Greetings! The Project Grants program is accepting proposals from September 12 to October 11 to fund new tools, research, offline outreach (including editathon series, workshops, etc), online organizing (including contests), and other experiments that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers. Project Grants can support you and your team’s project development time in addition to project expenses such as materials, travel, and rental space.

Also accepting candidates to join the Project Grants Committee through October 1.

Wikinewsie upgrade?

Please update It appears that http://wikinewsie.org/ has been in the process of being upgraded for a month now. Is there an ETA on it? Also, I think the site should get a certificate from https://letsencrypt.org/ for SSL/TLS. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:37, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
