  • Have a process determined by affiliates collectively. There is no good reason to exclude affiliates for two main reasons. Firstly, we have a significant decentralisation (regions, hubs) movement which affects mainly affiliates but almost not online communities. Secondly, affiliates were involved in the MCDC election just a few months ago, affiliates is almost the only one without strong English Wikipedia domination, thus removing this group would be disappointing diversity-wise. I think asking affiliates to come up with the (s)election process is the most sensible way to move forward — NickK (talk) 22:59, 16 February 2022 (UTC)
