Invitation to Admin confidence survey[edit]


Beginning in September 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-harassment tool team will be conducting a survey to gauge how well tools, training, and information exists to assist English Wikipedia administrators in recognizing and mitigating things like sockpuppetry, vandalism, and harassment.

The survey should only take 5 minutes, and your individual response will not be made public. This survey will be integral for our team to determine how to better support administrators.

To take the survey sign up here and we will send you a link to the form.

We really appreciate your input!

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.

Least Developed Countries map[edit]

Hey, this is regarding the image you made, File:Least Developed Countries map.svg. I'm having problems opening the svg file and I'm inexperienced with photo-editing anyway, so I thought it might be easier to just discuss it with you. Would it be a good idea to add (in another colour) countries that meet the Least Developed Countries criteria but don't want to be included? According to the Least Developed Countries article, this includes Ghana, Papua New Guinea, and Zimbabwe. Their inclusions would be especially useful in some of the English (and apparently German and Italian) articles about the Three/Four Worlds model. Prinsgezinde (talk) 12:16, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

@Prinsgezinde: Interesting idea. I could create a similar file (titled something like "Least Developed Countries candidates map.svg") including the alterations you suggested. If you can wait until the end of the day I'll have it ready by then. Gabbe (talk) 12:41, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
Great, thanks! I found a newer version of the handbook that also still mentions those three countries, meaning it was seemingly still valid as of October 2015. By the way, Equatorial Guinea was promoted from Least Developed Country in 2017, so it can be made green as well. Prinsgezinde (talk) 12:54, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
@Prinsgezinde: There, I've updated the original map (to reflect the current status of Equitorial Guinea), and also created a second map. The other one is available at File:Least Developed Countries map, with candidates.svg. If you need anything else, just let me know. Gabbe (talk) 05:22, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks a bunch, that'll definitely help. I'll put them to good use later today. Prinsgezinde (talk) 11:39, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
