Follow up to request for input on a strategic plan

Sable, Sarah
I wanted to make a follow-up comment after Bahar pointed out that in fact Turkey is not in the Middle East. While he is absolutely right in pointing out that Turkey is a part of Europe, unfortunately, due to the way Wikimedia is forced to track unique users for the purpose of consistent analysis it makes sense for us to place turkey with Middle Eastern and North African languages Wikipedia is reliant on ComScore, an Internet tracking company with a global survey (see link: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Stu/comScore_data_on_Wikimedia) to provide us with information about the number of unique users of  Wikipedia sites because unfortunately, we do not have the ability to track that data ourselves. ComScore places Turkey as part of their Middle East and Africa region.  Since they do not break the information down by country for us we are forced to stick to their regional classification in order to produce consistent analysis.  Sorry that this is causing Turkey to be incorrectly geographically classified, but please don't let it keep you from participating in the strategic planning process.  Additionally, I will add a note to the Turkish language to explain the reason for its misclassification.
