About this board (talkcontribs)

Results may certainly be skewed toward a less privacy-focused group of individuals. Or just post the survey questions here.

Please do not take part in case of privacy concerns. This decision is up to you - which is good.

Because you can make a survey in Google Docs.

Declining participation in the Google Docs survey. I second the comment that this format produces a data bias. I therefore include a comment, giving one of the viewpoints the survey is systemically biassed against:

Mediawiki is copyleft software; I use it partly to allow independence from companies like Google. To the extent that it is dependent on proprietary third-party tools, I do not want to contribute to it or use it. I do not want Mediawiki tools that interface with or use proprietary software, or any software that is not controlled by its users.

I realize you take large donations from Google. This causes conflicts with the interests of Mediawiki users and Wikimedia wiki editors. Such conflicts of interest harm the Wikimedia Foundation's goals. HLHJ (talk) 01:46, 7 September 2020 (UTC) (talkcontribs)

There's no need to use Google. There are privacy-friendly alternatives. Example: hxxps://

What does it exactly means?

This means, spending most of your wiki life within Wikimedia Foundation project communities. We believe to have a fairly good idea of what is going on there, so this is about input from outside communities/users.

MediaWiki should be improved. It is rubbish.

It should end at August 31 2020.
