You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

lists of eventsEdit

regional hubs event, June 2022Edit

  • Hubs/Global Conversations June 24-26, 2022
    • There is a lot happening around regional and thematic hubs with different research and planning projects. This event is intended to be a space for sharing and learning between those that are already working on establishing a hub in their context. Participants are invited to share their hub work experiences and learn from each other. Ideally, clear next steps can be mapped out for the future development of hubs.

Participants are also invited to discuss their hub piloting ideas. Some research and planning projects have been completed, which means that it is time to put some ideas into practice. Ideally, the event will help with mapping of considerations and concerns, to inform the future process.

The sessions will take place on Zoom, and will be facilitated and supported by the external facilitation agency Insightpact.

Date + Time:


  • planned to be published by June 10 Based on feedback on the recently published proposed Minimum Criteria for Pilots, program/agenda for the event is being revised.


  • Main language of the event is English
  • We'll provide simultaneous interpretation in Arabic, French, Spanish (for the sessions on June 24 and 25), and Portuguese (to be confirmed for June 25)


  • Opens on June 10 Registration opening postponed, probably opens between June 12 and 15, closes on June 23.
