Dear readers

Yesterday, on September 15th 2011, the German Wikipedia closed the poll 
(Meinungsbild) "Einführung persönlicher Bildfilter". [1] It asked the 
question if the personal image filter can be introduced or if it should 
not be introduced.

A strong majority of 86% percent voted to not allow the personal image 
filter [2] , despite the fact that the board already decided to 
introduce the feature.

The questions are:
* Will the board or the WMF proceed with the introduction of the 
personal image filter against the will of it's second largest community?
* If the WMF/board does not care about the first question. Will it 
affect the way the personal image filter will be implemented? For 
example: Not for all projects. A different implementation as suggested 
inside the "image filter referendum".
* Will there be an attempt to follow this example and to question other 
communities the same question?

Greetings from
Tobias Oelgarte
