Terms of Use in Russian

There is a sentence in the Russian translation of Terms of Use: "необходимые для поддержания и развития многоязычных вики-проектов и их отдельных разделов (перечисленных здесь) и прочих начинаний, служащих этой миссии." The link from 'здесь' (Russian for 'here') doesn't work: it's a red link. ParticipantOfTheEncyclopedia (talk) 17:14, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

wmf:Terms of Use/Phabricator

“other material […], to which you hold the copyright”. The relative clause here is defining and should not be separated with a comma. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 16:34, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, that comma closed the apposition starting with "or". 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 21:43, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

Map terms of use: User agent policy impossible to comply with in the browser

@DTankersley (WMF): The Wikimedia map tile server sets this header: access-control-allow-headers: accept, x-requested-with, content-type. But the Map terms of use require setting the User-Agent header, which that CORS header doesn't allow. Additionally, browser JS can't set the User-Agent header at all. I think Api-User-Agent should be added to that CORS header, and the policy should require either User-Agent or Api-User-Agent be set. Thanks! --SixTwoEight (talk) 16:01, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

@SixTwoEight: Thanks for raising it, I'm moving this discussion to so this can be investigated and actionized. Please let me know if you have any questions. --MSantos (WMF) (talk) 14:28, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

Re: Resolution:Board Statement on Community Health (2020)

I just read this resolution, & after wading thru all of the iterations of "Whereas", I expected to find an actual statement of, well, something, only to find that the Board resolved:

that the Board of Trustees hereby approves a new statement on community health.

So, what is this new statement on community health? The Board resolution apparently forgot to state what it is, or even providing a link to what they have approved. (I'll forego any snark about imprecise thinking: I'm honestly curious about what the Board says on the subject.) -- Llywrch (talk) 08:20, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

@Llywrch: The statement is available here: Wikimedia Foundation Board noticeboard/May 2020 - Board of Trustees on Healthy Community Culture, Inclusivity, and Safe Spaces and linked from the Board resolution under References (which is generally how they format links in their resolutions). I will mention idea of linking within the resolution text as well. --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 17:57, 8 June 2020 (UTC)
Yes, linking it would be helpful. Thanks for the prompt reply. -- Llywrch (talk) 18:22, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

Resolution missing from list

wmf:Resolution:Appointing Kelly Battles to WMF Board is not listed on wmf:Resolutions; it should be added there. Unless it's known how this was missed, I'd recommend doing a scan over all resolutions to make sure that none are missing from the list. --Yair rand (talk) 05:48, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
