Hello Moabi.othapile thank you for submitting this proposal. Given that you would like to engage with these meetups in May, I am going to move this proposal to draft for now and you can bring it back to proposed in a couple of months. Meanwhile, I would like to provide a couple of comments and questions for you to work on before resubmitting this request:

  1. The description said that this will be for the Wikimedia User Group Botswana but the grant type is still attributed to an individual. Please change it to group and assign it to the User Group.
  2. Have you considered partnering with a university, library or other like-minded partners that can help provide a venue for free? That can help reduce your cost but also help with advertising the event and recruiting participants.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to reviewing this grant request again in the next couple of months. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 02:48, 2 February 2018 (UTC)[]

Adjusting the budget[edit]

Hi Moabi.othapile, thank you for making the correction on the grant type. Your last comment mentioned using a library for the editathon but it doesn't seem like your budget has been adjusted to reflect that. Do you still need the $200 listed in your budget table? Please let me know so we can proceed. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 23:03, 21 February 2018 (UTC)[]

Hello WJifar (WMF) I have adjusted the budget table and the total.You can proceed Best Moabi.othapile

Numbers not adding up[edit]

Hello Moabi.othapile, thank you for adjusting the table. I apologize if I'm not understanding it correctly but it seems to me that each workshop should be $290 USD (90+130+70). For four workshops it should add up to $1160 USD. Please let me know if that's correct and if so please adjust the total at the bottom of the proposal as well as in the side box. Then we can finally proceed with approval. Please let me know. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 03:03, 23 February 2018 (UTC)[]

WJifar (WMF), thank you for noting the errors, I have fixed them.
