Actually there is surprisingly little about the ED's resignation in the link AK provided. Nothing in-depth (in English, I don't read German), nothing in the last 11 days.

AK's tabloid style op-ed on the matter a couple of weeks ago was pretty low IMHO, but making up extensive news coverage is beyond the pale. Smallbones(smalltalk) 20:41, 13 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]

I'm a little puzzled here, Smallbones, as I do not recall writing an op-ed on the ED's resignation. For reference, last week we had Gamaliel's Tretikov resigns, WMF in transition, two weeks ago we had Oliver Keyes' Backward the Foundation and Gamaliel's WMF in limbo as decision on Tretikov nears, and three weeks ago William Beutler's Search and Destroy: the Knowledge Engine and the undoing of Lila Tretikov.
Lila Tretikov's resignation was covered by the BBC, The Guardian, New York Magazine, Motherboard, The Next Web, The Verge, The Register, Ars Technica, Business Insider, Le Monde, Le Nouvel Observateur, Die Zeit, Der Spiegel, Der Standard, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Heise and De Volkskrant, to name just some of the more prominent European-language publications. Most of this coverage occurred Feb. 25–29, as indicated above. Regards, --Andreas JN466 22:42, 13 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Andreas you don't remember writing this piece of tabloid trash?
As far as the publications you cite, they are essentially all just quickie pieces, a day or 2 after the resignation, without any analysis, with just the news that Lila resigned. As I said, nothing since. Smallbones(smalltalk) 23:18, 13 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Well, that op-ed was five weeks ago, and was about the Knowledge Engine, rather than about the ED's resignation. The latter was an international news story covered by major, national dailies in at least half a dozen countries. If you think that isn't "widespread coverage", you're welcome to your opinion. As for "nothing since", I don't see why anyone would expect the news media to be covering an event two or three weeks after it occurred. Andreas JN466 01:24, 14 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]

It is great that User:Keilana has found a way to combat harassment that works for her and applaud her bravery and contributions. I worry that such stories are not good for addressing systematic bias in general though. Most people do not want to suffer harassment and to an extent this story just reinforces a lazy narrative that harassment of minority editors is to be expected and something they have to deal with. We should be working harder for solutions to harassment that ensure a welcoming atmosphere and comprehensive dispute resolution across the project if we are to address problems with systematic exclusion and bias in an effective manner.

  • The iOS app has its good points. Especially the editor is far smoother on my iPad than the others. However, despite saying I'm logged in, it leaves an edit record giving my IP instead of my username. As for exploring, one nice addition would be a click so see what articles are near the geolocated article I'm reading, not just what's near where I'm sitting.
