Somehow and quite often major discussion about Wikimepedia, Wikimedia or one of the projects move off wiki. Discussions end up on old style mailing lists, on closed source sites like Facebook, but not on wiki. How can we keep major discussions about Wikipedia, Wikimedia or one of the projects on wiki? Weren't talk pages designed for talk, for discussion, for debate, for discourse? What do we find elsewhere we don't have on wiki that moves our discussions off wiki? What has to be changed to encourage Wikipedians and Wikimedians to host their discussions on wiki? Ad Huikeshoven (talk) 15:47, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
