Hi RhonosF1, Thanks for the comment. I like the idea too. Coincidentally, a subject for discussion at the upcoming Café is obtaining non-WMF funding for community projects. A constant problem is that the community has a limited supply of people and time, and an extensive list of tasks and

Hello, this is about different things. One is an opinion about Earth Day, one is an opinion about the organization behind a specific event, and one is an opinion about whether the WMF should link to this specific event. For example, I am not against protecting the climate. I might have some
