Dear Antolepore,

It does seem that you want something fixed on Wikipedia but I am not quiet
sure your current approach would be productive. Please do not start
thinking that any of the people on this list would obey your order. I'd
encourage you to consider your tone and immediately stop the threat and
think of a civil approach to resolving the problem. If you need the help of
one or more of our volunteers on this mailing list, politely request for

Thank you

>> Greetings!
>> Apologies for cross-posting. After a successful first iteration of the
>> “Months of African Cinema” last year, we are happy to announce that it will
>> be happening again this year, starting from October 1! In the 2018 edition
>> of the contest, about 600 Wikipedia articles were created in at least 8
>> languages. There were also contributions to Wikidata and Wikimedia commons,
>> which brought the total number of wikimedia pages created during the
>> contest to over 1,000. About 9 in-person events were also organised for the
>> edit-a-thon in different parts of the world.
>> The contest is organized by a Wikimedia project called "The AfroCine
>> Project",[1] which is dedicated to improving the coverage of the history,
>> works, people, places, and events, that are associated with the cinema,
>> theatre and arts of Africa, African countries, the Caribbean, and the
>> diaspora.
>> If you would love to join this exciting event, please list your username
>> as a participant on the English Wikipedia contest page.[2] If you would
>> love to lead this contest for your country or community, please list your
>> name in the coordinators page here.[3] The rapid grants team would be
>> accepting proposals throughout October and November, in case you'd need
>> funds to run local edit-a-thons or some other activities related to this
>> event. Upon listing your name on the coordinators' page, you'd be contacted
>> to talk about the resources you'd need to run the event in your community.
>> You can also contact me directly for any clarifications.
>> Finally, We also need volunteers to handle some aspects of the AfroCine
>> project. These aspects include:
>> 1. Community Liaison: This role essentially involves closely engaging
>> with local communities to support their activities within the scope of
>> Afrocine.
>> 2. Communications: This involves the communications aspects of the
>> project. Sharing relevant information on mailing lists and social media
>> would be the responsibility of this person.
>> 3. MAC Jury: This role involves joining the jury of Months of African
>> Cinema contest. We need as many people as we can get :).
>> 4. Tools: Going forward, we would need relevant tools to better track the
>> metrics and also analyse the general impact of these events. We are calling
>> for Wikimedia volunteers who can navigate wikimedia tools that can be
>> useful for the project.
>> If you would love to help with any of these roles, or some other roles
>> that have not been mentioned, please contact me directly.
>> If you have further questions, complaints, suggestions, etc., please
>> reach out to me personally or right here on the mailing list or the project
>> talkpages.
>> Thank you!
