Hi Dumisani, Thank you for the response.
My concern is mainly regarding the idea of WMF unilaterally making a decision to implement protection of information or assets on Meta. The distinction that I am making is between a request and a unilateral action. If WMF thinks that there is a reason for protection of an asset on Meta, and WMF makes a request to the Meta community or to a Meta admin for that protection, and the request is granted by the community or the Meta admin, then I'm likely to support both the process and the outcome. There have been some other inquiries and suggestions raised in this thread by Tito Dutta, Lodewijk, and Mike Peel. I am hoping that you will respond to them as well. I took a brief look at the page https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Affiliates_Data_Portal and a couple of the subpages, and at first glance I think that the design is good. My guess is that as affiliates gain experience with using the portal that there will be some detailed feedback. Perhaps you could create a brief survey to ask affiliates what they think of the portal and for any suggestions.
