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
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
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
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
So far each of your individual arguments has been
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)
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
And while we're at it, pretty please, let's also
I was doxxed by someone in the movement a few years ago, and I cannot stress
this enough : WE MUST NOT DOXX PEOPLE.
It doesn't matter how good our intentions are.
It doesn't matter how bad these people are.
We as a community choose to block, ban, lock, whether or not globally, the
Well, considering my life was already kind of in shambles beforehand, there
wasn't much more to be done, and I didn't risk much, but still, I valued my
privacy then - and still do.
I live in France with french citizenship, where I enjoy a rather
comfortable freedom of expression, but I'm also
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.
What I want to read : comments on the UCoC.
What I don't want to read : a barrage of *insert adjective, whether laudative
or criticizing* reply after reply after reply after reply on the comments of
one or more of the subscribers of this list.
I understand the initial comments
We learned with great sadness of the sudden passing of Elena Sanz yesterday.
We may not all have met her, but we know how much she meant to the movement,
and we know how much the movement meant to her.
Please pass our sincerest condolences to her loved ones.
For the Board of Wikimédia
Hello Amir, hello all,
Fantastic news !
Quick side question : whatever will happen to the passwords that we kept on
post-it notes sticked to our monitors for lack of frequent use or good enough
cognitive skills ?
Joke aside, will there be a site-wide password purge once v3 is deployed, or
Now *that* is fantastic news indeed. I'll be sure to read up on that.
The dinosaur's dead, long live the new, uh, dinosaur ! ;-)

Hello Maggie, hello all,
If you can communicate on the subject, when was your team first made aware of
the situation ? Trying to figure out how long this has lasted.
And were affected users (by which I mean users who had their emails and
passwords reset) ultimately able to recover their
