Loved the first video, very funny! Fantastic that you managed to get it on TV; I definitely agree a followup is needed to mention the adjective libre and the verb contribute. We can probably only assess the benefits in few months from now, but there is potential. --Nemo 19:20, 5 November 2014 (UTC) P.s.: Ouch the old logo in the comics.Reply

Feedback, ready to accept once financial section is complete[edit]

Hi Iopensa and team,

Thank you for this detailed final report. I'm posting some feedback here, as we get ready to accept this report:

  • Thanks for sharing so many different artifacts from various points in your process! It is great for us all to see not just what you made, but how you made it.
  • Great to see this spark discussion w/in the community about communicating Wikipedia in new ways! In terms of your target audience, where I understand it may have been more difficult to elicit responses: I'm interested in learning more about anything useful you learned from the focus group - did they have any important feedback that you found useful and might want to highlight for us?

  • Your learning patterns are a great way to share what you found. Thank you for taking the time to create them. I suggest adding your final report as a reference on each of your learning patterns, if you see fit :). And I really appreciate you sharing from your own experiences w/ mistakes in credits, turning that into a pattern for others. Freeing folks up to make new mistakes in the future instead of recreating the same issues is so important.

  • I concur w/ aprabhala that this is great work, and I too wonder about the ultimate impact (moving from awareness/viewing to action/reading). Though your hypothesis seems reasonable, it is still somewhat unclear if the bit of growth in terms of mobile page views in Cameroon is directly related to this project, given the overall trend of increasing mobile views. Still, lovely to see a model for what appears to be a productive collaborative experiment with a mobile partner.
  • Does the team have any active plans to pickup the idea of a Cameroonian site notice, social media campaigns, or any further partnerships w/ Zero, or would you hope others in the movement might pick this up instead? cc AVrana (WMF) in case she'd like to share anything new from Zero's plans in Cameroon as well.
Sincerely we hope the communication team of Wikimedia Foundation will help us, and they are currently already doing so. Thanks Victor and Yoona! --iopensa (talk) 17:37, 12 January 2015 (UTC)Reply
  • In terms of your budget adjustments, I'm glad to approve the final spend - looks like funds were put to good use. As there appears to be just a small remainder, we wonder if the team can find any good use for the remaining €31.66 - perhaps to host a local meetup, video-viewing, or another way to support the local Wikimedia community. Do you have a potential use in mind for this? If not, we'll of course accept a return of funds (and any accompanying losses due to bank transfer fees).
We are happy to learn that you have found good use for the small amount of underspend and best wishes in using the funds to present the videos at a local event. -- Jtud (WMF) (talk) 00:27, 8 January 2015 (UTC)Reply
  • Before we can accept this report and mark your project complete, you'll still need to complete the final section of your report, answering each of the financial questions to confirm how funds were spent. Then, when Jtud (WMF) confirms she's got all necessary receipts or other financial documentation, we can close this grant out.
Hello Iopensa and team, Thank you for sending in receipts on 7 May 2014, accounting for 7500 EUR of your project's expenses. Kindly email additional documentation of expenses to me at grantsadmin(_AT_) Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the submission of your receipts. -- Best, Jtud (WMF) (talk) 19:50, 16 December 2014 (UTC)Reply
Thank you, Iopensa and team, for submitting the documentation of expenses for your grant. -- Jtud (WMF) (talk) 00:27, 8 January 2015 (UTC)Reply

Congratulations to the team for what appears to have been a fruitful and learning-filled project. I find the comics to be particularly delightful :) Best wishes, Siko (WMF) (talk) 19:16, 16 December 2014 (UTC)Reply
