Hi! Welcome to the website for the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization that operates Wikipedia and other free knowledge projects.

Should it be noted that Jimmy is indeed not a staff member, and that his omission is not an oversight? I'm sure most viewers (and contributors) have the impression that he is indeed a WMF staff member. -- Zanimum 12:52, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Talk at Meta?

Shouldn't this talk page contain a link to a talk page on Meta, where its content can be discussed? Although this page is probably not "written by the community" I think we could provide some useful input at times. // habj 17:29, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Rename page?

I'm not really sure why this page is called "Current staff"; I suggest renaming it to simply "Staff". Any other opinions?--Eloquence 21:39, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Sure, it sounds better and will also look better at the same time :) E 07:14, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Fellowship recipients

I think Fellowship recipients ought to be moved to a separate page. Calling them "staff" seems odd and wrong. Thoughts? --MZMcBride 02:09, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

For now, we've created a Fellowship Recipient Section to this page to list Steven Walling who is being categorized during his year with us as an employee. We're blogging about the recipients and adding their announcements and links to the feed/streams on Identi.ca and Twitter. --Daniel Phelps 22:07, 8 October 2010 (UTC) (talkcontribs)
I agree. Also, the UX section ought to be merged into the Tech section (and some positions updated) since there are no longer any "UX programs". guillom 16:06, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
There is some reorganization to the Tech depts courtesy of the Strategic Plan. We're working on a way to clarify this new organization on the Staff page and should have that updated shortly (within the next 2-3 weeks). --Daniel Phelps 22:07, 8 October 2010 (UTC) (talkcontribs)

m:Wikimedia Foundation contractors

Should the "See also" section include a link to m:Wikimedia Foundation contractors? --MZMcBride 06:57, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Missing individuals?

Edits at Template talk:Staff and contractors

Hi folks - I've made some edits to the staff and contractors template talk page... Thanks JayWalsh 01:18, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Said in such quiet desperation... :-) --MZMcBride 01:35, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Box at the bottom of the page

Currently, the box that is placed at the bottom of this page says (my underline):

All images are available under the Creative Commons Attribution License or the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License. For licensing and other information about any of the images seen on this page, please go to Wikimedia Commons and click on the particular image you would like more information about. Thanks!

I am somehow puzzled as to how to find those images from between over 13 million others basing on just how they look like... Surely there is an easier way to find them? :-) odder 20:18, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi odder, if you click on that Commons link you will find a category page that consists of only those images. You still have to look, but it's a lot less than 13 million ;) heather walls (talk) 04:02, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
