Thanks for the input. I had been thinking of this as a meeting where useful 
communications and discussions would happen, but maybe going in the opposite 
direction would have more appeal. I could simply host a casual meetup on Zoom 
an hour before the WMF metrics meeting. There would be no agenda, and the 
environment would be like a coffee house. People could talk about whatever 
Wikimedia-related subjects are on their minds. Does that sound like it would be 
of interest?

I think Rupert has a point.   I would consider getting up at 5AM for a
general conversation but not to be bored.

More loose, fun would be good.   I can't do the end of this month - will be
travelling.

pine, i find the lack of feedback a pity, so let me give at least my
personal impression. "activities and metrics" sounded bureaucratic, and it
sounded like work, not rewarding. the opposite of fun. not sure if a
regular meetup would work better? a hangout? same time all the time. no
matter how many persons are there, maybe once a month? one would need to
think a little about the fun though.

Hi all,

Given the lack of interest and lack of suggestions, I'm going to cancel the
meeting. However, if other people would like to be bold in organizing a
meeting like this, they are welcome to do so.

I would like to encourage interpersonal and social connections among
good-faith Wikimedia content contributors and grassroots project
organizers, and I'd be glad to see suggestions and initiatives which do
this.

Hi all,

The number of people who have participated in the Doodle poll is very low.
Before I give up on the idea of having a community metrics and activities

[Wikimedia-l] August 2018 "Community Metrics and Activities Meeting"

2018-07-30 Thread Pine W
I am attempting this one more time, with more advance notice and some
alterations to the agenda.

Here is a Doodle poll with options for scheduling:
https://doodle.com/poll/iycrgia2wqune63g.

I have created a page on Meta where people who want to include an agenda
item can do so:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Metrics_and_Activities_Meeting

This is an experiment. I hope that a meeting like this can facilitate and
nurture international connections, and I hope that people will be
interested enough to participate.

The meeting platform will be Zoom .
