Welp, we have https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Groups/San_Francisco
, which hasn't done
much lately, and I am partially accountable for that. But that is not completely focused
on Wikipedia, and isn't a potential charter group like
I don't comprehend what the chapters do, exactly, because we have the WMF in town, and
it seems redundant to have a chapter here as well. That may be a good thing, of course.
If you want to form your own group or want to remain
unaffiliated, that is a decision that we will respect.
Thanks for putting that forth, I guess; sounds like we are being visited by benevolent
Is there a deadline coming up on your chapter submission? I get that you want to do
outreach, so maybe you could explain a bit more about yer chapter and all that, and how it
is different from the MediaWiki group.

Hi SF Wikimedians,
I think we are getting near to the formal formation of Cascadia
Wikimedians. There have been occasional questions about whether SF is
forming its own user group or would like to be included in Cascadia. If you
want to form your own group or want to remain unaffiliated, that is a
decision that we will respect. If you would like to be included in Cascadia
please let us know. We are currently proceeding with Oregon, Washington,
and British Columbia.
From my point of view, SF is culturally similar to the three planned
Cascadia territories and there would be an economy of scale in including SF
in Cascadia.The downsides of including SF are geographic stretch and the
complicated California regulatory environment. My feeling is that SF would
do better as its own user group, but we are happy to collaborate with you
or talk about including you in our membership if you are interested in
affiliating with Cascadia.
