I had sent following mail to the WMIN members list about 10 days back.
As there was no reply for 5 days, I sent the same again adding
individual ids of EC members.
There is not a single line of reply to the mail. Not even any
acknowledgment of receiving the mail.
I am wondering if my email id is blacklisted by EC members or there is
no one in the current EC who is nominated/interested in responding OR
WMIN is completely shutdown.
If any list members have any idea about the current status of WMIN,
please let others know.
Thanks Sudhanwa for bringing up this topic on the list. As a co-founder of
the chapter, I also share your concerns.
I had a brief phone conversation with Moksh Juneja, President, WMIN couple
of days ago. I shared my concerns and requested him to take necessary steps
to complete the regulatory requirements like audit, FCRA report submission,
membership renewals, elections at the earliest. I also alerted him about
the deadline for letter of intent for FDC participation for the next year
revised to Jun 8, 2014), if the WMIN is to continue with FDC process. I
offered my help to the extent possible. Moksh responded positively.
As all the Executive Committee members have signed the code of conduct of
the chapter <http://wiki.wikimedia.in/File:Wmin_ec_codeofconduct.pdf> which
specifically mandates them to conduct the chapter affairs consistent with
its purpose and to advance Chapter's interests and also makes them
accountable to general body and community, I hope that EC takes prompt
action in this regard.
