WMIN chapter president Rahul Deshmukh attended Wikimania 2018 in Cape Town
without being selected for any type of scholarship. My question is why was
he sent to the conference depriving other community members from India who
were in the waiting list.
He spoke in the informal chairpersons' meetup for few minutes. The meeting
doesn't require president of the organization's presence, and already there
were 2 EC member of WMIN present, who could have attended the meeting.
To me, this is utter misuse of power and abuse of donation money.
I recently saw an email from Odia Wikimedia that they are organising month
long editathons for Men's Hockey World Cup. This is a great initiative!
And also gave me the idea to do something similar in November. As many of
you may know Delhi
will host the Women's World Boxing Championship from 15 - 24 November.
Could we all hold online and offline events around this topic editing and
creating pages of women boxers etc across several Indic languages.
I will definitely organise one Wikipedia editathon in Delhi in November on
this topic and would love if other people can join us and/or organise their
own in their language communities.
Tito/CIS, can we get some help for this?
Let me know your thoughts.

To: Wikimedia Mailing List <wikimedia-l(a)lists.wikimedia.org>, Wikimedia
The Community Wishlist Survey is now open, and you can post proposals
for projects that you would like the Wikimedia Foundation'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 next year.
The Wishlist Survey starts with a two-week proposal period, when
contributors from all Wikimedia projects are invited to post, discuss
and improve proposals. After that, there's a two-week voting period,
when everyone can post support-votes on the proposals.
You can post technical proposals until 11 November.
You can vote on proposals from 16 November to 30 November.
The Community Tech team is responsible for addressing the top ten
wishes on the list. If they, after investigating it, find that
something isn't feasible, they need to explain why to the community.
The Wishlist can also be used by volunteer developers and other teams,
who want to find projects to work on that the community really wants.

participate much in the event because of the complexity of the subject, so
for the extended period, we have expanded the theme and now have also
included social health. The list of articles have been updated on meta and
the same can be checked here-
You are all expected to join hands with the women wikimedians from your
respective communities in bridging the gender gap.
