Indian collaborationEdit

Hi Arunram! I see you (just like me) are interested in an Indian Collaboration of the week. I have already started a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Indian wikipedians' notice board. Feel free to air your views. There are many active Indians now, and we can start an Indian collaboration in a month or so, if they are interested. utcursch 07:34, Dec 30, 2004 (UTC)

Hi! I thought I'd ask you some things about INCOTW:

  • The section under Pruning says that a nomination needs 3 votes in 7 days, 6 votes in 14 days etc. The template at the bottom to nominate new articles however says it needs 5 votes in 7 days etc. Which is the correct figure?
  • When is the update cycle carried out? You added the INCOTW notice to Himalaya on Feb 08 2005, but the INCOTW page mentions that all vote tallies and nomination updates are done on Sundays. Should we treat Himalaya as a special case and give it an extra few days, or should we change Sundays to Tuesdays?
  • If a nomination fails to get its required votes, should it be immediately removed or should it wait until the next voting cycle (ie, the Sunday or Tuesday)? What is the recommended practice in updating INCOTW? Can anyone make edits to the page (like moving articles to /Removed etc)?

Thanks. -- Brhaspati 23:25, 2005 Feb 13 (UTC)

Ouch! I notice you added the Wikistress image recently. I hope I didn't have anything to do with it! Anyway, I thought a bit about the points I raised, and I'd like your opinion on the following:
  • A nomination needs 5 votes in the first week, and 3 additional votes every additional week to stay in the list.
  • Nominations that fail the criteria for two consecutive weeks may be removed.
  • All numbers and dates in the "needs X votes by date Y" message should be updated (if necessary) by anyone who votes for that nomination. (You don't have to vote in order to update the figures, but if you vote, you must check the dates and update if needed).
Thanks, and stay cool! -- Brhaspati 00:31, 2005 Feb 16 (UTC)

Project IndiaEdit

I'm sorry but it wont be possible this week as I have prior commitments. Go ahead with the project if you have to. Although I will be online, I will be free on Jan 31, and may take part if it is still running then. Till then best of luck with the project. PS. I saw that you watch Bangalore. I have just completed the Gangtok page, I think it would be great if you could update the infobox like I have done to Gangtok. Nichalp 10:05, Jan 21, 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia Asian Month 2017: Invitation to ParticipateEdit

Hello! Last year, you signed up to participate in Wikipedia Asian Month (WAM) 2016 on the English Wikipedia. The event was an international success, with hundreds of editors creating thousands of articles on Asian topics across dozens of different language versions of Wikipedia.

I'd like to invite you to join us for Wikipedia Asian Month 2017, which once again lasts through the month of November. The goal is for users to create new articles on Asian-related content, each at least 3,000 bytes and 300 words in length. Editors who create at least four articles will receive a Wikipedia Asian Month postcard!

Also be sure to check out the Wikipedia Asian Art Month affiliate event - creating articles on Asian art topics can get you a Metropolitan Museum of Art postcard!

If you're interested, please sign up here for the English Wikipedia. If you are interested in also working on other language editions of Wikipedia, please visit the meta page to see other participating projects. If you have any questions, please visit our talk page.

Thank you!

Other news

June election: Jonesey95 was chosen to continue as lead coordinator, assisted by Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.

New maintenance template added to our project scope: After a short discussion in June, we added {{cleanup tense}} to the list of maintenance templates that adds articles to the Guild's copy editing backlog categories. This change added 198 articles, spread over 97 months of backlog, to our queue. We processed all of those articles except for those from the three or four most recent months during the July backlog elimination drive (Here's a link to a "tense" discussion during the drive).

Progress report: As of 18:26, 24 September 2021 (UTC), GOCE copyeditors have processed 468 requests since 1 January and there were 60 requests awaiting completion on the Requests page. The backlog of articles tagged for copy-editing stood at 433 (see monthly progress graph above).

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.
