La colaboración de la semana en Wikimedia es: Wikimedia COTW/Help
(Organización de toda la ayuda de MediaWiki en el espacio de nombres Ayuda)

El canal IRC para la Wikimedia-COTW es #wikimedia-cotw en freenode.

Wikimedia-COTW (la colaboración de la semana de Wikimedia, en inglés «Collaboration of the Week») es un nuevo proyecto de la fundación de Wikimedia.Consiste en juntar a participantes de los distintos proyectos ya existentes para realizar actividades que beneficien a la comunidad de Wikimedia en su conjunto, consolidando su identidad compartida.

Wikimedia es la organización que realiza Wikipedia, Wikcionario, Wikisource, Wikilibros, Wikinoticias, Wikiquote y Commons. Si participa en alguno de estos proyectos, también puede participar en este nuevo proyecto.

WM-COTW debe satisfacer los criterios siguientes:

  • debe permitir que participe mucha gente, o por lo menos la gente que no pertenece a un proyecto específico (por ejemplo los diseñadores),
  • debe beneficiar a todos los proyectos, o a los objetivos generales de la Fundación Wikimedia,
  • debe coordinarse en Meta (esta wiki),
  • no debe ser específico de un proyecto, a menos que hayan motivos razonables para que sea una Wikimedia COTW.

Ejemplo de colaboraciones: escribir y traducir el manual de usuario usado por todas las wikis, destacar un proyecto nuevo o uno poco desarrollado, trabajar en materiales de promoción.

The current WM-COTW is prominently linked on the "Community Portal" (or equivalent) of all participating wikis.

The first Wikimedia COTW was launched on Monday, April 4, 2005. After a hiatus, the second COTW needs to be discussed and voted upon:

Participating wikis[edit]

Please add a link to the page on your wiki where the current Collaboration of the Week is featured.


Any proposal needs to be described at [[Wikimedia COTW/Proposal name]]. That page can also be the coordinating page for the collaboration, should it be choosen.

The procedure for choosing a COTW is simple. Add your proposal below. People can support as many proposals as they want. At the end of the current COTW, the nomination with the most support will be chosen. You need a user account on Meta to vote.

Use this template:

 === [[Wikimedia COTW/Proposal name]] ===

 ''Proposed by:'' ~~~~

 ''Summary:'' Proposal summary


Translations should be created at [[Wikimedia COTW/Proposal name/Two letter code]].

Wikimedia COTW/Meta cleanup[edit]

Translations: none

Proposed by: +sj+ 13:12, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Summary: Meta has a thousand pages of translation, a thousand pages of actively-used or proposed-idea content, and a thousand pages of half-obsolete or archival content. These pages should all be better organized; the main page should clarify the kind of work going on here, and Meta's place in the {wikimediafoundation, wikipedia, other wikimedia projects} Pantheon should be described clearly.


  1. and it's hard to find something on meta. It's realy needed. --PatrickD 8 July 2005 20:58 (UTC)

Wikimedia COTW/End-user image suppression[edit]

Translations: none

Proposed by: R3m0t 17:38, Mar 21, 2005 (UTC)

Summary: Let's try to refactor this discussion and come to some conclusions. We need to decide what is holding us back from implementing this, whether technical limitations, the NPOV policy, or a decree from the GodKing.


  1. R3m0t 17:38, Mar 21, 2005 (UTC)

Discussion: There's dozens or hundreds of other ideas that are not being implemented, many of them more important and less controversial than this one. - Andre Engels 20:24, 13 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Wikimedia COTW/Template:Opentask[edit]

Translations: none

Proposed by: Amayzes 22:10, 24 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Summary: I really like the Wikipedia Opentask Template but seeing the item "Help clear the backlog for moving dictionary articles to Wiktionary" makes me think that an Opentask Template that listed open tasks on all participating wikis would be useful.

Wikimedia COTW/Image Policy[edit]

Translations: none

Proposed by: FAR 20:26, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Summary:: The policy about images is diferent in each wikipedia. If we improve this it will cause less problems than now, and we will be sure we can use the images of others wikipedias in the ours.

  • Image policies cannot be fully equalized, although it would be useful, due to different legal standards in particular countries. For instance enWiki would be forced then to resign from media offered basing on the fair use rights - and now it is hardly imaginable, of course unless you convince them to do that. (or simply change legislation in EU and elsewhere... ;) ) Everything because of right to copy and further use given by i.e. German and Polish Wikipedia as the part and parcel of Wiki freedom. Of course we need some common standards on commons. :) Greetings. Aegis Maelstrom 09:01, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)
It´s true, but for example, en spanish wikipedia we don´t let images in fair use (I think) but in english it´s avaible. There are some policys very differents and a page Images policy can be a base to negociate (every wikipedia will have their own rules, but the most of them will be the same).--FAR 16:40, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)
It's false, all Wikipedias is under United States law because the Wikimedia Foundation is based in United States. Well... all Wikipedias can adopt fair use license. The future is incredible: we will can use the images of others wikipedias in the ours! -- Marcelo 20:32, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Wikimedia COTW/Help page import package[edit]

Translations: none

Proposed by: --IainDavidson 19:07, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Summary: I've installed lots of MediaWikis for myself and others. Would be great to have a basic set of core base Help: pages to be able to wiki-import after installation. Yes, I know that I could point users to the online help pages at , but alas not all my users are techies, and easily get overwhelmed if the page is longer than 2 screen fulls.


  1. --IainDavidson 19:07, 5 July 2006 (UTC) Great idea! Let's start with a basic of '10 to 15' pages of most important information that newbies need to know.
