Wikizine is a news letter. It is published (almost) every week. It tries to bring the most important news from the global Wikimedia family for everybody involved with Wikimedia.
The concept of Wikizine:
  • Wikizine is short so it does not take long to read.
  • If possible every topic is only a very short summary. There are URLs with more information.
  • Technical news is considered the most important news.
  • Most of the time, only news is included that is important or interesting for the larger Wikimedia community. News items that are only for a specific wiki is not included.
  • The target audience are sysops and higher, ambassadors, board members of the chapters
  • It is written in English but it is for people from many languages
  • It is hoped that the readers will spread the news that is relevant for their home-wiki to their local community and that they report news back upstream so it can be shared with the rest of the Wikimedia community
  • It is POV. The POV of the editor-in-chief
  • Wikizine is small in the number of staff members and readers
  • Wikizine will never ever knowingly report lies
  • Wikizine makes no guarantee of validity
  • Wikizine considers itself an independent publication
  • Wikizine is not a publication of the Wikimedia Foundation
  • Wikizine is ugly and proud of it. Plain text only, distribution by email
  • Wikizine is available under the GNU Free Documentation License
