Wikimedia Hackathon 2023: Trust & safety
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Group coordinator is: @jrbs

This is a task to collect ideas and progress from the group of volunteers who agreed to join the trust & safety efforts at the Wikimedia Hackathon 2023 in Athens.

Volunteer roles

  • Ensure all participants adhere to the Code of Conduct for Wikimedia's Technical Spaces and Friendly Space Policy, and Hackathon remains a harassment-free and welcoming space for all technical contributors.
  • Help report and address any trust & safety concerns during the in-person event. More information around the process coming soon.
  • Attend a Trust & Safety training organized virtually by WMF’s T&S team for all volunteers of this task before the Hackathon.
  • Be active in the Telegram channel dedicated to volunteers and participate in in-person syncs at the beginning of each day during the Hackathon.

Coordinator roles

  • Be a point of contact for the volunteer group and lead coordination efforts!
  • Reach out to potential volunteers a few weeks before the event via email, informing them about their roles and responsibilities and asking them to subscribe to this Phabricator task to stay up to date. Organizers will share a spreadsheet with contact details.
  • Invite volunteers to join the WMHack 2023 Volunteers channel on Telegram.
  • Sync up with volunteers of your group at the beginning of each day during the event and provide the necessary support to volunteers & organizers.
  • After the event, ensure no volunteering-related task remains to be resolved on Phabricator. Send a thank you message to volunteers in the form of a Wiki love token. It will be shared by organizers with all leaders soon.
