  • This editor approached us at the Wikimania Singapore event and we discussed how we need experts in humanities to contribute and assist with reviewing the backlogged submissions. He expressed an interest after seeing our poster at Wikimania. He led a team of researchers from China to investigate and publish research articles about Wikipedia. As such, his professional, publishing and open experiences are quite extensive. Since he primarily publishes in Chinese language, I suggested that he initially apply for associate editor position to familiarize himself with publishing and communicating in English to gain confidence in this area. I fully Support his application. OhanaUnitedTalk page 03:52, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • support Gan Lihao coming on as an associate editor, but we should also decide on a clear idea of what the process would be (timeline/criteria) to move them (or any other associate editor in a similar situation) to full editor --Mstefan (discusscontribs) 12:52, 13 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Good point. I think we will "cross that bridge" and evaluate once we see the backlog submissions getting chipped away by the newly recruited editors and associate editor. OhanaUnitedTalk page 03:11, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
