Great idea, thank You. --Kusurija (talk) 10:11, 27 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I took a few days to think about this one. For the downside, I'm concerned about discussion leading to retaliation. For the upside, it looks like this would provide an avenue for bystanders to take some form of action. For example, only a sanctioned editor may initiate formal discussion of that sanction, and then only at specific times and with specific people. For the other downside, that scenario sounds extremely vulnerable to meat puppetry. Darkfrog24 (talk) 17:51, 27 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Grants to improve your projectEdit

Greetings! The Project Grants program is currently accepting proposals for funding. The deadline for draft submissions is tommorrow. If you have ideas for software, offline outreach, research, online community organizing, or other projects that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers, start your proposal today! Please encourage others who have great ideas to apply as well. Support is available if you want help turning your idea into a grant request.

The next open call for Project Grants will be in October 2016. You can also consider applying for a Rapid Grant, if your project does not require a large amount of funding, as applications can be submitted anytime. Feel free to ping me if you need help getting your proposal started. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 22:49, 1 August 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
