Recently we came to know that a fraud guy has been claiming himself to be the 
"head" of Tamil Wiki and a director for yet-to-be-formed Indian Wikimedia 
chapter. He has been doing this at many places including Govt circles. This was 
a shock for us. I would like to warn a similar possibility for all other Indian 

I recommend that each Wiki start a mechanism to officially elect few official 
Spokespersons / contact persons and spread the word about this selection. The 
appointment can be cycled every few months to share responsibility with more 
members. These need not be just the sysops / bureaucrats. They can be anyone 
trust worthy, long serving the community, having fair idea of Wiki organization 
and easy to cooperate and communicate with.
