This is little strange, I can understand that voting
and nominations are
members only regime but why the community is not allowed to participate
even in Q&A is not clear to me.
If it is so, there should be no wiki page or onwiki discussion, or login
process on wikimedia.in should be membership number based.
As you all know, we at WMIN Elecom initially thought about opening it for
all . But a member informed us non-members of a society must not
interfere with its election process and opening Q&A with candidates to non
members is a violation of this . We asked WMIN to cross check it and as per
the advice we received we restricted the privilege for asking questions to
members alone . But the pages will remain open for observing the election
process for community .
It is documented here
If any community members interested in chapter affairs , take a membership
and participate in next year elections
