Great concept -- this should be for all people in all countries! A more compelling message, instantly gets everyone to understand how it affects them as well as everyone else in the world. Sj (talk) 15:00, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Other Wikimedia projects?[edit | edit source]

I haven't seen any mention of whether and how Wikimedia Commons or other Wikimedia projects would be included in this scheme - any pointers? Thanks! --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 13:22, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

This is wrong[edit | edit source]

The basis of the internet is that each website is equal, no priority be given to specific sites. The wikimedia foundation is for net neutrality and yet this violates that principle, admittedly it violates it in a relatively good way, but it's violates it nonetheless.

Also why should developing countries get it free and not developed countries, there are poor people in so called developed countries.

I appreciate the idea behind this, but it can't exist fairly. To be fairer it must extend to other basic sites (those whose aim is not to promote themselves, eg wikipedia is all about knowledge, whereas a charities websites is to promote itself), and to all countries, even then it doesn't conform to the idea of net neutrality. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 79.75.103.166 (talkcontribs) 17:03, 15 October 2012‎

Can someone help clean the status section[edit | edit source]

Can someone help collapse the status section into a single entry on the contents box? As it is right now, it's several entries and looks very strange. Reason I am not doing this myself is that the status is tied to the infobox and another page, and I don't want to screw it up.

This was due to a bug in the LabeledSectionTransclusion extension introduced with MediaWiki 1.21/wmf6. It has now been fixed. guillom 20:14, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Thoughts on moving this to Meta?[edit | edit source]

As the significance of this page grows as a central source for WP zero, does anyone have reason on why this shouldn't be moved to meta? Akapoor (WMF) (talk) 20:46, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Moving most of this to Foundation Wiki[edit | edit source]

We will likely be moving most of this information to Foundation wiki, similar to other manager programs (eg Education, GLAM, Grants). The Engineering information, along with community discussion areas will remain on MediaWiki / Meta. If there are any concerns, questions, or suggestions, please chime in.

USA?[edit | edit source]

Parts of the United States are now decimated by decades of rule by an elite, corporatist aristocracy. Folks in these areas need just as much help as many others do in "developing countries". Why not also offer this service in these class-war torn areas of the United States as well?
