Feedback on your report[edit]

Dear Hindustanilanguage,

Thank you for submitting this report. I am writing to let you know that we cannot formally review this report until the outcome requirement is met. Please review the reporting section at this link to review our requirements to guide completion of your report. Please ping me on this talkpage when you have finished your outcome and we will give further feedback. Let me know if you have any questions.

Your report conveys that this event was a rich networking experience. It sounds like you made multiple promising connections that have the opportunity to grow into partnerships with further development. In order to make sure you have support around those connections, I am pinging Tighe Flanagan (WMF) to support follow-up with the new contacts you made who expressed interest in the Education Program at Kathmandu University, and possibly also at Toyo University. I am also pinging Asaf Bartov (WMF), who may have suggestions in regard to your conversation with Naif Mastoor Alsulami about establishing a Wikimedia movement affiliate in Saudi Arabia. I also want to mention that it is not necessary to be an affiliate in order to apply for a grant to host an outreach event. We award funds to individuals through our Rapid Grants program. There are guidelines for hosting editathons and other event types posted here.

Warm regards,

Dear @Mjohnson (WMF):,

Thank you for the valuable feedback and helping me in formatting my report to meet the outcome requirements. In line with the the reporting section at this link, I have updated this report with a link to a blog co-written/ co-created by me and a Nepalese Wikipedian with whom I had detailed interaction during the event.

I have a long association with many Nepalese Wikipedians. This includes a WMF blog on Maithili Wikipedia, content contribution on the incubator project and helping it in becoming a live project.I have no such association with Saudi Arabian nor the Japanese delegates. Hence I can only say that I have introduced Wikipedia to them, while my main objective in coming to Nepal is to plan for a Wikipedia Education Program in the host country and I am pleased that one of the native Wikipedians (who co-authored the aforementioned blog with me) is working with other Wikimedians in this direction.

I also thank you for referring to Tighe Flanagan. I have already sent an email and will definitely work with him and Nepalese Wikipedians in the days to come. --Muzammil (talk) 16:18, 28 February 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
