  • We would like to understand, tools you used in tracking the output [ including article contributions] of the participants who participated in the events and campaigns.

Hello VThamaini (WMF), Thank you for the questions.

  • We have carried out some level of promotions on Instagram and Facebook on promoting Wikivoyage and the webinar we hosted.

You can see more about the campaigns at Instagram Facebook

  • We have not started the contest yet. The contest would be holding from December to January, where we will be organizing live training sessions. We would be using the Wikimedia Outreach dashboard to track metrics from the project.

We have only carried out promotional campaigns for Wikivoyage as a travel guide, a webinar on Wikivoyage for Tourism and meeting with different tourism organizations.

We have also recorded videos to help newcomers learn how to edit and contribute to Wikivoyage.

We are in the process of uploading it to Wikimedia Commons and YouTube.

The videos was developed by Haylad and Timmylegend. The video editing was outsourced to an external contractor.

The challenge of time was due to the long duration of the project that we initially planned to be eight months long. We could have achieved the outcomes of the project in a shorter duration.

  • The website has been created and can be accessed at [1]

We have been able to establish a solid partnership with 3 organizations out of the many organizations we reached out to.

The organizations are Explore 9ja, 36 Destinations Nigeria and Association of Tourism Practitioners of Nigeria.

They would be supporting in terms of awareness and publicity, provision of travel information expertise and content donation (pictures).

Thank you Isaac for the response to the questions; we have more clarity on the progress of some of the project outcomes expected. We look forward to learning more about the impact you achieve from the project in the final report and encourage you to be as detailed as possible and to include items that allow us to see the impact including dashboards. We hope to learn about the contribution made by the contest participants and the outcomes of the partnerships you have stated above.

We wish you the very best. --VThamaini (WMF) (talk) 14:58, 10 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
