Good evening Émeric, good evening all. Allow me to reply. Oh wait, that's right, I don't need you to allow the publication of emails on this mailing list - this sure comes as a change, and a welcome one too ! I won't be speaking of any member of the community, whether volunteer or employee, it

Hello, I'm but a simple member of Wikimedia France, but I trust the Post Scriptum by Nadine was clear on the matter : "no other cryptocurrency donations project is planned". And yes, I believe that includes Foldingcoin. Personally, I'm fond of Folding@Home, I've even given more than my fair share

That's fantastic ! Proof, if it was ever needed, that the Wikimedia movement can have an effect on the "outside world" other than collecting and providing information ; Wikimedia Armenia actually took the leading part in bettering an international standard ! My most heartfelt congratulations

Forgive my (usual ?) bluntness, but I don't think congratulations are in order for undertaking the governance review ;-) As a member and unwilling observer, I can tell you it was dearly needed, be it by internal or external auditors, and mandated by the WMF. However, as a long time member of

Hello, Mathieu, not only are you forum-shopping here as Maarten pointed out, you are also consecutively trying one "what if" after the other instead of providing an actual formal case against the CC0 license currently in effect on Wikidata. So far each of your individual arguments has been

Hello, You seem to be mistaken. Traceability of information does not pertain with who imported said information on Wikidata. Could be an unregistered user, could be a bot, could be a Wikimedian in residence or even the Pope himself, it doesn't make a difference in the world. What matters in

I heartily agree : build that firewall, and let Cisco pay for it ! Wait, what were you suggesting in your incipit ? Oh, right, "a way that's rational, avoiding to create unnecessary panic of course". I'd rather not ask of people organizing conventions (which is already time-consuming by itself)

Hey, For once, I'll make this one short : I agree, let's stay away from widely fluctuating, purely fiduciary, resources-hogging (and no, FLDC does *not* rely on "clean electricity", it's still an energy hog like the lot of them), crypto-currencies. And while we're at it, pretty please, let's also

Hello all, As sad at it is, it's probably for the best - I'd hate for people to get sick in a time of joy and celebration, best be on the safe side. And it's probably better to take the decision sooner rather than later. It lets people know in advance, cancel plans far ahead, without rush. I
