Food gracious, no! Being a professor and the WMF supposedly an educational organization I cannot fathom why so many in the movement care so little about quality issues. However, that said, bringing quality up would probably mean at least poking at some sacred cows. For example, there is no way we can get critically-important articles or anything requiring specialized knowledge up to snuff without changing how people get credited and how it can or cannot be changed in the future. I would be in favor of a system that once checked, the article goes to pending changes. An example... Ive been asked several times to rework the Mexico City article as it is way to long with too many unnecessary details. But I will not touch it because I know if I do, I will get a lot of flak and in days, if not hours, the article will be right back to where it was. That is a waste of my time. "Anyone can edit" needs to be rethought.Thelmadatter (talk) 03:06, 12 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
Thanks Leigh. I'm aware we don't have an answer to the problem yet but feel (probably because we can't presently see an answer) the problem itself has been elided. I believe we should continue to emphasise the problem.
I've moved my first question to the all-candidates questions: Affiliate-selected Board seats/2016/Questions#Making the WMF a membership organisation and moved your answer with it, as I think this probably deserves the attention of all candidates. --Anthonyhcole (talk) 03:16, 12 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

Questions to be addressed[edit]

Hi, I've been reading through the answers to the questions that have been posed by the community, and I note that there are several long-standing questions that you have not yet responded to. Knowing where the candidates stand on a variety of issues is important when deciding who to vote for, and if you have not done so recently it would be worth reviewing the questions that still remain to be answered.

What to do in these cases?[edit]
