Movement Learning and Leadership Development Projectრედაქტირება
The Wikimedia Foundation’s Community Development team is seeking to learn more about the way volunteers learn and develop into the many different roles that exist in the movement. Our goal is to build a movement informed framework that provides shared clarity and outlines accessible pathways on how to grow and develop skills within the movement. To this end, we are looking to speak with you, our community to learn about your journey as a Wikimedia volunteer. Whether you joined yesterday or have been here from the very start, we want to hear about the many ways volunteers join and contribute to our movement.
To learn more about the project, please visit the Meta page. If you are interested in participating in the project, please complete this simple Google form. Although we may not be able to speak to everyone who expresses interest, we encourage you to complete this short form if you are interested in participating!
Additional interface for edit conflicts on talk pagesრედაქტირება
Sorry, for writing this text in English. If you could help to translate it, it would be appreciated.
You might know the new interface for edit conflicts (currently a beta feature). Now, Wikimedia Germany is designing an additional interface to solve edit conflicts on talk pages. This interface is shown to you when you write on a discussion page and another person writes a discussion post in the same line and saves it before you do. With this additional editing conflict interface you can adjust the order of the comments and edit your comment. We are inviting everyone to have a look at the planned feature. Let us know what you think on our central feedback page! -- For the Technical Wishes Team: Max Klemm (WMDE) 14:15, 26 თებერვალი 2020 (UTC)

Annual contest Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photosრედაქტირება
This is to invite you to join the Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) campaign to help improve Wikipedia articles with photos and win prizes. The campaign starts today 1st July 2020 and closes 31st August 2020.
The campaign primarily aims at using images from Wikimedia Commons on Wikipedia articles that are lacking images. 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.
Please visit the campaign page to learn more about the WPWP Campaign.
With kind regards,

Opt-in to Global Sysop assistanceრედაქტირება
Hello users of the Georgian Wikipedia,
I would like to propose that this wiki (kawiki) opt-in to Global Sysop assistance which would allow global sysops to help this wiki with anti-vandalism actions, especially when crosswiki. This comes after a recent vandalism attack by an apparent LTA. This wiki only has 3 active sysops, but none were available. If this wiki had opted-in to GS assistance beforehand, this would not have happened. This wiki once had 11 sysops, so this wiki opted-out, but I think this wiki should now opt-in as there are few active sysops.
What do you think? If there is consensus, I will post a request at m:SRM.
- @Can I Log In Hello. Due to the small number of sysops on our wiki, I agree with your suggestion. გიო ოქრო 08:52, 5 სექტემბერი 2020 (UTC)
- Anyone else want to comment before I post at m:SRM? Can I Log In განხილვაწვლილი 15:00, 6 სექტემბერი 2020 (UTC)
- Hello @Can I Log In, thanks for the offer, but I think it's not worth doing this. Yes, the number of administrators is small, but they are doing their job. Also, the number of crosswiki vandalism is small here, so this is not an argument in favor. Plus, local vandalisms are small and active users fully cope with it, also global functionaries, meaning not knowing the language, I don't think they can handle it. So, I'm against it. Sincerely, Mehman 97 16:28, 6 სექტემბერი 2020 (UTC)
- Anyone else want to comment before I post at m:SRM? Can I Log In განხილვაწვლილი 15:00, 6 სექტემბერი 2020 (UTC)
- Hello @Can I Log In:. There are several reasons why I don't like this idea. First, cross-wiki vandalism is pretty rare in kawiki and for a pretty long time here I can't think of any important incidents. Second, the mechanisms that we have here - specially article validation - give more than enough protection to valuable content of ka wiki. Second reason is rather ideological reason - I strongly believe in autonomy of wikiprojects. So far admins in ka-wiki are doing their job pretty well, and one fact of cross-wiki vandalism excluded from general picture is not a reason to undermine autonomy of the community of Georgian wikipedia. Third, the post in English is definitely not enough to adequately check position of ka-wiki on the subject.--Melberg მიწერა 19:33, 6 სექტემბერი 2020 (UTC)
- It looks like there is rough consensus to not opt-in at this time. As long there are multiple active admins you are fine to make your decision to opt-in or not. However, if the number of active admins drops to one sometime in the future, I strongly suggest to opt-in. If it somehow drops to zero, you are automatically opting-in. Happy editing!

Improving the translation support for the Georgian Wikipediaრედაქტირება
- Sorry about not being able to write in Georgian. I hope someone can translate this!
- Простите, я не умею писать по-грузински, но я могу читать и писать по-русски. Надеюсь, что кто-нибудь сможет перевести всё, если надо.
Content translation has been successful in supporting the translation process on many Wikipedia communities, and we want to help additional wikis with potential to grow using translation as part of a new initiative.
Content translation facilitates the creation of Wikipedia articles by translating content from other languages. It has been used already to create more than half a million articles. In addition, the tool provides mechanisms to encourage the creation of good quality content, preventing the publication of lightly edited machine translations. In general, our analysis shows that the translations produced are less likely to be deleted than the articles started from scratch.
Georgian Wikipedia editors have used Content translation to create more than a thousand articles. Given the size of the editing community, we think that there is potential to use translation to create more articles, expand existing ones, and attract new editors that learn how to make productive edits. Translation can help the community to reduce the language gap with other languages and grow the number of editors in a sustainable way. In order to achieve this goal, we want to collaborate with you to make Content translation more visible in the Georgian Wikipedia and support new ways to translate.
As a first step, during the next weeks we plan to enable Content translation by default on the Georgian Wikipedia. That will make it easy for users to discover the tool through several entry points. However, users not interested in translation will still be able to disable it from their preferences.
Please feel free to share any comment in this conversation thread.
