Instructions from

Proposals should be discrete, well-defined tasks that will directly benefit active Wikimedia contributors. Proposals should answer the following questions:

What is the problem that you want to solve?
Which users are affected? (editors, admins, Commons users, Wikipedia users, etc.)
How is this problem being addressed now?
What are the proposed solutions? (if there are any ideas)
Your proposal should be as specific as possible, especially in the problem statement. Don't just say that "(x feature) is out of date", "needs to be improved" or "has a lot of bugs". That's not enough information to figure out what needs to be done. A good proposal explains exactly what the problem is, and who's affected by it. It's okay if you don't have a specific solution to propose, or if you have a few possible solutions and you don't know which is best.

Submitting a proposal is just the beginning of the process. The two-week proposal phase is a time that the community can collaboratively work on a proposal that presents the idea in a way that's most likely to succeed in the voting phase. When a proposal is submitted, everyone is invited to comment on that proposal, and help to make it better — asking questions, and suggesting changes. Similar proposals can be combined; very broad proposals should be split up into more specific ideas. The goal is to create the best possible proposal for the voting phase.

@Masumrezarock100 would you be willing to help with the drafting of this proposal? (If yes, just claim the task in the next few days) The timeframe is "Submit, discuss and revise proposals: October 21 to November 11, 2019"

@DannyS712 Thanks for the offer but I'll have to pass. I am terrible at writing proposals. I'll provide any support needed though.
