Taarifa ya mwaka 2012[1]

Utangulizi

Mwaka 2012 umekuwa mwaka wa kipindo cha mpito wa Kamati katika maeneo mengi Kutokana na matatizo ya unaoendelea na shughuli za kujiunga na kuundwa upya ndani ulifanyika pamoja na kuanzishwa kwa mipaka ya muda na viwango vya chini ya biasharaCite error: Invalid <ref> tag; invalid names, e.g. too many, na wakati huo huo, Kamati imechangia hitimisho la mchakato wa majukumu ya harakati na kutengeneza njia kwa ajili ya utambuzi wa wanachama wapya wa harakati.Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag na muda wa taratibu hizi na kuhusiana na michakato ya ndani WMF, ambayo ilitoka uungwana vizuri, lakini si bila ya baadhi ya kutoelewana awali.

Ikumbukwe kwamba uhalisia wa matumizi ya bajeti bado ni tegemezi sana juu ya mambo ya nje kama vile mialiko kuhudhuria matukio au vikundi vya kutoa msaada wa kifedha kwa njia ya ruzuku. Katika siku zijazo kama kamati ina rasilimali watu muhimu, ni lazima kupitisha mtazamo chini ya kihafidhina, makini zaidi kuelekea matumizi na kuangalia uwezekano wa kufikia jamii mpya na kutoa zaidi ya moja kwa moja msaada kwa washirika kuwa chakula cha mchana kwa ajili ya kampuni hii.

Mwisho, ni kutaja thamani kwamba kamati inatoa shukrani kwa msaada na iliyopokea kwa mwaka 2012 kwa ajili ya kufadhili shughuli za WMF, Wikimedia Ujerumani, Hungary na Wikimedia Wikimedia Argentina.

Kuimarisha mawasiliano na watumishi

Katika Mwaka 2012, mawasiliano ya meongezeka katika mzunguko na kuboreshwa kwa wafanyakazi wa WMF (hasa Wakili Mkuu, na Asaf na Winifred katika idara ya Global Development) kwa sababu ya majukumu ya Kamati ya kuongeza (muundo mpya wa wanachama washiriki, mfano kama kusimamia bajeti).

Pamoja na kuanzishwa kwa muundo mpya na matumizi ya ruhusa ya wazi ya bidhaa, Kamati imeweka mkazo kwa kuzingatia msingi na kwa kiasi kikubwa katika timu ya kisheria. Bahati mbaya, hata hali hii kuchanganyikiwa na kusababisha idadi ya ucheleweshaji katika kupelekwa katika ujumla wa muundo wa mwezi na kupata ufumbuzi kuwa ni ya kasi zaidi na rasilimali kidogo juu ya timu ya kisheria ni katika maslahi yetu.

Mwaka 2012, Asaf Bartov kama mtu ambaye atumika na kama kiungo na mchunguzi wa Kamati na imechangia ushauri kazi yetu, uchunguzi na utajiri wa habari. Yeye alikuwa alijiunga na idara ya Winifred katika kusimamia masuala WMF ya bajeti yetu ya utendaji.

Wafanyakazi wengine wanachama ambao ulisaidia Kamati, hasa na mipango ya usafiri walikuwa Laura James, usafiri na mratibu Josslyn Lewis, msaidizi wa dharura na Baraza.

Aidha, Kamati imeanzisha nzuri ya kazi na uhusiano na Nicole Ebber Wikimedia Deutschland kusaidia kusambaza taarifa kuhusu kazi ya tume ya jamii ya Ujerumani kuhusika Wikimedia na kuandaa masharti ya mkutano wa Berlin wa Kamati ya .

Challenges

Membership inactivity

Membership inactivity has been a colossal constraining factor on the effective functioning and legitimacy of the committee that has become unsustainable by the end of 2011 and required the introduction of new measures throughout 2012 to manage, without completely resolving, the situation. At the beginning of the year there were about 7 fairly inactive and 3 reliably active members without set end times for their terms.

Kuelezea hali: kazi kwa ufanisi wa kamati ya wanachama kumi wanahitaji angalau sita wanachama hai wanatakiwa kuwa katika makubaliano ya kupitisha maazimio ya Kamati, kuto wa zaidi ya wanachama wanne wa kamati basi hufanya mashirika yasiyo ya kazi, wakati kuto ya wanachama hasa wanne kulazimishwa kamati usiojulikana uamuzi. Hali ni kuchochewa na ukweli kwamba kuongeza au kuondoa wanachama inahitaji idadi kubwa ya 2/3 (7 ya watu), hivyo ufumbuzi yoyote inahitajika ridhaa na ushiriki wa wanachama ambao wamekuwa inactiv. Mbali ya maswali ya uhalali, idadi ndogo ya wanachama hai imesababisha kuongezeka katika muda kukabiliana na maombi zinazoingia na mzigo wa kazi kwa kiasi kikubwa kuongezeka kwa mali hizo.

Kwanza hatua muhimu katika kutatua tatizo la jumla kuto mara ya marekebisho ya sheria ya Januari Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag, ambao inasema kwamba wanachama ambao amekosa tatu kura mfululizo au ambaye hakushiriki katika orodha ya barua pepe kwa miezi minne ingekuwa karibu moja kwa moja kupoteza uanachama wao (pamoja na ushiriki wa mwenyekiti wa kamati ya kwamba ina kidogo au hakuna busara katika swali). Kupitishwa kwa kiwango katika Septemba hakuwa na kusababisha kuongezeka kwa shughuli na kupewa muda wa miezi minne inavyotakiwa na kutokuwa na shughuli (au maazimio matatu), mwanachama hakuna amepoteza kutawazwa wao mchakato mwaka 2012 kama 2 alikuja karibu sana na hilo.

Mwaka uliomalizika kwa mwito mpya kwa ajili ya maombi Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag announcing that the Committee was ready to process applications of user groups and thematic organizations.

Subsequently, a guideline was shared[2] by Geoff Brigham the general counsel outlining principles that would need to underline the use of Wikimedia trademarks in the name of the new entities: avoidance of confusion, avoidance of exclusivity, accuracy, and avoidance of brand dilution. Following internal discussions between the Committee and Geoff, and public discussion on the Meta page a second set of four considerations[3] were published outlining that 1) new affiliates should not use the Wikimedia trademark in their name if their focus is a single project, 2) cross-project affiliates should choose a name that very closely describes their scope, 3) the use of a tagline that links the entity to the movement could be preferable to a name that incorporates one of the WMF trademarks, and 4) that movement organizations need to seek permission before incorporating or doing business under a name employing a WMF trademark.

Any new affiliate has to find a name in agreement with the Affiliations Committee and the WMF Legal Department that conforms to the proposed guidelines and considerations significantly delaying the process of recognizing new affiliates (in 2012, this has affected the applications of the Munich user group[4] and a proposed Wikimedia Medicine[5] thematic organization). Going forward, it is expected that until finalised, easier to apply guidelines are adopted that can be used independently by the volunteers behind proposed affiliates and the Affiliations Committee, the act of naming proposed affiliates will be a difficult and lengthy process.
