對所有候選人的提問 - 針對單一候選人,而非所有候選人的提問

聲明

在2018年北美洲維基會議中,我被一名德國影片製作者訪問。我就維基媒體應該增加對南營國家的支援以增強連接。這會增加我們的用戶群,也使滿足維基媒體使命宣言邁向正確的一步。

  • The Strategic Working Groups of Partnership and Capacity are keys to the future to keep all Wikimedia projects relevant and increased focus in needed.
  • Continued growth is vital to create a thriving movement. The technical obstacles to mobile readership should be overcome as our resources are limited.
  • During the 2018 WikiConference North America, I was interviewed by a German vlogger. I said that Wikimedia should increase support to the Global South to improve access. It would be an incremental improvement in our user base. This would be a step in the correct direction to fulfill Wikimedia's Mission Statement.

This is my final statement. Thank you for all of the translations.
