This article is one of the many locally that misunderstands how
It would be good as WikimediaZA to respond to these kind of things.
Unfortunately I'm off very shortly and will have no internet access for
about a week, but perhaps we can work on a template and rapid
response/press release for these kind of situations in future. Ideally
- explain how Wikipedia works
- mention Wikimedia ZA
- mention that Wikipedia exists in languages besides English

Subject: [African Wikimedians] We need your opinion: Invitation to take
survey about Administrator Noticeboard/Incidents
Hello Wikimedians :-)
The Wikimedia Foundation Support and Safety team, along with the
Anti-Harassment Tools Team, is conducting a survey on the use of the
English Wikipedia Administrator Noticeboard/Incidents to handle conflicts
It’s the first survey of it’s kind and is important information for
deciding on improvements. We are trying to get as many diverse opinions and
voices as possible. In addition to the people that use it often, we need to
hear from people who post on it rarely but read the board frequently.
I want to make sure that you folks in Africa who edit English Wikipedia
know about the survey. And I encourage you to participate if you have some
experience with noticeboard..
Here is the link to sign up and more information it.
