"Official WMF answers"?[edit]

Would you say that this page is where people looking for what's in the title should be sent to, as a default? Or is the Board noticeboard the venue for that? (An answer to this question may probably be usefully documented somewhere.) TY! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 14:22, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi Elitre (WMF)! This is a little bit of a tough question to answer, because the answer isn't 100% one or the other. Perhaps the most accurate answer is to start with the fact that this page is open to everyone to ask or answer questions. That said, WMF staff do monitor this page, and we will aim to provide feedback that is the Foundation's view on a given subject. Like in most contexts, though, staffers who provide answers here often rely on their personal knowledge. If a question arrives to this page to which the answer requires input from other staff, the WRC team will do its best to either point the asker to a better venue, or bring the question to the attention of the intended recipient.
