Wikimedia Movement Strategy[edit]

Please add info about the strategy process (displayed until June, 9):

Join the Cycle 2 of the Wikimedia Movement Strategy discussions, and debate about the themes of our strategic directions.

@Quiddity (WMF). SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 15:56, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

One month? Isn't that a bit long?—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 17:27, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
Following the links says to go to a survey, but it is "coming soon" - when is that going live? — xaosflux Talk 17:31, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
@Cyberpower678: the Cycle 2 will last a month, between tomorrow and June, 9. There are local pages for that (meaning, the discussions don't take place exclusively on Meta - they deserve to be announced here). It'd be nice if there was info throughout entire period. @Xaosflux: as for the survey - after Saturday. SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 18:38, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
As the "call to action" of the message will be to drive people to the page, waiting for the survey to be live is probably a good idea, or they may not come back. — xaosflux Talk 20:17, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
Possibly, but we receive much more feedback on wiki than from surveys. On-wiki feedback is basic, and surveys are only additional. SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 21:59, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
Alrighty, but as Xaosflux said, I'm not going to add it until the survey is up. What time tomorrow will that be?—CYBERPOWER (Around) 22:01, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
The survey bullet point can be hidden with <!-- --> in the meantime. The Cycle 2 starts just "tomorrow", so I expect 00:00 UTC is fine. SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 22:09, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. So far, eraser Undone. #1, today is yesterday's tomorrow and it's still commented, and #2, the Cycle 2 ends on June 12, not 9. (Sorry, I'm just a messenger, I have no influence on the dates and changes). SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 07:46, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

I have activated the message for a week which is the standard timeframe. If there is consensus for longer then we can extend it. Also removed the italic formatting because we don't usually use that style on these messages. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 07:56, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Sure, I used italics only because it was a quotation. SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 12:27, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

I'd like this announcement to be visible ideally until June, 12 - the last day of the Cycle 2. The strategic discussion is important for the entire movement. This isn't a typical editing initiative, like Wiki Loves Anything, this isn't about only enwiki, only WMF or only affiliates. We (strategy coordinators) have problems with an effective outreach. I personally think that the wide community underestimates the issue, maybe it's too abstract, just like people in general care for their parking spots, but not necessarily for the urban planning. Whenever I post on village pumps, I receive little or no reaction, like I was a mass message bot. That's why I think irregular timeframe here is needed. SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 13:00, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

 Done I have extended it to June 12.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 13:51, 19 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Does "Join the Cycle 2" sound weird to anyone else? Shouldn't it either be "Join Cycle 2" (best choice, IMHO) or "Join the Second/second/2nd Cycle? --Floquenbeam (talk) 22:02, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
    It sounds a bit odd - what bugged me more is it seems this is already on global notice (?) - requiring multiple dismissals. — xaosflux Talk 22:20, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Cycle 3[edit]

Hi, the final round is ongoing. Please could we add this notice:

Join Cycle 3 of the Wikimedia Movement Strategy discussions, and discuss the challenges posed by the research from New Voices.

There will be fresh content once a week throughout July, so ideally it would remain open that long, or be renewed once or twice over the month, but I understand if that is objected to. Thanks. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 23:09, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Pretty sure I'm already seeing this via a force banner campaign - see notes above. Only weakly opposing - if another admin wants to add it they should feel free. — xaosflux Talk 03:54, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Not done: If it is already a global notice we shouldn't be duplicating it here — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 10:04, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

Discussion on current notice[edit]

@Xaosflux and Biblioworm:, where is the discussion and consensus to put the current watchlist notice for Wikipedia:Dispute resolution/2017 RfC up? TonyBallioni (talk) 00:54, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

@TonyBallioni: I only provided copy editing on this - assuming it should be in place, standard bolding, etc is appropriate. — xaosflux Talk 01:25, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
Since this appears to be a disputed notice with no prior discussion to putting it up, I have taken it down for now. Feel free to put it back up when this is resolved.—CYBERPOWER (Message) 01:31, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
No objection to reversion (I just got a "you were reverted" alert); if it comes back, please bold the call to action. — xaosflux Talk 01:33, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks to both of you. I'm not sure this RfC rises to the level of needing a talk page notice. Most of the current discussion is either "Why is this RfC happening?" or "I oppose all the ideas". I currently have no opinion on any of the proposals currently, but I was wondering how it got to the watchlist without a consensus that the RfC was necessary and that it should be there. TonyBallioni (talk) 01:38, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes, it was added to the watchlist more than an hour before it was added to the RfC lists. We typically only put an RfC on watchlist some time after it has been publicised through normal RfC channels. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 09:01, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

User rights RFC[edit]

Plan to add this active RFC:

Any comments or objections? — xaosflux Talk 17:20, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
Seems appropriate. –xenotalk 18:07, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
