Hello Fæ, and welcome to the Outreach Wiki! This wiki serves as a collective knowledge and collaboration space used by the outreach team and members of the volunteer community. Here are a couple of links that serve as good places to start your journey:

If you have questions, feel free to visit the Village pump or to ask me any questions you may have on my talk page. Happy editing! Regards, Rock drum (talk · contribs) 19:11, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Steering committee[edit]

I agree with all of your suggestions regarding the Ambassador committee. Indeed, why don't you sign yourself up there too. In fact, if you're not already, you should be on the cultural-partners mailinglist where we have been discussing this idea a bit (see the "contact" tab of the GLAM portal for details).

Admin[edit]

I've just realised that I've forgotten to mention it to you but... you now have admin! Happy editing, Rock drum (talk · contribs) 16:17, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, though I hope my vandal-busting skills are not in high demand on outreach. Shade.png -- (talk) 17:13, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for Temlate:Smiley[edit]

Emoji u1f60a.svg Template:Smiley
Dear ,

Thanks so much for your work on Template:Smiley. What a wonderful contribution to this community!

Might be fun to update the list to include Commons:Emoji. If you do, let me know.

All the best, Anna Koval (WMF) (talk) 22:50, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

De-sysopping[edit]

Per Wikimedia:Inactivity policy, your account is due for having advanced user rights removed. If you would like to retain these user rights, please post a message on this talk page and use {{Ping}} to alert me. Note that this message is being sent to several users who are in the same situation and many have never used administrator tools. In the past, community standards were more lax about who received adminship or bureaucratship and between this policy and a further solicitation of consensus, we are reigning in some of the requirements for advanced user rights. You will also be receiving an email from me if you have it enabled. Koavf (talk) 21:28, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi @Koavf:, I'm very active with uploads on Commons, which includes a number of GLAM projects, so I still feel that sysop rights would remain meaningful here. I'm a 2FA user, so there not much risk of my account being compromised anyway, which is probably the reason these requirements should be tightened across the wikis. -- (talk) 23:16, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
Well, another reason would be whether or not that person would be accessible to actually help. If the list of admins is a bunch of users who haven't been here in three years, that is not useful for users needing assistance. Koavf (talk) 23:17, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes, true. I'm available through lots of channels, including by being pinged on this project. It's also true that reports and manuals I have contributed to over the last couple of years have been on meta, commons or mediawiki, however that does not stop this project being a potential choice for some projects. I could ask for sysop rights whenever it becomes relevant, but with the tightening up of policies that may be more of a bureaucracy than simply refreshing the rights in this way.
We created Outreach at the time when I was a GLAM coordinator and anyone that was part of starting this project had the option of having sysop rights. It is fortunate that the sysop backlog here is vanishingly small compared to our other projects, which makes debating the rights unnecessary in my view. -- (talk) 07:42, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
Just following up here--since you requested to keep the rights, I've left them. (Plus, I've seen you around a lot on Commons and I know that you're a trusted user.) Thanks for all your good work. Koavf (talk) 17:17, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
