Thank you for the diverse input. A few points to Razmy's proposal. I have trouble with suggestions that state "we can ensure diversity by creating regional seats". First, why these regions? What does each region seat represent? Potential readers? Actual readers? Human population at large? Why not number of active editors? Without deciding that we do not know whether the regions you suggest make any sense.
Second, why regions at all? How do regions ensure that we have a diversity in age? Sex? Gender? Wealth? Religion? Cultural background? Educational background? Diversity has not only the aspect of being from a specific region, there is so much more to that. Also, the increase in number of Trustees makes the Board more expensive and more ineffective. I would be rather unhappy with such an increase. It is hard enough to get anything done at the current size. I would appreciate any proposal that reduces the number of Trustees, not increases it.
