Call for Candidates: 2022 Board of Trustees Election[edit]

Dear community members,

The 2022 Board of Trustees elections process has begun. The Call for Candidates has been announced.

The Board of Trustees oversees the operations of the Wikimedia Foundation. Community-and-affiliate selected trustees and Board-appointed trustees make up the Board of Trustees. Each trustee serves a three year term. The Wikimedia community has the opportunity to vote for community-and-affiliate selected trustees.

The Wikimedia community will vote to elect two seats on the Board of Trustees in 2022. This is an opportunity to improve the representation, diversity, and expertise of the Board of Trustees.

Kindly submit your candidacy to join the Board of Trustees.

It has been several months[edit]

Dear friends, the last credit that our group holds is Mahmud Hasan Deobandi getting listed on English Wikipedia's OTD (On this day section) on 30 November 2021. Prior to this, the last DYK credit was Askimam that featured on the DYK section on 17 August 2021. We have something to take care of. Possibly over another dozen ITN/DYK credits this year. That said, I'm planning that we all take some time and find over a dozen articles to improve on English and Urdu Wikipedia, and improve them with content and references. Any one ready? ─ The Aafī (talk) 20:38, 28 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Some pages to work on Urdu Wikipedia include: ur:محمد قاسم نانوتوی, ur:رشید احمد گنگوہی, ur:خلیل احمد انبہٹوی, ur:سید احمد بریلوی and ur:محمد یعقوب نانوتوی. ─ The Aafī (talk) 13:37, 3 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I'll work to improve these pages In sha'a-llah. Khaatir (talk) 13:52, 3 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
