Yeah but wouldn't that happen anyway? In the absence of information,
wouldn't the selectors assume that most or all of the elected members will
be from the Global North, mostly from English-speaking wikis, and the rest
from the other large wikis (which seems like the likely outcome - 2 enwiki
candidates, 2-3 English candidates from Wikidata, Commons, smaller English
projects, and a few from German, French etc. wikis) and try to compensate
for that? I don't see how a process change would put people from the
English-speaking wikis at a significant disadvantage. I can see why they
would feel that the process as a whole puts them at a disadvantage, but the
change in the ordering of events wouldn't really affect that.
