Fundraising translation feedback
I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.
To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback for Dutch using This Link
Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.
Thank you for contributing to the Learning Pattern library!
Hi Sandra, I just uploaded the Learning Pattern you created in Wikimania. Thanks for sharing knowledge that way! You can see the pattern by clicking here. Can you please review it and edit any mistakes I may have made? It would also be great to expand the Learning Pattern a bit, for example, adding details on how to identify promising articles. Thanks again for contributing! Best, MCruz (WMF) (talk) 22:30, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Please take our short survey and share your experience during the campaign.
Your involvement in Wiki Loves Open Data
I noticed that you are involved in the Wiki Loves Open Data initiative, on behalf of PACKED vzw. Hence, I would like to draw your attention to the StrepHit IEG proposal: one of its goals is to invite Open Data organizations to donate their data through a standard procedure (cf. task T10.4 and this section).
Could you please have a look at the proposal? It would be ideal if you could endorse and/or join it via the blue buttons.
Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Feedback Netherlands the World Exchange Platform requested
In the past, you've expressed an interest in the project The Netherlands and the World. As part of the project, the Netherlands and the World Exchange Platform went online in April 2017. A few months later, we would now like to collect some feedback on the platform:
- If you’ve signed up on the platform but never got around to using it, or if you looked at the platform but didn’t sign up, we would like to hear about that.
- If you’ve never heard of the Netherlands and the World Exchange Platform before, we would like to hear about that too.
- In general, we are also interested to get feedback about the platform itself. So, whether you’ve already had a look at it, or just learned about it from this email, we would appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to browse the website and share with us your thoughts on its purpose, the available functionality, the layout, things that you’re missing that should be there, suggestions, etc.
Feel free to share your thoughts on my talk page, this mailing list or email me directly if you don’t want to share your thoughts in public. Your feedback will be invaluable to help us decide how to move forward with the Netherlands and the World Exchange Platform.

Invitation to participate in Universal Code of Conduct survey - WikiWomen's User Group
(You are receiving this message as you signed your interest to participate as part of the WikiWomen's User Group)
Hello, my name is Mervat Salman, a UCoC Facilitator, Trust and Safety team.
As you know, the WMF Board of Trustees ratified the Universal Code of Conduct early in February. That's the beginning; the policy itself cannot be used if the enforcement pathways are not defined. The implementation and enforcement of the UCoC requires the continuous cooperation to define clear definitions of enforcement pathways and processes. This needs to be done in a way that does not contradict with the internal bylaws and codes of conduct currently in place, but rather to support them and complement their deficiencies, if any.
In this phase of the process, we would like to invite you to share your ideas, thoughts and concerns about the UCoC implementation, reporting and enforcement pathways using this survey:
Notice: This survey will be conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement <https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/UCoC_Affiliates_Survey_Privacy_Statement>.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

We wish to learn more about how editors discover and use tools and hopefully come up with related products or services that meet your needs and the needs of people like you. I would like to request an hour to interview you for whatever time works best for you. Let me emphasize that I don't wish or intend to interfere with your day or waste your time.
