Slightly unrelated. My personal unscientific analysis is that some (or
many) Wikimedia communities lack governance awareness. I don't know what
should be done about that.

The failure wasnt in the election system, the failure was in the lack of
candidates having the global presence that gives people the confidence to
vote for them. The question is how do we raise the global identities of
more candidates and how do we counter the benefits of 20 years of EU/NA
Adding to Andys observation of distribution being majority US centric
projects. How we can learn if there isnt diverse cultural experiences, is

This message is a reminder for folks who might be interested in mentoring a
project as part of the Outreachy program. Now would be the time to express
your interest (see details in this thread above).
So far, we have received interest from 3 projects, and we can fund up to 7
Thank you Mario! I'll ask further there. S

This page is watched by many people working against UPE in various
projects. Many are familiar with large-scale UPE operations. Some of us
already work with tools for automated and semi-automated

I don't get these kinds of arguments.
I'm pretty much equally very active on enwiki + Wikidata + Commons -
which should I chose as my 'resident' project? Most bytes (Commons),
most edits (Wikidata), longest editing time (enwiki) - or something
else? Or language for that matter - most of my

Congratulations to the winners and the participants also !
Further to the ongoing discussions, my idea is as follows :
In this Wikimedia land, a person is the resident of the project s/he/they

Hi Steven :) Good points. I agree with Adam that this is a major energy

Thanks, I didn't spot that page (I was looking on diff and meta). These
are big grants (>$150k/ea - total is $1.36 million), so I think it's
really important that a decent amount of information about their
application and plans is posted on meta, as per the internal Wikimedia
Thanks for the questions. The amounts of the grants and descriptions of
them are in the press release:
We will be sure to add that information to Meta
Thanks for the info, and congratulations to the grantees! I'm trying to

applications or further information on meta - could you point towards

A very good set of candidates and a good work done organizing the election.
