Report past due[edit]

This report is almost 6 weeks past due and is still marked as a draft. Will it be completed soon? Thanks, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 19:44, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Reminder: Please complete this report now. WMCA is currently out of compliance with WMF Grants Program requirements. Please contact us at grants at wikimedia dot org with any questions about completing this report or WMCA's current compliance status.

Omg, I'm so sorry, I just realise that our president put the report on the wrong page couple weeks ago (space was missing in the title). I just correct that. Again I'm sorry for the delay. Best regards. Benoit Rochon (talk) 18:07, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
Hi, Benoit: That's great news. Thank you for the response, and we look forward to reviewing the report. Can you confirm if you've yet sent your receipts to WMF? Thanks, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 16:24, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Alan and our new treasurer Linda Chew are currently working on this right now. Receipts will be sent asap. Benoit Rochon (talk) 16:29, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks to WMCA's team for working on that. In the mean time, please continue to monitor this discussion page for comments. Best, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 16:06, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Report incomplete[edit]

Hello! This report is missing an entire section: Impact. Please complete this section and let us know once the report is complete and ready for review. Contact us with any questions about completing this section at grants at wikimedia dot org. Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 20:44, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for adding this. We'll continue with review. Best, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 00:44, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for this report[edit]

Thank you for this informative report.

We are pleased that your strategies are being informed by a desire to develop an understanding how event participants may become longterm contributors to the movement, and that you will be focusing on growing your volunteer base through your activities. The Contribution Day activity seemed to be a success: we were interested in reading about how you brought together a group of experienced Wikipedians who had not met before to work on a single project.

There are a few items we would like you to clarify:

  • You mention, "During the year 2012, we have seen several educational projects emerge across Quebec initiated by teachers who attended the conference." Please share some information about these projects that were initiated if it is available.
  • About the measure, "Contact with more francophone community participants," you state, "Members of QC Group should be consulted." We are not sure what this statement means. Do you mean that this information is not yet available?
  • About the measure, "Progress towards a program for movement content in the classroom," you state, "Ask Quebec members if this impact was realized." As above, we are not sure why this statement is included. Are you still planning on finding that information to add to the report?

Thank you, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 23:44, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello! We are still waiting on responses to these few questions before accepting the report. Cheers, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 16:58, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Sorry again for the delay. In 2014, I will need someone to work exclusively on the grant request/report... I'm so busy with our activities, that I didn't realise you were waiting for clarifications. I add more informations as requested, I hope this answer strong points you mention above. I'll send you a private message with all the receipts. Thank you for pointing out what was missing, that helped a lot. Best regards, Benoit Rochon (talk) 01:10, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Remaining funds[edit]

Regarding remaining funds, we have noticed that you do not currently have a grant submission open. We would ask that you submit a new request within 21 days, or before 11 July, or return the unused funds to WMF. You may retain the funds at WMF's instruction until 11 July or until a decision is delivered on your new request if that request is submitted before 11 July. Regards, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 23:44, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I'm into this right now. I'm planning to reconduct the funds for 2013 projects. Thanks for everithing, and your patience! Best regards, Benoit Rochon (talk) 10:26, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
A new grant request for Grants:WM CA/Programs 2013 is currently being considered, and so WMCA will retain these unused funds with WMF's permission until a decision on that request is delivered. Cheers, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 20:36, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for updating this report[edit]

Hello, Benoit: thank you very much for updating the report as requested! We are ready to accept it, once we receive the receipts. Please do also note the requirement above regarding the remaining funds: we will need a request submitted by 11 July in order to allow WMCA to retain the funds beyond that date. Cheers, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 20:44, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
