If anyone finds the report
biased, it would be helpful to share the excerpts or the absences that
prove this bias. We are happy to amend any mistakes, but for that we need
to identify them.
I would start with the first sentence of the summary. This currently reads:
"The result of the community review is positive."
This is not a neutral summary of even the report's own content, which
accurately describes sentiments as "mixed". The summary continues:
"The goal of the MS Forum is: *to improve community collaboration around
Movement Strategy (MS) on a multilingual platform that is welcoming and
easy to use. *The participation and support received during the community
review support the premise. Close to 300 people participated in the
community review; many participants were from Africa, Asia, and Latin
America. Many are contributors from medium-size and small Wikimedia
We all know few people read Wikipedia articles from beginning to end. Most
just scan the first couple of paragraphs. The same will apply to this page.
The fact that none of the negative community feedback has made it into the
Summary's first paragraph makes this report come across like an
ideologically driven ad, designed to shape opinion rather than reflect it.
So, revising the summary, starting with the first sentence, would be a good
place to begin.
