[WMF Board of Trustees - Call for feedback: Community Board seats] Meetings with MediaWiki and Wikitech communities edit

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. This call for feedback is to see what processes can we all collaboratively design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees?

In this regard, two rounds of feedback meetings are being hosted to collect feedback from the technical communities in Wikimedia. Two rounds are being hosted with the same agenda, to accomodate people from various time zones across the globe. We will be discussing ideas proposed by the Board and the community to address the above mentioned problems. Please sign-up according to whatever is most comfortable to you. You are welcome to participate in both as well!

Also, please share this with other volunteers who might be interested in this. Let me know if you have any questions. KCVelaga (WMF), 14:37, 21 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request for translation edit

Hello! Would you be able to finish the translation of this announcement? It's 38% done already. I'd like to send it on Thursday or Friday. In short, we're working on the last features of the series of Desktop Improvements. Soon, we'll move to the final tweaks, and we'll ask for more feedback. Thank you!

Reverts pending deletion discussion edit

I see your reverts and will avoid further changes while the deletion is pending. FYI, that template is less than one year old, and was written by someone consulting for one of the commercial wiki farms on the list. It's spam. The sooner we can get started cleaning up, the better.

Altough I have recently added this template to some extensions that are used on Miraheze, I do not have a strong opinion about keeping/deleting the template. I just think it is the correct way to wait until that decision is made. --Ameisenigel (talk) 17:47, 4 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deleted page edit

why was my page deleted MarcAdebesin (talk) 13:36, 22 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Because you have used your talk page to promote yourself. Talk pages are for discussions between users, not for promotion. --Ameisenigel (talk) 17:32, 22 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
