Hey @abdelillah77 – thanks for the proposal. Have you reviewed the new guidelines for assessment from the Marketing DAO posted since relaunch?

If not, check those out as there are a number of things in this proposal that we can no longer support, e.g. events, social media moderation.

We are also in a position right now to fund for one month at a time based on our budget constraints. I also think there could be new avenues for funding regional groups coming in the New Year.

I do support the idea of funding high-quality translations of content to broaden the French speaking audience.

You may want to wait for more feedback from other council members, but I think your best bet here is to review the guidelines and revise the proposal to focus on translations and what is in scope for us right now, reduce to on month and let us know once you’ve updated. Thanks!


Thanks for your proposal,

We are no longer able to support Community Management and there are limitations around Giveaways, which I personally do not support. Some of the reasoning here is that a thriving community manages itself from engaged members and there has been some seriously questionable activity around giveaways in some communities with very little transparency (broad statements, not referring to French community).

I am a big advocate for in-person events and love to see that Meetups are among the plans. As Lorraine has mentioned, these types of events now fall under the Events team at NF. I’ll send you the form so you can apply for funding for these directly.

It is unclear to me what events are you representing? Does this cover the cost of the tickets, travel, compensation for time and representing NEAR? Speaking engagements? you are looking at having a booth or sponsorship this too would have to be channelled through Events team at NF.

I’m willing to support this proposal pending some review on the items above. Happy to jump on a call if needed.

Thank you for your reply … Thank you also for @so608 and @Dacha
I have modified everything you mentioned to make it fit the rules
One thing left that I mentioned is the events…we mentioned that the amount allocated for them is for three months and not for a month (we are at the end of the year so there are no important events now, but I asked for the amount now so that we can book tickets from now for some event’s, we are searching for some events in France and Canada (Quebec and Montreal ) that fit With us in terms of timing , Price of tickets and travel costs ), we will not request another amount in this matter until we finish the amount allocated for it, we will clarify everything in the reports.

Also @satojandro about ( event’s / meet-up ) pls Send me the form so that I can apply for funding for it directly.

@abdelillah77 I’ve reached out to the events team on your behalf for guidance. I can support the revised proposal if you remove the events portion from the budget at this time. Or we can wait to hear further from the events team on next steps.

Thank you for clarifying the questions and reducing the budget.

You have my support at $1400.

As we move forward, we have set aside detailed instructions for the proposal format.

More specifically, please try to provide more detail on the deliverables in terms of the type of content and themes of the content (what it’s about).
