Before contacting Framasoft using the form in this contact page, please check that the answer is not included in the list below.
We remind you that no answers will be given to questions concerning the functioning of free software. For this, please use our forums.
Thank you! Framasoft volunteers work about thirty times a year throughout France. It is therefore possible that we may be able to participate in your event.
However, please understand that the association’s energies are not infinite, and that our priority is above all to develop online awareness actions. Consequently, we cannot respond to all requests, especially if geographical issues are taken into account, or if - quite simply - none of our members are available on the desired date.
To make us a proposal for an intervention, simply write to us via the form on the home page of this site, choose Invitation à un événement, and give precise indications in your message: Who (are you)?, When (is the intervention planned)?, Where (is the demonstration taking place)?, What (conference? round table? stand? other?), etc.
We will answer you promptly to let you know if a member of the association is available.
With pleasure! All you have to do is write to us via the form on the home page of this site, choose Invitation à un événement and let us know your request. We will send you by return email the contact details of a member who can then answer your questions.
This type of initiative may be honourable, but for our association it involves an accounting expense (many entries, audits, etc.) which in fact leads into additional costs of paid time and/or accounting expertise. Unfortunately, most of the time, the donations received through these channels would not be able to cover the additional expenses incurred to record them in the accounts. That is why we prefer to stick to the donation system we propose (which also has the advantage of being able to offer a tax deduction to French taxpayers).
To participate, register on the Framacolibris forum, think about presenting yourself, your skills, your desires… and what you want to bring in the common pot. A Frama-team will be present to welcome you, answer you and guide you in our projects and needs.

If you don’t remember you username, please contact us from the same email address as your Framaboard account.
That is not possible. We want to prevent spammers from taking advantage of Framalistes to subscribe thousands of addresses and spam them in a few clicks. We have therefore voluntarily deactivated the registration of batches of emails by the owner and limited the number of members per list to 500 email addresses.
To register a large number of members, there is no other solution than to send them a link to the subscription page of the list or to add them manually one by one with patience.
That’s not possible! We have configured Sympa (the software behind Framalistes) so that any email sent from this service displays a link to unsubscribe from the list it comes from.
Beyond the legal obligation, it is an important ethical and technical choice: it seems essential to us that everyone can be free to unsubscribe easily from any email list, and this prevents people on your list from classifying it as SPAM (an action that, in the long run, could classify all messages from all framalists as spam among the largest email providers).
On the other hand, it is possible to add one above the existing one, and/or to add a header to the emails in your list. An issue is opened in the sympa repository about it.
Since the creation of a pad is anonymous, it is impossible to propose deleting the data, otherwise anyone could delete any pad. However, the pads are deleted after a certain period of inactivity (no modification), in order to avoid making our database grow indefinitely.
This period is 24 hours for a pad created on the https://quotidien.framapad.org/ instance, one month on the https://mensuel.framapad.org/ instance etc… Meanwhile you can select all the content and delete it. Be careful, however, this will not delete the content of the history (the data will still be available).
We are currently translating our home pages, but it takes time, so not all of them are translated yet.
However, the softwares we offer are mostly in English (and not developed by us). Exceptions are: Framaforms, Framasite…
If you want to help us translate, please join our translation platform.
To summarize: it is ongoing. While most Internet companies and start-ups generally manage only a few services and databases, and have significant resources, we are a small non-profit organization that offers more than 30 services and even more websites. Complying with the GDPR directives will take us some time.
Important points concerning the collection and processing of data at Framasoft:
Our compliance with the DGMP is therefore still imperfect, but our association promoting privacy, we are committed to respecting it.
No. We do not (and will not) offer unified accounts because the services we offer use software developed by different and independent teams (of which we are, in most cases, not part). Each software evolves on its own and maintaining a service that would unite them (in addition to our custom versions) would be particularly time-consuming.
In addition, it would create an SPOF (Individual Point of Failure): if unified authentication is compromised, everything is compromised (or everything fails if it fails).
