Overview of this quarter[edit]

The purpose of this section is to provide a brief overview of this report. Please use no more than 1-2 paragraphs to address the questions outlined below. You will have an opportunity to address these questions in detail elsewhere in this report.

CHANGES: Please describe how you changed your plans and budget based on the FDC allocation approved by the Board in December 2012, and your rationale for these changes. You can then use the changed plans and budget as the basis on which to report back on the first quarter.

  • We are keeping our plan in level of programs but we are still spending less compared the annual plan due to the fact that our programs are generally sponsored by the actual partners.

HIGHLIGHTS: What were 1–2 important highlights of the past quarter? (These may include successes, challenges, lessons learned.)

  • We have focused mainly on Hungarian Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons, the two largest project by number of active volunteers from Hungary.

WIKI-FOCUS: What Wikimedia projects was your entity focused on (e.g., Wiki Commons, French Wiktionary) this quarter?

  • Commons, QR projects

GROWTH: How did your entity grow over the past quarter vs. the previous quarter (e.g., Number of active editors reached/involved/added, number of articles created, number of events held, number of partipants reached through workshops)?

Financial summary[edit]

The FDC requires information about how your entity received and spent money over the past year. The FDC distributes general funds, so your entity is not required to use funds exactly as outlined in the proposal. While line-item expenses will not be examined, the FDC and movement wants to understand why the entity spent money in the way it did. If variance in budgeted vs. actual is greater than 20%, please provide explanation in more detail. This helps the FDC understand the rationale behind any significant changes. Note that any changes from the Grant proposal, among other things, must be consistent with the WMF mission, must be for charitable purposes as defined in the grant agreement, must be reported to WMF, and must otherwise comply with the grant agreement. The WMF mission is "to empower and engage people around the world to collect and develop educational content under a free license or in the public domain, and to disseminate it effectively and globally."

Lessons learned[edit]

Lessons from this quarter[edit]

A key objective of the funding is to enable the movement as a whole to understand how to achieve shared goals better and faster. An important way of doing this is to identify lessons learned from entities who receive funds, and to share these lessons across the movement. The purpose of this section is to elicit some of these insights, which will be shared throughout the movement. Please answer the following questions in 1–2 paragraphs each.

What were your major accomplishments in the past quarter, and how did you help to achieve movement goals?

  • Wiki Loves Monuments was a major success and gave over 3500 images from over 140 participants + the volunteer work.
  • Increase participation
  • Improve quality
  • Increase reach with the collaboration

What were your major setbacks in the past quarter (e.g., programs that were not successful)?

  • Low participation of the chapter members due to maybe personal problems, maybe the attitude to volunteering in Hungary.

Our programs are succesfull. Only problem is that we have a lot of editors who lives outside of Budapest and it is difficult to meet them personally. The virtual communication often miscarry.

  • Need to re-assess how to attract people to meetings.

What factors (organizational, environmental) enabled your success?

  • Having an office very slowly start to get the member's personal meetings.

What unanticipated challenges did you encounter and how did this affect what you were able to accomplish?

  • Most of the projects require (at least) one core person to pull it forward; if the number of core persons go below one the projects stall regardless of community interest. Mediocre chapter management of these cases.

What changes might you make in executing your initiatives into the next quarter?

  • activate our membership
  • improve Communication
  • create interesting programs
  • better use of office space
  • greater involvement of the editors
  • involve more the wikipedians in the work of wikimedians
  • use the program evaluation method to see better our activity
  • continuous searching for content partners, including GLAM and governmental bodies
