this thread can be a general topical thread for asking questions to the moderator, or to WMF personnel, or questions of general interest and for discussion by the community.
I have some specific questions at the outset, as expressed below:
I have two questions about these threads:
(a) are these threads also open for discussion by the general community?
(b) are these threads meant to be the focal point for discussion for some specific period of time, or is it ok to introduce other general topics again, at any time a regular community member wishes to do so?
I hope you do not mind me asking this question. I noticed that response and discussion frequency here has declined somewhat over the last week or two, amongst some of the ordinary community members who were regular participants further back, so I simply wanted to get clarification on this.
I hope you don’t mind me asking these questions. I truly value this forum, and all of the interchange, ideas and insights offered here over time. I truly appreciate all of your efforts. thanks.
