- Hello~I cannot find the Croatian Wikipedia Asian Month 2020 Fountain pages. Could you help me?--KOKUYO (talk) 18:07, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
- BTW, we find that some Fountain pages cannot be displayed properly, and contacted Le Loi (the tool developer) for this question. He says these pages haven't been created or approved yet.
- The Croatian Wikipedia Asian Month Fountain page need admin (from Croatian Wikipedia) to go to their profile (chick their name at top of the page), select "approval" and approve the editahon. (like this) This change is to prevent creation of vandal editahon with attacks in the title.
- I hope this information will help you. If you have any question, please tell me .-KOKUYO (talk) 09:07, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
Guidance of Fountain tool
Here is a guidance of Fountain tool. If you are wondering how to create an editathon on fountain or want to check the editathon be created or not before WAM start, please feel free to have a look.
Looking forward to meeting you online soon.

Thank you for participation in Ukraine's Cultural Diplomacy Month!
Thank you very much for participating in Ukraine's Cultural Diplomacy Month! My apologies for not sending this message sooner – but be assured, your contributions are very valuable!
The organisers welcome you participation. We hope you had fun! Some users faced the notability issues of the suggested articles; we recognise that the list of suggested articles wasn't flawless.
The project is not ended until all worthy participants receive their souvenirs! There will be another message from the organising team soon about this.
Stay safe, we appreciate you being a Wikipedian that you are -- ViraMotorko (WMUA) (talk) 09:37, 5 April 2021 (UTC)
