Hi all, thanks for the helpful links and comments.

Regarding translation, it has been broken on that page for several months now, Anna. I don't have enough familiarity with those tempermental translation tags to figure it out, but any community expertise would be very welcome :)


With the holidays here in the US, Nichole was eager to get the newsletter out before most of us went on vacation. I apologize for the break in departure and any confusion that came from it.

In general, most of us on my team will be pretty quiet until January 3. I know that Nichole started a conversation about the future direction of the newsletter separately, and we still welcome input there. Anna is right to note that it's happening on list and not on wiki, which perhaps was an oversight. If anyone wants to migrate or start a discussion on wiki, please do! (And ping us!) Otherwise we can resume in the new year.

In the meantime, please enjoy the updates from Israel, Greece, Norway, Macedonia, Germany and Basque Country. It's a great way to end the year, and I'm excited to see what 2017 has in store for us :)


Happy holidays to those who celebrate, and happy new year!

Dear Nichole, 

Thank you for sharing the newsletter. In the past, the newsletter team, which Sailesh linked to, has been contacted about helping to produce it. It seems that you have produced it entirely on your own. Why this depature from previous practice without discussion? I had no talk page notifications nor any emails. Was this issue of newsletter copyedited prior to publication? It doesn't look like it, based on the the page history. Also, there are translation estension breaks all over the news page: https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education/News and there is a redlink on the homepage: https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education The community is happy to help publish the newsletter, if you include us.

I am happy to announce the release of the Wikipedia Education Program's December Newsletter.  There are some great stories in this issue! 

If there is anyone in the community who has the "MassMessage sender" user right I would kindly ask your help this month to send the newsletter out via that channel. 

My best to you all as we finish out 2016!
