UCoC is up again

The last phase of UCoc was a bit confusing; it was finished early in one area, and still ongoing in another area, but this time it must be finished for sure because according to the mailing list, it’s time for “Call for Applications – UCoC Phase 2 Drafting Committee”. https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-l/2021-March/096369.html

We are looking for volunteers to join the Drafting Committee for the guidelines of enforcement for the Universal Code of Conduct.

Enforcement, yeah, that should be tricky.

There is also a short essay by Christel Steigenberger (User:CSteigenberger (WMF)), which really isn’t that bad, considering that she speaks German: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Universal_Code_of_Conduct/Drafting_committee#The_ideal_drafting_committee_paradox_-_a_short_essay

I’m not sure quite how to phrase this, but she seems… a bit straightforward?… considering the layers of baloney and machinations that encase so much of wiki process.  But maybe that’s a good thing.  And she might be one of the least unpalatable and power-trippy members of SuSa or Trust & Safety, or whatever they’re calling themselves this week, and I mean that most sincerely.

A video, in English to get an idea of her style, there are probably more. ( I haven’t watched it all, let me know if I should. 😀 )

  1. Feel blessed if you are “only” gay or have a colored skin. I am talking about the western world of course, because a colored skin in Nigeria doesn’t seems to me any problem. Or if you are female. You have of course to deal with inacceptabel discrimination, but in no way in the same way as where a trans person has to deal with. And you also find sympathizers.

    Take for instance Abd his daughter. A white woman but a important person in the black life matters mouvement.
    But does a trans life matters? And doesn’t matter every life? Are there many sympathizers? Not many unfortunately. Trans peeps are often bullied, verbally abused and even physically abused, much more than the other by me mentioned groups. I understand perfectly they want this attention but is this the way?
    I don’t think so.

    There is one rule, advice on Wikipedia I like very much. Don’t write about matters you are involved in yourself and that is here the same. Because there digital aggression to make there fair point leads to very unwished situations. Just like this UCoC in combination with a total incompetent conflict management will do. Leading to unwished situations.

    I think the UCOC will lead exacte to exacte the opposite than where it was meant for.
