User group countEdit

Hello MKaur, the usergroup template only lists 134 affiliates, but I see you just updated the count to 135. What was the most recent one? –SJ talk  20:46, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi SJ, Its Wikimedia Community User Group Sudan. -MKaur (WMF) (talk) 22:00, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Inquiry about registration of Igbo Wikimedians User Group as Igbo Wikimedians OrganizationsEdit

Hi MKaur, Trust you've been safe. We're in the process of registering Igbo Wikimedians User Group as a Not for Profit in Nigeria and the Cooperate Affairs Commission rejected the name ending in User Group as it doesn't meet the Not for Profit name registration requirements.

We intend to instead try registering it as "Igbo Wikimedians Organizations"

So I would like to find out if this will affect us as a User Group. Suggestions, advice and guidance on how to go about this name structure will be appreciated.

Help needed over comments (Question) from a member of the Affiliations Committee.Edit

Hi Manavpreet I hope this find you well. Am writing to you to ask help or clarity over the comments made on Open Heritage Foundation's talk page by Basak, we tried to reach out and find out if it is possible to share with us where the use of trademark is so we rectify it. As it stands, the group hasn't used WMF's trademark since it hasn't received a UG status. Best regards Communication office. --Isaac Kanguya✌ (talk) 06:46, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi Isaac Kanguya✌, The Open Heritage Foundation had earlier introduced them as a thematic organization which was later rectified. Basak wanted to ask for this rectification, but somehow missed checking the page updates. There are no trademark concerns. -MKaur (WMF) (talk) 19:31, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
