@EpochFail: Just a thought here, but could contributor behavior summarized through software like Snuggle be used as a factor in good faith detection? I JethroBT (talk) 23:45, 29 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hey I JethroBT! Yeah! Essentially, this idea is to take the rough scheme from Snuggle and make it a generalized service. I'm thinking that we can make this much better (more accurate) in the process. --EpochFail (talk) 16:10, 5 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]

April 12 Proposal Deadline: Is your project ready for funding?[edit]

The deadline for Individual Engagement Grant (IEG) submissions this round is April 12th, 2016. If you’ve developed your idea into a project that would benefit from funding, consider applying!

To apply, you must (1) create a draft request using the “Expand into an Individual Engagement Grant” button on your idea page, (2) complete the proposal entirely, filling in all empty fields, and (3) change the status from "draft" to "proposed." As soon as you’re ready, you should begin to invite any communities affected by your project to provide feedback on your proposal talk page.

If you have any questions about IEG or would like support in developing your proposal, we're hosting a few proposal help sessions this month in Google Hangouts:

I'm also happy to set up an individual session. With thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 00:38, 2 April 2016 (UTC)[reply]
