Hello Pepe piton you have put together a very thorough report. Well done! We were especially impressed with your collaboration efforts that allowed you to tap into a new community of participants. We were also happy to see that you were able to find a work around for the wireless modem that allowed you to keep cost down. Here are a couple of comments for next steps:

  • It looks like you already have a plan in place on how you could recruit more experts for future edit-a-thons but we wanted to add to your resources and recommend [1] as a resource to potentially find more experts.
  • In terms of the remaining funds please follow the instructions here [2] to request reallocation.

I will go ahead and accept this report but we will not be able to close the grant until you follow next steps and we're able to come to a decision on the remaining funds. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 23:10, 4 December 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We will pay the extra money (10.77 USD) from the funds of Wikimedia Uruguay.

At this time, a 2-year Baby Plan renewal costs 262.80 USD. The maintenance of this site is essential to disseminate the work of the chapter.
