Harry, if you're going to keep starting list emails with "I'm sick
or "...getting on my nerves..." you really need to make sure you have a
valid complaint, or it kinda backfires. When people use that sort of
construction, it also gives the impression that the email is primarily
about them, rather than the topic. Just a bit of advice,

Harry, I'm not sure I understand your objection.
What aspect of the
expenses policy is being contradicted?

I'm sure this isn't your fault, Hasina, but this is something that's
getting on my nerves, and those of other volunteers. We have an expenses
which specifies when the chapter will cover expenses and what expenses they
will cover. For people to start applying their own, contradictory policies
is only going to confuse matters and is likely to lead to the kind of
confusion that the office was (at least in part) established to prevent.
If the policy is inadequate, it should be modified, but until it is, it
should be applied to every case.

Wikimedia UK has been invited recently invited to an event in Coventry
on 19 October - CiyCamp Coventry (www.citycampcov.org.uk
). CityCamp aims
to encourage and enable local government, businesses, community
organisations and academia to share knowledge, web technologies and
experience to help shape the future of Coventry.
This event will be held on Friday 19 October 2012 at 13:00 till Sunday 21
October 2012 at 16:30 at the City Council Offices. We have managed to get a
slot to speak on the Friday afternoon at 3pm, for 20 minutes. If anyone
is free and would like to discuss Wikimedia UK's work at this event, please
let us know as it would be great to engage with as many people as possible
about sharing knowledge.
We could be able to cover your travel, but not the accommodation, so this
might be an ideal opportunity for a person based locally. Please let me
know if your are free to attend the whole weekend or just to go and speak.
I will be looking forward to hearing back from you.
