Note to people wanting to send me a messageEdit
I very rarely come on here, so if you want to contact me and want an answer, please do so at en:User talk:Peridon. If you really don't care, you can post here and I might see your message a couple of years later (and I probably won't bother replying in that case...). Peridon (talk) 17:26, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitionsEdit
The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.
If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.
