Hey, congratulations to all of us, :-)
me and Micru just pushed the thing a little, but this is a *community* thing. 

Please remember it :-)
Everyone of us can be the "ambassador" of his commuity in the group, and can act as a bridge between the international community and the local one.
Of course, everyone is entitled to join us and express his opinion, but it's very important that we all together build a conversation about the future of Wikisource, and what do we want to see happening.

Hi everyone,

Congratulations Aubrey! I am curious about the next steps. In the meantime, I would be happy to translate
the Hindi surveys( if there were any :P ).

Congratulations Aubrey for having made this user group a reality. Wikisource Community User Group sounds good for me.

I'll be happy help you for the survey results analysis. They interest me very much.

Hello all,
it's my pleasure to give you 2 good news.
The first one is that our survey has reached more than 100 responses: we didn't expect this result, and I'm personally very happy about that. 

This means few things:
* that you should check again that the survey has been wel promoted in your language Wikisource. You can use the sitenotice, the village pump, your facebook page, etc. We have just posted the link on the Wikisource Facebook page, and hopefully this will be reposted by the Wikipedia page in the afternoon (I asked Matthew Rioth to boost it a little).
* that the more answers we eill havem, the better we will now about the international community. This is important, so we can decide where to go next, together.
* that you will have to help us gathering and analyzing the results :-) I don't know 9 of the 11 languages used in the survey, so that can be a problem :-D 

The second good news is that our Wikisource UG has got accepted, with one condition: it's much better if we change our name. 
So, what about Wikisource Community User Group?
What do you think of it? I really like that, so for me there are no issues. Tell us your opinion. If anybody is against it, we'll tell the AffCom that's OK and we'll proceed with the creation of the UG.
