User digest upate/Wikipedia to the Moon: result of the community voting

Michael Jahn-3

Hi everyone,


the community voting on Wikipedia to the Moon has ended. I announced the result at yesterday’s User digest session at Gym Palace.

152 unique voters decided between 10 different scenarios. The winning idea is to send all featured articles and lists to the Moon, with 93 pro votes. This decision means, that from July 1 on, Wikipedians from all language communities are invited to work on their best articles and lists, and submit them to Wikipedia to the Moon. The central site to coordinate between communities will be Meta-Wiki. Details to follow next week. Please note that if you have questions about the winning idea and how to work with it, the best place to go is the project page on Meta-Wiki.


The voting and its result:

Thanks to everyone who voted! We put the proposal up on Meta-Wiki on 24 April. The pages were immediately translated by volunteers into more than 60 languages. Many people engaged in the 6-week-discussion about how (and if) to work on this together. Out of 17 scenarios, 10 were available in the voting (past 2 weeks). Now the working phase/editing will be open until 31 October, leaving much time to select and improve content, or solve challenges along the way.[1]


The goal is to hand over our “Wikipedia time capsule” by 5 December 2016, which is International Volunteers Day.[2]


Best

Michael
