Launching to report on Japanese projects
I'm glad to talk with you yesterday. I launched writing report pages of Japanese projects. See Wikimedia Japan/Reports.
FYI - a miss at CCI
In looking at this for something recent, I noticed that a lot of the earlier stuff was lost. I found that odd. This was one of the many copyright investigations I performed (the best part was it dealt with my own page that ItsLassieTime helped with when I got her to stop plagiarizing for a while and do honest work). None of the Kathyrncelestewright articles were listed on the CCI page. I would also look at some of the GAN pages because there were a few that had plagiarism related concerns.

Copyright on output (including graphs) from both Foundationand associate sites
There's a number of graphical outputs and others which are produced and have no license details. In particular the image I uploaded at File:Reqstats-monthly-20121029171901-pmpta-flatline.png (Commons) which comes from an associated site had no license, so it was deleted.
Also Foundation stuff such as http://nagios.wmflabs.org/cgi-bin/nagios3/trends.cgi?host=aggregator-test1.pmtpa.wmflabs&service=Current+Load has no license given.
Is this (getting CC-BY-3 licenses wherever possible) something that the Foundation can take on?
- Hi, Rich. :) I'd have to ask you to clarify what you mean, but I also suspect you're asking the wrong me. :D If you're asking something of me in my staff capacity, would you mind terribly taking this request to me to User talk:Mdennis (WMF)? I want to be sure that I'm not mixing my roles, which is not permitted. (And it's pure luck that I happened by here, as I typically never come to Meta while logged in as Moonriddengirl.) I'd really appreciate it if you could provide a little more context if you do. :) I'm not sure if you're asking me to have the Wikimedia Foundation put licensing terms on Wikimedia Labs or ask permission from somebody for content. I'm happy to try to help, but I'm not sure what to do. --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 01:22, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.
An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.
The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.
Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign
If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnumwikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.
