Hello and welcome to my userpage!
This is not Anthere's page; this is a page about her. There is a difference. As any wiki page, one may freely edit it. Anthere, naturally, may revert it as well.
Hello ! Anthere
for wikipedians since early 2002, my name in real life is Florence Nibart-Devouard
. From 2004 to 2008, I held a position on the board of trustees
of the Wikimedia Foundation
, first as vice-chair, then as chair (following Jimmy Wales
. After 3 terms, very proud of the work done, but a little tired nevertheless, I decided not to run
for a 4th term.
I became a member of the Advisory board of Wikimedia Foundation.
Co-founder of the association Wikimedia France at the end of 2004, I stayed for a long time on its board. I decided at the end of 2012 to stop my involvement as vice-president of its board of directors.
In real life, I am manager of international projects and may also be a public speaker or advisor. Check out my website: devouard.com or my old blog http://www.anthere.org or my linkedin profile.
I conceived and then run various projects related to Wikimedia projects. In the recent years, this is particularly the case of
- Wiki Loves Africa an annual photography contest whose theme changes each year (2014: cooking, 2015: traditional outfits, 2016: dance and music, 2017: people at work), with a common context: Africa;
- m:Kumusha Takes Wiki, an outreach project in Uganda and Côte d'Ivoire (2013-2015);
- Wiki Loves Women, a project to release content on African women in Nigeria, Côte d'Ivoire, Cameroon and Ghana (2016-2017);
- Wikipedia:Wiki Loves Women/Writing Contest, a Writing Contest on African Women (January 2016)
- #16WikiWomen Translation Drive, 16 days to make available biographies on 16 notable African women, in at least 16 languages (March 2017)
- m:WikiFundi, a software that provides off-line editing environment that mimics the Wikipedia environment. It allows training and contribution when technology, access and electricity outages fail or are not available at all and goes with a resource kit, the Wikipack Africa (2016-2017)
I am a participant to the French and English versions of Wikipedia since February 2002, sometimes of other wikimedia projects. For several years, I was m:Steward and part of the Wikipedia:Mediation Committee on the English-speaking Wikipedia at its start (2002 or 2003?). I have a status of administrator on the English and French versions of Wikipedia, on meta and commons, as well as a status of bureaucrat on fr:
And ... for those who could have escaped (is it possible?), I am a m:WikiWoman, I am 50 years old and have three kids.
Do not hesitate to leave me a message on my discussion page or to send me an e-mail.

Et l'harmonie dans tout ça ?
y a un moment où ça me gonfle d'entendre parler de communauté libre et consensuelle pour écarter toute idée de règle. Alors qu'à la base une règle c'est fait pour l'harmonie, pas pour emmerder le monde ... w:fr:Utilisateur:Aurevilly.

I wish you dreams, numerous dreams, endless dreams...and a tremendous will to realise some of them.
I wish you to live with passion and to share your passions.
I wish you to love what should be loved; I wish you to forgive what should be forgiven. I wish you to forget what should be forgotten.
I wish you silences and a love of being alone.
I wish you birds' songs when you wake up. Flowers blooming and releasing their heavy perfume. The gentle sound of rain splashing on dry earth. Sand- and pollen-carrying winds. And children's laughs.
I wish you to love being with others. I wish you to listen and hear other people's dreams.
I wish you to resist indifference, violence, grey moods, lost friends, negative virtues, lack of ethics, and broken dreams. I wish you not to sink.
Most of all, I wish you to be yourself.
