The Wikimedia Foundation Communications department would like to hear your thoughts on the monthly Wikimedia Foundation metrics and activities meetings. Please share your thoughts under the appropriate topic header.

Why do you attend, watch, or otherwise follow this meeting?Edit

  • To learn about the general goings-on at the Wikimedia Foundation and to better understand the thinking of WMF staff. --Gnom (talk) Let's make Wikipedia green! 09:48, 22 March 2018 (UTC)[]
  • Some necessary information is sometimes buried in the slides here (for instance new and departed Wikimedia Foundation staff, which is necessary to know who you need to work with, especially for chapter and software volunteers). Some of it could be published regularly and timely elsewhere (same example). --Nemo 06:16, 26 April 2018 (UTC)[]

What do you like about this meeting?Edit

What would you like changed about this meeting?Edit

  • Less "pleasantries" and more "real talk", maybe? --Gnom (talk) Let's make Wikipedia green!
  • Less self-serving trumpeting which makes the show look like a self-promotion stage for the politically connected. (I'm describing what made me stop watching the videos long time ago. It might have already changed.) --Nemo 06:22, 26 April 2018 (UTC)[]
