Is there a reason why the WMF does not post to Diaspora? – Thx!--Aschmidt (talk) 20:34, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

I can speak for the MediaWiki handler: we don't do it because we have enough trying to maintain, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. If you (or someone you know) want to help spreading MediaWiki news to Diaspora, let's talk. Just make your request at the mw:Social media discussion page. See this post and the responses in that thread for a similar request related to (talk) 18:17, 24 December 2012 (UTC)


Why was this page recently made a duplicate of Microblogging handles? There's no reason to have two lists for the same things, it's very confusing. --Nemo 13:20, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

No opposition in months, hence I've split the listing out and included the lists here. --Nemo 08:33, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
Should we just remove the list from this page and keep the Microblogging Handles and Facebook pages as the master lists? I see your logic in asking the question and think it would be less confusing without the duplication. Matthew (WMF) (talk) 23:21, 9 May 2013 (UTC)


Fellows used to blog on the WMF blog; individual engagement grantee blog on their own and not even on Planet Wikimedia.[1] [2] [3] Should those be included somewhere? --Nemo 08:23, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Proposed chapters[edit]

Can we add proposed chapters and chapters in discussion, specifically Wikimedia Botswana, to the list? PiRSquared17 (talk) 16:56, 25 April 2013 (UTC)


Hmmm... this is duplicated a little bit over on the Reports page. Maybe we should consolidate. Seems like this is better kept-up-to-date? (maybe?) -- phoebe | talk 19:38, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, we're looking into it. The address was receiving emails from outside the group fine as late as a month ago. Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 16:33, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
Should be fixed now. Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 01:50, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

kk:[edit] has a nasty sitenotice with facebook and twitter logos linking to some community page. I'm not sure where to maintain a list of such ads. --Nemo 10:04, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Have you left a local note there asking for them to remove it?  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:30, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
kk:Қатысушы_талқылауы:Arystanbek#Usage_of_logos. Would you check if it's fixed? --M/ (talk) 11:12, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for contacting them. They removed the logos but there's still a link in sitenotice. I don't have the energies to figure out guidelines for such usage of sitenotice (and sidebar or equally visible things), I'm not sure what's acceptable and what's not. But I think the social media handles lists would use some note on which ones are heavily advertised from Wikimedia projects. --Nemo 16:48, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

In the meanwhile I've been adding notes to Microblogging handles and Facebook pages when I find an account advertised from sitenotice or sidebar. Krenair now made a list which should help increase coverage. It doesn't include links embedded in sidebar/sitenotice via templates. --Nemo 13:37, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

wikitech:Incident response#Communicating with the public[edit]

Is this up to date? --Nemo 21:52, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

It is now :) Thank you for the note. Let me know if you find other outdated information! Guillaume (WMF) (talk) 17:28, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Great, thanks. --Nemo 13:18, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Facebook group[edit]

It is inappropriate to suggest that conversations on a Wikimedia Foundation official activity be conducted on a Facebook group, especially a closed one. What happens there? What could be moved in an open source medium? Nemo 06:52, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
