The Wikipedia Signpost


From the editor

By Ral315, 18 February 2008

This week, I'd like to congratulate and thank Michael Snow, who officially leaves the Signpost this week with his appointment to the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation (see related story). Michael was, of course, the original founder of the Signpost, serving as editor-in-chief from January 2005 through August 2005, and as a regular contributing writer since then. Over more than three years of writing, Michael contributed more than 300 articles, making him, by far, the most active writer we've had. Michael also helped me adjust into the role as editor-in-chief, and I'll always be grateful for that.

With Michael's departure, our usual need for writers is amplified. For example, due to lack of staffing, we were unable to write an article about press coverage of Wikipedia's usage of images of Muhammad, although coverage was mentioned in the "In the news" report. Those interested in helping out, please contact me.

Thanks for reading the Signpost.
