Idea for new community workspace

Hi. I would like to create some kind of collaborative workspace where coordinators or members of various WikiProjects would gather and provide updates and information on what is going on at each wikiproject, i.e. regarding their latest efforts, projects, and where interested editors can get involved.

You are a coordinator at one of the most active WikiProjects, so I wanted to get your brief input on whether you'd be interested in helping me to make this happen. I see a few possible options for making this happen, so I would like to get your input and feedback on this. which of the options below would you prefer? also, please reply to the brief questions below.

Please feel free to let me know what you think of this idea, and please let me know your preference, regarding the options above. if you do not see any need for this idea, that is totally fine. However, I think that the majority of editors lack awareness of where the truly active editing is taking place and at which WikiProjects, and I would like to do whatever I can to help make people more aware of where the activity is, what they can do to help, and also which areas of popflock.com resource offer ideas and efforts that might help them in their own editing activities. Please feel free to let me know. --Sm8900 (talk) 05:12, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

question re future NYC meetups, and ZOOM video

hi Megs. the NYC meetup meeting yesterday was very helpful and informative. I was wondering, is it possible to transmit all such meetings via ZOOM, like the one yesterday which was transmitted via ZOOM and via conference call?

that would make it much easier for editors like me to connect and to listen to many such meetings! thanks!! Just wanted to ask is that possible? please feel free to reply. thanks!! --Sm8900 (talk) 05:27, 20 March 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Sm8900:! I'm glad you found the meeting useful! There are a lot of unknowns in the world right now, and we do not know when we will be moving back to in-person meetings or what those will look like when we do. In the meantime, we'll continue to experiment with different channels for online communication, including Zoom. Look forward to (virtually) seeing you there. Megs (talk) 15:34, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
hi Megs. okay, that's good to know. that sounds good. please do move ahead with using ZOOM. it is provides a really helpful way for the rest of us to be part of the meeting, and to stay informed. it is extremely helpful, especially at times like this. thanks so much. --Sm8900 (talk) 21:02, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
