Thank you *very much* for volunteering! :)

I can do the sending and querying if email addresses (thanks Ex!). I can also take care of translating the draft in Italian and Slovenian. Maybe we could put it in the wiki in a /meta section?

I checked out the Italian list manually at 35c3. mwfc or anyone else, what would be the best way to signal that a link is down?

Great, I’m already planning a mini trip through Italy, probably in spring :)
> d. working with me on the harder cases ie where this is no contact info and only deadlinks to update profiles to identify whether the space is truly still active somehow before amending them to inactive
I can assist, we should probably have a Category for these special cases, or a list on the wiki.
