Requiring a reason when flagging users

The call for feedback on, and resulting discussion, relating to requiring a reason when flagging users, which could then be exposed to the end user to ensure they had access to the reason for their account status being changed, took up the majority of our meeting this week.

Additional impressions and feedback is added to the ticket (meta #6834), which is still open for feedback and opinions, but it is also a good discussion from the meeting transcript that is worth reading over.

Checking in with international liaisons

Unfortunately, due to the passionate discussions taking place, our weekly meeting ran out of time, and we did not have time to directly reach out to our international liaisons during the chat this week, but the previously referenced plan of doing direct outreach on a quarterly basis is still planned to happen, and direct contact has been had during Q1.
