Bot projects -- what next?[igliwat an pinagtikangan]

The bot creation of articles for all animals and plants will be finished in the near future, though there is still some polishing and maintenance to do. I've started thinking about what to do next. One possibility would be to create articles about all geographical features of the world -- cities, mountains, provinces, islands, ... There is a suitable database called GeoNames with good coverage of the world. It has some 9 million places in total (75,000 in Philippines alone). Would this be of interest to the warwp community?

I have asked the same question on cebwp as well. Lsj (hiruhimangraw) 15:47, 13 Oktubre 2014 (UTC)

Of course, this is an interesting development. I am in the process of studying the contents of the database. Thanks. --JinJian (hiruhimangraw) 03:27, 18 Oktubre 2014 (UTC)
The project is running now on cebwp, with a few thousand articles produced, see ceb:Kategoriya:Heyograpiya paghimo ni bot. Looking ok? Lsj (hiruhimangraw) 17:10, 29 Oktubre 2015 (UTC)
We are still in the process of consultation. Just in case, would it be okay with you if we will only choose towns and cities for this project at least for the near future? :) --JinJian (hiruhimangraw) 12:52, 2 Nobyembre 2015 (UTC)
No problems with that. Also no problems adding other stuff at some future date if you so wish. The only issue I can see is that the town articles will have some red links. The bot will write about a town that it is located at the shore of Lake So-and-so, and that the highest point in the vicinity is Mount So-and-so, which will leave red links unless lake and mountain articles are also created. Lsj (hiruhimangraw) 21:16, 8 Nobyembre 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the new info. I will also discuss this during our activities this coming first week of December. -JinJian (hiruhimangraw) 08:10, 9 Nobyembre 2015 (UTC)

Hi all,

We are excited to introduce a new Wikimedia Public Policy site. The site includes resources and position statements on access, copyright, censorship, intermediary liability, and privacy. The site explains how good public policy supports the Wikimedia projects, editors, and mission.

Visit the public policy portal:

Wikimania 2016 scholarships ambassadors needed[igliwat an pinagtikangan]

Hello! Wikimania 2016 scholarships will soon be open; by the end of the week we'll form the committee and we need your help, see Scholarship committee for details.

If you want to carefully review nearly a thousand applications in January, you might be a perfect committee member. Otherwise, you can volunteer as "ambassador": you will observe all the committee activities, ensure that people from your language or project manage to apply for a scholarship, translate scholarship applications written in your language to English and so on. Ambassadors are allowed to ask for a scholarship, unlike committee members.

Your input requested on the proposed #FreeBassel banner campaign[igliwat an pinagtikangan]

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!
