OTRS user list
I see I've been removed. Possibly for inactivity? I don't know. I still have an account on the system and have recently been active, and would like to remain listed, if possible. -- OlEnglish (Talk) 09:45, 25 July 2014 (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.

No ombudsman anymore?
- Trijnstel, no. In fact, I have assumed full membership following Lankiveil's death yesterday (see the first change in the edit). The chart is correct as it is now (listing me as Commission member since Feb. 1, 2016 - in advisory capacity from Feb. 1, 2018, to Apr. 23, 2018 -, with my term ending Feb. 1, 2019). If you believe there is a more sensible way to produce this result in the underlying source code, feel free to make the change. — Pajz (talk) 16:53, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
