It is not only people who speak English as a second language who are likely confused. The confusion comes partly from the fact that we have an ED and some board members saying one thing and official documents submitted to a funder saying something different. These two sources of information about "Wikipedia search" do not appear to be reconcilable.
We then have the partly related issue of low moral among WMF staff. This has led to some people leaving and others taking time off. Many within the foundation do not feel they can speak freely due to potential retaliation from the ED. Many people are therefore being cautious with their words. I agree we need to speak clearly, simply, and openly. We should also invite the Knight Foundation to join this conversation. We need to get a few more perspectives on the issues in front of us. -- James Heilman MD, CCFP-EM, Wikipedian The Wikipedia Open Textbook of Medicine www.opentextbookofmedicine.com _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
