Hi Folks,

There is a proposal initiated by the Wikimedia Foundation to call ourselves
the "Wikipedia Network", "Wikipedia Movement" or simply "Wiki".

I strongly suggest that the Foundation should allocate time & resources
with the Wikimedia community fully involved in *identifying and resolving
the real problem *that brought the idea of creating the brands department.
These include opening communication channels like what was done in our
strategy 2030 process to ask recommendations on how we strengthen the
Wikimedia identity (like having online and offline promotion of the
"Wikimedia" identity)

I was puzzled how this Brand project was not fully integrated in the 2017
and 2018-2020 Movement Strategy Process.

But hey, we can do a counter proposal and offer a better and more
acceptable solution to this.
