Urgent: Incomplete candidate applicationEdit

Hello @Gilbert Ndihokubwayo: Thank you for applying as a candidate to the Movement Charter's Drafting Committee. This is a message to let you know that all the field of the application template are mandatory (except for adding a photo, which is optional). Because you have left one or more of the mandatory fields empty, your application is currently incomplete and, if not completed by 1 September, will not be considered during the selection process. We kindly ask you to complete the application as soon as possible. If you're facing any issues with this, please let me know and I'll do my best to help out --Abbad (WMF) (talk) 12:41, 5 August 2021 (UTC).

My candidature to the Movement Charter's Drafting CommitteeEdit

Hello dear Abbad.

Thank you for your message, I am glad to kindly read from you about my candidature to the Movement Charter's Drafting Committee. I had encountered difficulties to submit my application, the reason why they are some field not fulfilled. I will redo and sent my candidature.

In the meantime, in the application template, I did not distinguish the “image” which is optional, and the “image caption”. Are these the same? If not, can you tell me what to fulfill at the “image caption” item? and how to do it? Waiting forward to reading from you! --Gilbert Ndihokubwayo (talk) 15:35, 5 August 2021 (UTC)

@Gilbert Ndihokubwayo: Dear Gilbert, apologies for the delay in my reply (you haven't pinged me so I'd to manually check the talk page). To answer your question, the "image caption" is NOT needed unless you're adding an "image", which is completely optional and up to you (in other words, both the "image" and "image caption" are optional). I hope that helps. If you're having any other difficulty with completing your application, please let me know --Abbad (WMF) (talk) 10:07, 11 August 2021 (UTC).
