Sony dandiwal: Created page with "ਸੰਦ-ਅਨੁਵਾਦ ਕਾਰਵਾਈ ਹੇਠ ਹੈ" [[File:ToolTranslate screenshot.jpg|right|thumb|ਸੰਦ-ਅਨੁਵਾਦ ਕਾਰਵਾਈ ਹੇਠ ਹੈ]] This is the manual for the [https://tools.wmflabs.org/tooltranslate ToolTranslate] tool. For now, English only; feel free to translate! == Purpose == Many tools on WMF Labs lack interface translations, that is, they are only available in one language, usually English. Even tools that support multiple languages in the interface use clunky methods for adding new languages and translations. ToolTranslate offers a centralized, user-friendly way for The Community (TM) to provide translations for tools. Tools need to support this mechanism, that is, they need to be "worked over" once to use dynamic rather than static text in the interface. [http://magnusmanske.de/wordpress/?p=405 Original blog post]. == Translate == # Go to [https://tools.wmflabs.org/tooltranslate the tool] # If requested, authorize the tool # Chose a tool to translate from the drop-down box # Chose or add the language to translate into # Double-click the "cell" where your new translation should go, or the translation you wish to improve # Type in your text. You can use HTML (no JavaScript!). There may be a suggestion for translation from another tool with the same "key name", you can use it as a basis for your text. # Click OK. Done! Browser caching issues aside, your translation should show in the respective tool the next time you load it. == Resources == * [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qE3Yo-5EqdI Demo video] on the ToolTranslate interface (used on the tool itself!) * [https://tools.wmflabs.org/tooltranslate/demos/demotool1.html Simple demo tool] and [https://bitbucket.org/magnusmanske/tooltranslate/src/d93e2e706a76be21ee02affb0bc1cdece8f087ae/public_html/demos/demotool1.html?at=master&fileviewer=file-view-default HTML/JS source] * [https://tools.wmflabs.org/wlmuk/index_wd.html WikiLovesMonuments (Wikidata edition)] as a slightly more ambitious example * [https://bitbucket.org/magnusmanske/tooltranslate git repo] == Tech == Translations are stored in a database on Labs. Old revisions of translations are kept, and translations are attributed to the respective editor. (A "recent changes" tool will follow shortly.) To simplify access to translation data, all translations are also stored in JSON files, which are updated on every change. Example "demotool1": * [https://tools.wmflabs.org/tooltranslate/data/demotool1/toolinfo.json toolinfo.json], a JSON file with information about the tool * [https://tools.wmflabs.org/tooltranslate/data/demotool1/en.json en.json], the JSON file containing the English translation of that tool. Other languages work in the same manner, with the respective language code There is also a [https://tools.wmflabs.org/tooltranslate/data/languages.json JSON file] with all valid languages. === Database === The source data is stored in the s53069__tooltranslate_p database on tools-db on tools labs (mysql --defaults-file=~/replica.my.cnf -h tools-db s53069__tooltranslate_p). Data can be fetched from there as well if needed. Following tables are available: * tool :* id | name | label | url | owner * translation :* id | tool_id | language | key | json | user | timestamp | current == HowTo: HTML/JS == * Check out the [https://bitbucket.org/magnusmanske/tooltranslate/src/d93e2e706a76be21ee02affb0bc1cdece8f087ae/public_html/demos/demotool1.html?at=master&fileviewer=file-view-default demo code] * The [https://bitbucket.org/magnusmanske/tooltranslate/src/d93e2e706a76be21ee02affb0bc1cdece8f087ae/public_html/tt?at=master&fileviewer=file-view-default ToolTranslate JS [...]

Guillaume (WMF): add transcript {| class="wikitable" |{{anchor|1}}[[#1|1]] |== preliminaries == |- |{{anchor|2}}[[#2|2]] |2: I do feel that transparency is a protection against other principles and values being compromised. If I felt that they’re likely to be compromised and be traded off, I’d emphasize them. Transparency falls squarely in that category. If you don’t call it out it’s likely to fall through the cracks. |- |{{anchor|3}}[[#3|3]] |1: Meta question about values vs. guiding principles. |- |{{anchor|4}}[[#4|4]] |== your three values == |- |{{anchor|5}}[[#5|5]] |=== 1 === |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |(overall meta point: making sure I’m hitting values I think are critical for the future, not only those that have served us well in the past) |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |Pluralism - of identities; of types of knowledge (not only Enlightenment-driven, but careful around distinctions of wisdom vs. propaganda!); of forms of knowledge (not only heavily textual, but visual, audial et al) |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |1: because there’s a very clear focus on the encyclopedia, historically driven culturally specific concept, highly Enlightenment driven form, what do we know about the world’s knowledge, that is well beyond that form. Careful about the distinction between knowledge, wisdom, propaganda. In terms of product: how do we make sure as we move ahead that the forms of knowledge that we are producing are multiple, diverse, plural. Different ways for people to access, understand this knowledge. |- |{{anchor|9}}[[#9|9]] |Hospitality - there’s a difference between open and welcoming, and while we value openness for many different reasons, key is to be welcoming at the same time. And this is a cultural value many communities (offline as well as online) understand in embodied practice. |- |{{anchor|10}}[[#10|10]] |1: What have we been missing in the last 15 years in terms of openness? Really significant way in which open doesn’t mean welcoming. Trying to think about a value that could be something that people think about in the real world. Hospitality is a value that most of our communities understand and can embody. Applicable to editors but also people who read and support Wikimedia sites. |- |{{anchor|11}}[[#11|11]] |Cooperation with collaboration |- |{{anchor|12}}[[#12|12]] |1: Feels obvious to me that the way that Wikimedia projects (Wp in particular) is structured is around a form of peer production, collaboration. But there’s a difference between the symbolic cooperation and collaboration. Strong tacit meaning that leads to practice certain kinds of behavior. What are the ways in which we can think of the hows and the whys about values. |- |{{anchor|13}}[[#13|13]] |=== 2 === |- |{{anchor|14}}[[#14|14]] |Useful to distinguish between the values of the foundation and those of the projects (e.g. Wikipedia: five pillars, what the community feels is important). If we make up announcement about what we think is important, it doesn’t mean that the rest of the community does. Something like friendliness hasn’t necessarily made it to the practices on the wiki. Model out what we’re trying to preserve and protect against. Within the concept of the WMF specifically, the models of what can go wrong are different from those of what can wrong with communities. E.g. for the organization, giving people space to lead while protecting the culture, whereas communities have other threats. What I picked are those that I think are important for th[...]

Guillaume (WMF): add transcript {| class="wikitable" |{{anchor|1}}[[#1|1]] |2: I chose three values as values of the WMf needs to accomplish the vision and mission” not really as “why are we going there”? |- |{{anchor|2}}[[#2|2]] |F: 1: Could you add more context about 1a, respect? |- |{{anchor|3}}[[#3|3]] |1: Respect: Kind of a loaded one. I have a sense that there is a lot of hurt in our communities, and amongst foundation employees. I think a lot of that hurt (if it’s at least somewhat real) stems from a lack of respect in communication with each other. It can range from simple things like wording something in a manner that is intended to hurt, to not showing genuine interest in why people are saying, or what they’re saying. I think about the values I hold dear, and I think there continues to be more work to be done about showing respect in words and actions. Taking seriously people’s concerns. That doesn’t necessarily mean … voices of … but there’s something to be said for responding to difficult people in a respectful manner, and encouraging people to be respectful, without being too preachy about what respect is. I know there’s this notion about demonstrating good behavior...engaging with the movement, and making people feel heard, is an important thing. I can’t think of a lot of parallels to what we’re doing … we’re sort of like the US government in certain ways. The best part of the U.S. gov. Engage with respect with their constituents. …. I’ve heard people talk about this, but we’re working for the constituents, and some of them are active, some inactive, some paying attention, some not paying attention, although they’re receiving the benefits of active people and the work that we do. |- |{{anchor|4}}[[#4|4]] |F: That’s awesome 1, I love it. Maybe we could hear from 2 about your first value |- |{{anchor|5}}[[#5|5]] |2: There is a point … you were talking about working things in a manner intended to hurt. Sometimes there are also things that people didn’t intend to hurt… culture, personal differences, that exacerbate communication differences… things to escalate. … That’s one of the pieces of respect that’s hard…. Being able to step back out of respect for the people you’re communicating with, and for the communication itself |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |1: No response to that, other than I agree. I had a fleeting thought that there was a bit of a tangent, but I let it escape to listen, so if it comes back to me I’ll bring it up |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |2: My first value: values that are necessary if we ever hope to get to our vision. Inclusiveness seems that it must be one of the values. … everybody, not just if they’re in the right country, etc. not just in an encyclopedic format, but everything. … It’s not just about… or about recording history. There are mirrors too. I remember discussion that we had that seemed to center around: if readership goes elsewhere, that’s bad, because we lose a pool of editors, and they don’t help improve our content, and we lose donations, … so sites reusing our content were seen as a threat.  There should be 100s of sites that reuse our content. … Don’t tunnel vision. |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |And also inclusiveness is about everybody. Not just middle-class folks, but everybody. |- |{{anchor|9}}[...]

Guillaume (WMF): add transcript {| class="wikitable" |{{anchor|1}}[[#1|1]] |== your three values == |- |{{anchor|2}}[[#2|2]] |=== 1 === |- |{{anchor|3}}[[#3|3]] |Open-mindedness: This is necessary for both myself, my team and the community members we work with to consider what might be possible. WMF needs to be open minded when considering ideas that the community wants funding or support. Even if the project itself does not make sense, it is important to be open to understand the needs and interests that are behind the idea and why it is important. We need grantees to be open minded about making changes to their plans to incorporate best practices |- |{{anchor|4}}[[#4|4]] |Forgiveness: We are all prone to making mistakes or having things turn out much differently than we had intended. It has been so important to demonstrate that mistakes bad behavior can be forgiven when there is mutual understanding about why |- |{{anchor|5}}[[#5|5]] |Vulnerability: Requesting funding in public and answering questions from strangers about your ideas and plans can be hard for grantees, especially when writing in a non native language. It can be really challenging to post feedback publicly, too. Supporting people to be open to listen to feedback, and forthright and objective when giving feedback is an important and often overlooked part of my work. |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |=== 2 === |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |Transparency - I don’t use this one as much in my day to day, as my work often has some confidentiality in it, but I see it as important for the same reasons I mentioned earlier. I think transparency is a way to help keep us honest and equitable. |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |Authenticity - This one isn’t on the list, but I think coming to conversations and problems with authenticity helps us find solutions. Promotes vulnerability and trust by being ourselves. |- |{{anchor|9}}[[#9|9]] |Fun - A little fun, and humor, goes a long way on our team. |- |{{anchor|10}}[[#10|10]] |Learning - I like this one more than Transparency. I want to come to work when I’m learning. |- |{{anchor|11}}[[#11|11]] |=== 3 === |- |{{anchor|12}}[[#12|12]] |Transparency |- |{{anchor|13}}[[#13|13]] |I know this is a very nuanced word/concept, but I do still believe we shouldn't leave it behind. We need to address the failings we had in the past with a knee jerk reaction to radical transparency (not that I'd be against that in principle ;) ). |- |{{anchor|14}}[[#14|14]] |This value also helps ensure that we can deliver on our other commitments/values. It forces accountability. |- |{{anchor|15}}[[#15|15]] |We covered a bit of the “shadows” of this value earlier, but they include a tendency to react and create safe private places and potentially reduce collaboration points. |- |{{anchor|16}}[[#16|16]] |Also, it’s always in flux/evolving based on the people and the organization’s current needs. |- |{{anchor|17}}[[#17|17]] |(I like #1’s inclusion of “vulnerability” and it’s an obvious need, along with “forgiveness” for transparency to work. As transparency is a partial prerequisite for accountability, vulnerability and forgiveness are prerequisites to transparency) |- |{{anchor|18}}[[#18|18]] |Compassion/Health |- |{{anchor|19}}[[#19|19]] |We’re people.

This type of collaboration is what made Wikipedia unique and what brought us where we are. |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |=== 2 === |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |Civility - I think this important for solving problems when communications get difficult.  It is not about deference but about listening, being open and receptive to new, different and contrary perspectives.  I think civility is also important when guiding principles such as freedom and independence are used in a radical way that leads to toxic communication.  It requires people to have a sense of accountability for the things they say and the manner in which they say them. |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion - In an organization that has a mission to bring free knowledge to the world, it is important for the organization to have people from diverse backgrounds doing the work and advancing the mission.  I think it is critical to the sustainability and longevity of the projects to reflect diverse cultures, backgrounds, experiences, etc in order to provide the possibility for greatest innovation and accessibility.  The organization must also be committed to inclusion in terms of fostering the kind of environment where the people who are brought in will feel welcome and stay. |- |{{anchor|9}}[[#9|9]] |Collaboration - this is fundamental to bringing out the best in everyone.  When people feel they have a voice and are involved this will foster more engagement, openness and productivity.  It requires everyone to come to the table to do the work.  Free riding is not allowed. |- |{{anchor|10}}[[#10|10]] |=== 3 === |- |{{anchor|11}}[[#11|11]] |Acknowledging reality |- |{{anchor|12}}[[#12|12]] |There is a narrative for everything. That narrative does not always reflect accurately what is really happening. For me, it’s important to measure things, yes, and also acknowledge that not all things are measurable. This is more about accepting where we are at so that we can know where we are going. |- |{{anchor|13}}[[#13|13]] |Transparency/access to information |- |{{anchor|14}}[[#14|14]] |I’m not a big fan of secrets. Secrets can breed resentment and mistrust, and enhance a volatile political environment. Having access to information also allows people to feel equal, and when people feel equal they feel less compromised. When people feel less compromised, they are more inclined to collaborate. |- |{{anchor|15}}[[#15|15]] |Equality of participation |- |{{anchor|16}}[[#16|16]] |This overlaps some with the other two values.

Involves making it as easy as possible for people to access knowledge (language, formats) and also for sharing knowledge (expertise, specific tools). Insuring people can collaborate in constructive ways without fear for their safety (physical, emotional). The WMF being clear and understandable in public communications. What we’re saying should be accessible. About framing and organizing public discussions to ensure wide participation. |- |{{anchor|16}}[[#16|16]] |Integrity – ensuring our actions are grounded in our mission and values; being truthful and confident in our communications |- |{{anchor|17}}[[#17|17]] |2: When we take action, it’s grounded in our values and our mission. We have reasons for doing what we do. Being honest in our communication. We can explain actions and decisions as much as possible. Leads to consistency in our actions and decisions. Because of that grounding in mission and values should be steering us on a consistent path that we should follow. Should also lead to a strong confident voice in our communications. If we’re making a decision, we should be able to explain why, tied to our mission; not having to apologize for decisions we made. |- |{{anchor|18}}[[#18|18]] |Flexibility – being able to take in new information and potentially change behavior based on that information |- |{{anchor|19}}[[#19|19]] |2: Be able and willing to take in new information and change behavior.

Guillaume (WMF): add transcript {| class="wikitable" |{{anchor|1}}[[#1|1]] |== preliminaries == |- |{{anchor|2}}[[#2|2]] |5 : it’s the only way to ensure that we keep collaborative nature. The WMf is just here to enable the community to do things, and without transparency we can’t reach that goal. Enabling collaboration between the WMF and the community |- |{{anchor|3}}[[#3|3]] |4: I see the values more as a how, rather than a why. Things like transparency are a means to an end, it’s  not what we want to achieve. |- |{{anchor|4}}[[#4|4]] |1: When we approved the guiding principles, I was uneased because I didn’t understand where the separation was between them and the values. If this is the narrative we agree on and use in the future, I’m fine with that. We need some clarification between those things if we want to keep them in the future. |- |{{anchor|5}}[[#5|5]] |3: Are we talking about values of the foundation or of the movement? |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |F: For the WMF |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |4: In the Guiding principles document, it says it may come to replace the values, so this wasn’t as clear then. |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |N: transparency: equality, shared power as underlying values underneath transparency |- |{{anchor|9}}[[#9|9]] |4: Being transparent is giving people a way to trust you. |- |{{anchor|10}}[[#10|10]] |== your three values == |- |{{anchor|11}}[[#11|11]] |=== 1 === |- |{{anchor|12}}[[#12|12]] |Openness |- |{{anchor|13}}[[#13|13]] |Openness here is meant in a broader way, it’s like open up your mind, open up your abilities and open Knowledge and information for everyone everywhere. Openness also is meant in two directions, being open to others and being open to adopt changes by ourselves. |- |{{anchor|14}}[[#14|14]] |If we are not open, we create closed shops. In our head as in our projects. |- |{{anchor|15}}[[#15|15]] |1: Being open to influences, to changes, have an open mind. Not only invite people to contribute to our projects and platforms, but also being open to any new ideas, to things we haven’t thought about before. Two-direction openness. What you believe in has effects on what you create. And what we want to create is something that’s very open to every human being, so openness must be the starting point of that. Maybe difficult to separate from 5’s concept of freedom. Freedom may be one step higher. |- |{{anchor|16}}[[#16|16]] |Respect |- |{{anchor|17}}[[#17|17]] |Respect anyone as you want to be respected. Respect is the key for mutual understanding and for the ability to learn from each other. For the WMF this is important because we are still on our path to identify. (Many had identified with the mission, but do we identify with the organization?) |- |{{anchor|18}}[[#18|18]] |1: We live from collaboration. We only exist because people work together, fight, discuss, make consensus, and this can only happen if we respect each other. Not just for the community, but also for the WMF. Because of all the different perspectives people take on toward us. We need to educate a special kind of respect, that enables people to identify not just with the mission, but also with the organization. I’m very pr[...]

Guillaume (WMF): add transcript {| class="wikitable" |{{anchor|1}}[[#1|1]] |F: 1, start with you? |- |{{anchor|2}}[[#2|2]] |1: (1a) I picked the value I feel I’ve been advocating for since the beginning. People that come from a varying array of perspectives… the best (only?) way to get dialogue and come to a decision. Avoid groupthink. You might not consider something that someone coming from a different background would think of. More encompassing decisions. Wide variety of people in the conversation is what end up creating the best decision |- |{{anchor|3}}[[#3|3]] |2: (2a) we’re often afraid of new things, and say the community doesn’t want it, because people don’t want to discuss things with the community People feel there is distrust from the community, but sometimes it’s just an excuse not to be bold. Sometimes we’re afraid of the backslash from the community. Courage to try new things or stand with your own decisions. |- |{{anchor|4}}[[#4|4]] |3 (3b) Trust: Mutual trust can create a really productive work environment. Abilities are… respected. Not micromanaging people. Empowering people. There’s a reason we write user stories then write code; create intent of the work. It makes people efficient if they can work on problem in the way that suits them best. Agency and letting people do the work they were hired to do. And also the other way: trust the leadership and their decision. |- |{{anchor|5}}[[#5|5]] |F: exploring competence, reliability, etc. as components of trust |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |3: Those are  a factor too. Honesty is such an important value; I can trust people if I feel they’re being honest. Example: in hiring interviews, people who BS their way through vs. people who simply acknowledge they don’t know. |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |4 (Openness): Being open is good and we generally try to be open, with exceptions I don’t want to mention. “Not keeping secrets”: I can look at other people’s calendars, not just to schedule meetings, but to get an idea of what they’re working on. We don’t have special teams that do special things that we don’t need to know about, including the community. Not everybody needs to know about everything, but to a certain reasonable point. |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |3: I like that you said openness instead of transparency |- |{{anchor|9}}[[#9|9]] |4 transparency is a complicated word, I wanted a simpler, clearer word. |- |{{anchor|10}}[[#10|10]] |5: accountability: permeates throughout the org. Stakeholders how have a significant in the org. When you start working you may be siloed. It’s important that donors can trust us. Decisions that were made and why. And also accountability to the community; we wouldn’t be here without them. Similar to transparency, but we also have a responsibility as an org, as a nonprofit, to be able to explain our decisions. |- |{{anchor|11}}[[#11|11]] |1: respect: I used a negative example. In the office, between colleagues, we have this AGF principle, and sometimes it can be taken advantage of. Lack of trust, they don’t trust you to hold yourself accountable to aspects of your own job. You have this job, you’re w[...]

Diversity allows staff to bring forth new ideas that connect people of all races/genders/sexulaty/religions etc. Makes us more relevant to our volunteers & audience, promotes creativity. Allows us to authentically engage with volunteers, candidates & Wikipedia readers of all backgrounds. |- |{{anchor|4}}[[#4|4]] |People of all backgrounds. Promotes creativity and allows us to be authentic in how we engage. Most of the people that volunteer and read are from all over the world. |- |{{anchor|5}}[[#5|5]] |Collaboration: Our communities of volunteers collaborate to create the encyclopedia that we are, without collaboration we wouldn’t have WIkipedia or any of our other projects. Our volunteers collaborate to make Wikipedia, and our staff collaborates to enable our projects by increasing efficiency of funds and resources. Collaboration among different departments inspires new ideas. |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |For staff to collaborate. I personally have worked with different departments and we’ve come up with new ideas on how to reach diverse audiences. |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |Transparency: Our product is a changed human being, this is made possible through access to information/knowledge, transparency makes us trustworthy our communities of volunteers as they need to know that they are contributing to a trustworthy movement I think transparency encompasses trustworthiness you can’t have one without the other. Giving staff access to what other departments are working on, what challenges they may be facing, etc. may inspire some to step up in ways that provide solutions, new ideas, etc. Can also increase efficiency, minimize miscommunication and make us more effective |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |Strong link between trustworthiness.

Basis of trust building, and a lack of transparency can lead to a lack of trust in its simplest form. Agree completely with 3’s comments. |- |{{anchor|11}}[[#11|11]] |Open-mindedness: This has to do with using AGF. It embodies a bunch of different values. Coming to our teams and interactions with a curiosity and a positivity and a sense of joy. If you’re open to listening what other people have to say, and new ideas, you’re engaging in a better way (?).

Not necessarily an absolute value in all contexts, but given the way we produce knowledge, we need to be transparent. One of the things I value related to transparency is privacy. Transparency is also used as an excuse. I want to be understanding of where privacy fit when we talk about transparency. |- |{{anchor|4}}[[#4|4]] |F: Just to clarify: Transparency is a guiding principle, not a value. So we’re trying to find the underlying reasons (values) why transparency is important as a guiding principle. |- |{{anchor|5}}[[#5|5]] |3: Practical things we get from transparency. Trust: no authority behind the content we produce, so transparency enables people to see how it was produced. See how it gets done. But also transparency gets us a very valuable way to learn from mistakes. Open discussions, making big decisions: if they end up being bad, we can go back and look at the reasoning that led to those decisions (and others can too). |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |== your three values == |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |=== 1 === |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |Freedom - Now the hard part. Why? You can’t produce any knowledge, free or otherwise, without freedom. Freedom to think. Freedom to question, including questioning received wisdom, information, why something is considered knowledge. Freedom to challenge other perspectives. Freedom to speak. We produce knowledge in a sense by speaking to each other while we produce knowledge. Freedom to decide what is knowledge and what is not. Intellectual freedom. |- |{{anchor|9}}[[#9|9]] |1: Unless you can think freely, it’s hard to use any kind of knowledge. Freedom to think, to question. Freedom really underlies this, it’s a precondition. Not everyone experiences this freedom. Relates to what 4 was saying about women not feeling this freedom. Freedom is speech is something that some people enjoy, and sometimes when they exercise that right, other people’s freedom is infringed on (?). Freedom of speech shouldn’t depend on how powerful you are. |- |{{anchor|10}}[[#10|10]] |4: Big +1. I hate it when people use “free speech” as a way to justify hate speech. |- |{{anchor|11}}[[#11|11]] |1: We really have to think about the freedom that the least powerful can experience. Free speech turning to hate speech, and to silencing others. |- |{{anchor|12}}[[#12|12]] |“Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high...where knowledge is free” Rabindranath Tagore, Indian poet and novelist who won the Nobel Prize (I think) |- |{{anchor|13}}[[#13|13]] |Community - We are a community of knowledge seekers and producers, not in a narrow sense.

It is also important to assume good faith in an effort to create a space where others will acknowledge that even if something is taken poorly or offensively, it was not intended so. This creates a safe space and a more receptive space to have conversations where people can discuss different views and create a more unanimous respect for each other. |- |{{anchor|4}}[[#4|4]] |Inclusive - seek to understand different perspectives, backgrounds, experiences, behaviours in an attempt to improve inclusivity. Often times we inadvertently exclude because we are unaware or have not been exposed to something. |- |{{anchor|5}}[[#5|5]] |Collaborative - what WMF represents is already so collaborative but it is important to maintain collaboration internally as well as externally. This allows for new ideas, growth, understanding, inspiration, appreciation, quality, the list goes on. |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |=== 2 === |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |Learning/Accountability/Iteration |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |* Participation: This is my favorite and most important value. I believe participation is central to who we are and what we do. In grantmaking, this is essential to our work and gives validity to the decisions we make. Here’s why: We--all of us, and all of our communities, directly and indirectly--raise money together. This is movement money. Not WMF/our money. We steward it on behalf of the community. Our grants team oversees a number of grant programs that include volunteers deciding (or at least strongly advising) on grant outcomes. Without community members participating in those decisions, they would be invalid and not legitimate. It brings to mind a phrase from the disability rights movement: “Nothing about us, without us.” People who will be affected by the grants themselves have a right to be a part of the decision making, always, and especially in the context of WMF funds. |- |{{anchor|9}}[[#9|9]] |Participation is important also in the way we do our work at WMF. Decisions and approaches should be shared -- at some level -- and people should feel they have a stake in the outcomes, and if they haven’t been a part of developing the process, participating in the work itself, or feel they have a stake in the outcome, it is likely not to succeed. Of course this is not practical or pragmatic in all circumstances, and I am not advocating that no decision ever be made except through a consensus process. That would not be efficient nor effective!

Does the desire to spread knowledge impact our ability to preserve and collect other less globally dominant forms knowledge?

This is being open to learning, growing, maturing - striving to always improve. |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |Responsibility - believe in meeting commitments and doing what you say you will do. Enabling others to succeed in meeting your part. Being mindful of resources. Using them wisely. There is a certain degree of humility that comes backed in. Especially when considering resources. Their time and money. Respecting the resources - time and money. |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |An element of stewardship and service. We are a service organization. I need to be clear that service means that we give them what they need to fulfill their roles and sometimes that is leadership. Requires being sensitive to their needs. Sometimes we lead from the back and sometimes from the front. The service is empowerment. |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |Cooperation - I see us as part of a big network of people around the world. That network is our goal. Not be the leaders, ultimately, but be a part of that larger network. We need to listen. We need to share honestly. What I like about crowdsourcing our projects. In some ways we overcome individual imperfections through the masses. By bringing in people to share work we can each help achieve perfection. We’re stronger together. An open community of givers and receivers. Central to my vision of cooperation. Open room for them to bring to the table and join you. We need to understand what they require of us so we can provide it. We need to be inviting. The best contributor is one who shares back. I realize that won’t work for everyone. Our ecosystem thrives when people contribute. |- |{{anchor|9}}[[#9|9]] |Committing to continual improvement. I thought about growth, because growth implies getting bigger. Embetterment.

Maintaining, expanding, being mindful of that is very important for our work. Primarily because the vision is so diverse. You can’t get all the world’s knowledge if you only see through one set of eyes. Close to home, the projects are so diverse, and the participants, and the reasons for participating. If the foundation accidentally becomes a monoculture on any of a gazillion axes, it’s going to become a big problem for the movement. |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |Inquisitiveness -  see new solutions to old problems; gather more knowledge to share with the world |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |Fundamental in our vision.

Why four or five? |- |{{anchor|3}}[[#3|3]] |F: In addition to getting clarity on the values, it’s also about recalibration. |- |{{anchor|4}}[[#4|4]] |N: We’re only discussing the values, not the guiding principles. Another reason for having discussions is also to reconnect with the values themselves |- |{{anchor|5}}[[#5|5]] |1: Fun historical fact: when we first decided on our vision statement, the last part of our vision “that’s our commitment” was discussed along with “that’s what we’re doing”. I like having that bit of separation there in the frame. |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |3: Transparency: check on power; easier access to information, or even access at all |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |1: People need not to have obstacles in their way, and transparency is a way to enable that |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |3: transparency also enables agency; it makes it more of an “us” thing, rather than “the folks in San Francisco” |- |{{anchor|9}}[[#9|9]] |1: now I really want a Wikipedia t-shirt that says “it’s an ‘us’ thing” |- |{{anchor|10}}[[#10|10]] |2: it increases our potential to be an inclusive organization and movement. If anybody has access to the inner workings of the organization, then even people who aren’t necessarily in a privileged circle have access. They’re on a more equal footing. |- |{{anchor|11}}[[#11|11]] |3: the implicit invitation in the fact that it’s out there |- |{{anchor|12}}[[#12|12]] |2: when we throw up additional barriers (e.g. 20 levels of policy before you figure out how to use the template to edit your talk page, etc.) that goes against transparency. |- |{{anchor|13}}[[#13|13]] |If we’re putting up roadblocks, there’s there for a reason, and maybe we need to investigate why. Keeping an eye out when these things break down and see what we can improve. |- |{{anchor|14}}[[#14|14]] |F: “shadow side of transparency”. At some point it starts working against itself. |- |{{anchor|15}}[[#15|15]] |3: We’re a discursive culture; our movement is based on discourse. By having a lot of public and available discussions, that itself embodies something about us. We can and sometimes do dig them up and say “we did this, we said this”. Sometimes this is used as a weapon, but it’s usually a good thing. It helps us know where we came from. |- |{{anchor|16}}[[#16|16]] |2: reminds me of the more general issue of “the law”. Law is so complicated that we have 1000s of years of accumulated cruft, so much that we have lawyers assigned to you when you get into a legal dispute.

Sometimes other people have things going on that you have no idea about. Thinking that ‘they should have finished by now’ doesn’t take into account that maybe their world just got shook up and right now they need to focus on something else.

Guillaume (WMF): add transcript {| class="wikitable" | {{anchor|1}}[[#1|1]] |I am #1: |- |{{anchor|2}}[[#2|2]] |Preface: Wikimedia Foundation should have values slightly different to Wikimedia movement. We act as gatekeepers, have more structure and expectations are higher on us. |- |{{anchor|3}}[[#3|3]] |* Supportive - not being supportive of one another is detrimental to shared power; our ability to be transparent; free-speech; and freedom. No one likes to be told what they are doing is not useful or wrong. Our community tells us this often and sadly we tell it to each other often - usually on public mailing lists because we feel like we need to be transparent about absolutely everything. Our developer community is tiny. Our editor numbers are shrinking. We have to ask ourselves why. How can we support an environment that is encouraging and non-toxic? |- |{{anchor|4}}[[#4|4]] |* Accountability - our donors pay our salaries. Our community makes our content. It sometimes feels like we might be wasting that, missing deadlines for example. |- |{{anchor|5}}[[#5|5]] |* Open-mindedness[Wisdom] - new ideas are hard and sometimes controversial. We hire many people outside our community whose ideas sometimes need a little bit more thought, but could be great for our mission. Many people I know have left the foundation because they feel we are not open-minded about new ideas. We either accept that the project is done and in maintenance mode or that we need new ideas to make it even better. I think we are in the latter and we need to help make ideas better rather than shoot them down. |- |{{anchor|6}}[[#6|6]] |I am #2 |- |{{anchor|7}}[[#7|7]] |* Wisdom: I see the idea of wisdom being a stand-in for thinking things through and taking thoughtful, considered action. This might be the most core value for me because it extends out to other things. We should be open and transparent because it’s the wise course of action, for example, but for me that idea of thoughtfully considering what to do is the core idea, rather than some of its specific conclusions. |- |{{anchor|8}}[[#8|8]] |* Integrity: I think this includes respecting diverse individuals and viewpoints, acting ethically, and dealing with people honestly. It’s the word I’d use for a baseline in which people can all be able to work together, trust one another, and understand that they’re collaborating in good faith. |- |{{anchor|9}}[[#9|9]] |* Creativity: I don’t mean just thinking outside the box, but more broadly offering people the opportunity to create things, to have control over the work they do and the process by how they do it. I think that when people are able to offer their particular expertise and see problems as something that they’re empowered to solve in the best way they can come up with to solve them, the resu[...]
