A $200,000 funding drive started on 19 August. The drive aims to pay for the significant server costs, which have risen dramatically recently. Nearly four days into the fundraiser, USD $44,413.07 has been raised.
Two pages received minor procedural overhauls in the past week. Wikipedia:Requests for adminship has merged a self-nomination section of the page with the rest of the nominations, in order to make it easier for bureaucrats to check when an adminship can be carried out, and after many users pointed out that self-nomination is rarely a tool for bad-faith nominations anymore. In addition, Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion has been split into templates based on date, which are transcluded into the main deletion page. Both changes were driven by near-universal community consensus on their individual pages.
