Grants talk:IdeaLab/Program coordinator training to handle disruptive behavior on-wiki

  • Given that this is an all volunteer outfit, how would you propose enforcing training on the community as a whole? It seems to me that those of us who came here to volunteer would rather largely and probably very loudly object to the idea of any kind of mandatory training to address this issue, and we all know that leaving training to those who want to volunteer for it under the auspice of the assumption of good faith will be far too few to make any kind of discernable difference.

    This training would be specific to WMF Grantees, not training that everyone is required to take. I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 06:51, 13 June 2016 (UTC)Reply
  • Training by other users, admins etc. already happens and is the core of each user's development. See also d:Q3919128. Nemo 16:13, 5 June 2016 (UTC)Reply
    @Nemo bis: Adopt-a-user is a basically dead program (in part because it's not a sustainable model). Many adopters are no longer active, and I don't think people seeking adoption actually receive follow-ups. It was active for a time, but that is no longer the case.

Grants to improve your project


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
