Hi, Abakar B! Thank you for submitting your rapid grant proposal. I have two follow-up questions. In the contact info section you link to two profiles, yours and Abdallahbigboy. Is the other user helping or involved in your project in some way? If not, could you please explain why the profile is listed in the contacts? Also please update your request to include a specific end-date for the project, as we need this for our record-keeping. Thank you for making these adjustments and please let us know if you have questions; we are here to assist you. Best regards, LSmith (WMF) (talk) 23:14, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Abakar B! We have a few follow-up questions about your proposal.

  • We consider t-shirts to be a high cost item and therefore recommend giving them as a prize to only a small number of participants. In your application I see that you are planning on having 30 people and have budged for 15 t-shirts. Would it be possible to reduce that number to 5?
  • Your application also lists a budget item for awards for participants. Per our Guidelines and Criteria, please note that we don't allow for cash prizes for contests. Would you be able to provide gift cards, vouchers, or gift certificates only for your prizes?

Please let us know the answers to these questions so that we can proceed in reviewing your application. Best regards, LSmith (WMF) (talk) 22:13, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
