This is a proposed mailing list for topics that concern the Wikimedia Community, but not necessarily the Wikimedia Foundation or its Board or Staff. This is purely a list for feedback from the Wikimedia Community and its many editors.
Example discussion topicsEdit
- Hi, I'm trying to help my wiki in language X grow, do you have any ideas about how to do it?
- Hi Wikimedians, do you think 3RR should be a policy on every wiki? Why or why not?
- Hi other projects, I'm curious to get impressions about how other projects deal with 'difficult users'. We have a user who does X and we don't quite want to block him, because he makes useful edits, but the way he relates to other people is causing friction. any ideas?
- "Silent knowledge", tradition not policy, of various projects; gentle instruction the best practices of the community as a whole and across projects.
