Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Elections 2015Edit
Dear candidate. My general opinion about administration of Wikimedia is negative. Many texts and images had been removed with pretext of protection of rights of the owners of the copyright owners. The special permissions by the copyright owners were just ignored, and removed together with the files. In particular, this refers to images of the Soviet dissidents and their texts.
Below I suggest only few examples in order to let you know what is happening: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Sofiya_Kalistratova&oldid=649939072 https://ru.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Софья_Васильевна_Каллистратова&oldid=93595 https://ru.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Леонард_Борисович_Терновский&type=revision&diff=1312548&oldid=585736
I investigated the case and I revealed that many removals were performed by bureaucrat Lozman, who has absolutely no experience with obtaining permission from the copyright owners and does not even remember, who made him bureaucrat. However, this is only example.
Sorry for being late, but I just received the invitation to vote. You still have two days to change my opinion about at least one of the candidates suggested. One example of complain by the author is available at site TORI, http://mizugadro.mydns.jp/t/index.php/Kouznetsov,_permission I mention it because it has English version, although many Russian authors were offended in the similar way.
Now I formulate the question:
Do you think it is still possible to handle the cases mentioned?
Yes, I do.
Do you think that you can find time to deal with the cases mentioned?
I do not know in what capacity I can help people out in such situations. But yes, regardless of the outcome of elections, I hope that even as a volunteer I am deeply interested in communities and solving the problems associated with them. As examples, you see my efforts in reaching out to Esperanto Wikipedians or Punjabi Wikipedians to study their editing cultures, specific issues, etc, when I am not a Wikipedian in either of the languages.
