I'm getting so many red flags. Established by WMF via secret (non-transparent) process, with no community involvement? Non-wiki environment, with the same scope as existing wikis? WMF-decided conduct policies? Every single moderator is a WMF employee? Forum using closed groups, with non-transparent communication? (Closed-source software, unless I'm mistaken?) So far outside Wikimedia spaces that the only place it was even _announced_ was an off-wiki mailing list?
Is there something the Wikimedia Foundation would like to tell us? -- Yair Rand בתאריך יום ג׳, 25 ביוני 2019 ב-14:56 מאת Pine W <wiki.p...@gmail.com >: > Hi Maria, > > Thanks for this update. > > I hope that you can answer a question.
