Appreciation for the first submission

This is our first real, non-test submission for this year's conference!

Thank you, ‎User:YumikoSato! :) -- Econterms (talk) 19:59, 15 July 2021 (UTC)

What is your insight?

YumikoSato You say that you can speak to Japanese Wikipedia, and also make comparison with Croatian language Wikipedia.

I checked Japanese language Wikipedia ja:user:YumikoSato and do not see you registered there. Can you add a sentence explaining how you know about Japanese language Wikipedia, or evaluated it, or experienced it? Do you know Japanese language?

I am not looking for much, I just wanted to know a little more about your approach to evaluating this and how you gained insight. Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 20:52, 21 September 2021 (UTC)

Hey Lane, Yumiko is bona fide. She is a journalist who has written about this for Slate. She'll be good to have at the conference. (Just realised it's been six years since I was with y'all in Washington DC ... time flies!) Best, --Jayen466 (talk) 17:18, 9 October 2021 (UTC)

Possible revision

Some on the program team wanted to see if it would be possible to focus on any North American aspect. -- Econterms (talk) 04:25, 4 October 2021 (UTC)

Provocation ?

I wonder how much this title is a provocation... It would be useful to have the opinion of German or French wikimedians. --Ruthven (talk) 13:54, 8 October 2021 (UTC)

See my reply to Lane above. For Croatian Wikipedia, see also the WMF's own report here: – it's very much been a real and long-standing issue. I don't think the title is meant to imply that ALL non-English Wikipedias have such a problem, only that some do ... which is undoubtedly true. That's why the WMF has started a Disinformation department looking at these issues. --Jayen466 (talk) 17:27, 9 October 2021 (UTC)
