Hi all. I made some proofreading corrections with new items like the Security Issues. I also have one question I posed on one line written under "Opening session" before the Security Issue. Kindly please read and let me know if my understanding was correct. All those corrections and questions were posed under "Discussion." I would like to know your opinion on the matter.

Also, may I suggest that if we add text to the wiki, we may somehow post it under "discussion," too? It would be great to know that there are new additions. I do not exactly follow the RSS feeds as I am still a bit ignorant about how that works exactly. This way, from the discussions, it would allow the contributing author to "sign" his/her contribution. It is good to know "who" wrote that piece.

Seiiti and Rafik, I hope I am not offending anyone by making the grammar corrections and rephrasing? I would gladly offer that service with a big smile and nothing more. If I were to do the corrections, it is within the purposes of grammar and appropriateness/structure of formal article-writing. It's force of habit, I guess, but I do apologize if I was being straight-forward in my initiative. Thanks!

Don't forget to share your opinions okay? ~winks~

Hi folks, I've been working in the portuguese version.

Guys let me just point out the resource called ¨Discussion Forum¨just above the Comment Wall. While Comment Wall is used for generic comments that are more relevant in timeline, the Discussion can separate issues into specific threads that survive better along time and can engage action and debate. Hope you use it!

About copyright, well, in my personal view that is a small issue. Use of logos and trademarks if any shall be treated with more care.

Thanks, Rafik! I have been discussing this issue with Everton and hope to get an answer soon...it's a good question (not easy too)...

For copyright issues we need help for our experts like Seiiti, Carolina and Raquel

Question: do you have any idea about who owns the copyrights (if any) of IGFs websites (Secretariat and events')?

I noticed that Greek site (www.igfgreece2006.gr) has a copyright mark at the bottom of all pages. I realized that when I began to uploaded their logo at Wikipedia.

Isn't it controversial to have copyrighted material at a forum that discusses openness, freedom etc.?

I myself worked [hard] on the Brazilian version and we don't have any previous restrictions for usage here (I'll check it with our juridic dept.), though we don't have a Creative Commons licence at the website, :s.

(sorry for cross-posting)

Hi all,

I've just began to increase our participation and would like to ask for your support/feedback.

Firstly, I'll be creating important, but inexistent entries in Portuguese, such as WSIS, WGIG etc. You can all feel free to mail me and ask me to begin/translate a page. A good example can be found here, I've just created the entry for "Internet Governance": http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Governan%C3%A7a_da_Internet. Obviously, there's much more to do there, like comparing it to other languages versions, maybe even creating a "Governança da Internet no Brasil" [Internet Governance in Brazil] page, but I believe it is essential to give a first step.

I would also like to know what do Portuguese speakers think about the IGF entry. My [personal (sic)] aim is to make it a candidate for the Wikipedia Featured Articles in Portuguese, so I'm counting on your feedback. Certainly we've got a lot of work ahead, but "we can work it out".

Last, but not least: while writing this mail, I was informed that Jimmy Wales is coming to Brazil in november [in Portuguese], and one of his objectives is to strengthen contacts with the whole Wikimedia community. I'm not sure if I'll be able to attend this event, but, if I get this chance, it would be a valuable opportunity to get in touch with other contributors, like article reviewers, illustrators etc.

Hello Everybody,

Let'us enjoy using this social platform to manage our projects and share thoughts more easily and efficiently.
for example, for each team we can start a discussion where speakers of same language can discuss about their own issues.
we will also have discussions about wikipedia stuff and tips.
