Mehmet Atakan Foça sent the following comments after the assessment was submitted
1a) As assessor noticed, I am the only shareholder of the company and head of the board of the association. Until this year we have not been sure which was the best organizational structure for teyit.org. We are going to change the name of the company and its structure to make it more transparent and allow other shareholders'. Those shareholders will be people who work for teyit.org, not investors. Our plan is making this change in 2019.
1b) We are gathering proposals from digital agencies to change the website. We will consider the feedback.
2b) All analysis have been checked by other editors. The decision to publish has been made by consensus, not by the majority of votes.
4a) Income from our partnership with Facebook has been indicated on the website.
Conclusion and recommendations

I believe the applicants showed a great progress compared to its first application I had assessed and provided a nearly perfect submission. I have only listed one partially compliant and even there I believe the issue is minor given the scope of explanation in general. So I recommend teyit.org to be accepted.
