Template:Grants card[edit]

Hello Davit,

Thank you for this template. I'm using it to list the projects of Wikimédia France! Pyb (talk) 21:45, 20 November 2021 (UTC)Reply

Salut Pyb. The page looks great, thank you for using the template I created. I'm glad it's helpful for others too. All the best, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 06:51, 22 November 2021 (UTC)Reply

Thank you![edit]

Hi Davit, Thank you for your clarification on my proposed Photowalk in Akuapem. I appreciate it. I will work on and clearly explain next time. Thank you once again Robertjamal12 (talk) 11:36, 23 November 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Robertjamal12, thank you! And I'm sorry again for any inconvenience caused. Wishing you all the best. DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 15:46, 23 November 2021 (UTC)Reply

Can we translate Template:Rapid_Grant_report please? (translation)[edit]

Could we add <nowiki><languages /> tag to Template:Rapid_Grant_report&type=revision&diffmode=source Template:Rapid_Grant_report please? (actually translation will happen on its documentation page). I reason that the page is handy; to appoint and onboard whoever is going to write the report on the project team; to compose workflow chart, reporting is an essential part that is often overlooked; and without reporting in mind from the start, later people struggle to find evidences/dates/receipts to write the grantee report IMHO. Standing by to translate, cheers, -- Omotecho (talk) 07:39, 8 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

Dear Omotecho, thanks for your willingness to support. However, that instruction page is heavily outdated. Translating it may confuse applicants even more. We are currently working on new templates and grant/reporting workflows which will be finalized soon. We will then try to prepare instructions in more languages. Thanks, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 12:16, 10 January 2022 (UTC)Reply
Done So wonderful update. Thank you for considering replying me, and this thread is done for me now. May good luck stay with your team forwarding on Grants restart which is such a huge task to anybody. Cheers, --Omotecho (talk) 13:52, 10 January 2022 (UTC)Reply
@Omotecho: thanks for offering your help and for your kind words. All the best, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 14:20, 10 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

Kindly supply tech support and help finished translation go-around update[edit]

Hello, @DSaroyan (WMF), I found your name on the editing history ant wish you could look into a matter. I see a small fix needed at a segment for mw:Grants talk:Programs/Wikimedia Community Fund/en, and we need to add USD as to indicate currency for budget fitureg. The issue is that the segment has already been worked upon by many languages, where translators having added manually the lacking term, "USD". Would you kindly talk with translation people and maybe arrange the fix on your side, or not flag *update needed* as translators' circle has a tremendous amount to work on for Grants/RfC for coming Board election ? Maybe Danny or Pols12 could do the magic? If it be a tall task, then, well, yet-to-translate language translators will need to do the guess work those have been experienced by those translators who had contributed on this segment, and that is not very kind. Cheers, -- Omotecho (talk) 15:30, 11 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

Dear Omotecho, sorry for the delayed response. I just updated the original version and all translations with the confusing amounts. I also went through the page and updated any other confusing amounts adding 'USD' next to them. Let me know if you find any other issues on the page. Thanks so much for reporting! All the best, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 10:11, 17 January 2022 (UTC)Reply
@DSaroyan (WMF), you are so kind to release task from translators' shoulders. That is a very warm and unwritten asurrance that somebody is watching/caring <3 FYI, I checked /ko page, which language I don't comprehend at all, but can see local translator has checked and everything is fine. Have a nice week, salute (kampai 乾杯 (ja) with good matcha tea (: Cheers, --Omotecho (talk) 11:21, 17 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

New tables[edit]

Re [1], any chance the default setting could be uncollapsed for these please? Otherwise it's necessary to manually click 'Expand' for each row, just to see if there's anything there, rather than just being able to quickly look through the table. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 14:55, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Hi Mike Peel, thanks for the feedback. Sure, I'll try to do it and get back to you. Best, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 15:09, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Hi again Mike Peel, confirming that for the current rounds, the rows will be uncollapsed. Did you also want to have uncollapsed rows for the past rounds? I'm afraid it can make the page longer but if you request, I can make all of them uncollapsed on the NWE regional page.--DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 15:18, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Thanks! For the previous rounds, I think it's fine for the overall table to be collapsed to start with, but when you expand it then it should probably show all of the subtables rather than having them individually collapsed. I'd also suggest that the Draft/Under review categories and entries on the table are deleted once there are no more proposals in those categories after the round ends, since there's no point keeping them. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 17:06, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

My Mailbox never received Reply Letter from WMF_Grant_Help_Team[edit]

Hello David !! 我自從 2022 年 6 月 17 日用電子郵件回复您 wmf.fluxx 網站問題已經解決,從那個時間一直到現在為止,因為很多項目的說明不太明白,在元維基網站上查詢到相關的運動負責團隊公告的聯絡郵件信箱,但是一直都沒有得到任何一個管理團隊的回覆郵件,可以請您協助查詢是我的郵件信箱有問題,還是MediaWiki(維基媒體使用的軟件開發平台) 在2021年參加協作時被視為破壞,被列郵件黑名單(包含全域用戶名稱連結的郵件信箱),永久封禁登入協助平台所造成的問題。#language:zh-Traditional,ISO Language Code:zho,zh-hant Google translate: I have replied to you by email on June 17, 2022. The problem with the wmf.fluxx website has been resolved. From that time until now, because the description of many projects is not clear, I have checked the relevant sports teams on the meta wiki website. The contact email for the announcement, but I have not received any reply email from the management team. Could you please help me to find out if there is a problem with my email, or if MediaWiki (the software development platform used by Wikimedia) is being collaborated in 2021 It is regarded as sabotage, and it is blacklisted by mail (including the mailbox with the link of the global user name), and the problem caused by the permanent ban on logging in to the assistance platform。Jc.Msndy(discussion←°°or use this notification me°°→email) 05:09, 2 October 2022 (UTC)Reply

This seems weird[edit]

Hi @DSaroyan (WMF). Strange to see that the @CR-FluxxBot posted an application from Fluxx that I didn't actually submit, but deleted, and then filled a request there individually because the user group even though recognised isn't registered with local government. This is at Grants:Programs/Wikimedia Community Fund/Rapid Fund/DCW Bhopal Photo Event 2022 (ID: 21917796). Would the correct application be updated automatically at the same address? Thanks, ─ The Aafī (talk) 17:33, 15 July 2022 (UTC)Reply

Dear TheAafi, thanks for bringing this to my attention. The bot doesn't delete withdrawn applications. However, I just deleted that duplicate proposal. You can find your submitted application here: Grants:Programs/Wikimedia_Community_Fund/Rapid_Fund/DCW_Bhopal_Photo_Event_2022_(ID:_21917963). Let me know if you have any other question. Best, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 10:10, 20 July 2022 (UTC)Reply

Response from facilitator[edit]

Hi davit I am reaching out to you, in response to the reply from one of our facilitators Tochiprecious who you informed us that she didn't approve to be a facilitator in our project, I want to inform you that we have ironed out the issue. And agreement is now in place. I am sorry for the inconvenience and miscommunication from our communication team. Thanks

I hope to get feedback from you soon on this regard. Best regards. Isaacayodele32 (talk) 10:38, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply

Translation markup[edit]

Hi @DSaroyan (WMF): I've added some missing tvars on Grants:Project/Rapid and marked it for translation. I also changed reflist to reflist-talk because I found the website link very much weird in between of the whole page. reflist-talk put it inside a box at the very end of that section. My opinion is that if there is possibility of getting more such links included there, why don't we simply add a reflist at the very bottom of article? Best, ─ The Aafī (talk) 12:08, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hi TheAafi, thanks so much for making these changes! I agree regarding the reflist and its weird position, I'll move it to the bottom of the page. Thanks again! --DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 12:26, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Thanks Davit. ─ The Aafī (talk) 13:03, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply


Hi Davit, I was just checking with Grants:Project/Rapid. It needs some help with markup. I have prepared the current conversation hours. However, I had a question about past conversations. There are some which are in translation whilst others are not. I guess past ones are not relevant right now for translation. Please let me know if you need my assistance with marking them up as well. I'd be glad. ─ The Aafī (talk) 10:15, 2 March 2023 (UTC)Reply

I have another observation that you can notice from this edit. I have kept language names and dates out of translation and used codes like {{DateT|2023|2|1}} and {{lg|en}}. Having it this way not only saves us from translating dates and language names again and again, but updates the stuff by default on the translated pages. Best, ─ The Aafī (talk) 10:25, 2 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hi TheAafi, thanks so much for your support! There is no need to translate or mark for translation the past conversation hours. As you mentioned, they are not relevant. Thanks for your help also to mark the current conversation hours table for translation; I made one minor adjustment to it. I recently learned about {{DateT|}} and {{lg|}} templates and I use them for any new content that I mark for translation. I also like Template:LabelT and Template:Tunit a lot! Do you know any other translation templates that are helpful to avoid extra translation work? Thanks, --DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 12:01, 3 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
@DSaroyan (WMF), I also learn new things timely. If I come across anything helpful, I would surely like to share it with you. ─ The Aafī (talk) 12:44, 3 March 2023 (UTC)Reply

Category:Rapid/Proposals/Movement Strategy Grants in 2021-22[edit]

Hi DSaroyan, I came across Category:Rapid/Proposals/Movement Strategy Grants in 2021-22 which seems to be a specific category for Movement Strategy grants for year 2021-22 per its name but it includes current year proposals also. If it is an error kindly fix it. Thankyou. :) signed, 511KeV (talk) 09:03, 1 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hello @DSaroyan (WMF), I was unaware of this. Thanks for the note. I'll drop an email to Jacqueline right away. ─ Aafi @ DCW (talk) 09:11, 22 January 2024 (UTC)Reply


Good day, please some time to read Meta:Translate extension. Your actions as a translation admin to Grants:Programs/Wikimedia_Research_&_Technology_Fund/Wikimedia_Research_Fund created unnecessary amount of outdated translation when the whole chunk of text is replaced. --Minorax«¦talk¦» 13:49, 30 January 2024 (UTC) --Minorax«¦talk¦» 13:49, 30 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hello @Minorax, sorry if my actions caused frustration or extra work. I'll review the page one more time but could you point me to the specific diff / edit which was problematic? I always try to keep as many translations as possible but maybe I missed something? Sorry again and thanks for pointing this out! DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 13:54, 30 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

Funded_Conferences/2023-24 for translation[edit]

Hi, Davit, thank you updating Funded_Conferences/2023-24 that is very interesting for those who will think of becoming a Conference Comm member, as canvassed by 4 June 2024. (: Would you care if I try and add translation tags for that page listng Conferences in near future please? -- Omotecho (talk) 14:14, 16 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hello @Omotecho. Done, the page is ready for translation now. I tried to automate most of the translations but had an issue with date format when switching languages. Let me know if you also encounter that error. Thank you! DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 10:19, 17 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
