We need your feedback on a tool from the Wikimedia Summit edit
Hi! I'm contacting you as one of the participants in the Wikimedia Summit 2022, to kindly ask for your feedback through a 5-10 minute survey to evaluate 'Baserow' (note: the survey is on a Google form).
Baserow was a tool through which participants in the Summit co-created a database of Movement Strategy activities. We hope to learn from you how useful it may be to keep using it in the future to help document and connect on Movement Strategy work.

It is online on 12, 14 and 17 May, the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia #IDAHOBIT, with offline events at around 10 locations on 5 continents in the 5-day span as QW2023 Nodes.

I'm afraid that we have been migrating lists of awards to wikidata queries, and not using categories. for example  you could also do a listeria. it's off wikipedia but scales better. regretfully, wikipedia becomes more dysfunctional by the day. Slowking4 (talk) 22:51, 12 July 2023 (UTC)
