A need for a change
For more information about the consultation process and how the new policy differs from the old one, please see our previous post.
What happens now?
* We would like to express our sincere thanks to all those that made this policy possible -- we could not have created this policy without a truly interdepartmental effort and the valuable participation and feedback from the Wikimedia global community. Special thanks goes to James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas, and Tiffany Li for their incredible support during this process.
- The Access to Nonpublic Information Policy was also approved by the Board of Trustees on April 25, 2014. Please note, however, certain requirements under that policy will only be triggered once we have completed building necessary tools and have given community members impacted by those requirements notice as outlined in the policy.
