Ah, I see now. This is just some cruel waste of staff and volunteer time:
. You ask for people to
point out issues, even providing a link to Phabricator Maniphest, and then
gaslight them by closing the tasks and telling them that the very obvious
bug is intentional.

The English home page inexplicably has German text at the top. I'm
super-confused how nobody has noticed or fixed this yet, given how
prominent it is on the page. It's also now been there long enough that
Google search results are including it. Woof.

It's very sad that the Wikimedia Foundation Inc. communications department
unilaterally decided to move away from MediaWiki to WordPress. And in the
process, your team made the site a lot less accessible to edits and
changes. Many people, including employees of Wikimedia Foundation Inc. and
volunteers, repeatedly raised objections to this decision to move to
WordPress and they were ignored. I think this type of behavior by the
communications department is really inappropriate, unbecoming, and
inconsistent with Wikimedia's values.

I also agree with Yair Rand that the focus on "Advocacy" is misplaced.

Nice work!

I checked on my own face on the staff page and would like to request two
changes:

Please change my name to "Adam Wight", the longer name was silly.
Also, please change the image to
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Adam_Roses_Wight.jpg , I donno why
it was reset to the missing image.

Thanks,

2018-08-02 Thread Jeremy Lee-Jenkins
I like it. I do feel the Wikimedia foundation is diverging from it's
previous role as custodian of Wikipedia, and becoming a international
advocacy group. I feel this change is welcome and will help develop the
Creative Commons mission beyond just Wikipedia and it's sister sites.

I take it the design of the site is CC-BY-SA-4.0, this is nice since it
allows others to copy the design.

Overall it's an improvement from the previous site.

Warm Regards

Jeremy Lee-Jenkins

Hello,

After many months of work by over 100 individuals around the organization and 
movement, the Wikimedia Foundation's new website soft launched this week!

You can check it out for yourself here (you may need to clear your browser's 
cache):  https://wikimediafoundation.org/


So what comes next?

Throughout this week, the Communications department and core website team will 
be doing final tweaks and quality assurance testing in preparations for 
translations.

Over the coming weeks we will be working with affiliates and contributors 
around the world to make the site in available in Arabic, Chinese, French, 
German, Russian, and Spanish - in addition to the English version soft launched 
today. Once the translations are completed, we will be doing a more public 
announcement regarding the new website and begin more formally implementing 
usage of it.

Additionally, we will be holding office hours in the coming weeks.


What about the old website?

The old website (aka Foundation Wiki) will be given new life in the coming 
weeks as the Wikimedia Foundation Governance Wiki - where it will continue to 
house important documentation for the Wikimedia Foundation like policies, board 
resolutions and minutes, legal documents, etc. Additional information on the 
changes coming to that wiki and the plans for migrating archived content to 
Meta-Wiki will be available in the coming weeks.


What else should I know?

There is a lot of great things about this new website we are excited to share 
with all of you! More information about office hours will available in the 
coming weeks. Until then, we encourage you to take a look and contact me 
directly if you find any bugs, typos, or have any comments.


Thank you!

The Communications department greatly appreciates all of the discussions, work, 
and patience everyone has put into this gigantic undertaking. We are very close 
to the finish line, and today marks a significant step which was only possible 
with the help of the 100+ people involved.

Zack, Katherine, Mel, and Greg),

Hi Gregory,

I just looked quickly at the new site, which is a very refreshing change,
and I'll send later more detailed feedback...

But I must say I really like the leadership page:
https://wikimediafoundation.org/role/leadership/

Not from a design, content or functional point of view, but because I suddenly
noticed that most of the leadership team were women, which made me really
proud. It's so not obvious.

Completely agree. But given that there is no sign of WMF willing to keep
advocacy within its core mission, I would like to know where can we propose
and discuss advocacy areas? There is a number of issues that affect the
work of Wikimedians that would need to be prioritized.
