Call for image filter referendum

Casey Brown-5
/Please distribute this message 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

For the coordinating committee,
Philippe (WMF)
Robert Harris
