Hello Centre A: Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, thank you for submitting this comprehensive proposal. This series of edit-a-thons seems like a well-thought project with a lot of support from your side. I have reviewed your proposal and have just one questions.

  • Since the project lead and the main mentor will be Henry Heng Lu, would you please provide this person’s username on Wikimedia projects?

Thank you again for the work you’re putting into running an Art + Feminism campaign at your organization! Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 08:04, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

Dear Davit,
Thank you very much for reviewing our proposal and for your encouraging words. Henry's username is henryhenglu.
Let us know if you have any other questions and if there is anything else we can provide.
Best regards,

Hello CentreAVancouver, thanks for providing the username we requested. I am concerned that this individual does not have sufficient experience with editing English Wikipedia and may not be able to support participants who are new to editing at your event. The username you provided (henryhenglu) has only one edit on English Wikipedia. We cannot fund this request until we can see that there are experienced editors able to support the participants at the event. Are there other usernames that Henry Heng Lu used to edit? Would it be possible to find support from more experienced editors from the Art+Feminism or your local community? Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 07:05, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

Dear Davit DSaroyan (WMF),

Thank you for the suggestion. We have now identified an experienced editor, Derrick Chang (username: fuhying), who will be the editathon leader. We have made changes to our application accordingly - please see item no. 3 under "Project Plan." More information about Derrick's experience can be found here:
