Activity reportsEdit

@AGK: can we get activity reports for quarters 2, 3 and 4 of 2020? ProcrastinatingReader (talk) 21:39, 13 February 2021 (UTC)

The outstanding reports has been added to the internal list of open tasks, so the members are aware that activity summaries are oustanding. Summaries take quite a while to prepare, so we are waiting for a volunteer to become available. There is a backlog of open cases caused by member inactivity in the last term, and tackling that is taking up most of our time, alongside inducting the new members.

No identification to WMF anymoreEdit

When was this practice (Special:Diff/21133911) stopped? -kyykaarme (talk) 08:56, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

Not sure, but just a guess, earlier all users that had access to non-public information had to follow wmf:Access to nonpublic data policy and proof their identity, but the new policy was accepted in 2014 and it was only required to read and agree the agreement on Phabricator. So ombuds members nor Stewards/CU/OS doesn't need to disclose their real identity anymore. Of course I can be wrong of the current practice of ombuds identification procedure.

I don't know when it stopped, but I have never identified to the WMF. — JJMC89(T·C) 17:12, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
  • The practice was not stopped for Commission members alone, but all volunteers who wanted access to advanced permissions. This includes checkusers, oversighters, ombuds commissioners, and stewards. Prior to late 2015, volunteers who needed access were required to exhibit a copy of personal identification to the WMF; see Identification noticeboard/old. This process was changed, the personal ID requirement was removed, and volunteers were instead required to agree to a new 'Confidentiality Agreement'; see Access to nonpublic information policy/Noticeboard, the current process. The exact date of the change was 15 September 2015. AGK ■ 10:34, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the answers. I knew about the policy change for CU/OS/S but was wondering if the ombudsppl had different rules. Turns out this page just wasn't updated for five years. Never trust a wiki, I guess. =/ kyykaarme (talk) 14:30, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Requests for comment/Ombuds Commission inactivityEdit

I have started a RFC about the persistent inactivity of several members of the OC. --Rschen7754 01:59, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

I've send this to the rest of the OC for discussion. Worth noting that the WMF has been working to resolve this over the last couple of cycles at least, and this year the OC has (so far) been more active. Hopefully that momentum will continue. – Ajraddatz (talk) 02:04, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
