I don't undestand. Do you mean that pages are blocked to no-sysop members? It seems to have a sense because when a board (or preliminary board) take a decision it's important to communicate this decision (also with grammatical errors). If a no-board person makes a change with unintentional misanderstandigs, the communication could be different. What do you think if a person change your sandbox or "correct" your discussion page changing the sense of your sentences? > > Last, but not least... this resolution says that "Wikimedia CH shall > have its seat in Zurich". Does that mean "until a President is elected", > or is there a change to the proposed bylaws ? > There was a discussion same months ago and the most part of swiss wikipedians seemed to accept that the seat of foundation was in a town more central for all swiss people (like Zurich). It could be that this resolution is connected with this discussion.
