Subject: Seeking comments and translations for proposed video project
Dear Wikimedia colleagues:
I am developing a proposal for a video series that's designed to introduce
Wikimedia to new contributors (particularly in GLAM and education
programs), and to motivate them to participate in the community in a
constructive way. I would appreciate your input. The video is intended for
translation into multiple languages; there are already volunteers for
Spanish and German translation.
The proposal's main draft page is here:
The proposal talk page is here; it includes a draft outline of specific
subjects to cover:
Please note that the scope and budget of the project are still under

Please add your questions and comments to the talk page.
If you would like to support the project with your endorsement, please do
If you would like to volunteer to translate the video, please email me or
comment on the talk page.
Thanks and regards,

As far as I can tell, fawikibooks and dewikivoyage *also* have namespace
name conflicts but those pages are not broken...I've left Flow enabled
there for now.
