In response to COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria, we have postponed this translation-a-thon indefinitely. A new date would be announced. Thank you and please stay safe. Macdanpets (talk) 10:07, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Hello Macdanpets, thanks for your notice and I'm sorry that you had to cancel your event indefinitely due to COVID-19. Could you please request an extension of your grant end date, for instance until October 2021, so that you have time to organize your event and prepare reports? You will just need to post your extension request here and I'll approve it. Thank you, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 07:01, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

Request for permission for offline eventEdit

Sequel to the directives of Nigerian government to holding an in-person gathering up to 50 persons. The Yorùbá Wikimedians hereby request to hold an in-person event on the already funded translation-a-thon which were supposed to have taken place on March 24th to April 4th 2020, but was postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic. However, this request is filed as we follow strictly the guidelines of WMF by filling the risk assessment form here [1].

Thanks @DSaroyan (WMF): for guidance. Agbalagba TC 15:19, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

Hello Agbalaba, thanks for posting your request. I have reviewed and approved it. You can now move forward with your offline gathering. Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 09:13, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
