Re: [Wikimedia-l] Launch of Wikimedia Affiliates Data Portal

2020-03-07 Thread effe iets anders
Thanks for the update Dimi.

The system seems reasonably flexible (assuming the links can be both
internal and external). There are two things I'd suggest:
- Please track language versions. If multiple languages are available, it
would be nice if they can be connected. It would also be helpful to
identify languages in the report.
- Be generous with the 'other' option. For example, you now only allow
monthly and annual reports. Would you discourage quarterly reports to be
shared? Or three-year reports? I know those may not be required by WMF, but
they may be produced for different purposes. I imagine you would want those
to be shared too?

Best,
Lodewijk

Hello Dumi,

Thanks for the update and teams efforts on this initiative. I have taken a
tour on the portal and it looks really simplified and easy to navigate.
However, I will be on standby for the training session.

Hi Dumi,

This looks interesting, but I’m worried that the WMF is still trying to exclude 
itself from reporting its metrics. Will this new tool also make it easier for 
the WMF to post its reports?

Thanks,
Mike
