Thank you for the heads up! I'm encouraging people on wikiHow to apply. We have a fairly balanced gender ratio in our community so I'm hoping that can bring a fresh perspective to the table. With wikiHow not being a Wikimedia Foundation project (though we do you MediaWiki) and that being 50% of the score, I really hope their applications still get some attention.
