Hello! :) Do you have a discord? I would like to invite you to the Russian Wikimedia server, to the chat of the team for work with newcomers :)

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi, I'm not often on Discord, but we can agree on a moment we I can be there. Please email me with the details. :)

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

Here is the link to our server, join us and we will meet you there! :) https://discord.com/invite/grupKvn

It's just that sometimes it's very convenient to quickly ask a question, plus you can ask something directly :)

Should I access this chat room while I'm literally never on Discord? :D

If you think I can come at a defined time, I would be happy to participate. Otherwise, I don't think I would be useful if I'm not there.

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

I hope that you will sometimes come to visit us :) Suddenly you decide to use Discord for communication, and you are already in the right channels xD

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'm bookmarking the link.

But I remain available if you want to setup a more formal time. Maybe your community would be happy to ask the Growth team questions? Or maybe we'd need a time with your community, to discuss about mentoring improvements? :)

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

Yes, that would be interesting. I need to think about the topic of discussion, and understand which format is more acceptable then :)

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

"Dear mentors, let us know which tools you need" ? :)

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

Yes, it's a good question, it remains to figure out how to integrate you, given that not everyone knows English. It's easy to do this within the forum, but there may be problems within the voice chat :) To use the usual chat in Discord, for such a question ... Hmm, "session of quick questions and answers". Perhaps it would be interesting :)

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I literally just had a meeting about the "Dear mentors, let us know which tools you need" question. Our designer intern will work on this and is looking for mentors for individual interviews. And she speaks Russian.

I was thinking about inviting you (and I'm still), but maybe it is an opportunity for some of your colleagues who are less comfortable with English to participate to the Growth tools improvements? What do you think?

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

Oh, I think this is a great idea :) If she speaks Russian, it will make our path easier. And if something is not clear, then I will translate :)

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The interview would be done using Google Meet. It is an individual interview. I can give your name to my colleague. Do you know another mentor who would be interested in participating (in English, German or Russian)?

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

I can ask other mentors, I think I will find a couple of people.

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

I would probably do, if she knows Russian, a wiki meeting in the discord voice channel :) With all the available mentors.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Well, she looks for individual conversations, to have the opportunity to go deeper than with a whole group. Also, she just arrived and she focuses on a small part of everything we do. As a consequence, she may not be able to reply to every question like I can do.

So, to summarize, the options are:

  • Individual interviews about mentor tools, on Google Meet in Russian or in English.
  • Global conversation about anything related to Growth, on Discord, in English (with you interpretating if needed?).

Okay, no problem :) As it will be convenient for her.

I am afraid that I will not be able to translate the entire stream of discussion. I can only clarify. We will need to look for a translator :) My options are like this:

  • Individual interviews about mentor tools, on Google Meet in Russian or in English.
  • Global conversation about anything related to Growth, on Discord, in Russian (without translator).
  • Global conversation about anything related to Growth, on Discord, in English (with translator).
  • Global conversation about anything related to Growth, on Discord, in English in simple text chat.

Let's focus on the first point, since it is the most time sensitive one. :)

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

Yes, I agree with you :)

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

Will she write to me here?:)

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

More likely by email.
