Comments from WMF edit

Hello, Wikimedia Nigeria; thank you for your work in organizing WLM 2019 in your country. We have received greater demand than we expected for this edition of WLM, and we decided to use the budget to fund all the initiatives, rather than fund a select few. Because of this, we are asking all organizers to edit down their budgets to under 1000 USD.

Taking a look at your budget, I have the following reflections.

  1. It seems that, in your case, the budget could cover the prizes and either the launching event (with reduced costs) or the second event, but not both. I will let you decide which is more important to you.
  2. Remember that, as per the current funding guidelines, some parts of your budget cannot be funded -- T-shirts, travel expenses. This might be helpful to consider as you make the choice of the parts of your proposal you'll keep as you try to adjust it down to 1000 USD.

Please keep me posted when you update the budget. Regards, MMontes (WMF) (talk) 03:07, 15 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MMontes (WMF): Apologies for the delayed reply, based on your recommendation the following budgetary items have been revisited:
  1. T-Shirt ( Removed)
  2. Travelling Expenses ( Removed)
  3. Food & Beverages ( Reduced from 50 - 30)

The new grant figure is $ 1149.99. Wikimedia Nigeria (talk) 06:54, 19 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Wikimedia Nigeria; other countries are in the process of revising to bring their grants to under 1000 USD. Please do the same and ping me when you have done so. Regards, MMontes (WMF) (talk) 15:56, 19 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
