Hi jerkyturkey. Thank you for starting draft proposal. Article deletion policy differs in each project, so first thing you need to do is to specify which project you want to on. In addition, please explain how you are going to spend the money if funded. Regards,--Tomo suzuki (talk) 13:59, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
