User:Az1568/WMF Wiki/Wikimedia:Welcome

Welcome to the Wikimedia Foundation website.


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 that 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 siteEdit

Please, request an account on m:Request for an account on the Foundation wiki. Creation of an account is not granted automatically and is subject to approval by the Board.

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 m:Wikimedia projects).

Administrators on this wikiEdit

Administrators are Anthere and Jimmy Wales as Board members, Angela as a former Board member and Daniel Mayer as Wikimedia's CFO, Michael Snow as Chair of Wikimedia Communication Committee; Jd, Aphaia, and David Gerard as members of Communication 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 delete a page : list the page on m:Wikimedia site feedback#Admin noticeboard. Categories, templates, subpages of your userpage or any other trivial deletions could be requested by placing the pages into Category:Deleteme.

To un/protect a page : also list the page on m:Wikimedia site feedback#Admin noticeboard

Other pointsEdit

If you create a page, please list the page at Wikimedia:Site map. And if your page has equivalent, please don't forget to include language 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 Translation requests/WMF (meta).

All organisational pages may be found in the Foundationwiki organisation category.

If you made any major edit which you feel could be controversial or incorrect, please list the page at Wikimedia:Babel or make a post to foundation-l for further discussion.
