enWiki Non Discrimination policy[edit]

Hey Greg, I'm a sysop over at enWiki, and recently came upon our local version of the WMF Non discrimination policy. Since it was last updated, the WMF version was changed by Jrogers to be more expansive. I thought about copying the new text into the enWiki page, but wanted to check with you two first; the current version refers to "staff or contractors" rather than "users and employees," so it seemed less relevant to a local project. At any rate, seems striaghtforward but figured I should run it by you all before making the change. ~ Amory (utc) 01:39, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

That page just lists the information presented in the global policy. It should probably just be soft redirected to the global policy page, as is done with other global policies that don't require local expansion or clarification. – Ajraddatz (talk) 02:05, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, that's reasonable, doesn't really apply to local wikis anymore I suppose. ~ Amory (utc) 18:21, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
@Amorymeltzer: Essentially, the policy never had any enforcement over local projects and was always meant to be a policy specific to the Wikimedia Foundation's conduct as an organization. The update in part tried to clarify that and remove wording that caused confusion over its actual purpose and scope. I hope that helps over some clarity on possible next steps. Personally, I think a soft redirect makes sense. --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 19:34, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
