Added mentions of to articles about "France", "Canada", "19th century", "Victorian age", "Progressive Era" and "The History Of The United States".

The articles combined have an average of 350 000 visitors a month, so hopefully this will help raise awareness.

Any other Wikipedians or who would like to become one?

Could be a nice community activity for , perhaps something to consider with the Reading Group at some point?

Ah seed crowdfunding.

I worked with these guys on the accelerator, and they are the real deal.

Dear users ,

We are now about to switch our media object storage provider over.

So the site will be offline for a very short time. We hope you won't notice any missing images when we come back, but if you do, this is why. Note: we've made sure all the images are safe, it should only be cached remote media which may required restoring.

If you have problems please contact us on our chat channel

is a Reddit with:
- Polls
- Better categorization (on Reddit physics and science are separate subreddits, on WeCo physics is a childbranch of science).

We'll be a legal coop soon, allowing equal co-ownership to all.

We got a 680£ grant to to recruit users and want to fund individuals and groups that share our values and want to grow WeCo. We're open to all ideas.

If you're interested, toot me or join our discord:

Who is a member of on here, that would be interested in being more involved in the .

Let me know if you are an artist or a listen (or both).

Let me know what kind of involvement you would be interested in (policy, governance, testing, feedback, co-op development etc.) and whether you'd be interested in forums, working groups / committee or full-on volunteer roles.

Just an informal scoping exercise :)

My simple "echo-chamber silencer" idea for , a replacement for Reddit.

In a nutshell:

1. There's a poll on whether you support or oppose nuclear energy.

2. You vote in opposition to it.

3. The top comment shown to you is from a person who voted in support of nuclear energy, but was most upvoted by people who voted in opposition to it.

This could encourage comments that seek to appeal to those who disagree with the comment.
