Hm, I just don't see the point in making Bern the seat of Wikimedia CH
and opening a post box, when none of the persons who are interested in
Wikimedia CH live there. And by the way, a lot of swiss associations
have its seat not in Bern but e.g. in Zurich (WWF Schweiz as an
example). And Zurich has the advantage, that at least some of us live
next to Zurich, what would make it easier to maintain a post box. And
for tax reasons: afaik Zurich is rather tax-friendlier than Bern
(international investors etc.).
Just that you don't misunderstand me: I don't want to "push forward"
Zurich, I'm absolutely okay with Olten and Solothurn as well, but why
don't we make the seat there, where we have a "local" instead of
making it in a town, which is by the way not exactly central (if you
look on a Swiss map, Lucerne is definitely more central), and where
none of us lives.
