2015-11-08 Thread Ziko van Dijk

Of course it is the committee to have its say about Wikimania. If I understand it well, the main problem was that the bid period was from August to November 2015, and some groups were working on their bids. They feel that they could have saved a lot of work if they had known before. Kind regards

I very much agree with Fae on this. Certainly, some people will always post more than others, e.g. because they have a specific task in the movement. But often I wonder whether a post on this list was really necessary. For example, sometimes it makes sense not to react immediately to another post
