Comments from DSaroyan (WMF)[edit]

Hi magotech, thanks for submitting this Rapid Grant request. After reviewing it, I have some questions and comments:

  • You mentioned that you would have a panel of three to five judges who would judge the contest. Could you please indicate their usernames?
  • Will you have any other experienced Wikimedians who will be supporting you during the events? Could you please add their usernames?
  • Do you expect to have the same 20 participants in each event?


  • We think that food and drink costs are high, kindly reduce this amount.
  • Prize budget is also high, especially, given that you also plan to reimburse participants' travel costs. Please reduce this budget to 200 USD.
  • Why do you propose to rent a camera?

Thanks for organizing another UniStu Love Wiki event. Looking forward to hearing from you. Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 11:47, 19 July 2021 (UTC)

Hello DSaroyan (WMF) thanks for reaching out.
  • So far I have three confirmed judges (i) Idd ninga (ii) Caliben (iii) Olimasy
  • Yes we will have other experienced Wikimedians who will be supporting us during the events. We are planning on inviting the following users to our events ( Kipala, Jadnapac and Rwebogora. However, the list might enlarge depending on the confirmation of more users.
  • No, we don't expect to have the same number, the number will vary from events (We project to have more participants in the second and third events mostly new members).


  • The food and drinks costs have been reduced to the minimum.
  • The prize budget has been reduced and modified as instructed.
  • We propose on renting a camera for the purpose of taking pictures and preparing short promotional video clips which are to be used on promoting UniStu Love Wiki program as it is still a new program to many and it needs online presence.

We thank you again for reaching out and hopping to get more support on this and forthcoming UniStu Love Wiki programs.--Magotech (talk) 15:55, 19 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
