Comments from WMFEdit

Hello Danidamiobi, thank you for submitting this Rapid Grant request. We are glad that the Nigerian Wikimedia community is joining the Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos contest. I have reviewed your proposal and have the following questions and comments:

  • You have budgeted 733‬ USD for prizes which is higher from what we allow for this campaign. Please reduce this amount to 500 USD.
  • Is this request credited to any Nigerian Wikimedia affiliate or to any organization? Is any Wikimedia affiliated involved in running this project?
  • Who will confirm the final winners after Precious Ayara recommends them?

Looking forward to your response! Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 06:18, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi, Davit,

Thanks for your response.

  • On the prizes, I have found other brands that are more affordable with lesser features and reduced the amount lesser than 500 USD.
  • This request as I made known in the "Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?" section of the grant is not credited to any Nigerian Wikimedia affiliate or to any organization? Although no Wikimedia affiliated organization will be involved in running this project, I am a two time grantee of the foundation with experience and trust sustained enough to make this happen for new and existing Wiki(m/p)edia users in Nigeria.
  • Answering on who confirms final winners after Precious Ayara recommends them, We will set up an independent jury to help with the review and judging.


Cheers.

Hello Danidamiobi is there a possibility for you and your team to set up an independent jury to help with the review and or judging? I don't think it's a good idea to have only Ayara reviewing contributions. Please consider this option. Regards. T CellsTalk 12:20, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Hello T Cells That is a great idea. We will set up an independent jury to help with the review and judging. Thank you. Danidamiobi (talk) 14:23, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Hello Danidamiobi, thanks for responding to my questions and making the requested changes. I'm sorry for missing the proposal section telling that your grant is not credited to any Nigerian Wikimedia affiliate. Dear T Cells, thank you so much for your feedback!
