The nameserver is updated and appears to be working!
Great. We are updating with the registrar now.
Aug 22 2019
Hi @tramm, can you let me know when your nameservers are configured? The registry requires this, and the update will not complete (on our side) until the new servers are configured.
@tramm, we're in the process of changing the nameserver now.

@tramm I wanted to confirm that we got your email and we're looking into it. Chuck is out of office for the next few days, following his work at Wikimania. I'll see if there's anything we can do before he returns given Estonian Wikipedia's August 24 anniversary.

Thanks, @Charlotte. I've replied via email

I support @ssingh's request. Access would help his work on a project he's doing as a Ford-Mozilla Open Web Fellow for Wikimedia.

Works! Thanks so much for fixing this.

I am no longer able to edit the pad either now. I get:

@Dzahn Yes, I successfully edited the document. Thank you!

@Aklapper I spoke too soon -- I tried to create a pad, but got the error:

@Bawolff Thanks for working on this. For the purpose of coordinating our announcement, what is the estimated time this will be done tomorrow morning?

I spoke with @Doc_James at the Wikimedia Conference this spring, and he asked me to clarify the requirements for non-CC0 content in tabular data.

Exactly what I wanted. Thank you!

This is the form that people fill out to submit an application to become a Wikimedia User Group. I don't see a problem with restricting the form to logged-in users, since having an active Wikimedian involved is part of the user group eligibility requirements.

We are discussing the data publication over email, and Justin is still helping resolve a bug in the report that started on December 1. There is still a need for data access, and April is a reasonable estimate.

I just saw Flickr announced their top 2017 photos, as reference: http://digg.com/2017/flickr-top-photos
The call to action should be simple enough that everyone can do it, and ideally should have some sort of social multiplier. I'd rather have something that's actually useful (as opposed to just a passive gesture).

Hey @Base, @debt and I spoke this afternoon. I can share more about why we only accept CC0-released data in the Data namespace at this point. This will take me a few days to prepare a public response from the legal team, but I wanted to let you know that we received the question.

We can host a copy on Meta Wiki for translation, as long as the official version stays on Foundation Wiki.

Good to go. Thanks!

I'll follow up with you via email. There are a few steps before we change ownership.
I think it's with Mule. If there is nothing sensitive in the repo (eg no private keys, etc), then I want to transfer ownership to the Wikimedia Github org and make it open so this kind of thing is easier to solve.
I believe this feature is in the Wordpress skin. I'll get in touch with designers and find the code. @Varnent, would you be able to fix it?
Apr 18 2017
Thanks Nuria. Let me know when you're ready for review.
Apr 1 2017
Hey, sorry I think I missed that date. I'm working on it now, but running a little slow due to the conference. What if we send to them end of next week? I can send to you earlier.

A specific story from 2016 would make a good introductory hook.
Mar 24 2017
Looking forward to it!

What about moving this to 2017? I like t-shirts, but I think it will be more useful to think about this for the upcoming year.
We chatted about the results, but we haven't yet turned it into a list of TODOs.
The results of the meeting are now up at Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments International Team meeting 2017.

I recommend the GPLv3. If you have a preference for Apache 2.0, please shoot me an email.

@mmodell: Which of these contributions were made by Wikimedia Foundation staff as part of their work? We can help reach out to people to get their agreement if you need help.
