Hi Dsaroyan I just asked you a question on my grant page here. I would be waiting for your response soon. Thanks. Lordgentual (talk) 13:43, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

I just saw and responded to it. Thank you, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 13:51, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

Template:Grants cardEdit

Hello Davit,

Thank you for this template. I'm using it to list the projects of Wikimédia France! Pyb (talk) 21:45, 20 November 2021 (UTC)

Salut Pyb. The page looks great, thank you for using the template I created. I'm glad it's helpful for others too. All the best, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 06:51, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

Thank you!Edit

Hi Davit, Thank you for your clarification on my proposed Photowalk in Akuapem. I appreciate it. I will work on and clearly explain next time. Thank you once again Robertjamal12 (talk) 11:36, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

Hi @Robertjamal12, thank you! And I'm sorry again for any inconvenience caused. Wishing you all the best. DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 15:46, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

Can we translate Template:Rapid_Grant_report please? (translation)Edit

Could we add <nowiki><languages /> tag to Template:Rapid_Grant_report&type=revision&diffmode=source Template:Rapid_Grant_report please? (actually translation will happen on its documentation page). I reason that the page is handy; to appoint and onboard whoever is going to write the report on the project team; to compose workflow chart, reporting is an essential part that is often overlooked; and without reporting in mind from the start, later people struggle to find evidences/dates/receipts to write the grantee report IMHO. Standing by to translate, cheers, -- Omotecho (talk) 07:39, 8 January 2022 (UTC)

Dear Omotecho, thanks for your willingness to support. However, that instruction page is heavily outdated. Translating it may confuse applicants even more. We are currently working on new templates and grant/reporting workflows which will be finalized soon. We will then try to prepare instructions in more languages. Thanks, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 12:16, 10 January 2022 (UTC)
  Done So wonderful update. Thank you for considering replying me, and this thread is done for me now. May good luck stay with your team forwarding on Grants restart which is such a huge task to anybody. Cheers, --Omotecho (talk) 13:52, 10 January 2022 (UTC)
@Omotecho: thanks for offering your help and for your kind words. All the best, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 14:20, 10 January 2022 (UTC)

Kindly supply tech support and help finished translation go-around updateEdit

Hello, @DSaroyan (WMF), I found your name on the editing history ant wish you could look into a matter. I see a small fix needed at a segment for mw:Grants talk:Programs/Wikimedia Community Fund/en, and we need to add USD as to indicate currency for budget fitureg. The issue is that the segment has already been worked upon by many languages, where translators having added manually the lacking term, "USD". Would you kindly talk with translation people and maybe arrange the fix on your side, or not flag *update needed* as translators' circle has a tremendous amount to work on for Grants/RfC for coming Board election ? Maybe Danny or Pols12 could do the magic? If it be a tall task, then, well, yet-to-translate language translators will need to do the guess work those have been experienced by those translators who had contributed on this segment, and that is not very kind. Cheers, -- Omotecho (talk) 15:30, 11 January 2022 (UTC)

Dear Omotecho, sorry for the delayed response. I just updated the original version and all translations with the confusing amounts. I also went through the page and updated any other confusing amounts adding 'USD' next to them. Let me know if you find any other issues on the page. Thanks so much for reporting! All the best, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 10:11, 17 January 2022 (UTC)
@DSaroyan (WMF), you are so kind to release task from translators' shoulders. That is a very warm and unwritten asurrance that somebody is watching/caring <3 FYI, I checked /ko page, which language I don't comprehend at all, but can see local translator has checked and everything is fine. Have a nice week, salute (kampai 乾杯 (ja) with good matcha tea (: Cheers, --Omotecho (talk) 11:21, 17 January 2022 (UTC)
@Omotecho: arigato! Have a great day too! --DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 12:12, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

New tablesEdit

Re [1], any chance the default setting could be uncollapsed for these please? Otherwise it's necessary to manually click 'Expand' for each row, just to see if there's anything there, rather than just being able to quickly look through the table. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 14:55, 22 March 2022 (UTC)

Hi Mike Peel, thanks for the feedback. Sure, I'll try to do it and get back to you. Best, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 15:09, 22 March 2022 (UTC)
Hi again Mike Peel, confirming that for the current rounds, the rows will be uncollapsed. Did you also want to have uncollapsed rows for the past rounds? I'm afraid it can make the page longer but if you request, I can make all of them uncollapsed on the NWE regional page.--DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 15:18, 22 March 2022 (UTC)
Thanks! For the previous rounds, I think it's fine for the overall table to be collapsed to start with, but when you expand it then it should probably show all of the subtables rather than having them individually collapsed. I'd also suggest that the Draft/Under review categories and entries on the table are deleted once there are no more proposals in those categories after the round ends, since there's no point keeping them. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 17:06, 22 March 2022 (UTC)
