Hi all, thanks to our great web team (consisting of Petar Marjanovic, Sandro Pfister, Manuel Schneider, Jürg Studer and Ilario Valdelli), we finally managed to get rid of our old WordPress homepage and installed a freely editable wiki on http://www.wikimedia.ch Basically, everyone can create an account and edit, though the sensitive pages (bank account, contact information, membership stuff etc.) are protected and only editable by trusted users. We decided to have a system that is as open as possible so that individual users can help in writing news reports/items, submit events for the calendar, write about regional activities/meetups etc. This is quite an Assume Good Faith exercise and we hope it works...otherwise we can still revert to a "only trusted users may edit"-policy later on.
Further, the openness is also quite nice for multilinguality and I'm happy to say that nearly all pages are in German, English and French, many of them also in Italian (though we admittedly struggle with Rumantsch/Rhaeto-Romanic). Comments are welcome! For now, thanks again to our web team and I hope that our new site finds general approval!
