The Wikimedia Board of Trustees needs diversity to maintain neutrality. I will add new users who respect the Wikimedia rules well without the intervention of mediators or relatives to maintain neutrality and the institution. The steps that must be followed are to add new blood to the institution to renew thought and constructive ideas to expand the institution’s activity and maintain its effectiveness.
