Wikimedia Foundation’s Timeline of Suffering


The Wikimedia Foundation has recently suffered from lack of communication with the editing community, poor transparency, and sudden loss of staff members. Some of these issues center around the recent Wikimedia Discovery efforts, some seem to stem from senior leadership. Unrest and discontent has been visible both within the editing community and the Wikimedia Foundation itself.

This timeline has been developed by Molly White (User:GorillaWarfare), and compiled and written with immense help from many other people. It was initially published on 22 February 2016 at 12:05UTC, and will be updated as more events unfold or come to light. It was most recently updated at 14:07 on 24 February.
