Subject: Wikimedia Foundation is doing large online surveys in December
To: Nicole Ebber <>, Christof Pins

Dear Wikimedia User Groups, Thematic Organizations, and Chapters,

I am emailing to let you know that the Learning & Evaluation team at
the Wikimedia Foundation is coordinating the launch of Community
Engagement Insights—a collection of surveys to four different audience
groups in the Wikimedia movement. The surveys are specifically going
out to active editors, very active editors, Wikimedia program leaders
and affiliates, and volunteer wikimedia developers. The surveys will
be launched on December 1st. We wanted to give you advanced notice
that we will be using a few methods to send out this survey, including
the central notice banner to logged-in users.

These surveys seek to improve the alignment between Wikimedia
Foundation and Wikimedia communities, gathering information about: (1)
feedback about the foundations's programs, projects and services, (2)
needs of Wikimedia communities (3) input to future projects and (4)
measuring impact of our work. We hope that by listening better to
Wikimedia communities, we will get better as an organization at
serving the movement. You can find more details about this project on

We need your help! We know that language is a big challenge to
participate in the foundation's surveys, and we'd like to help change
that for this survey. While we have some staff capacity to translate,
we will need the help of affiliates and individual volunteers to make
sure we can get the surveys and information translated. I will reach
out again in early October with more information about how you can get
involved with translation.

Thank you so much for your time. I am very excited to see us do more
to listen to our communities. If you have any questions about this
project--or about surveys in general--you can reach me at or

All the best,
Edward Galvez
