Good idea about participant data reporting edit

Often it happens that some number of Wikimedia community volunteers participates in an important policy or governance process. Elections are one case, public calls for comment are another common example, and there are many other situations were data about the group is helpful.

You had a great proposal at Talk:Wikimedia Foundation elections/2022/Stats. I do not recall seeing anyone ever propose this, but in my view and now that I see it, it seems like an obvious solution to many concerns. You propose that there is a list of issues, data which inform the issues, and standard reporting of community characteristics. I like the idea! Thanks.

I am unsure where to go from here. The WMF board member who I think is most active in discussing future election reform is https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Shani_(WMF) if and when there was more to say about this or just a clear request, I think she would receive the feedback. I would support you if you approached her with your idea. Thoughts? Bluerasberry (talk) 17:29, 5 October 2022 (UTC)Reply
