FDC proposal/Program should not be a container template[edit]

Hi,

One of the most infuriating thing I find with the APG forms is how {{FDC proposal/Program}} is a container template − the all content is supposed to go in the |overview= parameter. This disallows − probably among other things − one of the most useful features there is when it comes to editing long documents, section editing.

On User:Jean-Frédéric/Sandbox, I have shown how using two templates − one header and one footer − allows the same formatting without losing section editing. I would strongly suggest altering the form preload Grants:APG/Proposal form preload/7. I will probably be bold and do it myself unless there is opposition.

Hi Jean-Fred, I'm really sorry that the APG forms are frustrating. You are welcome to go ahead and adjust the preload as you suggest; I don't think it will break anything. :) thanks for being bold and pitching in here. Warmly KLove (WMF) (talk) 16:27, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the swift answer KLove (WMF)! I went ahead and changed the preload. Cheers, Jean-Fred (talk) 20:22, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Sounds good, my friend! KLove (WMF)

FDC proposal form vX preload[edit]

Hi,

If one tries to create a proposal form from the entity hub, eg Grants:APG/Proposals/2015-2016 round2/Wikimedia Norge, it loads the following, which uses Grants:APG/Proposal form preload/5 (to which Grants:APG/Proposal form preload currently redirects). However, I believe we are now at v7 Grants:APG/Proposal form preload/7.

Could this please be clarified as soon as possible? One would not want to use outdated forms for their proposals...

Hello, dear Jean-Fred. Great catch. Turns out those hub pages are using an outdated hub page template, and thus linking to an older version of the preload. While all four organizations have created their proposal forms already, I notice most of them have not yet added most of the content. Therefore, what I will do is Email the group of applicants today to ask them if they are OK with me manually switching over the information they've put in the old forms to the new forms. If they are, this should solve the problem and given that we have only four applicants in this round I think it is do-able. I just don't want to do it before consulting them, as it might be rather shocking. Will post update here once I confirm. Thank you so much for catching that. While I don't think it would be the end of the world to use the old form, the new form is actually easier, and it will be more comparable to what Round 1 organizations used.

Comentario del estudiante, Balademar Tomàs Baten Baten.

Estudiante tiene pocas opciones de elegir un trabajo debido a sus especiales horarios. Sin embargo hoy en día es una necesidad trabajar y estudiar a la vez. A pesar que el mercado laboral sea algo duro para distintos, estos son algunos de los puestos de trabajo en línea más comunes y las oportunidades para los estudiantes puedan financiar su preparación profesional.

News outdated[edit]

The "Important News about Annual Plan Grants" section should be updated entirely. Looks like all the four items are outdated. Eduardogobi (talk) 20:13, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

Merge to Grants_talk:Start[edit]

There are many grant discussion pages. None of them get much conversation alone. The collective effect is that the current system splits similar conversations which ought to be together. Sometime soon, I will merge all talk pages for grants into Grants_talk:Start. Even with many pages merged together I do not anticipate that this one page will get much traffic in the near future.

Sometime soon I will merge this page! If you have comments, please post at Grants_talk:Start#Proposal_to_merge_talk_pages_for_grants. Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 11:40, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Category:Reports for annual plan grants vs. Category:Annual plan grant reports[edit]

These two categories should probably be combined. Some template may be fixed to add whichever category is canonical. --Nemo 10:13, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
