Call for feedback about Wikimedia Foundation Bylaws changes and Board candidate rubric[编辑]
您好. Apologies if you are not reading this message in your native language. 请帮助翻译至您的语言.
Today the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees starts two calls for feedback. One is about changes to the Bylaws mainly to increase the Board size from 10 to 16 members. The other one is about a trustee candidate rubric to introduce new, more effective ways to evaluate new Board candidates. The Board welcomes your comments through 26 October. For more details, check the full announcement.
Dear colleagues! I'm happy to present you edit-a-thon competition, that is taking part from November 1 to December 15, 2020 in different language versions of Wikipedia and Wikivoyage. Both of Wiki-projects will have 2 nominations: for articles in Russian, and for articles in other languages with 3 rewardable positions in each. It's organized by Wikimedia Russia and North-West Russia Wiki-Historians UG and its topic will be regions of activity of that UG: Saint Petersburg, the Republic of Karelia, Leningrad Oblast, Pskov Oblast, Novgorod Oblast and Vologda Oblast.

Wikidata descriptions changes to be included more often in Recent Changes and Watchlist[编辑]
Sorry for sending this message in English. Translations are available on this page. Feel free to translate it in more languages!
As you may know, you can include changes coming from Wikidata in your Watchlist and Recent Changes (in your preferences). Until now, this feature didn’t always include changes made on Wikidata descriptions due to the way Wikidata tracks the data used in a given article.
Starting on December 3rd, the Watchlist and Recent Changes will include changes on the descriptions of Wikidata Items that are used in the pages that you watch. This will only include descriptions in the language of your wiki to make sure that you’re only seeing changes that are relevant to your wiki.
This improvement was requested by many users from different projects. We hope that it can help you monitor the changes on Wikidata descriptions that affect your wiki and participate in the effort of improving the data quality on Wikidata for all Wikimedia wikis and beyond.
Note: if you didn’t use the Wikidata watchlist integration feature for a long time, feel free to give it another chance! The feature has been improved since the beginning and the content it displays is more precise and useful than at the beginning of the feature in 2015.
