*Please distribute widely*
*Call for referendum*:  The Wikimedia Foundation, at the direction of the
Board of Trustees, will be holding a vote to determine whether members of
the community support the creation and usage of an opt-in personal image
filter, which would allow readers to voluntarily screen particular types of
images strictly for their own account.

Further details and educational materials will be available shortly.  The
referendum is scheduled for 12-27 August, 2011, and will be conducted on
servers hosted by a neutral third party.  Referendum details, officials,
voting requirements, and supporting materials will be posted at
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image_filter_referendum shortly.

For the coordinating committee,
Philippe (WMF)
