Great idea


A regular bulletin is a great idea, thanks for starting it. I've signed up and hope it will be supported on a permanent basis.

One quick suggestion: to make navigation easier for non-WMF readers, I'd suggest exploring other approaches to categorizing updates instead of relying on categories of the annual plan. For example, from a bystander's point of view it's not obvious why Wikimania is grouped under equity (even if it makes total sense internally).

Agreed with the overall praise and the critiques. The other thing I'd mention is that I'd prefer there not be too much redundancy with the Signpost. "In the news" is something the Signpost already covers (and with editorial independence), so I don't see a need to expend energy on that. Sdkbtalk 19:15, 18 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Hi @Sdkb, thanks for reading and sharing this thought. I agree and think maybe we should be more focussed specifically in the Wikimedia Foundation Bulletin on sharing news stories where the Foundation worked directly to get a mention, connect a wikimedian to a journalist or provided comment. We have seen past requests from users about knowing how the Foundation's external communications team was working with journalists. In terms of effort/energy - there is none required as these articles would be ones that team would have already worked on. We'll think more about a better section title so it does not overlap with the Signpost. मयूर Mayur Paul (WMF) (talk) 13:58, 19 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
This is a really helpful point @AntonProtsiuk (WMUA). We'll explore different ways of grouping / categorising the articles over the next few issues. मयूर Mayur Paul (WMF) (talk) 13:47, 19 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

I wrote an article in the German Kurier (like en wp's Signpost) about this new bulletin and got good feedback, esp. via the thank you function. --König der Vandalen (talk) 12:15, 18 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
