Membership form[edit]

What is the rationale for requiring a residential address and phone number to join this group? Can you point to any other wikiprojects that collect this information as a prerequisite to membership? Dialectric (talk) 21:19, 12 November 2018 (UTC) CI raised the same concerns on another page for this new user group, and believe the response I received is counter to Wikimedia policies concerning privacy, Dialectric.

I see you had not received a response at all, similar to my own offer of assistance to help with their resources. I have requested review from AffCom to help me understand if I am too privacy sensitive or if this membership request is unreasonable (or something else entirely).--- FULBERT (talk) 03:19, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
I did receive a response, on my talk page, after raising the same issue on User:Dungodung's talk page; he has now made the address and phone sections optional on the membership form.Dialectric (talk) 03:28, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
