Staffing issues[edit]

I am sorry that I misunderstood your comment and hence misrepresented you. I have withdrawn that part of my message to Katherine. I may say that I still maintain that there is a general pattern here, but it seems that the case you mentioned is not part of that. Of course I completely agree with the desire to make prudent and well-thought-out requests for resources. Rogol Domedonfors (talk) 11:13, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Thank you --NTymkiv (WMF) (talk) 12:14, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Strategy Alpha[edit]

You may find Grants:IdeaLab/Strategy Alpha interesting. Rogol Domedonfors (talk) 11:42, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes, it is an interesting idea --NTymkiv (WMF) (talk) 12:14, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

"The Board should ..."[edit]

Nataliia, I hope you enjoyed your conference in India. Your presentation on page 22 says Active volunteer engagement with questions and tasks facing the board is welcome! In that light of that comment, which I heartily wlecome as long overdue, I invite you to comment on my question of 19 June at Talk:Wikimedia Foundation Board noticeboard, resulting from a discussion from April. Oh, and the section above, of course! Rogol Domedonfors (talk) 18:49, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Thank you, I have added all the links mentioned to the working page on Board transparency. I'll ping you when I have an answer to share about the future of the noticeboard --NTymkiv (WMF) (talk) 12:14, 14 August 2016 (UTC)


Rogol Domedonfors (talk) 18:43, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes, thank you. I have replied --NTymkiv (WMF) (talk) 19:17, 16 August 2016 (UTC)


Hi Nataliia, hope you had a good visit to northern India. During your talk, I had asked Asaf a question and you were understandably unaware of the context - sorry, but it would have taken a lot of time to explain all of that but I have added a case for transparency here just now, the links might give you some of the context surrounding it. Shyamal (talk) 06:52, 27 August 2016 (UTC)


I appreciate your comment about my "mysterious personality" being a potential obstruction to the serious consideration of the points I attempt to raise. Although I do not think it ought to be an obstruction, it had not occurred to me before that it might be and I will consider, what, if anything, I can do to ameliorate it. So thanks for bringing it to my attention. Rogol Domedonfors (talk) 21:09, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Share your experience and feedback as a Wikimedian in this global survey[edit]

  1. This survey is primarily meant to get feedback on the Wikimedia Foundation's current work, not long-term strategy.
  2. Legal stuff: No purchase necessary. Must be the age of majority to participate. Sponsored by the Wikimedia Foundation located at 149 New Montgomery, San Francisco, CA, USA, 94105. Ends January 31, 2017. Void where prohibited. Click here for contest rules.

Your feedback matters: Final reminder to take the global Wikimedia survey[edit]

Uncontrolled spending increases[edit]

In my essay at User:Guy Macon/Wikipedia has Cancer I make several proposals.

Whether of not you agree with the essay as a whole, would you be willing to propose and/or support the following?

  • Make spending largely transparent, publish a detailed account of what money is being spent on and answer any reasonable questions asking for more details.
  • Limit spending increases to no more than inflation plus some percentage (adjusted for any increases in page views). Are you willing to support any limit at all on spending growth, and if so roughly how much? 10%? 20%? 30%?
  • Build up our endowment and structure the endowment so that the WMF cannot legally dip into the principal when times get bad.

Governance Committee minutes[edit]

Hi. I haven't been able to find any of the minutes from the Board Governance Committee meetings since 2017. Are these still being posted? If so, do you know where I might be able to find them? Thanks. --Yair rand (talk) 21:32, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

Sunday October 25 Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network meeting[edit]

Friendship is a movement value.

The Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network (SWAN) is a developing forum for all Wikimedia movement affiliates to share ideas on the Wikimedia 2030 strategy process. It expands on the model of the All-Affiliates Brand Meeting to help lay some of the groundwork for a future Global Council.

Following up on the September and August SWAN meetings, and June's All-Affiliates Brand Meeting, as well as strategic and outreach topics of mutual concern to all affiliates including the recent proposed changes to the Wikimedia Foundation Bylaws, this month we are meeting on Sunday October 25, and you are all invited to RSVP here.--Pharos (talk) 16:55, 22 October 2020 (UTC)
