The Wikimedia projects are written by you—contributors from all over the world. However, sometimes, governments or officials ask us to allow them to control certain articles. We received a request in November 2019 from a government in the Americas that wanted to control articles about its First Lady on English and Spanish Wikipedia. We explained to them how Wikipedia works, and referred the requestors to the communities of volunteer editors. They can post on articles’ Talk pages, or write directly to the various language volunteer response teams, explaining the updates they’d like to see made to the articles, and providing reliable sources in support of those changes.
