Risks edit

  • Lack of time - Punjabi Wikimedians consists such Wikimedians who are active or very active editors but they are not comfortable to do voluntarily work. Currently community has no full-time or part-time employees. So organizing such a program by volunteers may cause some problems as not everyone can work full-time.
