Point taken, and that is primarily I'd like to get you involved. All
of us would like to make a balance I suppose.
One thing I haven't mentioned on the list is ... a concern if
advertising WP focusing events on other projects. There would be
various opinions, but giving a thought on this issue for hours, I
reached a conclusion it would be much better than holding such events
without inviting other project participants (like me). The latter
could be more insulting.
> Once we've figured out the best way to go about doing that (and we'd appreciate any suggestions), we'll start putting a process into place.
Do you have any timeline? The earliest events (not of ours) will be
held in less than a month and everyone is rushing into holidays ...
> Centralnotice is like a cannon... we don't want to direct a notice at millions of people, if the party isn't ready for the potential end result.
Sure, but if I didn't mentioned (uh-oh and it was very likely ....
then sorry), we at WiKansai are mainly interested in making a limit
using CN thanks to geotarget: jawiki users are not only living in
Japan. I suppose it might be much more concerns in language projects
whose languages are more widely spoken beyond border of one country.

We did some quick checking and realized that most people who are logged in and intend to give have already given. The banners will stay off for a while, and we'll most likely not turn them on until after the first of the year for a final wrap-up push.
