Gossip[edit]

It's about time that WMHK was deregistered. The scandal of the Wikimania accounts still hangs over them. Tony (talk) 09:44, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

I think it would be great to discuss Wikimedia chapter challenges. This page is not ideal for presenting criticism against individual groups. If someone identified a place for conversation about HK or other chapter concerns then I am sure that many people would participate in the conversation. I am not aware of any available forum, and the lack of a place for conversation to work through problems only increases tension over the years. I appreciate that Wiki HK managed an excellent Wikimania. Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:44, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

A small suggestion for future communication[edit]

I was notified of a new topic on the talk page of a user group I am a member of. My initial response was concern as I thought the group was not in compliance and slated for de-recognition. It was quite alarming. I understand the desire to communicate this news to as many people as possible. I also understand that this message was well intended and probably took many hours to write and share. Please do take care in being clear when posting automated messages that bury the lede - or in this case outright omit it. A quick, single line at the top of the message to the effect of, "This group is not currently non-compliant, the following message is general information." would have make it more clear to readers that the group is (or is not) under consideration for de-recognition. Perhaps even a link to information on where to find out what groups are under consideration would be helpful. Thank you for your time. Ckoerner (talk) 17:09, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

+1. thought it was odd to see this posted to Wikimedia UK's talk page on here (not a method guaranteed to get anyone's attention, if the communication is important!) Chris Keating (The Land) (talk) 19:42, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

Basepage[edit]

Wikimedia movement affiliates/Protocol for noncompliant Wikimedia movement affiliates has as subpage Derecognition Process Mapping and then there is this page. It would be useful for the FAQ and map to have the same basepage. --Nemo 21:38, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
