=== Technical news ===

[X_FORWARD] An old problem : users who have done nothing wrong are blocked
because the IP they are using is used by others who share the same ISP.  This
has been known as the "bug 550" problem.  In some cases a solution is now
possible : when the ISP provides an "X-Forwarded-For" [XFF] header. Users of
those ISPs have their real local IP address included when contacting a
webserver.  The configuration of the wiki can be changed so that the IP address
provided in the XFF header is used for the identification on the wikis and
blocks, at least when provided from specific IP addresses.  Users from these
ISPs can then edit even when other users on the same network have been
blocked.

[Board] member of the Wikimedia Foundation and vice-president of Wikia, Angela Beesley, has resigned
from the
Board of the WMF. Angela emphasizes that her reason for resignation is not another board member's fault.
She is only leaving the Board, and will continue to stay involved with Wikipedia and with the Australian
Chapter and Wikia. An election to replace the position of Angela on the board is expected.
