Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer

Wikipedia:Media Viewer/June 2014 RfC - Wikipedia:Media Viewer#How to turn it off

Use {{Reflist|30em}} instead of {{Reflist|2}}

Would you mind...[edit]

...if I used this on my user page? The Media Viewer is something I have issue with. I figured it would be polite to ask before I just copied it. - Aoidh (talk) 09:17, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Please do. I consider this to be a very significant moment in Wikipedia history. Unless the community get it together to raise their concerns with the Foundation, I can see that Wikipedia and its mission will effectively become the property of the folks at WMF, and the community will become unpaid, unprotected, and disenfranchised assistants to the Foundation. I'm not convinced that a Wikipedia fork would be effective; I would rather work with the individuals at WMF to improve relations and communication and also to establish appropriate procedure for conducting changes to Wikipedia. I think that's our task. SilkTork ✔Tea time 09:40, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
I agree, and Yes check.svg Done. Thanks. I don't like Media Viewer, but the way it's been handled is a sign of something I like even less. There aren't many things that would cause me to just stop contributing to Wikipedia entirely, but this mess, if it continues to become more and more of a mess, would likely be it. I sincerely hope it doesn't come to that. - Aoidh (talk) 10:01, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
