New name - Annual Plan Grants[edit]

  • FDC portal will be renamed and moved to grants namespace, Grants:APG
  • Many previous pages will be archived and deprecated to the new pages.

Landing page[edit]

The landing page will be the first result from searches on Meta and the destination of links from Grants:Start, mails and banners. It will contain:

  • Announcements
    • Including a note to watch this page for future announcements (and whether they'd like to join a list to receive announcements and updates related to the FDC's work)
  • Button 1 to the start info for entities/people starting proposals (audience 1)
  • Button 2 to general info for everyone else (audience 2)
  • Link to a single question/discussion page for all APG issues not related to specific proposals

Audience 1 - Entities[edit]

Who is this audience? Entities are groups applying to the FDC for funding.

What do they need to know?

  • Schedule
  • How to apply
    • A general outline of the process
    • A button to begin a proposal

Audience 2 - General/Community members[edit]

Who is this audience? People coming from other wikis who have followed mail/banners/posts with links to get involved with grant processes.

What do they need to know?

  • What is the Wikimedia movement
  • What are Annual Plan Grants and who makes up the Funds Dissemination Committee
  • How to be involved
  • How to easily access the proposals and reports

Audience 3 - Funds Dissemination Committee[edit]

Who is this audience? FDC members, existing and aspiring.

What do they need to know? (This area will not be linked from the main pages except for FDC introductions)

  • Overall APG calendar
  • FDC member info
  • FDC operations info
  • FDC deliberations (and other) schedules
  • Easy view of all forms, proposals and reports

Open questions[edit]

  • How should we handle the calendar, as the "current" schedule has gotten unwieldy.
    • One major calendar with all dates, so that at a glance one can find where the process stands.
    • Separate schedules dedicated to each round and found only on relevant pages/proposals.
