Ombuds commission/2015/Report Jul-Dec

Report for July 1 - December 31, 2015

In this report, we summarize the activities of the present term of the Commission, from July 1st until December 31st 2015.

During the above period, a total of 4 cases were brought before the commission. Not all of these cases were closed before end of December.

The breakdown of closes is as following:

  • One case closed from the former report period.
  • Closed in less than 60 days: 1
  • Closed in less than 90 days: 2
  • One case is currently open.

In two cases, a violation of privacy policy was suspected and WMF was informed.

As a general statement, we would like to add that we found that the Commission still receives cases which are not well formulated. We recommend the community to formulate their inquiries based on the recommendations provided on Ombudsman commission#Submission. Inquiries with not enough information usually take longer to work on them.
