Hi, The address of Wikimedia France on page https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Contact_us is wrong : no more "26-28 rue de Londres 75009 Paris", but "40 rue de Cléry 75002 Paris". and same error in all languages (ex: https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Nous_contacter). See their website. Thanks! Zetud (talk) 09:59, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Linking to team home pages for teams listed on "Staff and contractors"[edit]

Could more teams please link to their corresponding information pages from their headings, to make it easier for anyone to find more information what each team works on plus potential contact information? (The information is available anyway, it's just about linking...)

Thanks in advance. --Malyacko (talk) 22:49, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

Regarding Ways to Give/nl[edit]

Not sure where the translations can be edited these days - but the Dutch translation of the bank transfer is slightly confusing according to one donor. I would suggest to change "Zolang u stortte op het juiste rekeningnummer zal uw betaling correct ontvangen zijn." (in the future past tense) to "Zolang u stort op het juiste rekeningnummer zal uw betaling correct ontvangen worden." (future tense).

I also noticed a minor interpunction error at the end of the first paragraph (two full stops in immediate succession). Thanks! Effeietsanders (talk) 14:21, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Regarding Contact us[edit]

Hi,

I was reading your article on Oetzi, the Iceman, and think that his dates in the side column are backwards. He should be listed as born ca. 3345 BC and as having died ca. 3300 BC. Please disregard if I am mistaken.

Thank you!

donations[edit]

You are asking, in BIG letters, to make a donation to your project.

Even though I agree with the fact your task should be supported, your privacy policy for donors (which should indeed be called “policy for the absence of privacy”) is absolutely unacceptable.

Regarding Stories[edit]

This page is very large, and needs section and subsection headers. Or it should be split into subpages. The page is current 700KB. --George Ho (talk) 02:27, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

Простота пожертвований[edit]

Не хочу делиться персональной информацией, но хочу сделать пожертвование. Простой адрес биткоина есть? Платёжной карты? Здесь нужно регистрироваться https://www.coinbase.com/checkouts/81b41f8984dd5544ad4246a1dd0be0a9. Зачем? Вывесьте адрес + поле для коммента для отчёта (моего, типа на адрес сброшено тогда-то).

I wish we can create an account on Wikimedia for the purpose of customizing the way WMF looks. Other than that, users cannot edit any namespace unless if their account is activated here. UpsandDowns1234 (🗨) 00:34, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Regarding wikimediafoundation.org (Resolution:Licensing policy)[edit]

1) Please do restore Resolution:Licensing_policy page to earlier previous version (of December 2008) since https://freedomdefined.org/Definition this portal is functioning again.

2) Please store archive copy of https://freedomdefined.org/Definition (along with multi language translations) and also link for reference some where; so if https://freedomdefined.org/Definition website becomes non-functional again, in any case one should be able to refer the text

Thanks and regards

Regarding Tax Deductibility/fr[edit]

Hello,

Could you please add information for the main french speaking country, especially Switzerland and Belgium?

Best,

--AntonierCH(d) 08:07, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

Regarding Talk:Tax Deductibility/fr[edit]

Hello, dears, Foundation cousins,
(Sorry for my rusty english). My pseudo is Kikuyu3, a WP Fr editor, a bit active till recently within the french chapter WM Fr.
Some suggestion to be introduced to this text intended to french speaking persons :

  • the title should be changed to french "Déduction fiscale", as it is more likely to be seeked for than the english "Tax Deductibility/fr" ;
  • section France should be added some sentence like "If you pay income revenue taxes in France, you may consider donating directly to the french chapter Wikimedia France (https://www.wikimedia.fr/). Under certain conditions, it gives you the right to be partly (66 % ) refunded ; please visit https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impôt sur le revenu (France)#Les réductions d'impôt on wikipdédia in french or the specific page on the website of the Ministère des Finances : https://www.economie.gouv.fr/cedef/reductions-impots-dons-aux-oeuvres."
  • United Kingdom : there should be a specific section, titled "Royaume-Uni" as there are plenty of french speaking workers installed for a while elesewhere in this area. The present sentence about the Gift Aid is somehow hidden in the section other countries. Last : the wording of the end of the sentence should better be either "... s'appliquera pas aux dons alloués à la Wikimedia Foundation" or either "s'appliquera pas aux dons établis au bénéfice de la Wikimedia Foundation".
  • Switzerland : as per https://www.wikimedia.ch/fr/faire-un-don/dduction-fiscale/ it seems the whole donation may be deducted.
  • I have juste sent an email to the Belgium chapter so as they send you the specific page to inform your readers.
  • in the section Autres pays, the Note importante should be separated (line feed).

In general, I think this text is not sincere, in which it does not inform completely the donator that he can benefit of tax deductions, giving his money to a chapter instead of the Foundation. Every year, some of them complain about this, telling how they feel it dishonest. We probably loose some of them the following year. Hope a solution will be found.

Cordialement, et Hop ! Kikuyu3 (talk) 16:16, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

Regarding wikimediafoundation.org[edit]

Bom dia. Vou me comunicar em português, pois assim é mais fácil para mim. No Brasil, as pessoas desconfiam muito do sistema de pagamento via internet. Para nós brasileiros é mais fácil o pagamento via boleto (um documento pagável via código de barras). Tentei contribuir com R$10,00, mas deu falhas. A opção via boleto ajudaria muito.
