Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultationsВироиш

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2Вироиш

Please help translate to your language

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.

Drafting Committee: Call for applicationsВироиш

The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.

To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.

2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translatorsВироиш

From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.

To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.

Hi! Someone wrote the article of Иқбол (гурӯҳ) on huwiki and it is now on deletion proposal discussion because there are no sources. I tried to find sources and this seems like a notable band but I cannot find any proper reliable sources. Can you help with any sources, please? Thanks a lot, Xia (баҳс) 14:58, 30 апрели 2021 (UTC)

Xia (баҳс) Information about the band "Iqbol" in YouTube . Information about the band is "Iqbol" very limited. these are informational messages in the Tajik language. (you speak Tajik)

They are in printed form in libraries.

Шухрат Саъдиев It would help if someone could list a few articles as sources in the Tajik article and then we could take those sources over from here. Unfortunately youtube videos are not acceptable sources in huwiki and at the moment the article is to be deleted... Thanks a lot in advance. Xia (баҳс) 16:19, 2 май 2021 (UTC)
