outreach to potential Board candidates?Edit

Thanks for the summary of lessons from past election outreach. Any insight for how to recruit more candidates during this phase? Things that community networks can do? –SJ talk  18:37, 22 June 2021 (UTC)

Hi SJ, thanks for asking. The facilitators are promoting the Call in many channels, on our own, with the help of the Election Volunteers (who are doing awesome work) and with the help of some affiliates. As this is the first time this is done at all and the Call is still going, we are still exploring ways to encourage potential candidates. We are yet not having final insights to share. We would really appreciate any efforts by the communities themselves to promote the Call, to encourage potential candidates to make a wide array of diverse candidates from all backgrounds and communities available for the election. I hope this helps, please get back to me if you would like to know more. DBarthel (WMF) (talk) 21:35, 22 June 2021 (UTC)

KuratoriumswahlenübersetzungenEdit

Moin!
Ich habe da was für übersetzt, nämlich die Wahlberechtigungsvoraussetzungen, aber eine Zeile ging nicht, weil die vollkommen schwammig und nichtssagend war. Ich habe diesbezüglich auf der Disk nachgefragt, aber bislang keine Antwort erhalten, obwohl ich eigentlich denke, die, die das so wischiwaschi und uneindeutig formuliert haben, müssten eigentlich wissen, was sie gemeint haben und das klar stellen können. Weißt Du das eventuell? Oder hast Du einen direkteren Draht zu jemand, der das aufklären könnte? Ich halte ja schon die Originalformulierung auf Englisch für völlig unverständlich und dem Anlass unangemessen, kenne andererseits auch das, nennen wir es mal zurückhaltende, Antwortverhalten bei Fragen aus der Community. Grüße vom Sänger ♫(Reden) 09:22, 29 June 2021 (UTC)

Hi Sänger, danke für die Ansprache. Die Formulierung gibt es in der Form seit den Boardwahlen 2008 und wie bei so vielen dieser Formulierungen ist sie wohl immer weiter mitgeschleppt worden. Ansprechpartner dafür ist das aus Freiwilligen bestehende Elections Comitee, falls du noch weitere Punkte bezüglich der Formulierungen hast, wende dich am besten direkt an sie, den jetzigen Punkt gebe ich weiter.

TranslationEdit

Hi DBarthel, the Portuguese is ready, but I am not sure if it is live. Do I hve to press sometbing? Thanks. Rui Gabriel Correia (talk) 20:44, 6 September 2021 (UTC)

@Rui Gabriel Correia: - no, everything is absolutely perfect. Thank you for doing this on such a short notice. Great help! DBarthel (WMF) (talk) 20:47, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
My pleasure. Thanks for confirming. I am struggling to link the page on interwiki in the "In other languages" section. Not sure why it is not loading. Rui Gabriel Correia (talk) 20:51, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
I understand now. The explanation is: it is not necessary :) . Right after translation there is nothing you have to take care about any more. Thanks for your support! DBarthel (WMF) (talk) 20:57, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
