Foundation Images Policy[纂]
I am Yosri from Malay Wikipedia. Recently I was informed by certain parties that MS Wiki need to delete any images tagged as Non-Commercial under Foundation Licensing policy. After I have done some studies, I realised that Wikipedia Foundations is moving towards allowing commercialises all images, as such they are acting on behalf of commercial company to require all images loaded with tagging Non-Commercial in all Wiki Project to be removed, including those loaded in local Wiki. You are only allowed to licenses your images under "free content", which specifically allows commercial reuse, example GDLF 1.2. Certain images is exempted under a very narrow EDP ("exemption doctrine policy") definition. If you all already aware about this, please ignore this comment. Otherwise, for more details please visit http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Village_pump#Wikimedia_projects_still_using_non-commercial-only_images.3F Yosri 二〇一一年三月二日 （三） 〇五時二四分 (UTC)

Translating Bottega Veneta[纂]
Hi! I’m from the English-language Wikipedia, where in addition to volunteer editing, I also get paid to edit (disclosed at my userpage here). One of my clients (Bottega Veneta) tasked me with ensuring their information was correct at the CHT-language version. They’ve provided me with an up-to-date translation of the English article, but I’m only fluent in English. Can anyone here help me verify the translations and update the CHT-language version?--FacultiesIntact (對話) 二〇一七年二月一七日 （五） 〇一時四三分 (UTC)
- It's not a good idea to introduce a company in classical Chinese because all Chinese speakers are using modern Chinese instead. --逆襲的天邪鬼 (對話) 二〇一七年三月二七日 （一） 〇五時五四分 (UTC)
- Please notice this is CLASSICAL Chinese wikipedia, NOT TRADITIONAL Chinese wikipedia. Classical Chinese is like Old English or Latin, is an ancient language. Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese are both used in Chinese wikipedia.--丁子君 (對話) 二〇一七年三月三〇日 （四） 〇〇時五八分 (UTC)

Delay of the 2021 WMF Board of Trustees election[纂]
We are reaching out to you today regarding the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election. This election was due to open on August 4th. Due to some technical issues with SecurePoll, the election must be delayed by two weeks. This means we plan to launch the election on August 18th, which is the day after Wikimania concludes.
For information on the technical issues, you can see the Phabricator ticket.
We are truly sorry for this delay and hope that we will get back on schedule on August 18th. We are in touch with the Elections Committee and the candidates to coordinate next steps. We will update the Board election Talk page and Telegram channel as we know more.
Upcoming Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections[纂]
- You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.
The Board of Trustees is preparing a call for feedback about the upcoming Board Elections, from January 7 - February 10, 2022.
While details will be finalized the week before the call, we have confirmed at least two questions that will be asked during this call for feedback:
- What is the best way to ensure fair representation of emerging communities among the Board?
- What involvement should candidates have during the election?
While additional questions may be added, the Movement Strategy and Governance team wants to provide time for community members and affiliates to consider and prepare ideas on the confirmed questions before the call opens. We apologize for not having a complete list of questions at this time. The list of questions should only grow by one or two questions. The intention is to not overwhelm the community with requests, but provide notice and welcome feedback on these important questions.
Do you want to help organize local conversation during this Call?
Reach out if you have any questions or concerns. The Movement Strategy and Governance team will be minimally staffed until January 3. Please excuse any delayed response during this time. We also recognize some community members and affiliates are offline during the December holidays. We apologize if our message has reached you while you are on holiday.
