Welcome to the Wikimedia Foundation website.

Welcome

Thanks for being here!

This wiki does not exactly follow the same rules as the other Wikimedia projects, since it is not open to all for editing, and in case of disagreement, the organ of decision will be the Board. A rule of thumb, however, is if we gave you access, that means we trust you. So please, do not be shy in editing this site. There is ample work for everyone :-)

How to obtain an account on this site

Please request an account on Request for an account on the Foundation wiki. Please give your username, email address and reasons you need an account. To ensure users are already familiar with the policies of at least one Wikimedia project, we do ask that only administrators apply for an account. If you are not already an administrator, please see the request for adminship page on your local wiki (this should be linked from Wikimedia projects).

Administrators on this wiki

Administrators include some board and staff members, plus other users involved with the Foundation, usually through membership of the Communications committee. There are no current plans to have any other sysops.

Since the users here have been approved to edit this site, vandalism is not an issue here and we will try to have as few pages protected as possible.

To request deletion or (un)protection of pages, make a request on m:Foundation wiki feedback. Categories, templates, subpages of your userpage or any other trivial deletions could be requested by placing {{delete}} on the page.

Other points

If your page has translations in multiple languages, please don't forget to add the other languages bar to your page.

To aid in communication, please authenticate your email address. Then other editors can mail you directly. Thanks!

For those willing to help with translations, please see meta:Translation requests/WMF.

All organisational pages may be found in the Foundation wiki organisation category.

If you made any major edit which you feel could be controversial or incorrect, please list the page at Foundation wiki feedback or make a post to wikimedia-l for further discussion.
