We want to remind all participants on this discussion page that the Community Resources and Research Fund teams have specific expectations regarding discussion about proposals in this space. In the Community Resources team's behavioral expectations for this space, anyone with concerns about a proposal is welcome to express them in a constructive and supportive manner. However, to the extent that feedback is excessive, contains personalized and disparaging remarks about the applicant or their organization, or if the concerns are expressed in an hostile or punitive manner, they may be removed from the discussion page partially or entirely. Relatedly, participants should follow the Universal Code of Conduct, which contains the minimum level of guidelines for communications and behavior on Wikimedia projects. These expectations are important, we want to ensure that conversations about proposals in our funding programs are productive, that is, focused on building shared understanding and generally supporting applicants to improve their ideas and projects, regardless of what funding decision is made.
We ask you to respond to the following questions:
- In what ways do you think this research can support you or other members of the Wikimedia communities in the work that you do on the Wikimedia projects?
- What advice do you have for the authors to improve their research or the impact of their research? (We encourage you to share with the authors projects or initiatives that you think can benefit from the result of their research. This can help the authors connect their work with ongoing projects in the early stages of their research.)
- Please share any other feedback about this proposal that you think the Research Fund Committee should consider below.
Please use Add feedback button below to add your feedback.
If I read the proposal correctly, this is meant as a global project, and it might then be a good idea to consider in the budget language translation and interpretation. In Brazil, where I am from and where we work with around 50 GLAMs, to share a survey in English only would lead to a very low response rate as most potential respondents do not speak English. Likewise, I think potential interviewees might not feel comfortable being interviewed in English. This might be true in other contexts as well. Joalpe (talk) 13:50, 24 February 2023 (UTC)
