  1. Sibi
Request from Sibi: Since the travelling time from down south would be high , I request to be considered for air fare reimbursement .
Answer: As per the grant application to WMF, organizer can reimburse only Rs 3000/- maximum.
  • Community approval here
Comment: Ideally the travel time from Chennai is 28 hours (1 full day travel + 1 night Travel) , then the return is another 28 hours . For 2 days of wiki celebrations , 4 days of travel would be kind of harsh on my schedule . Moreover from Tamil Wiki village pump there has been a proposal to ask for Air fare if its possible as I am the only Language representative from Tamil Community . Having said this , I dont want to force upon the organisers on the scholarship for Airfare .If its possible please arrange for it . --Commons sibi (talk) 08:04, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
