The New Direction for the Newsletter[edit]

The Movement Strategy and Governance Newsletter (MSG Newsletter) is setup to distribute relevant news and events about the Movement Charter, Universal Code of Conduct, Movement Strategy Implementation grants, Board elections and other relevant topics. It serves as a pathway to help Wikimedians stay involved with the different projects and activities going on within the Movement Strategy and Governance team.

The team is designing new direction for this newsletter to allow adequate quality control and sustainability, as well as, to ensure an effective communication approach to the diverse and global Wikimedia community. We want you to help us shape the extent of the delivery and frequency of these Newsletters and Updates. Our initial proposal is to deliver the traditional full newsletter every quarter across all community portals on all projects due to its low frequency, while short updates on our processes are delivered weekly to MSG Newsletter Subscribers in order to prevent any gaps in communication. However, we still want to know the preference of the community to make final decisions. Kindly leave your comments and votes under the two sections below:

  1. If I wanted to follow a specific discussion closely enough to warrant a weekly newsletter, I might as well watchlist the relevant page myself or subscribe to the relevant threads. An up-to-date central directory of such ongoing discussions would be useful though (what is being discussed where?). And please keep it all short and concise. --HHill (talk) 18:01, 23 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
