Let's start a meta page where people can
register thoughts/complaints/grievances/joy/sorry to WMF staff. If
it is a
serious concern, the staff can respond after someone consults with
receive either a you can handle it or I can handle it response.
I always thought that the mailing lists filled this role, albeit off-
wiki and in a less rigid way.
Sorry, but I think both implementations above fail in one
respect in terms of what I was proposing. My idea was that
there would be a mechanism where an implicit trust between
the community experts and the foundation ( == staff and
trustees - as long as we are going to sadly progress on the
course of professionalizing even the board of trustees) would
be gradually engendered.
There is the aspect of signal to noise ratio that would be
adequately addressed by an arrangement where the foundation
actors themselves were the ones recruiting who they thought
could provide insightful comments on the concerns and
realities of the various communities.
