Categorization[edit]

Hi. Well, if you don't like my way of categorization then do it your own way but please dont leave pages uncategorized. Uncategorized pages it's a mess. Thank you in advance. --Base (talk) 23:27, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Hello Base, Sorry, I do not want to offend you, but all pages that need categorisation have a category, and all pages which do not need a category don't have one. There is absolutely no need to categorize every page. Uncategorized pages aren't a mess, it becomes a mess when people start to add categories while they do not understand the navigational structure of this group of pages. And please consider, this group of pages aren't unrelated freely, but are subpages, working pages, which support the mother page. This isn't Wikipedia of Commons where every article or file needs a category. Besides that the category was incorrect. And please realize, I am very much experienced in categorisation, I maintain the category tree on several wiki's, I am not just doing something. I publish this newsletter for some time now and I am fully aware of the categorisation. Greetings - Romaine (talk) 16:17, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

This Month in GLAM[edit]

Hi Romaine. Do you need any help getting the Dec 'This Month in GLAM' published? I noticed it's running a little late and would love to help if needed. 68.194.44.162 18:40, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Hello! Getting the newsletter published is not the issue. The for me most consuming time is to ask everyone to write for it, as a lot of GLAM organizers often forget to write a story. I am going to publish this edition now. But if you are willing to help contact the writers in all the countries, I would be very happy and gives me some air to breath. Greetings - Romaine (talk) 16:26, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

this month in GLAM — question[edit]

Hey Romaine,
I'm contacting you as one of the editors of This Month in GLAM. I submitted a piece of news (about this) we'd like to have published in the next issue through e-mail, but I never got an acknowledgement of it and I'm worried something is wrong. Do you know anything about it? Thanks! --ESM (talk) 09:52, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Hello ESM, The newsletter is written by Wikimedians who are active with working with GLAMs or follow it. They write themselves by starting in the GLAM/Newsletter/Newsroom and select their country and add their text there. Romaine (talk) 07:58, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks much for great support for the newsletter[edit]

Hi Romaine, thank you so much for your great support for helping in drafting the report on Gueriilla GLAM. I am so glad that it finally went in such short time. Kudos to you and all other friends there who are tirelessly publishing the newsletter. I am looking forward to collaborate and work more with you all. --Psubhashish (talk) 05:04, 11 December 2015 (UTC) ː)

Education campaign[edit]

Hi Romaine, I hope you have had a good week so far! I'm messaging to request your feedback for the newest education campaign that is in the works right now. For more information, you can view the Projects page on the Outreach portal. If you would like to share your opinions, please do so on the discussion page. If you have any questions, you are more than welcome to contact me. Thank you for your help! Loreen.Ruiz (talk) 21:47, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

This Month in GLAM[edit]

thanks for the continuing work, and thanks. i tend to follow the wikipedia / twitter school of sentence + link, and need to include more exposition. and i would have gotten to this month sooner, if not for the wikiconference north america monopolizing all my attention. Slowking4 (talk) 16:33, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

This Month in GLAM from Ghana[edit]

Hi Romaine, I have just written an article for the new letter in relation to Ghana. I created the page myself and what you to check if everything is fine. I will be on standby for your advice and suggestions on how to make this better. Thanks --Flixtey (talk) 00:05, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Flixtey, Thank you for contributing! Yes, everything is fine. The artcle will be included in next edition of This Month in GLAM. When it is published and send it, it will be tweeted via https://twitter.com/ThisMonthinGLAM as well. Greetings - Romaine (talk) 04:57, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

This month in GLAM from Macedonia[edit]

Hi, Romaine! We would like to inform you that we have written the report for October which is covering the exhibition of photographs from Brazil. You can read it on this link [1]. We are sorry that we are late and we promise that we well be more accurate in the future. Best regards. - Македонец (talk) 08:15, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi Македонец, Thank you for writing the report! The newsletter is scheduled to be published at the 7th of each month. The latest edition of the newsletter was a little bit late and published very early in the morning of 9 November. For that reason I would like to suggest that we add the current report to next month's edition of This Month in GLAM. Would that be okay? Romaine (talk) 17:36, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

Brazil-Belgium[edit]

Hello! I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to check on the interest of WM-Belgium on a potential partnership around a GLAM initiative we're currently negotiating. I had a meeting today with the founder of Belgian Club, a project to collect information and images on the influence of Belgians in Brazil. Our idea is to basically work with this Club to improve content on the cultural bonds between Brazil and Belgium. I believe we might find a way of establishing a connection here. I hope this sounds interesting. Talk soon! --Joalpe (talk) 00:16, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Joalpe, Sure, I think a partnership can be possible. Depends of course on what will come out of it. Greetings - Romaine (talk) 07:23, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
Well... The idea is basically to improve content on the connection between Brazil and Belgium. We will upload hundreds of art images of Belgian artists who have lived or worked in Brazil. It'd be nice to see if it is possible to upload possible artwork from them that is in Belgium. We will also work on key entries, especially painters. Will you be on Wikimania? We can discuss this there... --Joalpe (talk) 23:47, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I will be at Wikimania. See you then there! :-) Romaine (talk) 09:45, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi -- me again. We are slowly preparing the new initiative --hopefully we'll find a way to have our communities collaborate on this! Here is the link. Talk soon. --Joalpe (talk) 00:42, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Education Newsletter is ready![edit]

Dear Romaine, I have published the 9th Issue of Education Newsletter, Please help in distributing it. Thanks in advance -- Saileshpat 06:58, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi Saileshpat, Thank you for your message! I just sent out the newsletter. Apparently something changed in the organisation somehow...
With Vahid we were in the middle of a transformation process to improve the navigation and some functionalities for the newsletter. I am sorry to say, but just copying the the About page is not an improvement. I do not know how the organisation of the newsletter is since the recent changes, but I hope we can collaborate on improvements. If you plan to take it over for the coming editions as well, it might be handy to have a Hangout call to talk about the distribution process and future improvements. Greetings - Romaine (talk) 01:24, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
Hi Saileshpat, My previous message gave no ping. Romaine (talk) 01:25, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
Hi @Romaine:, Thanks for sending out the newsletter. I just joined the Education team yesterday and wasn't aware of the transformation process, maybe we can discuss it this week. And about the about page, I found that it is on Meta and has no navigation links to bring back to Outreach Wiki that's why I copied it to here. I will write an email to you and let me know if you're available for the call. --Saileshpat (talk) 06:16, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

New at editing the GLAM newsletter[edit]

Hello,

Upon Sandra's suggestion that Switzerland participates to the GLAM newsletter, I have made my first attempt at adding something to it. I was wondering if you could have an eye at what I wrote and let me know if it falls within what is expected?

Thanks for your help!

--Flor WMCH (talk) 08:35, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Flor WMCH, Sorry for the delay, illness on my side.
The page you linked is perfectly in line what we expect. It will be part of the upcoming edition of the newsletter, hopefully to be published tonight. Greetings - Romaine (talk) 06:02, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
No problem, thanks for the feedback, and glad that you are better.--Flor WMCH (talk) 10:16, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
