Hi all, WMUK _might_ be able to provide limited travel funds for someone to attend this seminar. Is anyone interested?
In general, I've been wondering whether it would be worthwhile for WMUK to generally offer limited amounts of travel funds for Wikimedia- related activities, such as attending appropriate seminars/ conferences or to carry out research somewhere et cetera. A typical maximum could be something like £20, but with special cases allowed. The catches would be that the recipient would have to first give good reasons in order to get the funding, and then give a report back afterwards. Depending on the event, the report could be to the board, on wiki, on the mailing list, in the newsletter, in the form of a blog post or some combination of the above. Depending on the activity, we could then provide the money out of either the WMF grant or out of general funds. Typically recipients would probably have to be WMUK members, but exceptions might be allowed in exceptional cases. It's then an additional incentive to become a member. What do you all think to this? Note that no board decision has been made on this yet - it will probably be discussed at the next board meeting.
