Thanks for this move, Kunal. I have started following it. In the coming days I'll try to write some ideas that could be followed both by the Mastodon account and the Twitter account, if there is a day that the last one wants to be a good representant of the free knowledge ecosysten and the Wikimedia community.

To be clear, this discussion started in December, which has been more
than enough time for our friends and allies at Mozilla, Creative
Commons, Internet Archive, OpenStreetMap and plenty more to set up their
Mastodon presences. There's no excuse for the WMF to not have figured
out which server to sign up on (and I don't think that was ever the
issue anyways).

In any case, I'm primarily writing this email to let people know that we
have started a community-run Wikipedia Mastodon account, which you all
are invited to follow at <>, and more
importantly contribute to, details of which are available at
<>. I hope that collectively
we'll be able to address the issues that have been raised on this list
in the past regarding community involvement and participation in social

We're also celebrating the six month anniversary of Wikis World ("a
Mastodon server for wiki enthusiasts") today. If you haven't already,
now is a great time to sign up - instructions at
