Email to IMC Docs WG
On the evening of 6th June it was noticed that a number of Sheffield wiki pages had been edited or deleted. Chrisc suggested we send draft an email to the IMC wiki Working Group.
Sheffield's Wiki pages under attack
A number of wiki pages of Sheffield IMC have been both edited and deleted by someone using the nickname NorThern. This person is not part of the Sheffield collective.
We assume that this is probably the work of someone either from Northern IMC or someone pretending to be in order to cause trouble. In either case this is not acceptable and is an attack on the autonomy of Sheffield IMC and possibly an attempt denigrate Northern IMC. This account set up just a few days ago on 4th June. In other words it's sole purpose was set up to deliberately to attack Sheffield's and one of Mayday's pages. It was also used to edit the minutes of the Bradford meeting in December . Since many Sheffield IMCistas have been locked out of the wiki we can't now revert the pages easily.
We would therefore ask you to:
a) Lock out the account the of the person known as NorThern. b) Revert the edits made to the documents below.
We will contact Northern IMC to inform them of what has been happening.
The pages affecting Sheffield are:
- https://docs.indymedia.org/Local/ImcSheffield20110215 - which was a record of a Sheffield IMC meeting.
