Grants talk:PEG/User:MMelvaer/Just for the record
Hi @Lfurter:, thanks for posting this Idea! I think it's got heaps of potential and I wanted to check in and see if you are interested in developing it further (and if funding is needed, in turning this into a grant proposal -- the Inspire campaign is offering $250,000 in grants funding to gendergap-related projects). There's a couple of days left before the deadline on March 31, if you want to add more detail, rally people to help out, etc. --Skud (WMF) (talk) 00:58, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
Impact on Wikimedia projects
Hi @Lfurter:, @Léonie Butler:, @Sarah magnan:, and @MMelvaer:. Thanks so much for submitting your idea to the Inspire Campaign. We currently are doing our eligibility review of open proposals and it would be great to learn more about how your project will impact the Wikimedia projects. I'm not clear from the activities or measures of success if you will be doing editing training, editathons, or adding content related to women and the gender gap to Wikimedia projects. It would be helpful to learn more! Cheers, Alex Wang (WMF) (talk) 00:50, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
You may want to take a look at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Full_Circle_Gap_Protocol:_Addressing_the_‘Unknown_Unknowns’, which I see as being a related proposal. --Mssemantics (talk) 17:31, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
- Please clarify how the events (presentations/discussions) are connected to impacting the diversity of editors and/or content on Wikipedia. The proposal mentions editing training and editathons, and also mentions documenting ideas developed in the events. We are supportive of awareness building and knowledge sharing around gender issues, but can only fund activities that will directly impact the Wikimedia projects. We also want to be sure that any content created on Wikipedia as a result of these events follows Wikipedia's No original research policy.
- Do you have an idea of the different themes you're interested in hosting events around?
- In order for us to better assess your budget, please let us know how many people you expect at each event.
- Has the team notified the existing Wikimedia community in Belgium. If yes, can you provide a link and let us know what type of response and feedback you've received?
- Please provide more detailed measures of success. For example, # of participants, # of new editors and active editors retained after X months, # of articles written/improved.
- Please provide more details regarding the tools that will be developed in order to ease replication of this type of event.
- It would be great to have more details regarding the communications and publication budgets.

About 2000 € for two small gatherings of 20 persons each isn't especially cheap but I appreciate there were no salaries. If you have produced a handful of (really) active editors that's quite a good thing, however it would help to link them from your report. You can also use toollabs:magnustools/herding_sheep.php.
It's not clear to me if you really used an article talk page as discussion place for the event participants; that would sound like meatpuppeting. Nemo 13:56, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
