This was a draft for a blog post that has since been published at https://blog.wikimedia.org/2014/06/16/change-terms-of-use-requirements-for-disclosure/
이용 약관 변경: 공개 요건
오늘 우리는 이용 약관에 중요한 변경을 가하고 있습니다. 이 변경은 모든 위키미디어 프로젝트에서 유료 편집을 숨기는 것에 대한 금지를 명확히 하고 강화할 것입니다.
매달 5억 명의 사람들이 지식의 원천으로 위키백과를 사용합니다. 위키백과의 커뮤니티 편집자는 문서의 정확성과 투명성 및 객관성을 유지하기 위해 끊임없이 노력합니다. 이를 위해서는 이해 상충을 식별하고 편견을 제거해야합니다. 유료 편집은 이러한 편견의 원인이 될 수 있습니다. 특히 편집 내용이 본질적으로 프로모션이거나 유료 고객의 이익을 위한 경우에 그렇습니다. 위키미디어 재단은 문서에 홍보 콘텐츠가 없도록 유지하려는 위키백과 커뮤니티의 노력을 지속적으로 지원하기 위해 최선을 다하고 있습니다.
This change adds a new subsection to Section 4, Refraining from Certain Activities, on “Paid Contributions without Disclosure.” The Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation has issued a letter explaining the change. We have also prepared an FAQ that helps explain how the change applies in specific instances. We encourage you to read the full update, letter, and FAQ, but the most important points are:
- If you edit as a volunteer and for fun, nothing changes. Please keep editing! You’re part of an amazing community of volunteers contributing to an unprecedented resource of free information available to the whole world.
- If you are employed by a gallery, library, archive, museum (GLAM), or similar institution that may pay employees to make good faith contributions in your area of expertise and not about your institution, you are also welcome to edit! The FAQ provides more guidance on when you should provide disclosure.
- Individual Wikimedia projects may discuss and implement alternative disclosure policies appropriate to their particular needs, as explained at greater length in the FAQ.
Why are we making a change?
As explained in October of 2013, we believe that undisclosed paid advocacy editing is a black hat practice that can threaten the trust of Wikimedia’s volunteers and readers. We have serious concerns about the way that such editing affects the neutrality and reliability of Wikipedia.
How did we make the change?
Throughout February and March, the Wikimedia community extensively discussed the issue of undisclosed paid editing, resulting in 320,000 words of discussion in various languages and 6.3 million views of the proposal. The discussion was overwhelmingly supportive of the change. It also provided constructive criticisms that helped refine the amendment, and led us to improve our planned FAQ to provide more context and better examples.
At the meeting of the WMF Board of Trustees in April, members of the Board reviewed the change and results of the public consultation. After their discussion, they approved the amendment. The Wikimedia Foundation will continue to monitor the effectiveness of the amendment, and remain open to changes as necessary to improve it.
이 다음에는 무슨 일이 일어날까?
This change is effective immediately. We are notifying all users with banner messages on all Wikimedia projects.
Thanks everyone who has contributed to the discussion on this important issue. Your concerns elevated and clarified the issue in a manner that helped improve the original proposed amendment. Your input and feedback ensured a strong, yet appropriate, policy that we expect will strengthen the projects overall.
