[Wikimediaindia-l] Fwd: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Foundation proposal to call ourselves as the Wikipedia Network, Wikipedia Movement or simply Wiki

Hello,

This post on Wikimedia-l summarises and captures the recent updates and the journey so far.

Specially, in case we need to know the background and details, the links shared by Florence in the post below will take through. I’ll add some additional notes to the links (without editing the main post)

  1. Link 1 is the main rebranding page, to know more about the rebranding plan. That’s the main page.

  2. Link 2 is about an RfC that took place to understand community opinion on “Should the Foundation call itself Wikimedia?”

  3. Now after presenting the main idea (Link 1) and getting community feedback (link 2 the RfC, and different other channels were used to get feedback, including 2 workshops at Oslo, and Bangalore, 1 online workshop, mailing list discussion etc. they, as reported, gathered all feedback and presented 3 naming conventions. We are in “this” stage now.**** If you have got a post on your talk page or email asking to fill a survey, or talking about selecting one of the three naming conventions (Wikipedia network, Wikipedia movement, and Wiki), that’s the naming convention survey. The naming conventions are presented in Link 3 below.

Link 4 contains YouTube video links, where the ideas were presented in videos.

**** Actually we are slightly ahead of this stage now, especially after an Executive Summary was posted on 18 June 2020, you might have noticed another post on this mailing list yesterday. In this “for your information” or “let’s look back/summarise” post I don’t want to include that, as it will make the timeline more complicated, and will make it more difficult to follow.

Thanks for bringing this up, Tito. I recommend every Wikimedian to read them and also voice their opinion in Survey!

One minor but important correction. The RfC is for "Should the Foundation call itself *Wikipedia*?" (emphasis added)

Yes, that was a typo, thanks for correcting.
