Comments from WMF[edit]

Hello Offordile234, thanks for submitting this Rapid Grant request. We are grateful that you continue your work of improving Nigerian-related data on Wikidata. I have reviewed your grant proposal and have the following comments:

  • We now require all grantees to announce their projects and receive the Wikimedia community feedback in advance. Could you please announce this project and grant on the relevant community pages on the target wikis? Community notification may be most appropriate on a village pump, talk page, or mailing list. Please paste a link into the proposal page to where the relevant communities have been notified of this proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions.
  • Budget:
    • I think that the food and drink expense per person (20 USD) is too high for Nigeria. Could you please provide more details on what you intend to purchase with this amount?
    • What is the internet cost per hour at the Cyber café?
    • Please reduce the Miscellenous costs by half.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 07:15, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Hello DSaroyan (WMF), I do not know much about community pages but i have found the village pump of Igbo Wikimedia User group and have pasted this project there and also put their link in this project. I am still learning how the Wiki systems work.

  • Budget
    • One of the challenges or covid impart in Nigeria is that cost of things have multiplied two some three folds, quality of food to be delivered and cost of delivery was also considered but I can reduce the quality and adjust my budget. the food I was hoping to provide for some event is pounded yam and oha soup and for other events coconut rice with dried fish and yam vegetable for another event. this cost is added to the delivery cost. I have reduced the cost
    • The prices vary from location to location. it is mostly between N500 to N800. The budget for cyber cafe covers more days than the days of the events as people always want to go back to do more edits if provision is made
    • I Have reduced the Miscellaneous from $100 to $50 --Offordile234 (talk) 21:53, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
