I wanted to share with you some changes in WMIL. This weekend, after more
than 6 years of service, Michal Lester will conclude her position as WMIL's

way they were pleading for donations. They made it sound like they might be
shutting down if we the general public didn't donate."
Has there been any research into how common it is for

I agree. Thanks and good luck! (What does "ED" mean, though?)
Just wanted to acknowledge your email and let you know I'll respond in full
as soon as possible.

I also felt like how Benjamin's dad did.. If one is viewing using the
mobile app, the red banners fill the entire screen and one has to scroll
down to get to the content. I think the fund solicitation ads need to be
much less loud than it's now..

Hk Itzik, thanks for letting us know. I also want to thank Michal, it was a

Sadly I had a similar experience only this weekend.
We were enjoying a going away lunch with friends who are out of the
country over Christmas, when one of them asked about Wikipedia's
problems, knowing that I often volunteer time to it. He claimed that
the site was spamming screen-sized pop-up
This discussion comes back every year. Every year we get the same
reassurance that it's being looked into, that we'll try to do better, that
things have been tested, etc.
The reality of the matter is that the alarmist and misleading stuff
*works*. And that it's most probably not going anywhere.

I think the current messages are quite good and clear, the ones I've seen
get better each year.
I don't find the messaging alarmist or misleading. But perhaps subtle cues
can change how they are perceived.
[I also don't usually get this feedback from people outside our community
(last: in 2012),
I've heard this asked this by 3-4 people recently
* A family member (checking in to make sure things were ok)
* A local grantmaker (who likewise has supported WP at least once before)
* A couple undergrads (on phones, asking eachother what to do if WP went
down during finals)
All worried either
Yeah, I've been getting this feedback each year for at least the past years
too. I am pretty sure that most of the people who were alarmed and told me,
did not thoroughly read the message, but mostly picked up on cues. It may
be that I have more of such people in my circle of acquaintances than
Michal, many thanks for your service. I remember when we talked online
several years ago. Best wishes for your next steps, and I hope that you
will keep in touch.
Itzik, thank you for sharing this news.

You have been a true ambassador of the movement and thank you for all the years
of service. It was pleasure meeting you at GLAMWIKI2018 in Tel Aviv last year.
I know you will be around the movement and until we meet again, all my best
wishes for your upcoming endeavour.
Thank you Michal for your years of service. My favourite memory is having
an ice cream with you at GLAMWIKI in Tel Aviv last year.
I hope to still see you around the movement.
