Request again[edit]

Hello, can I point out (again) that I was not chair of WMUK when QRpedia was invented. It was already installed in Derby Museum on April 9th. I was merely a volunteer Wikipedian in Residence (ie unpaid). I was elected chair on April 16th - a week later. THis may seem minor but it feeds misunderstandings like the quoter late where it says "found that the amount of time taken to resolve ownership". There was NO resolution required of ownership! It belonged to me and Terence. It did take a long time. When we started WMUK was a company and on my watch it became a registered charity. We employed staff. We opened our first office. We spent time having regular meetings with WMF. Other stuff was happening! You will see that the domains have finally been transferred due to the intercession of the new chair of WMUK.

So thanks to whoever picks this up. Could you 1. Fix that I was a volunteer and part-time wikipedian in Residence (first British WIR!) 2. There has never been a problem with "resolving ownership" - it was ours until very recently when the IPR was donated to WMUK. 3. Ownership now lies with WMUK.

  1. I've removed the "chairman" part as being unsourced. I've not added anything about WIR because I can't immediately see a source making clear (to me) that was the case at the time or exactly how it was relevant.
  2. The "amount of time" clause seems to accurately reflect the source cited, so I have not changed it. It might perhaps be possible to expand and clarify this section slightly with an alternative source which is clearer about the situation?
  3. Yes this needs updating. What's the best source available?
You might want to add a "COI edit request" template here... I can't remember quite where the template for that is located. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 16:44, 27 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  1. Thanks - the WIR is sourceable but the important point was that I was not an WMUK director or chair. That just allows spin.
  2. Its up to you to decide if claiming that a "resolution" was possible (when the ownership was 100% clear) is just spin. No one doubts that it took a long time before it was donated..... but that is the nature of giving. Its voluntary.- having an investigation into why you haven't received a gift yet is a bit odd IMO.
  3. I'm not sure there is a good one. But a WHOIS on the domains should be without spin. Victuallers (talk) 17:26, 27 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Tutu House has a Joburgpedia plaque
Desmond Tutu sad death has been reported with this plaque lurking in the background. I wasn't sure if this one (that was made in Monmouth) had been installed, so I was thrill to see it albeit in a sad BBC news item. Victuallers (talk) 20:13, 27 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
