How this looks in the backend: Tell me if you need any interface changes. :)

This looks great - if it's easy, can we just show the checks and not the "X". As it is right now, it's kinda hard to easily see what's been checked.

If not, this works fine!

Create new application question on engagement and roles in Wikimedia Movement

@NiharikaKohli Please make this a required question.

@NiharikaKohli Please move this to before "Interest & Involvement in Wikimania" section.

@Shouston_WMF You mean it should be the last one in "Participation in the Wikimedia projects" section?

@NiharikaKohli If we're going to put it into the "Participation" section, then it should come before the long-form answers.

@Shouston_WMF I don't think I follow. As of now it is in the "Participation" section and it is placed before the long form answers.

@NiharikaKohli Apologies, I meant to move it in the review system. However, looking back now I don't think this is very valuable, so please ignore this change :)
