Description

We need an official email to use it the announcements and for the accounts related with WLL, so we have to discuss how. I don't know about it, because I never requested an email to the Wikimedia Foundation, so it is necessary to have a feedback of users with more expertise in this field. At this moment, we need it for T193931 and for T193932, but in the future it will more useful, like the official support for someone who don't want to use another public channel (as a mailing list, Telegram or social networks). Note to keep in mind, we have a temporal email: >>!

Requesting an email address from WMF? I am not sure if they would do such a thing. So far I know only WMF staff have email addresses with @Wikimedia.org

What is more likely is that the domain name wikiloveslove.org is registered by a Wikimedia chapter for the WLL team with an email address.

I agree about the domain @Romaine. We will request them for this :) Wiki loves Africa has something similar too. This model would work well.
