harassment is good or bad. It is obviously bad. We should discuss the
procedure and bring material for a real change.

We should definitely rethink our way of saying “welcome”. :)
I don’t know if Lisa is on the list, but - if she is - welcome to
Wikimedia. We, volunteers, tend to be passionate about projects and
complain about almost everything. Most of the time, with good intentions,

I really hope that the reason for de-recognition of any affiliate is not
that “the other side expressed a contrary position”.
We have seen it in Brazil too, as others already started to link the dots.
There where two groups in conflict. Instead of solving the problem, or even
The way AffCom deals with certain situations is clearly not transparent
enough for the Wikimedia environment.
We have a situation in Brazil that remains unsolved and Affcom wouldn’t
even follow their own ways of dealing with it.
Here is a clearer example:
What are the steps now?
It is clear to me and others that this strategy initiative could not reach
new faces, especially those more engaged with editing. Or they were
reached, but not selected for some reason.
In case it is desired, whoever is in charge of this process should start
Congrats from Brazil.
Hope for a community of editors and contributors as diverse as the Board

Those are excellent news!
I wonder if there are any plans on working on less rich countries. They
usually have less internet access and would benefit from that.
Wikipedia Zero has just expired in Angola and I can’t imagine a best way to
replace that source of knowledge withou having to deal with

On Portuguese Wikipedia Facebook page, I am receiving lots of messages
asking if Wikipedia Zero is over. One of them stated that they were told by
the internet service provider that WMF has cancelled the program.
Do we have any official statement about it? I learnt that WZ would end this
I am pleased to report that Portuguese Wikipedia reached 1 Million articles
created yesterday. 
Community voted for a commemorative logo and set a sitenotice banner with a
statement mentioning the milestone. 
Thanks to the volunteers and supporters!
That’s very unexpected. I actually have been trying to talk with WMF plenty
of times and waiting and waiting for a word from you. Though you probably
received lots of emails from me and others, I don’t think I have a single
email from you guys about this in my inbox
I have literally implored you
Congratulations to the approved ones and thanks Galio for so many years of

Maybe you should first discuss any contest like this with community and
then come with a suitable idea.
Your willingness to invest on this is something valuable and should be used
on a project that fits with WMF goals.

For a long time, we saw a few chapters with too little or no activity in

Wow... the increasing donation on Latin America is really impressive!
Is there any specific country that helped more on that?

WereSpielChequers, the different varieties of Portuguese is not the problem
here. It actually hasn't been a problem for a while. :)))
James and Adele, I am sincerely happy to know that WMF is not only aware of
it but also applying and thinking about measures to solve the problem.

With all due respect to Lila's work, but IIRC before she started working
for Foundation, it was said that the technology background was very
important, but communication could be a problem. That may have been
disregarded because the choice was already made or because volunteers
