Risks[edit]

  • Lack of time - Bengali Wikimedians consists of such Wikimedians who are active or very active editors but they are not comfortable to do voluntarily work. Currently community has no full-time or part-time employees. So organizing such a program by volunteers may cause some problems as not everyone can work full-time.
  • Low participation in the workshop and contest - There is also a risk that past contributors or workshops attendees will no longer participate in the workshops or the contest will have low number of participants.
