Current appointed members table[edit]

Dear Jalexander-WMF - as primary editor on this page I assume you're the person to suggest this to:
Going on the precedent of the equivalent page in 2015, I thought this 2017 election should also have a table listing the current, appointed, members. I've taken the the information from the Grants:APG/Funds_Dissemination_Committee#Members page - but that page does not list languages for (Gtbiv, Bishdatta, and Cande_laspe) so I guessed for them - it's not a question of whether they do speak those languages, but whether I missed other languages that they know :-) I suggest this table be added to the page, after the instructions and before the first candidate, as per 2015.

The five individuals elected will join these members appointed to the Funds Dissemination Committee:


Languages Location
Anne Clin (Risker) en-N, fr-2 Canada
Garfield Byrd (Gtbiv) en-N USA
Bishakha Datta (Bishdatta) hi-N, en-N India
Candelaria Laspeñas (Cande_laspe) es-N, en-4 Argentina

Hey Liam, I went ahead and added this. Thanks for the suggestion. :) Joe Sutherland (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 22:32, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Recent edits[edit]

The "recent edits" link below the section headers currently links to the English Wikipedia. I find that odd, as some of us are mainly active on other language versions. Nothing to be super worried about, just something to further improve :-) --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 03:51, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

The link was removed by [1]. I think originally the link was to luxo:, which could now be restored since it's working well since a year or so. Nemo 09:02, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
