Central Notice admin comments[edit]

Well, it is January 16th, so closing it. Tito Dutta, if you still need to run it, please change the dates, and either add links to Google's privacy policy and terms of use as a separate line, or better still change the landing page to some onwiki page where you will provide the link to the form. Please change the status of this request to Open (the category at the bottom) and transclude it back at /Request if you do that. --Base (talk) 14:17, 16 January 2018 (UTC)[reply]

  • User:Base, the laptops and internets are being distributed, can you create a centralnotice now for the mentioned project till 11 Feb? Text is: Are you looking for infrastructure support to improve your contribution for Indic Wikimedia Projects. Learn more. --11:43, 31 January 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Endorsing this request on behalf of the Partnerships & Global Reach team at the Wikimedia Foundation. This is a project the foundation is implementing in collaboration with CIS-A2K. We need the banner to ensure maximum participation in the support program. The banner text and link can be: "Apply for laptop and internet support to contribute to Wikimedia projects from India." --RAyyakkannu (WMF) (talk) 12:36, 31 January 2018 (UTC)[reply]
