Registration form sends no confirmation email

I think the title says everything. After completing the registration form I got no email that it confirms my registration request was recorded.

@Chen - WMIL or @Rfarrand (WMF) might know better, but I think users are supposed to get a confirmation in the last screen of the form, not via email.

Hello - we have not yet sent confirmation emails. We will be doing so shortly. If you are not requesting scholarship I think it is safe to assume that your registration will be accepted. If you are requesting scholarship we will be in touch shortly.

Your application to attend the 2016 Wikimedia Hackathon in Jerusalem

Wed, Feb 17, 2016 at 7:33 PM


Thank you for applying to attend the 2016 Wikimedia Hackathon in Jerusalem. We received more applications this year than ever before, and despite the high qualifications of the applicants, we could not accept many of them. We are sorry to inform you that your scholarship application for this year's Wikimedia Hackathon has been denied.

Approval is based on the following factors:

-          The applicant is an active Wikimedia volunteer developer

-          The applicant had not been sponsored in the past

-          The applicant has well-thought-out plan to contribute

There are several options for you now:

-          Participate without a scholarship (please let us know if you do, and re-register).  

-          Apply to participate in the upcoming Wikimania Hackathon in Esino Lario

-          Find a sponsor (your employer, your local Wikimedia chapter, or someone else) to cover your costs.

There will be more Wikimedia developer events in the future, and we hope to hear from you again in the future.

Best wishes,

Hackathon 2016 organizers,

Wikimedia Israel
