Develop charter in wiki way[edit]

Some people are shy about posting drafts and ideas but I recommend developing the discussion in a centralized way to identify both consensus and points which need discussion.

I suggest using this meta page as a place for drafting and that anyone who has their own ideas or draft text post on a subpage here. The reason why posting here is preferable is because there is a wiki custom to hesitate to edit text on individuals' user pages, but wiki custom does encourage editing common text.

If anyone wants both a shared version and an individual version of text on their userpage then I think that is great.

user:The Land publicly shared User:The Land/Movement Charter Input which I think is great, and I also know some other people have draft text but have hesitated to put it out for discussion due to shyness or wanting it to be perfect. I think the wiki community welcomes all ideas and wants lots of them. Thanks Land for posting.

I think it's great that anyone can contribute their ideas about a subtopic of the strategy discussions and post that for everyone to read and think about. I'm not sure why it couldn't be part of the official process, though. I think that encouraging lots of people to think publicly about these topic is a great way to get people involved in the process so that they “own” the process and feel comfortable participating in it.Vexations (talk) 22:11, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

Proposed process for producing the Movement Charter[edit]

Lots of people have ideas and here is one on the table for consideration.

I feel that much is flexible right now. If anyone has proposals or ideas, then post comments here on the talk page or for longer process proposals or essays, write in your own space and link to it from the main page of this document. Blue Rasberry (talk) 12:42, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

Drafting a Movement Charter (Proposal)[edit]

Hi all! I would like to invite you to take a look at our proposal to draft the Movement Charter. We are proposing a way forward by limiting the scope and responsibilities of the IGC to being the Movement Charter drafting group. You can also read some reflections in the talk page on the process of ratification of the Movement Charter, the composition of the Movement Charter drafting group, among others. If you agree on this way forward, you can support it by endorsing it with your signature.

Thoughts on ratification process[edit]

Also I've posted some thoughts on what the ratification process might look like. Chris Keating (The Land) (talk) 08:40, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

Following a SWAN call, a separate page was set up: Movement Charter/Ratification process. Ad Huikeshoven (talk) 12:39, 7 May 2021 (UTC)


The Wikimedia Community would define roles and governance principles in the Wikimedia Movement Charter

I put an image in the article.

It seems like the content about the Movement Charter may become a matter of broader interest than typical pages on Meta-Wiki, and consequently, I think we should have some image to make it more recognizable. I am indifferent about what kind of image there should be, but I think there should be something. I am proposing this icon of a document as a start and encourage anyone else to make other suggestions. Blue Rasberry (talk) 21:02, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
