Hello all,

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 [[m:Image filter referendum]] shortly.

Most of the details are not ready yet, but we could really use your
help to translate the initial announcement (basically the text above)
to any languages that you speak. This will be a global referendum, so
wide participation and translations are necessary. You can translate
the initial announcement on Meta-Wiki:

As always, thank you all for your help!

Casey Brown
