Today I got my first Flow notification, yay!
I was surprised by the last line, though:
"Wikimedia Foundation, 149 New Montgomery St., 3rd Fl., San Francisco, CA 94105, USA"
Do we really need this? Are we adding this information in any other notification coming from Wikimedia projects?
Also, is this line hardcoded and therefore a problem for any 3rd party MediaWiki using Flow in the future?
As a Wikimedia contributors I think it gives an unnecessary impression of an official and centralized organization, kind of being in the way of my communications from/to other contributors.
It felt weird to me while being an employee of the WMF, sitting in that exact address and being replied from a project (mediawiki.org) where the Foundation is heavily invested. I can see how weirder will it feel for users of e.g. Catalan Wikipedia when communicating between them thousands of miles away from "149 New Montgomery St..."
I know some corporations do this to the extent that we are almost blind to tese disclaimers but, as opposed to us, they are centralized organizations obsessed about branding, copyrights, and terms & conditions.
