If the format was compiled before Trump was elected, then this argument is 
either irrelevant or becomes that the foundation must avoid offending 
politicians in power by changing public statements to be uncontroversial at the 
time of publishing.

Subject: Re: [Wikimedia-l] More politics: "WMF Annual Report"

So my 2p:

The issue for me is the selection of topics more than the presentation of each 
topic.

I'm not concerned that the document's written differently and with different 
standards of sourcing to a Wikipedia article. That's fairly natural.

But selecting 2x refugees and climate change in a list of 10 things  (half of 
which are internally focused anyway) and those angles on things - that does 
read like someone decided that the WMF annual report was the place to give 
Donald Trump a slap. Which isn't what that document is there for.

Yes our mission is political in the broad sense - and as Trump doesn’t seem to 
believe in the concept of facts or truth, one could argue  our mission is 
fundamentally anti-Trump. But that doesn't mean we should aim pot-shots at him.

plausible that this refers to an increase of 170 million in *weekly* mobile 
pageviews (for context, mobile web pageviews on all Wikimedia sites for 
December 2016, normalized to 30 days, were 7.4 billion, up 11.6% from December 
2015 <https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Wikimedia_
Product&oldid=2399861#Reading_Audience>).
Even so, there are some details of the calculation that I'm still curious 
about, but in any case, the increase in mobile pageviews remains a real and 
notable trend worth calling out (cf. https://commons.wikimedia.org/ 
wiki/File:Wikimedia_mobile_pageviews_year-over-year_comparis
on_(since_May_2013).png ).

BTW, the linked report card is deprecated, as one may infer from the fact the 
last numbers date from August 2016.  Here is a current pageviews dashboard 
maintained by the WMF Analytics team: https://analytics.

 (click "Break Down by Site" to restrict to mobile views).
