[edit]

Hello,

I thought the newsletter logo could use some sprucing up, so I have created the proposed logo below. I have included the current logo for comparison.

Please let me know what you think. Harej (talk) 06:24, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

I'd support a new logo for TMIG. I made the original with the intention of it certainly not being used for as long as it has been. A spruce up is definitely overdue. :-) In terms of feedback on the new image, it might be worth increasing the size of the Wikimedia logo and perhaps making 'GLAM' slightly smaller.

How does this look:

I think more of the new GLAM logo should be in the This Month in GLAM logo, like the blue line under some of the words. Romaine (talk) 06:10, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

How about this:

Call for feedback on Welcome to Wikipedia brochure[edit]

(Please excuse cross-posting) Over the next few months, I will be overhauling the Welcome to Wikipedia brochure to better reflect what new editors need to know when learning how to contribute to Wikipedia. I'm hoping to get a wide variety of feedback on what people like and do not like about the current brochure so I can create a new version that reflects the best knowledge we collectively have about outreach to newbies. Please see more details and add your feedback here. -- LiAnna Davis (WMF) (talk) 17:50, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Ada Lovelace Edit-a-thon 2013 at Brown today.[edit]

I'll be presenting a brief talk about the Wikipedian in Residence/Ladd Observatory GLAM project at w:Wikipedia:Meetup/Ada Lovelace Edit-a-thon 2013 - Brown today at 4:30 pm. Online editing is also welcome for those who are not local. --mikeu talk 14:51, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

We had a great turnout and a lot of coverage in the press. Slides from my talk are available online. --mikeu talk 13:32, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

NIST- tracking image use[edit]

The NIST Research Library is planning to upload our archival photo collections to Wikimedia Commons, and I wondered if anyone could help me determine the best way to track the use of those photos. Would anyone have any suggestions as to the best way to do so? Is there any way to track how many times an image uploaded to Wikimedia Commons has been used or viewed? --Katelynd.bucher (talk) 18:24, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

@Katelynd.bucher: At the bottom of every image page on Commons it lists the image's usage on other Wikimedia projects. So there is that much at least. You might want to get in touch with the Analytics team for more information though. They should be able to help you get the stats you are looking for. Zellfaze (talk) 19:44, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
