Hi,

You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)Reply

Public Policy/Global Advocacy conversation hour, July 28[edit]

Hi there! I know you were interested in the last community conversation hour so I wanted to make sure to let you know our next ones are held on July 28. We will take a poll to see if participants mind if they are recorded or not. The first half of the call will focus on anti-disinformation (since this was canceled last time) and then we will discuss the human rights impact assessment...the rest is up to you all! All details are on our Meta page. Hope to see you there & please spread the word to others who might be interested. ~ FPutz (WMF) (talk) 09:34, 19 July 2022 (UTC)Reply

Apology: @Sm8900 I am deeply sorry for sharing the incorrect link, especially since the first call was canceled and now you could not attend because of my error. Thanks to the kindness and attentiveness of @Mhawk10 I believe this has been resolved. As I shared elsewhere, thanks to your suggestion future calls will also be recorded...but hopefully you'll make it live because I won't mess up the link and time!

Personal Invitation to the Open Innovation Café volume 2 of Wikimedia Deutschland[edit]

Hello @Sm8900:

We asked – you delivered: After asking all our stakeholders for input through our Open Innovation Café volume 1, a survey and interviews, we have collected the research data and compiled some insightful problem statements. These cover the needs and challenges our Movement faces in innovating in Free Knowledge – quite eye-opening!

Join us at our Open Innovation Café volume 2 to hear about what we have found and how we will use these insights in building a new innovation format for the Wikimedia Movement. Maybe some insights will also be helpful in your community work as well?

When and where will the Open Innovation Café take place? We will be running two identical open cafés, so choose the slot and time zone that suits you best:

This will be done in English and is hosted by the Innovation team at Wikimedia Deutschland. There is no requirement for joining, simply drop in as you are. Looking forward to seeing you there! --Lucia Obst (WMDE) (talk) 09:52, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
