Wikimedia Foundation’s 2023-2024 Annual Plan and Upcoming Community Conversationsแก้ไข
The main purpose of this message is to share with you the draft annual plan of the Wikimedia Foundation for the coming fiscal year from July 2023 to June 2024. The summary of the annual plan is available in multiple languages.
Some Excerpts from the Annual Plan Draft
The Wikimedia Foundation has remained in a period of transition. It welcomed new leadership last year, including a new Chief Executive Officer and Chief Product and Technology Officer. Additionally, the Foundation has navigated conversations with global communities on a range of important issues, from a future charter defining roles and responsibilities, to how we raise shared resources through banner fundraising. This year's Annual Plan attempts to provide more clarity on multi-year strategic issues that do not have quick fixes, and more detailed information on how the Foundation operates.
For the second consecutive year, the Wikimedia Foundation is anchoring its annual plan in the movement's strategy to advance equity. The intention is to connect the Foundation's work even more deeply with the Movement Strategy Recommendations to make even deeper progress towards the 2030 Strategic Direction. This year, the Foundation is recentering its plan around Product and Technology, emphasizing our unique role as a platform for people and communities collaborating on a massive scale. If you are interested to learn more, you can find detailed information on this meta page.
Requesting Your Feedback
Your feedback is highly appreciated, whether being on Meta discussion page or sharing at your local discussion space. Your comments and reflections will help improve the proposal before the Foundation’s Board of Trustees considers the plan and budget in their June meeting.
Everyone is also invited to participate in the virtual conversation on 30th April 2023 at 6am UTC (check your local time here), which is planned for participants from the Asia Pacific timezone. Kindly see the Diff calendar here. Lisa Seitz Gruwell, Chief Advancement Officer and Deputy to the Chief Executive Officer will be joining the call to share more and learn about your thoughts. You can find the information relating to virtual conversations on the collaboration page. We look forward to seeing you in the upcoming conversation!

Seeking volunteers for the next step in the Universal Code of Conduct processแก้ไข
As follow-up to the message about the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines by Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Vice Chair, Shani Evenstein Sigalov, I am reaching out about the next steps. I want to bring your attention to the next stage of the Universal Code of Conduct process, which is forming a building committee for the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C). I invite community members with experience and deep interest in community health and governance to nominate themselves to be part of the U4C building committee, which needs people who are:
- Community members in good standing
- Knowledgeable about movement community processes, such as, but not limited to, policy drafting, participatory decision making, and application of existing rules and policies on Wikimedia projects
- Aware and appreciative of the diversity of the movement, such as, but not limited to, languages spoken, identity, geography, and project type
- Committed to participate for the entire U4C Building Committee period from mid-May - December 2023
- Comfortable with engaging in difficult, but productive conversations
- Confidently able to communicate in English
The Building Committee shall consist of volunteer community members, affiliate board or staff, and Wikimedia Foundation staff.
The Universal Code of Conduct has been a process strengthened by the skills and knowledge of the community and I look forward to what the U4C Building Committee creates. If you are interested in joining the Building Committee, please either sign up on the Meta-Wiki page, or contact ucocproject wikimedia.org by May 12, 2023. Read more on Meta-Wiki.

Automatic citations based on ISBN are brokenแก้ไข
Apologies if this message does not reach you in your favorite language. You can help translate it centrally at Meta. Thanks for your help.
We have recently become unable to access the WorldCat API which provided the ability to generate citations using ISBN numbers. The Wikimedia Foundation's Editing team is investigating several options to restore the functionality, but will need to disable ISBN citation generation for now.
This affects citations made with the VisualEditor Automatic tab, and the use of the citoid API in gadgets and user scripts, such as the autofill button on refToolbar. Please note that all the other automatic ways of generating citations, including via URL or DOI, are still available.
You can keep updated on the situation via Phabricator, or by reading the next issues of m:Tech News. If you know of any users or groups who rely heavily on this feature (for instance, someone who has an upcoming editathon), I'd appreciate it if you shared this update with them.
Elitre (WMF), on behalf of the Editing team.
