Grants Friendly space expectations Edit

Your comments on Wikidata Quick Sheets do not meet the Friendly space expectations and have been deleted.

Contributors to the Meta-wiki Grants namespace are expected to follow the Friendly Space Expectations at all times. These expectations are needed to ensure a pleasant environment for focused discussions where contributors engage respectfully. This is not your first violation of the friendly space expectations. Your comments demonstrate a sustained pattern of disrupting productive conversations in the grants name space and are not acceptable. If subsequent violations occur, we will consider further action, such as advocating for you to be banned from the grants namespace.

  • @AWang (WMF): Alex - At what point is this considered censorship? I wrote a critical response of the grant. It was not personal, was based on facts. It seems counterproductive to delete dissenting viewpoints to grant funding. — Erika aka BrillLyle (talk) 20:16, 4 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Is not an endorsement so I removed it.
    • @AWang (WMF): FYI, this user is also the subject at Wikidata:Administrators'_noticeboard#Stalking_and_Harassment. Multichill (talk) 20:20, 5 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • The endorsements are also a space to bring up concerns and not' endorse, aren't they? This is not acceptable that my comment was deleted. I was focusing on the facts of the grant proposal. Multichill you seem to be acting on a personal vendetta against me after the whole deleting of the catalog property on Wikidata. I suggest you stop, as it is not okay to attack me like this. -- BrillLyle (talk) 20:26, 5 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
        • Hi BrillLyle. The endorsement section is used to show support for funding a grant proposal. Constructive feedback that complies with the Friendly space expectations is welcome on the discussion page. Alex Wang (WMF) (talk) 20:37, 5 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
