Hi everyone,
First of all, why is everyone else other than the one being questioned addressing the mail?
As Abhinav said, If this is about voicing our opinions and concerns on a public mailing list, I’d like to bring something to your notice and seek your opinions on the same. In 2017, I and Stalinjeet went to Wikimedia Conference, Berlin. There we had an informal SAARC MEETUP and later we were all in the Strategy Discussion Team (as team no. 17), we discussed the issues SAARC Communities are facing and the kind of practices which might work well for the growth of our communities. Based on the discussions and inputs from the members from different communities (SAARC as well as global communities), we prepared a report and proposed the same for presentation at Wikimania, 2017. The presentation was shortlisted, but as both of us were not selected for the scholarship, we had to withdraw our submission as we were not aware of any such funding assistance being offered by CIS-A2K. This is not a complaint but a question that is this financial assistance available only for some specific position holders or is open to all the Wikimedians? and If this assistance is being offered to the Wikimedians, why there was no formal notice about the same?
