Upgrading the wiki tonight
Hi everyone, I'll be upgrading the wiki shortly. The database will be in readonly mode, and may go offline entirely for a while. John Vandenberg 20:27, 1 July 2013 (EST)
Mailing List Moderation
This is just a public note to advise that the members' private mailing list is now on moderation and should only be used for confidential matters. For public reference, below is the text of the message that was sent to subscribers to the private list:
- Hi everyone,
- Over the weekend, our private mailing list was configured to enable moderation. All posts to this list (yes, even mine) are now moderated by the committee. This is in response to the occasional user conduct issues on the private list, and the feedback from members to the proposal to suspend the mailing list.
- I've have been drafting a code of conduct, and these principles will be used as the de facto guidelines for moderation until we have an approved code of conduct. I encourage feedback on the wiki on this code so that we can get as close to something everyone is happy with as we can.
- Most discussions should be held on the open list 'wikimediaau-l'. Please subscribe to it if you haven't already.
- The private mailing list is only to be used for matters that require privacy or confidentiality.
- The private mailing list is intended to be a safe space where participants are treated with respect and are not afraid to venture their opinions. Emails that contain insults, abusive behaviour and bad faith will not be forwarded to the rest of the membership.
- Please keep in mind that the committee can't guarantee that messages sent to this private mailing list will not be forwarded on by some subscriber outside of this list. It is therefore inadvisable to send any highly sensitive information to the list. Please also keep in mind that the moderators are all volunteers, so if your message isn't posted immediately don't fret; it may just mean that we're all either asleep, at work, or otherwise unavailable.
