After you discussed this quite a long time ago and then brought it back up
last night this is the new 'fundraiser(a)lists.wikimedia.org' mailing list.
The old 'fundraising' mailing list has been closed down and will moderate
The current list probably needs a bit of care but I need to go to bed again
and so that's going to have to happen later :). It is set up as *public
join and with public archives * but is not currently shown on the list of
I am currently still a list admin though I would like to devolve that as
soon as I can :)
Florence is also a list admin as she was one on the old list
Bryony Jones, the WMF Fundraising Project Manager, is also a new list
admin. I will be staying on to help make sure she's ok then probably bowing
I would highly recommend that another community member also get the list
admin flag but that (and who) is totally up to you all. If pushed I would
probably nominate The Helpful One especially with his list admin experience.
Also: Another topic for discussion. When talking with Megan about this
list change today she wondered if it was really that necessary now that we
were also moving to everything being posted on Wikimedia-l. Do we really
need another list? After talking to a couple list members off list I
decided to still do the list change since I had an opening and it might
take forever again for me to do it if we waited but I do want to open up
this discussion. Do we need this list? Is it basically redundant now or
does it still server a purpose?
