Math notation[edit]

During a discussion on this proposal it was suggested that en:Wikipedia:WikiProject Mathematics/Wikipedia 1.0/Frequently viewed/List be surveyed and ranked by how well their prose stands alone without the help of mathematical notation, in their introductions and otherwise, and by how well the math notation used is explained. Please share your thoughts on this suggestion. EllenCT (talk) 16:40, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

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)

WMF Blog[edit]

@Mahusha, PS L Happy, SSneg, JoshMuirWikipedia, Rotideypoc41352, K CMS, and Bsumantb: Hi folks, I wanted to just drop by to let you know that I highlighted your idea here in a recent post on the Wikimedia Foundation blog. I hope it brings some more feedback and participation on how to improve the readability and accessibility folks have to scientific content in our projects. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 23:29, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Status update?[edit]

@I JethroBT (WMF): what is the status of this application? 14:52, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi there! It's currently still in IdeaLab, and needs to be turned into a grant application for Rapid Grants or Project Grants (launching tomorrow) in order for it to be more formally reviewed. IdeaLab is basically a drafting space, so they are basically in an in-progress state here until the idea creator or someone else interested in taking on the project decides to move it forward. That can also happen outside of grants too, for ideas that don't need funding, such as by starting a formal discussion on your home-wiki. I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 14:57, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
