Wikimedia Foundation contractors

This page lists Wikimedia Foundation contractors.

A few ground rules for listing a person here:

  • "contractor" is used loosely here and isn't meant to be derogatory;
  • use reasonable clues to try to determine whether or not someone is being contracted by the Wikimedia Foundation and include references as necessary; a wikimedia.org e-mail address, mailing list announcements and blog posts are all good clues; in addition, there is an official microblogging feed, wikimediaatwork, on Identi.ca and on Twitter to communicate about these positions;
  • do not add people listed at wmf:Staff, wmf:Board of Trustees, or wmf:Advisory Board;
  • use ISO 8601 date format;
  • if you are adding yourself, consider making sure that the "Enable e-mail from other users" option is enabled in your preferences;
  • previous contractors are not removed in general, but the Ended date parameter is added;
  • be bold in updating this page!
