Committee for the allocation of grants[edit]

Dear ones, I would like to know how to be part of the evaluation committee for the allocation of grants, thanks, --Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 20:38, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

That's a good question. I want to know, too--BruneiWMUA (talk) 17:26, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]


is this a typo/mistake (duplicate 'community') or am I not understanding a nuance in the text? Child and Youth Safety Policy must be in place for any activity that involves community underage community members. Thanks! Effeietsanders (talk) 16:45, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Effeietsanders: Fixed, thanks for the catch. :) I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 17:40, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Viewing previous successful grants[edit]

Before the Grants Relaunch Process, there used to be a page listing previous grant proposals which were funded (and also not funded IRRC). It was a good resource to see what to do and what not to do when doing a grant proposal, but as far as I can gather, with the change to an external system for grant applications, such a page no longer exists. Is this correct? InsaneHacker (talk) 16:37, 12 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I just realized the pre-relaunch pages are still available, so grant proposals from back then are viewable, but it would be beneficial to be able to view approved grant proposals from after the relaunch. InsaneHacker (talk) 16:41, 12 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes. It's important to assess quickly the average workload associated with an application. Is it one day one page or one week 8 pages document ? Few demo applications (not the longest) would define the best practice within minutes and wipe out uncertainty. :) Yug (talk) 20:26, 22 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Light hierarchic improvement[edit]

@I JethroBT (WMF) and DSaroyan (WMF): Hello there. As I read the Grants:Programs/Wikimedia_Community_Fund#General_Support_Fund_2's section and rotating schedules I noticed some possible improvements for concision and clarity, so I went ahead with some modifications ('It's a wiki'). But since this page is rather a "WMF's staff" page, please review those changes. It's mainly on hierarchy : detailed schedules moved as subsections of #General_Support_Fund_2. I also add group regions per group A and group B (two groups) rather that having to follow each region. I hope it helps. Yug (talk) 12:16, 21 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Yug: Looks good to me, and thanks for your work. I think these changes are helpful. However, because these pages concern programs maintained by Foundation staff, I'd request that you let us know what changes you'd like to make before implementing them next time. You can bring this to our attention either on Grants talk:Start here or by e-mailing communityresources(_AT_) I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 22:22, 21 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@I JethroBT (WMF): Got it, I will report future improvements on the talk page an ping you & active staff members as recommended. Thank for the review, too ! Yug (talk) 20:24, 22 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Current Wikimedia Grants:Regions.
Found one. Add the map of the 8 regions into the same section. File:Wikimedia_Foundation_Funds_Regions.svg. Add the link Grants:Regions on table's title cell "Regions". This later page has an explicit legend. Accronyms such as CEE, SAAR, etc are too opaque for non-meta folks. Yug (talk) 20:44, 22 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Yug: Add the map of the regions into the same section Which section? Do you mean create a map image for each region page with that region highlighted? I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 03:13, 23 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@I JethroBT (WMF): Objective is to convey the definition of each regions to the reader / Grant applicant. Add the existing map in Grants:Programs/Wikimedia_Community_Fund#General_Support_Fund_2 should be enough. Yug (talk) 07:50, 23 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Yug: Yes check.svg Done [1] I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 08:02, 23 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Fast! Thank you. Yug (talk) 14:24, 23 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Round 2 calendar adjustment for regions from Group A[edit]

Dear All,

Based on feedback from the communities, the Community Resources Team proceeded to change the General Support Fund round 2 calendar to March-April for the CEE and Central Asia, the United States and Canada, Latin America and The Caribbean, and the Middle East and Africa regions. Thank you, Mercedes Caso (platícame) 19:07, 22 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@MCasoValdes (WMF): wouldn't that change (Group A, Round 2: February-March ⇒ March-April) mechanically affect Group B's round two (April-May) ? Yug (talk) 20:30, 22 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
HiYug, Thank you for your comment. The calendar change of round 2 for Group A does not automatically affect or generate changes to Group B. Mercedes Caso (platícame) 20:50, 22 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Dr. Subhani here.[edit]

Dear sir, Happy New Year from Pakistan. This is Dr. Subhani here. We (Dr. Subhani and Amber Osman) were working on the proposal for Wikimedia Research fund and we are already done with writing the propsal. Due to no access of internet since couple of days in our town, we were not able to submit the proposal on time. Kindly extend the date for submission for us as we are from the less privileged town.

Hoping to hear from you soon.

Best, Dr. Subhani 15:31, 4 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

For archive happiness: this is now resolved as the applicants reached out to us and we found an appropriate solution.
