What will you bring to the board humanly speaking?
What skills will you bring to the board?
நான் ஏன் உங்களுக்காக வாக்களிக்கக்கூடாது?
நம்பிக்கையையும் புரிந்து கொள்ளலையும் பற்றி
Wikimedia movement knows, for a few years, trust and understanding issues. Those issues have been the source of many tensions, conflicts and problems. Do you believe that this is an issue that should be handled by WMF Board? If no, why? If yes, why? Schiste (talk) 08:26, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
Child protection and the WMF
As a member of the Oversight team on the English Wikipedia, and as someone who has dealt with child protection cases on enwp, I have concerns regarding how child protection and reporting of serious issues such as child pornography are currently handled by the WMF. I am concerned about the lack of clear directives from the WMF on how such matters should be dealt with across the board and, as a volunteer, I'm concerned about the legal ramifications of volunteers handling such material. As I see it, we have no visible policies as to how the WMF handles stuff like this. I believe we really should have a formal central point of contact at the WMF for such matters, but I'd like to know more about the candidates' position on these matters - Alison ❤ 00:18, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
Anonymous editing of Wikipedia biographies
Given the recent Qworty incident on the English Wikipedia, and prior cases of anonymous defamatory editing such as that performed by Johann Hari, do you personally consider real-name registration rather than anonymous editing, flagged revisions, or some combination of both (e.g. biography reviewers being required to identify to the foundation), a desirable approach to prevent vandalism, bias and anonymous defamation in Wikipedia biographies of marginally notable people?

Foundation wiki coup and multilingual communication
What do you think of the recent foundation: wiki coup which left the wiki without management?  If you're a current board member, did the board discuss it and why didn't you say anything? What should the board do to e.g. update wmf:Wikimedia:Welcome and ensure a multilingual communication from the WMF, which used to happen on that wiki and is now impossible?

Dozens WMF private wikis and "no place to work together"
The WMF has about 20 distinct private wikis plus a number of other internal private discussion venues and resources including mailing lists and Google Docs. However, it refuses to include volunteers in any of them and is closing Internal-l and internal wiki, a policy summarised as "no place to work together" (between WMF staff and volunteers including chapter members). Do you think the WMF needs this seclusion and fragmentation, and what can the board do about it? --Nemo 07:19, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
What will you leave to the WMF after being in the board?
If you're elected, what is the WMF/board going to gain that will survive your (last) term? --Nemo 07:35, 26 May 2013 (UTC) P.s.: I asked the two specific questions above because someone had to, but IMHO this is the question. "What imprint" perhaps is the word, feel free to correct my English.
