Steward elections continue

Voting in the steward elections continued this week. Voting, along with the chance to confirm the current stewards, will last until 15 December. As of press time, there remained 15 candidates in the election, unchanged from last week, with every candidate confirmed by the Foundation already.

Milestones, creations

Wikipedia became the 12th most visited site this week, according to Alexa. During the week, the French Wikiversity and the Tamil Wikinews were also created, and the French Wikiquote was reopened, with Board of Trustees approval. The French Wikiquote was temporarily closed in April of this year (see archived story) following potential legal issues.

List service begins

List Summary Service, or LSS, began in late September; its goal is to summarize threads on Wikimedia mailing lists in multiple languages. It initially only summarized the Foundation-l mailing list, but has now expanded to four languages and includes the Wikipedia-l list and the Wikien-l list, used for the English Wikipedia.
