… that your assistance to Wikizine would be very useful?
This newsletter is started by [[meta:user:Walter ]]. Until now Wikizine is nearly completely created by only this user, week after week. There is only assistance in copyediting. That is useful work and improves the quality of the newsletter but does not make a newsletter. It becomes harder and harder to make every week a new Wikizine alone and keep an acceptable level of quality. Assistance in the form of new core editor who is capable and willing to construct Wikizine on a long time basis is important to the continuing of Wikizine in its current form.
Wikizine can offer to a core staff volunteer access to the (limited) hosting facilities of Wikizine for personal use for so far those are not in conflict with the needs of Wikizine.
Helping out by writing “Did you know” or “Was ist das?” items of reporting news from your home wiki, helping out with the very fragile German translation project (also one person now) of Wikizine would also be helpful. But a core staff member is what is really needed.
