We discussed the value of having a Wikimedia user group overall.

Discussion about Wikidata and potential for vandalism. Continued to discussion about https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Help:QuickStatements and the draft tool https://new-q5.toolforge.org/ for generating QuickStatements about people.

We discussed having a request for the LGBT+ User Group having a representative on the UCoC (Universal Code of Conduct) working group process. We also discussed a process for logging terms and concerns, and think this and resoures to enforce the UCoC should be a part of this project.
