Page design

Hi. I like what Foundationwiki and Commons each do, albeit a little differently from one another, in that they have some filler space at the top of the main page. Meta-wiki's content seems to be too high up on the page. Killiondude (talk) 05:57, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Major missing mainpage item

{{editprotected}} Something like the Community Consultation (i.e., a list of problems identified for WMF's future growth and survivability) was produced from the WMF board late last year, posted a bit late (Jan.) to wikimediafoundation.org by adding it to the annual report or whatever it's called, and copied to somewhere on Meta and given a talk page where people can respond to the numerous line items on it. After having seen it once, I can't find it again, either on here or on wikimediafoundation.org. This should be located, and put immediately under the Community Consultation item on the Meta main page. It covers much more than the Consultation, and much of it is crucial (both as to what it outlines, and perhaps as to what it does not, some might think). It definitely needs a larger and more diverse community response.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  13:06, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Good idea. I remember seeing what you are talking about also but after spending the better part of an hour looking for it, I cannot find it either. Reguyla (talk) 03:51, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
Do you mean Communications/State of the Wikimedia Foundation? Nemo 07:48, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
No, though that would be a good item to add, too (appears to be late 2014 product added here in early 2015). The one I'm thinking of looked similar, was authored late 2015, and updated in early 2016 with missing material on threats/challenges faced by WMF. I'll go look in the Foundation site again.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  04:12, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
@Nemo bis, @Heather (WMF), @Reguyla:. Found it: wmf:2015-2016 Annual Plan, especially wmf:2015-2016 Annual Plan#Wikimedia Foundation Risks (the part that was added later). Meta's commentable copy is at Wikimedia Foundation Annual Plan/2015-16 (and Wikimedia Foundation Annual Plan/2015-16#Wikimedia Foundation Risks as to the key section). This should be prominent on both wikimediafoundation.org's and Meta's main pages (as the wikitext document, not just this PDF).  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  09:06, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you and I agree it should be listed on both those sites. Reguyla (talk) 17:53, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
