikipedias.
