Foundation board election questions.[edit]

Moved to Board elections/2007/Candidates/WarX/questions.


I think now I realize what you asked me. "discussion" is intended to give a link to a question page for you from voters, however its variable is now changed to indicate a particular page on meta, so you needn't care about that as for English version.

By the way, Could you please help standardize the template using same variable names with English version? I tried to fix and update your polish version presentation, and then find it very hard for me. The polish version was designed last year and hard for me to update. Thank you for your cooperation. --Aphaia 19:04, 10 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]


Please activate your wiki mail on meta. Or being unconfirmed, you may lose your candidacy.

Also please add Board elections/2007/Candidates/WarX/questions to your watchlist and try to check it periodically.

I also wanted to ask you to see if you could answer more questions. I am seriously considering endorsing you, as you seem an excellent candidate who would add diversity to the board. Eluchil404 02:17, 18 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Questions for the Wikipedia Signpost[edit]

Hi! My name is Ral315, and I'm the editor-in-chief of the Wikipedia Signpost, a weekly newspaper on the English Wikipedia. I'm sending out an optional questionnaire that I hope you'll respond to. These questions will be published in next week's issue, and hopefully translated into many languages and copied to the Meta-Wiki prior to the election. (So, if you speak multiple languages, it'd be fantastic, though certainly not required, if you'd be willing to translate your answers into any languages you speak fluently.)

There's no word limit on any of these questions, but I suggest that brevity (maybe about 300-400 words per answer) is best. If at all possible, answers should be submitted by 16:00 UTC on Monday, June 25 (though late responses will also be accepted).

I'm posting these to your talk pages because they don't really fit well on question pages (since many will repeat questions you've already answered). You can reply to me by e-mail, or at my English Wikipedia, English Wikinews or Meta talk pages.

Thanks again for answering these, and good luck in the elections.

Sincerely, Ral315

Wikivoyage logo selection process[edit]

Hello, WarX. Because we are not able to use the logo selected for Wikivoyage in 2012, there is a process underway to choose another design. Both new and previously submitted designs are eligible for submission by their creators. Since you submitted at least one design to the last process, I wanted to let you know. Please see Wikivoyage/Logo 2013 and Logo selection procedure for the rules of submission. If you have any questions, you are welcome to come by my talk page. Thank you! --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 18:36, 15 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]
