Wow, I want to congratulate you guys/girls for this commendable ventures, especially with regards to advancing wiki-literacy in Mayan language and other Mayan community projects! Now that is an achievement, keep it up! Basque regards --Iñaki LL (talk) 09:44, 10 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you very much! We're looking forward to hosting more events to grow --Andycyca (talk)

Sounds like a super busy month, and well done! Keep up the great work! Astinson (WMF) (talk) 13:37, 10 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks a lot! Will Wikimedia Mexico still be busy in August 2016? Come back next month to find out --Andycyca (talk)

Sorry to hear about your problems with IP throttles and mediawiki making it difficult to do outreach. There is a solution specced on phabricator we just need to lobby the WMF to put resources into it. At the moment it is still held up through a combination of "not invented here", and some people not seeing Outreach as worthy of programmer time. It would help if Wikimedia Mexico were to request the WMF invest in the event organiser's userright WereSpielChequers (talk) 22:23, 10 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]

I confess to being a Phabricator newbie, but it looks like an amazing idea for me! I may be able to ask WMMX to weigh in this issue, as it's often a headache for us. Thanks a lot! --Andycyca (talk) 22:48, 22 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
