Dear all, At its 11 July board meeting, the Board of Trustees passed a resolution rescinding its previous direction to implement the personal image hiding feature.
The resolution is online at http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Resolution:_Personal_Image_Hiding_Feature We are working on a Q&A document that will be published after Wikimania. The following is the resolution's text: "In May 2011, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees unanimously passed a resolution regarding controversial content. The resolution included a request to the Executive Director to implement a "personal image hiding feature" for the Wikimedia projects. Following a community poll organized by the Foundation, and extensive discussion in various venues, it has become clear that this issue can be be highly divisive and distracting to the Wikimedia community. We trust our community, and we respect the arguments that have been made opposing the feature as well as those in support of it. We affirm our support for better user choice and user preferences, but do not want to prescribe a specific mechanism for offering that choice. Therefore we rescind the request to develop this feature. The remainder of the May 2011 resolution remains in effect."
