Fundraising and Funds Dissemination to 2011-12 Fundraising and Funds Dissemination process, including all subpages[edit]

The historical 2011-12 process is currently occupying a space that would be much better occupied by a page detailing the current situation on fundraising and funds dissemination, including useful links and history. --Yair rand (talk) 05:29, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Fundraising to Wikimedia Foundation Fundraising team[edit]

The page currently covers the WMF team. It would be useful to have a page documenting Wikimedia fundraising in general and how it works at Fundraising, and the page for the team could be more unambiguously about the team, with links to other WMF teams for context. --Yair rand (talk) 05:53, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

The move would be inconsistent with the naming of other pages for other WMF departments that share responsibility in areas. The extension of that logic would be that both communications and community engagement undergo similar moves? Seddon (WMF) (talk) 12:18, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
@Seddon (WMF): Hm, good question. We have some fairly inconsistent naming already: compare Wikimedia Foundation Executive Director, Wikimedia Foundation Advancement department, Wikimedia Foundation/Talent and Culture, Legal, Community Resources, Community Tech. Does the WMF make a firm distinction between "teams" and "departments"? If so, I think the teams could be moved to this system, leaving redirects behind where appropriate. Is there a central list of WMF teams? Teams/Wikimedia Foundation teams/List of Wikimedia Foundation teams are redlinks. --Yair rand (talk) 22:55, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Surveys to Survey Support Desk[edit]

(Pinging @Nemo bis and EGalvez (WMF):, who commented regarding the title on the talk page.) The title used in the content of the page is "Survey Support Desk" and I don't think the length will be an issue. The page "Surveys" should doing something else really. ("Survey help" could work if length is really expected to be an issue, but the page's own label should reflect the title, imo.) --Yair rand (talk) 01:07, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
