Non-financial requirements / 非財務性的需求 edit

See a description of non financial assistance available. Please inform Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) of any requirements for non-financial assistance now.

Requests for non-financial assistance
  • We ask for 12 Wiki T-shirts (all in Men's L size) , 24 pieces of Wiki pins (we've changed the magnets into pins as WMF staff mentioned that it's easier for WMF to send out soft and light souvenirs abroad), and 24 pieces of Wiki stickers. Consider these events are held for testing, to product a little prizes is uneconomical, so that we need request the Foundation to help provide.
  • 我們需要12件維基T-shirt(男生的L號)、24件維基徽章(原本是磁鐵,但基金會工作人員表示基金會寄送輕薄短小的物件較方便也比較不容易碰壞)、以及24件維基貼紙,考量到我們這次活動是試驗性質,在地製作少量維基紀念獎品並不符合經濟效益,所以請求基金會協助提供。

Resources and Risks / 專案所需資源與風險 edit


This section is used to highlight your potential for successfully executing this project.

Consider including the following information:

  • Onwiki evidence of community support (such as a project about this discussion):
  • Endorsements from community members or movement groups:
  • Special skills or qualifications this potential grantee or project lead brings to this project:

This may help the community in Taiwan to participate, and also good for the news and updates of Wikimedia projects spreading in social network websites.
  • The event's core organizer are the following three Wikimedian: Reke, Supaplex, and Shangkuanlc. Since 2012, these 3 people have regularly hosted Wikipedia Writing bootcamp in Taipei. Supaplex and Shangkuanlc also have hosted several mapping parties since 2013. So the 3 people have the knowledge of hosting this event such as the ability of GPS tracking teaching skill, the know-how on writing style of encyclopedia for local articles, and the ability to teach how to upload photos into Wiki commons.
  • We have already negotiated with OpenStreetMap community in Taiwan to promote, to lend us venues, and also to be teaching assistants. The success past mapping party could be read on OpenStreetMap wiki page.
  • "Maps of Literature" Program Leader Vicki Chiu from Department of Cultural Vocation Development in National Taipei University of Technology is also willing to be a keynote speaker, her academic specialty may improve the quality of contents for this event.

  • 我們已經與台灣開放街圖社群確認可協助公益推廣、商借場地以及擔任講師。台灣開放街圖社群熟悉舉辦社群聚會的知識,過去舉辦相關聚會的成功經驗詳見開放街圖維基頁上的社群台灣專題記錄
  • 台北科技大學文化事業發展系文學地圖研究專案主持人也應允擔任講師,她的研究專長有助於提升活動踏察的知識質量。

This section is used to identify key risks or threats that would prevent you from achieving your project goals and how you would mitigate those risks and threats.

Key risks:
  • Difficulty in recruiting new volunteers and ask them to join a paid event.
  • No evaluation and measurement process.
  • Participants may not be able to learn so many operating techniques fluently in just one day event.
  • Little capacity for financial management and reporting.
Mitigating risks:
  • Conduct survey of editing community to understand what volunteers are interested in.
  • Work with PEG team and other community organizations to share knowledge on measurement and evaluation.
  • Translate Editing Wikipedia brochure and distribute this teaching material on event, ask participants to register accounts or other homework beforehand to accelerate the learning process.
  • Designate volunteers for both financial management and reporting through the project period.
  • 招募學員不易,如何宣傳並讓參與者願意支付報名費用
  • 過去沒有評估成效的機制
  • 學員不一定能夠馬上學習,在活動當天便熟練上傳維基共享資源流程、撰寫維基百科以及繪製開放街圖的機制
  • 沒有足夠的人力去做完整的財務管理與文件記錄
  • 進行問卷調查以了解志工對怎樣的活動設計感到有趣,並且也詢問主辦人熟悉的維基人、文史工作者以了解其需求和推廣參與。
  • 引入Wikimetrics的問卷資料收集以評估參與者的後續使用成效。
  • 翻譯「如何編輯維基百科」教材並於當天發放;先行請學員自行上網註冊帳號或是進行作業,以加速熟練過程。
  • 請志工現場進行記帳與報告。
