This is an email to all members of Friends of WikiLeaks, designed to
keep you informed about relevant WikiLeaks news and updates on the
Friends of WikiLeaks community. These emails contain important
information designed to help you participate as an active member and
support WikiLeaks.

1. Updated website with Frequently Asked Questions.

The website for Friends of WikiLeaks, https://wlfriends.org , has now
been updated. We have put together a list of Frequently Asked
Questions based on the feedback that we have been receiving. You can
find this at https://wlfriends.org/faq , and we recommend that you
consult that page if you are having any questions about Friends of
WikiLeaks. If your question is not answered there, then you can email
us at [email protected] .

2. Password reset.

Please note that, for security reasons, it is impossible for us to
reset or re-issue your secure login key. At the moment the password
reset page accepts all requests for a reset, but if you have already
received a secure login key for your account then no reset email will
be sent to you.

3. Translations for wlfriends.org .

The Friends of WikiLeaks community is a global network. In order to
reach the greatest number of people, we need to have wlfriends.org
translated into as many languages as possible. If you would like to
volunteer to assist with this important task, then we invite you to
contact us at [email protected] and we will send you instructions
on how to register in our easy to use translation system.

4. Donating to WikiLeaks.

After being subjected to a relentless banking blockade for 18 months,
WikiLeaks has found a way to accept credit card donations again. You
can now donate by Visa or MasterCard, as well as many other methods,
by visiting http://shop.wikileaks.org/donate#dccard . If you wish to
donate by credit card, then please do so soon, as this method might
not be available for very long. Without your support, WikiLeaks cannot
continue to operate!

5. Other ways to support WikiLeaks.

There are many other ways to support WikiLeaks in addition to
donating. WikiLeaks has prepared a list of ways to do so, which can be
found at https://www.wikileaks.org/Supporters.html . It contains an
excellent list of ways to provide assistance, as well as the types of
skills that are particularly useful for supporting WikiLeaks.

6. Account problems in wlfriends.org .

The launch of the first friendship assignment round for Friends of
WikiLeaks occurred on July 2, 2012. This was an important milestone
for us, as it transformed wlfriends.org from an idea into a proof of
concept. We are happy to announce that the site is functioning well,
but still not without some small problems.

A small number of users have informed us that they cannot log in with
their secure login key. Unfortunately, some keys are not being issued
correctly, and do not give access to the user's account. This problem
is irreversible, and we cannot recover these accounts as we have no
way of decrypting them. We urge you to log in as soon as you receive
your secure login key. If you receive an error message that the key is
invalid, then you will need to re-register. We apologise for any
inconvenience this may cause, and hope to have it fixed soon.

We have recently received feedback from a small number users who are
unable to edit their account details. We are now aware of this
problem, and are working to fix it. If this problem affects you, the
we ask that you be patient while we sort it out. Alternatively, you
can register a new account which hopefully will not have the same
problem.
