Talk:Wikimedia movement affiliates
up to date?
- @Effeietsanders: Oops, I missed this note until now. Thanks, it seems that no one has come along the page to remark for translation since these were removed from the template this page draws from. They are not on the templated page. JAnstee (WMF) (talk) 00:40, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Proposal - make this the default talk page for all subpages
At Special:PrefixIndex/Wikimedia_movement_affiliates/ there are 324 subpages of this page, each of which have their own talk page. Most talk pages are blank and inactive. Some of them have discussions. I propose that all of these subpages redirect to here by default, and that anyone making new subpages should by default send the talk page here.
The problem that this would address is lack of centralized discussion. If this were the main talk page, then general discussion about Wikimedia movement affiliates could happen here. This page is high traffic for meta, getting 10,000 views a month. Wikimedia affiliates collectively have perhaps two hundred thousand members, many of whom might want to ask a question sometime or watch conversation.
If we do not have a central board then there is no obvious place to ask questions and also no one single place where people can subscribe for updates.
I think that Wikimedia Foundation staff created most of these subpages, perhaps with semi-automation.
Auto-generating subpages seems to be a systemic problem in meta which is making for weird communication problems which are nonexistent in other Wikimedia projects. Maybe there should be a general rule to centralize discussion to mainpages. Blue Rasberry (talk) 21:57, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
