thanks for working on a blog post! If you don't mind, please add a byline, e.g. "XY is .. and lives in .. He's been a contributor to ... since .."--Eloquence 19:09, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
Also, BTW, it's easier for me if the post is not HTML -- the new version of WordPress has a rich text editor, so I can just copy formatted text from one window to another without losing the formatting.--Eloquence 19:19, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
- I'll make those changes now! Unless i'm mistaken, Wordpress also has a HTML window, no? It may call it Raw or something. I'l delete it from here in any case --Skenmy 09:29, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
First I thought I'd offer a thank you for being brave / foolish enough to put your hat in the ring as a candidate for election to the Wikimedia Board of Trustees! - I wonder if you might have any time, interest, and enthusiasm to record a brief 10 / 15 minute audio interview about yourself / the reasons for your candidature / your wiki philosophy etc. etc. ? - I've been promoting a project on the english wikipedia called NotTheWikipediaWeekly - which is a grassroots effort to promote good communications through (semi) regular 'podcasts'.
If you have a couple of moments free, would you mind taking a look at this page and signing up if you're interested! It'd be great to chat with each and every one of you, and I hope you'll be amenable to this idea! Let me know if you've any questions at all, thought perhaps my english wikipedia talk page is the best spot.
The best of luck, and kind regards,

Plannning the 'real world' conversationEdit
Thanks for both your interest and patience in setting up an audio conversation - I'm afraid I've found myself both 'real world' busy, and it took me a moment to figure out what the best way forward in organising these conversations could be.
I've created a 'sign up' sheet over at User:Privatemusings/ElectionDiscussions - which it would be great if you could peruse, and sign up at a suitable time. The times are in 'UTC' (which I gather is the official 'wiki' time) - but if you have any problems converting, there's a seperate section for you to simply drop the appropriate information in. I already have many of you as Skype contacts - but if you haven't forwarded this information so far, you can submit that at this time also.
I'm aiming to publish this podcast on 6th June - and believe (and hope!) that it might raise the profile of the election a little bit, as well as humanising the people behind the screen names a little. Thanks for your willingness to engage with this - head over here as soon as possible, and let's get chatting! cheers, Privatemusings 05:21, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
WM UK v2.0 boardEdit
Hi! Thanks for volunteering for the Wikimedia UK v2.0 board. We've made a page for candidate statements, so please add yours here, and sign the declaration (it's quite long and scary-looking, I know, but being on a board is a serious thing!). The proposed deadline for statements is 13 September, but we'll make a final deadline soon. Good luck! --Tango 02:38, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
Wikimedia UK 2.0 Voting is open :-)Edit
A warm hello to all those signed up as guarantor members of the soon-to-be-rebooted UK chapter! Voting is now open over at meta - there's tons of information online over there, and the mailing list has been very active too. Discussion, comment (and even the inevitable technical gremlins!) are most welcome at the meta pages, otherwise please do send in your vote/s, and tell a friend about the chapter too :-) Privatemusings 22:29, 20 September 2008 (UTC)I'm not actually involved in the election workings, and am just dropping these notes in to help try and spread the word :-) I welcome any or all comment too, but 'election related' stuff really is better suited to the meta pages :-)
Hi Paul. I am a wikimedia brasil volunteer and have signed wikimedia uk mailing as i am interested in exchange experiences on those issues. Here in Brasilia, Brasil`s capital I have presented a project to my daughter`s school (she`s 11 ya), but have had few progress. This is my project: Wikimedia Brasil/Mutirões/Oficinas WikinINDI (pt). If you show curiosity I can tanslate it. Any comments are welcome.
Thanks for attention, hugs, Nevinho 16:28, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
- Certainly, paul. I will be doing the translation so you can make a more accurate appaisal and maybe you can give us tips on the most important content as well as the strongest arguments to convince the directors of schools. Once we have done the work of translation - google help ;) -, you know, I tell you. Hugs Nevinho 09:49, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
