A few new categories for regular monthly reports in This Month in GLAM?[edit]

Hello @Romaine, I hope you are well! I'm taking the freedom to ping you here. I was trying to find a list of all updates by the Content Partnerships Hub in This Month in GLAM, and I see that all updates are still categorized under Other reports. Would it be possible to give these updates their own category?

Similarly, there have been a lot of monthly updates about Structured Data on Commons and I think this one could use its own category too!

I assume that manually creating a category for each is not enough, as the newsletter seems to be heavily template-driven? Let me know if I can do this myself though.

Thanks for all your work on the newsletter! Sandra Fauconnier (WMSE) (talk) 12:36, 27 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I found the template in charge of the categories and added both the Content Partnerships Hub and Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons. / André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 14:13, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
