Report comments[edit]

Hello Léonie Butler, Lfurter, MMelvaer, and Sarah magnan! Thanks so much for your work on the project and on this detailed interim report. It's great to learn more about what the team has been doing and to read through all of the well-documented event pages. It's really interesting to read about your Heroines and Gender Redirect workshop models. Often times people focus so much on the quantity of content created, and it's refreshing to see such a focus on the improvement of quality. It seems that combining the lecture with group work on a very specific topic or even article has been very successful. Additionally, the discussions, group size, and layout of the room also support a more social and welcoming atmosphere.

It's great to hear that you are focusing on expanding your network and audience, making "encounters between different circles of interest to get to know each other by bringing the cultural/artistic sectors in political/associative venues and vice versa." How have you been able to balance both widening your network while deepening and maintaining new connections? In your metrics you note that more than a third of participants have stayed active after an event, which is really good statistic in the Wikimedia movement. What do you think contributes to that?

Thank you again for this report. We are looking forward to the rest of the project! Cheers, Alex Wang (WMF) (talk) 16:24, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
