Punctuation errors on the "Financial Reports" page

This page uses en dashes to identify financial years, when the dash should be restricted to ranges of years. That is according to the WP-en MOS and to general punctuation guidelines used by the publishing industry. I can't edit the page myself to fix.

It's arguable that the "2021-2022" financial year, with a hyphen, should be "2021/2022". But it's clearly wrong to typeset "2018–2019" with an en dash. It's not a period of two years, 2018 through 2019, but a single year that spans part of 2018 and part of 2019. At the very least it should be changed to a simple hyphen, but slashes are the norm for financial and school years. With a slash, unlike a hyphen, it's clear that the punctuation isn't a mistake for an en dash. Kwamikagami (talk) 21:38, 31 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Kwamikagami: These have been changed to a short dash - thank you for the ping. --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 15:20, 19 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Office action

Is there a page somewhere- maybe here, maybe on governance wiki- that provides a log of past office actions made by the WMF? Edward-Woodrow (talk) 12:05, 7 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Edward-Woodrow nothing complete and authoritative that I'm aware of. You can follow up on this at foundation:Policy talk:Office actions. — xaosflux Talk 12:20, 7 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I did ask this at Policy talk:Office actions, but this page is more centralized and has many more watchers, so I'll hopefully actually get an answer. Thanks, Edward-Woodrow (talk) 13:07, 7 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Problem with link

Link for Board of Trustees is incorrect. Unregistered users and readers see 404. All(?) registered users see Rudolph Ampofo Proeksad (talk) 18:10, 10 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Proeksad: This has been fixed - thank you for pointing it out! --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 15:17, 12 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@GVarnum-WMF, It doesn't work for authorized non-english users. [[foundationsite:role/board/{{Foundationsite language}}|Board of Trustees]] but, probably, should be [[foundationsite:{{Foundationsite language}}/role/board/|Board of Trustees]] because the links are organized differently, not like in projects ( not Proeksad (talk) 16:40, 12 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Proeksad: Apologies - I did not notice that error. I have fixed - and will also work on checking the other uses just to make sure I did not repeat the error elsewhere. Again, apologies and thank you for your diligence and help! Also thank you to @Quiddity (WMF) for helping flag while I was away. :) --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 18:01, 12 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
