Bones, feliz año nuevo![editar la fonte]
Bones, Espero que os vaya todo bien. Os pido disculpas ya que no sé de asturiano aunque me guste leerlo, por favor dejen sus respuestas en asturiano, lo entiendo y así puedo aprender nuevas palabras... os deseo un feliz año nuevo con mucha salud, esperando que todo sea mejor para todos este año.
Soy Claudi Balaguer (Capsot), y os escribo ya que estoy buscando wikipedistas que puedan hacer un pequeño vídeo (máximo 15 segundos) en su idioma, en asturiano aquí obviamente) con temática libre (presentándose por ejemplo, y acaso con cosas o monumentos de tu tierra) acabando con "Bon aniversari" y/o "Per molts anys" para celebrar el 20 aniversario de la Viquipèdia catalana. Me gustaría poder contar con algunos de vosotros/vosotras (faltan mujeres en general, desafortunadament); os deseo un muy buen fin de semana. A la espera de alguna noticias favorables! Un fuerte abrazo a todos y me alegro de ver tanta energía en esta wikipedia! Claudi/Capsot (alderique) 16:15 13 feb 2021 (UTC) PS: Ya daré más detalles luego a quien le interese el tema.
- Bueno, por si acaso os pudiera interesar (acaso no...) aún queda un poco de tiempo. El vídeo, filmado horizontalemente se debería enviar a firstname.lastname@example.org. Gracias de antemano y buen fin de setmana.

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globally[editar la fonte]
Por favor, ayuda a traducilo a la to llingua
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, Wikipedia 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.

Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultations[editar la fonte]
Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2[editar la fonte]
Por favor, ayuda a traducilo a la to llingua
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[editar la fonte]
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[editar la fonte]
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.

Invitation for Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos 2021[editar la fonte]
We are inviting you to participate in Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos 2021, a global contest scheduled to run from July through August 2021.
Participants will choose among Wikipedia pages without photo images, then add a suitable file from among the many thousands of photos in the Wikimedia Commons, especially those uploaded from thematic contests (Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc.) over the years.
In its first year (2020), 36 Wikimedia communities in 27 countries joined the campaign. Events relating to the campaign included training organized by at least 18 Wikimedia communities in 14 countries.
The campaign resulted in the addition of media files (photos, audios and videos) to more than 90,000 Wikipedia articles in 272 languages.
Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) offers an ideal task for recruiting and guiding new editors through the steps of adding content to existing pages. Besides individual participation, the WPWP campaign can be used by user groups and chapters to organize editing workshops and edit-a-thons.
The organizing team is looking for a contact person to coordinate WPWP participation at the Wikimedia user group or chapter level (geographically or thematically) or for a language WP. We’d be glad for you to reply to this message, or sign up directly at WPWP Participating Communities.
Please feel free to contact Organizing Team if you have any query.
