The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees elections are over -- and three of my top picks won! This is an important moment for Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. One of the clearest differences among the candidates was around how to best engage the volunteer community in governance issues. I am delighted to see three new trustees who clearly opposed the disastrous rollout of the Superprotect feature, and who bring strong expertise in working effectively with the many Wikimedia volunteers. Congratulations to Dariusz Jemielniak, James Heilman, and Denny Vrandečić!
Today, the results of the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) board of trustees election were announced. 5167 people voted, making this the highest turnout in any Wikimedia election to date. The winners — Dariusz Jemielniak, James Heilman, and Denny Vrandečić — were three of the top four I endorsed.
