1. In the past fundraisings, we had multiple questions / requests for
detailed budget, expenses etc on talk pages. Some were really severe
criticisms in my impression. So I think, it will be better to provide
such information before we start a new round.
2. Concerning comments on past fundraisings, not every donors of us
didn't seem parts of editing community and some thought themselves not
parts of the community but just visitors/users. Before starting a new
fundraising campaign, we are better to remind whom we will ask a help.
