Crazy conversation going on here
I think Hillgentleman is off his rocker, but I'll leave it to the experts of WR to have the final say.
I have undone your edits to Public speakers. Perhaps you are not aware of this, but foundations do have boards. A trustee is something else. Not all foundations are or have trusts, and not all board members will be trustees. Best regards, Guido den Broeder 10:12, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
----- in wikimedia foundation the board is made of trustees. however i have caught a trustee (i think it was either mike godwin or some other chair) calling themselves "the board of directors" and my comment "not wikimedia, inc" comes from that instance. i shall undo your edit. best, Hillgentleman 10:44, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
---------- A board consists of board members. Some are trustees, some are not, especially on the local chapters - in some countries, the very notion of 'trustee' doesn't even exist. Please note that these descriptions are supplied by the speakers themselves, who are well aware of their position. If you think them wrong anyway, suggest that on the talk page, or better contact them personally, rather than make changes yourself. I'd appreciate it if you would undo your own re-revert so that the both of us won't be blocked from editing. Guido den Broeder 11:12, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
---------------- It actually is "Wikimedia, Inc." The Wikimedia Foundation is an incorporated organization called "Wikimedia Foundation, Inc.", see the bylaws. Also, Mike Godwin has never been a board member, he's the Foundation's staff lawyer. Cbrown1023 talk 14:41, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
