Sending this to Wiki Loves Monuments list, too!
If you have technical needs for photo competitions, you can share a wish simply by describing the problem. No high technical knowledge needed.

Subject: 2016 Community Wishlist Survey - Special call for programs and affiliates!
Cc: Amanda Bittaker <>

Hello all,

Please see this year's Community Wishlist announcement below.  This year, "Programs and events" and "Chapters and affiliates" are special categories that will be considered outside the top 10 wishes.

"After the voting phase, when we have the prioritized backlog, we plan to allocate 75% of our wishlist work to the top 10 wishes, and 25% to proposals important to smaller groups....So – yes, please come and post your proposals, even if you don't think you'll get into the top 10!" [1]

The proposal phase lasts until Nov 20th--this is the time to propose and refine proposals.  Check back often and collaborate with your program and affiliate peers to craft the best proposals.  So far, there are 3 Program and events proposals and 0 Chapter and affiliate proposals.

A wish can't be voted on or selected unless it's created during this proposal phase--if you want to see a tool, a metric, or extension, now is the time to propose it.  And please share with every program leader you know!  More people means more and stronger proposals.

[Cross posting to wikimedia-ped, education, and affiliates--sorry if you see this multiple times, but it's really important and we don't want to leave anyone out!]

All the best,
Amanda and María

Subject: [Wikimedia-l] 2016 Community Wishlist Survey
To: Wikimedia Mailing List <>

Hi everyone,

The second annual Community Wishlist Survey starts today, and you're
invited to post proposals for projects that you'd like WMF's Community Tech
team to work on:

The Community Tech team builds features and makes changes that active
Wikimedia contributors want, and the Wishlist Survey sets the team's agenda
for the year.

The Wishlist Survey starts with a two-week proposal period, when
contributors from all Wikimedia projects are invited to post, discuss and
improve propsals. After that, there's a two-week voting period, when
everyone can post support-votes on the proposals that they think are
worthwhile. We end up with a ranked list of wishes, measured by the
participants' enthusiasm for each idea.

Community Tech is responsible for addressing the top 10 wishes on the list,
as well as some top wishes from smaller groups and projects that are doing
important work, but don't have the numbers to get their proposal into the
top 10. The Wishlist is also used by volunteer developers and other teams,
who want to find projects to work on that the community really wants.

So I hope that everybody comes and participates; it's an opportunity to set
the agenda for a Wikimedia Foundation product team.

We would also ask that you help us spread the word. Please do post on your
wikis and tell others this is happening, and that if they don't feel
comfortable writing in English, proposals are welcome in any language.
