Hi all,

The August edition of the Fellowship News is now available on meta-wiki:

Project highlights in this issue include:

Dispute Resolution Project - Steven Zhang compiled results of the August
trial at the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard, and a Request for Comment on
an easier way to file dispute resolution requests is underway.

WikiWomen's Collaborative Project - Sarah Stierch and volunteer WikiWomen
around the world launched the WikiWomen's Collaborative, a social media
initiative connecting women who currently edit or aspire to edit Wikipedia.

Help Pages Redesign Project - Peter Coombe completed a redesign of English
Wikipedia's main help page and usability tests are being run to compare
users' experiences with it. Results will be compiled and a redesign
proposal will be brought to the community for discussion.

Small Wiki Editor Engagement Project - Tanvir Rahman launched the new help
page system on Bangla Wikipedia with pages that teach editors about new
article creation and other popular editing activities. Metrics are still
being collected but it appears article creation has already nearly doubled.

Teahouse Project - The Teahouse team refined automated invites and finished
improvements that surface hosting activity. The Teahouse pages are going
through a redesign to simplify the space for new editors, and we're looking
at creating a new volunteer "maitre d" role.

Come read all about it in this issue of the Fellowship News!
