Annual plan[edit]

Hi Mike. Would you mind explaining what you mean by "*extremely* bad practice!"? Thank you, Heather Walls (WMF) (talk) 21:26, 6 May 2018 (UTC)

@Heather (WMF): For a metric to be effective, you have to know how to measure it, what the baseline is, have a methodology for increasing that metric, and a forecast of what that can achieve. I can't see that here, all I can see is a vague target. I don't disagree with that target at all, but it sounds like this is something that needs to be researched first, not just a target set - unless I'm missing the more detailed info? The same is true for a number of the other metrics in the plan, so while I was commenting on this one specifically, it is a broader point. I really hope that the WMF can get better at this - particularly since it has experts in assessing metrics on its staff (see the feedback given over the years to affiliates). Thanks.

thank you for your redirect![edit]

Hi there! I want to thank you for that kind re-direct you posted on a red link. You figured out the right page and re-directed the wrong page. Thank you for helping me, my friend! What a nice thoughtful act of support you gave me. KLove (WMF) (talk) 15:58, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

No worries, it was easy to find the link through a quick search, so it was quick to set up the redirect for anyone else looking for it. :-) Hope to see you at Wikimania? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 23:31, 6 June 2018 (UTC)
