Right, let me be quite blunt. This thread is not
"undiplomatic", it's an
attempt to meddle in the affairs of other chapters, which do not concern
you. how would you have liked it if I was trashing the Haifa or DC bids
before they were even anything as formal as bids?
I disagree, as a chapter board member (WM-IT) I find this discussion
instructive, since we probably may want to present a bid ourselves in
the future. Moreover I think it is a good thing if we are able to
point out a problem when we have (plenty of) time to solve it.
As to "my opinion of WMUK has been tainted",
let me again be very blunt.
This I agree more with, as far as I could read this was only a
proposal, so there's no need to be enraged. I also think that WMUK
board will hear to every suggestion is made in this thread and in the
further stages of the bidding process. Nobody is throwing away the
bid, per sè.
Now kindly keep your noses out of other people's
I strongly disagree with this, it is about the movement and so it's
good to have some opinion sharing.
That said, I repeat, I think that nobody (neither WMUK or Wikimedians)
should feel hurt by a proposal.
