Well, of course if people don't format their pages like an actual translation request and don't ask someone to copy it over... it won't get done. Cbrown1023 talk 19:31, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

Great minds think alike then, I guess. ;-) Great job cleaning up Meta-Wiki, btw. Cbrown1023 talk 20:22, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

"I don't know why some staffers don't have an account here"

[1] Well, because most of them don't need one? :) guillom 16:57, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Discussion

Hey Nemo,

Cleaning up the wiki is great and all, but sometimes it's better to discuss things before you do them. :-) We probably should've pointed out that Foundationwiki feedback message to the fundraising team and asked them to help us come up with the best place to put that, rather than just doing it on tons of pages without their input. Cbrown1023 talk 20:01, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, we really need to discuss things like that more... since it's adding even more variables to the page. Links to other pages make it more likely for people to not donate and instead go off and read other things on this wiki, which we don't want. Azariv 20:12, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Well, yes, you're right, but we may loose some donor who can't find infos on tax exemption, as well; given also our recent discussions on fundraising-l I thought it was the right thing to do; then I was going to ask comments on list, but I felt it was excessive and I have eventually asked to donate@wikimedia.org: I've been told it's ok, but if it's not I'll revert. --Nemo 21:41, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
There's actually not a lot of evidence that we will lose donors over the lack of tax deductibility info:in fact, the status quo has been to not include it. However, there *is* evidence that navigation links on the donation form directly result in a lower contribution amount. Given that, I really must stand by my original opinion. Philippe (WMF) 02:28, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Exactly :) I have reverted. Philippe (WMF) 23:59, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Ok. Perhaps we could add the link on {{2010/Donate-footer/en}}? --Nemo 20:43, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Or maybe in the FAQ? "Where are my donations tax-deductible?" Or maybe we should just remove it from the page completely since it pretty much only applies to the US? Cbrown1023 talk 21:27, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
I don't want it anywhere on the donation form: it's an invitation to click away, which directly impacts donation amounts. I think the FAQ is good. :) Philippe (WMF) 02:24, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Question

Hey, on this edit you changed a translation that you suspect was already better than the new version. My instinct is that the old one was better as well. I'm wondering if you could explain why you changed it? I'm tempted to revert, but want to be sure I'm not missing something. Philippe (WMF) 01:16, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Is this Italian? Should it be redirected to FAQ/it? --MZMcBride 20:20, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

History of the Board of Trustees

This page needs an update for 2011 and 2012, if you're bored. :-) --MZMcBride 00:41, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

I hope you don't mind that I helped out there might be some missing so please do double check. :) The Helpful One 00:52, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

You know, I'm always for the preminence of Meta :-p, I liked it more when Board of Trustees linked to the relevant pages there, which have far more insight. But a collection of links like this is useful, thank you both. Nemo 06:34, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
There isn't much incentive for people to keep Meta-Wiki updated. The same isn't as true for this site. :-)
I agree that Meta-Wiki should be used where/when possible, but I snipped some content from it yesterday because trying to maintain certain data in two places simply doesn't work well. Meta-Wiki still has a much better info about the history of the Board, but some of that ought to be cleaned up and exist here, in some form. That's what I was hopefully laying the groundwork for in my most recent edits. --MZMcBride 16:11, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
