Timeliness of publishing resolutions[edit]

(Pinging User:CRoslof (WMF), who occasionally posts resolutions updates on foundationwiki.)

It's been a long time since Board resolutions were regularly published within hours or days of voting, but we currently have nothing more recent than mid-April on the resolutions list. Perhaps someone could do something about this? --Yair rand (talk) 05:38, 2 August 2021 (UTC)

Trustee priorities - not enough focus on wiki tech keeping pace with peers[edit]

Dear team, thank you all for all you do.

Having briefly reviewed strategy, and trustee candidates views of priorities, my own view is that not enough attention is being placed on keeping the user experience (i.e. wiki technology) up to near the state of the art level in commercial practice. If wiki becomes relatively clunky and /or old looking, I fear this will rapidly impact both its credibility and the appetites to engage of both users and editors. It may be that to do this requires significant innovation in partnerships and/or funding.

[P.s. in terms of mission, it is very valuable that wiki does continue strongly, in a world in which other information sources may be increasingly taken over by organisations with questionable/evil motives.].

All best wishes JCJC777 10.00, 27 Aug 2021 [UTC]
