Announcing... CommonsTicker

Hello,

CommonsTicker is a special tool created by
(commons:,meta:,:de:w:)User:Duesentrieb to allow for greater
communication and transparency between the Commons and local projects
(all projects, all languages) that use the Commons. When it is set up,
a log page is created and a bot posts updates about any critical
events that occur to any Commons images that are being used by that
project. Critical events are: image replacement (a new version of an
image being uploaded over the top of an existing one), an image being
marked or unmarked with a deletion tag (including no source, etc), and
an image being deleted.

This allows local project users to immediately identify any images
that have been nominated for deletion, giving them plenty of notice to
take part in the deletion discussion, as well as checking that image
replacements are not vandalism and removing any red links from deleted
images.

CommonsTicker is completely translatable (if you provide a
translation). All it needs to be set up is a project admin to
"sponsor" it through the early days. Now taking requests! :)

(There are also Tickers already set up in German, Indonesian, Italian,
Dutch, Chinese and Slovak.)

Lombard wiktionary

Hello,
  I am sysop at Lombard wikipedia. We would like a Lombard 
wiktionary to be created, so I would like to ask you if this item should be 
discussed at metawiki or if it's enough that a Lombard wikipedia exists. 
Maybe I had already made such a request: if so, and if a Lombard 
wiktionary is being created, please ignore this and let me apologize for 
duplicating request.
      Sincerely yours,
      Claudi Meneghin

This request might be better placed on the Wiktech list.

Re: [Foundation-l] the easy way or the less easy way


FYI; part of a long thread on foundation governance and structure.

Those interested in discussions about foundation membership, the 
meta-organization of the projects, and the future of the foundation :
you may want to join or browse foundation-l.  I don't know where these 
conversations will take place in the future, but at present they seem to 
be gathering in frequency and length on that list, and long-ranging 
decisions are being made over the next few months.

Hiya,

Thanks for the long and insightful posts to this list recently.
Some quick thoughts.

> ARTICLE III - MEMBERSHIP
> The Foundation shall have no members.

Opt-in membership is useful; I always liked the idea, regardless of
whether or how dues were set up.
