Grants talk:IdeaLab/The Protection of Collaborative Information

I like the idea of anonymous reporting, but I don't know that I really like the idea of a filter for specific words. Part of this is because Wikipedia isn't censored and there is a place for some words on Wikipedia that might otherwise be seen as hostile. Creating something that would stop people from using specific words in ways that don't violate Wikipedia guidelines might be seen as harassment. If this wasn't what you intended, I'm slightly confused since we typically use filters to keep people from posting things on Wikipedia rather than to just show that an article is more prone for vandalism.

Grants to improve your project[edit]

Greetings! The Project Grants program is currently accepting proposals for funding. The deadline for draft submissions is tommorrow. If you have ideas for software, offline outreach, research, online community organizing, or other projects that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers, start your proposal today! Please encourage others who have great ideas to apply as well. Support is available if you want help turning your idea into a grant request.

The next open call for Project Grants will be in October 2016. You can also consider applying for a Rapid Grant, if your project does not require a large amount of funding, as applications can be submitted anytime. Feel free to ping me if you need help getting your proposal started. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 22:49, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
