Extension requestEdit

Is your final report due but you need more time?



Extension requestEdit

New end dateEdit

October 31, 2018

RationaleEdit

The initial proposal was a six months project, but we created a new strategy that involved training the WiR, creating manuals of this training, and establishing a flexible part-time job that allowed us to do more activities with the same budget.

Request approvedEdit

Approving a new end date of October 31, 2018. Glad you're adapting your plan to make best use of the resources available. --Marti (WMF) (talk) 06:39, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Also, noting here that the new final report due date is 30 November 2018. -- Best, JTud (WMF), Grants Administrator (talk) 19:00, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Extension requestEdit

New end dateEdit

Project end date stays the same (October 31, 2018). Final report: February 28, 2019.

RationaleEdit

The project is over but we are still analyzing our outcomes and looking for the best way to present our experiences without repeating what has been said already.

Request 2 approvedEdit

This extension request for February 28, 2019 has been approved, thank for you continuing to work to finish your project analysis and consider how to organize them for this report. I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 20:59, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
