3) Same as question #1, I just wanted to second it :-). Lankiveil 21:26, 11 July 2011 (EST)

4) Leading on from #2, are there any prominent Wikimedians in the UK who are disaffected or deliberately not associated with the chapter? Does WMUK's strategic plan involve bringing these people aboard? Lankiveil 21:26, 11 July 2011 (EST)

5) Are there any non-core administrative activities (bookkeeping, payroll, etc) that WMUK is looking to offload to either paid staff or external organisations, and what was the reasoning behind deciding what should be 'offshored'? Lankiveil 21:26, 11 July 2011 (EST).

Also very interested in hearing about this. Juttavd 09:19, 13 July 2011 (EST)

11) How does the UK chapter encourage, manage, keep track and communicate volunteer-driven projects and project leadership? We have lots of great ideas that we would love to see implemented, but the challenge is to find ambassadors that get the projects off the ground and going? Does the UK chapter have particular support mechanisms in place? Juttavd 09:19, 13 July 2011 (EST)
