Need pointers to help contribute to wikipedia[edit]

Below I asked about definitions of wiktionary belows, now I have free time and would like to help contribute however I can, can you point me to the users you mentioned and I'll ask further from them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by VultureV1 (talkcontribs) 10:18, 25 May 2018 (UTC)


A question regarding sanskirt wikitionary definitions[edit]

Why are Sanskrit wikitionary definitions so incomprehensive?

The page doesn't even show all the verb forms, let alone participals. The noun forms are alright but there are lots of pages that simply don't exist (marked in red) and have pages that go nowhere. Hell, some words arent even defined. For the Latin definitions on the other hand, a page exists for every single noun and verb form (which is a great convince for learners). What is the matter here, is there some technical difficulty with the dictionary sources or just lack of community involvement? — Preceding unsigned comment added by VultureV1 (talkcontribs) 09:58, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

@VultureV1: There are only 3 people with any interest in Sanskrit at Wiktionary. Only one (not me) knows any Lua, so the onus comes on them to implement the conjugation and declension tables sadly. Latin has dozens of Wiktionary editors and several bots. Latin has more focus since almost all Latin learners know English, whereas most Sanskrit learners and acharyas only speak an Indian languages at a native level. Naturally, they will not contribute to the English Wiktionary. Finally, all the inflected forms are made by bots, and as of now no bots have been running to add such entries for Sanskrit.

Sind Province (1936-47)[edit]

Hi, i see you quickly reverted an edit that I made at Sind Province (1936-47), which was fine to do. I was myself just checking the edit and was figuring out that the links I put in were not correct, in fact needed to be changed, and was proceeding with that. You were right to indicate it was not correct, thanks. However, now I see that the whole new article is a duplicate of Sind Province (1936–55), an article which existed since 2002. So, the current article should be redirected, and any different new content should be merged. Do you want to do the redirecting and merging? To implement the redirect, you just erase the current content and replace it with #REDIRECT [[Sind Province (1936–55)]] cheers, --doncram 13:11, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

I was hoping that Sind Province (1936-55) could be split, but there seems to be no support. I suppose I'll do that. Aryamanaroratalk, contribs 15:11, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
I see you did the redirect, good. In the 1936-55 article, there is only one sentence in section Sind Province (1936-55)#1936–1947, so it doesn't look like it needs to be split out. You could develop that section with whatever you were intending to put into a separate article. And eventually ask for support in splitting, if you still think that would be good, at its Talk page.
By the way, i edited the 1936-55 article's mention of adjacent princely states and provinces. This included fixing wikilinks and also adding provinces that were not mentioned before. And I reorganized it to mention them in clockwise order. There are some simplifications, e.g. that West Punjab was a province during only 1947-1955, which I was mentioning in one version but took out. Sind was in fact bordered by West Punjabe, at least for some of the larger date range. I think it it is narrated accurately now but I'd be very happy if you would check and refine it if necessary. It's the section Sind Province (1936–55)#Location. Thanks, --doncram 20:40, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Jan Michał Rozwadowski[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Jan Michał Rozwadowski has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 5[edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg
Newsletter • October 2015

Hello there! Happy to be writing this newsletter once more. This month:

We did it!

In July, we launched five pilot WikiProjects: WikiProjects Cannabis, Evolutionary Biology, Ghana, Hampshire, and Women's Health. We also use the new design, named "WPX UI," on WikiProject Women in Technology, Women in Red, WikiProject Occupational Safety and Health. We are currently looking for projects for the next round of testing. If you are interested, please sign up on the Pilots page.

Shortly after our launch we presented at Wikimania 2015. Our slides are on Wikimedia Commons.

Then after all that work, we went through the process of figuring out whether we accomplished our goal. We reached out to participants on the redesigned WikiProjects, and we asked them to complete a survey. (If you filled out your survey—thank you!) While there are still some issues with the WikiProject tools and the new design, there appears to be general satisfaction (at least among those who responded). The results of the survey and more are documented in our grant report filed with the Wikimedia Foundation.

The work continues!

There is more work that needs to be done, so we have applied for a renewal of our grant. Comments on the proposal are welcome. We would like to improve what we have already started on the English Wikipedia and to also expand to Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata. Why those? Because they are multilingual projects and because there needs to be better coordination across Wikimedia projects. More details are available in the renewal proposal.

How can the Wikimedia Foundation support WikiProjects?

The Wikimedia Developer Summit will be held in San Francisco in January 2016. The recently established Community Tech team at the Wikimedia Foundation is interested in investigating what technical support they can provide for WikiProjects, i.e., support beyond just templates and bots. I have plenty of opinions myself, but I want to hear what you think. The session is being planned on Phabricator, the Wikimedia bug tracker. If you are not familiar with Phabricator, you can log in with your Wikipedia username and password through the "Login or Register: MediaWiki" button on the login page. Your feedback can help make editing Wikipedia a better experience.

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 6[edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg
Newsletter • January 2016

Hello there! Happy to be writing this newsletter once more. This month:

What comes next

Some good news: the Wikimedia Foundation has renewed WikiProject X. This means we can continue focusing on making WikiProjects better.

During our first round of work, we created a prototype WikiProject based on two ideas: (1) WikiProjects should clearly present things for people to do, and (2) The content of WikiProjects should be automated as much as possible. We launched pilots, and for the most part it works. But this approach will not work for the long term. While it makes certain aspects of running a WikiProject easier, it makes the maintenance aspects harder.

We are working on a major overhaul that will address these issues. New features will include:

  • Creating WikiProjects by simply filling out a form, choosing which reports you want to generate for your project. This will work with existing bots in addition to the Reports Bot reports. (Of course, you can also have sections curated by humans.)
  • One-click button to join a WikiProject, with optional notifications.
  • Be able to define your WikiProject's scope within the WikiProject itself by listing relevant pages and categories, eliminating the need to tag every talk page with a banner. (You will still be allowed to do that, of course. It just won't be required.)

The end goal is a collaboration tool that can be used by WikiProjects but also by any edit-a-thon or group of people that want to coordinate on improving articles. Though implemented as an extension, the underlying content will be wikitext, meaning that you can continue to use categories, templates, and other features as you normally would.

This will take a lot of work, and we are just getting started. What would you like to see? I invite you to discuss on our talk page.


Until next time,

Harej (talk) 02:53, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 7[edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg
Newsletter • February 2016

This month:

One database for Wikipedia requests

Development of the extension for setting up WikiProjects, as described in the last issue of this newsletter, is currently underway. No terribly exciting news on this front.

In the meantime, we are working on a prototype for a new service we hope to announce soon. The problem: there are requests scattered all across Wikipedia, including requests for new articles and requests for improvements to existing articles. We Wikipedians are very good at coming up with lists of things to do. But once we write these lists, where do they end up? How can we make them useful for all editors—even those who do not browse the missing articles lists, or the particular WikiProjects that have lists?

Introducing Wikipedia Requests, a new tool to centralize the various lists of requests around Wikipedia. Requests will be tagged by category and WikiProject, making it easier to find requests based on what your interests are. Accompanying this service will be a bot that will let you generate reports from this database on any wiki page, including WikiProjects. This means that once a request is filed centrally, it can syndicated all throughout Wikipedia, and once it is fulfilled, it will be marked as "complete" throughout Wikipedia. The idea for this service came about when I saw that it was easy to put together to-do lists based on database queries, but it was harder to do this for human-generated requests when those requests are scattered throughout the wiki, siloed throughout several pages. This should especially be useful for WikiProjects that have overlapping interests.

The newsletter this month is fairly brief; not a lot of news, just checking in to say that we are hard at work and hope to have more for you soon.

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 8[edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg
Newsletter • March / April 2016

This month:

Transclude article requests anywhere on Wikipedia

In the last issue of the WikiProject X Newsletter, I discussed the upcoming Wikipedia Requests system: a central database for outstanding work on Wikipedia. I am pleased to announce Wikipedia Requests is live! Its purpose is to supplement automatically generated lists, such as those from SuggestBot, Reports bot, or Wikidata. It is currently being demonstrated on WikiProject Occupational Safety and Health (which I work on as part of my NIOSH duties) and WikiProject Women scientists.

Adding a request is as simple as filling out a form. Just go to the Add form to add your request. Adding sources will help ensure that your request is fulfilled more quickly. And when a request is fulfilled, simply click "mark as complete" and it will be removed from all the lists it's on. All at the click of a button! (If anyone is concerned, all actions are logged.)

With this new service is a template to transclude these requests: {{Wikipedia Requests}}. It's simple to use: add the template to a page, specifying article=, category=, or wikiproject=, and the list will be transcluded. For example, for requests having to do with all living people, just do {{Wikipedia Requests|category=Living people}}. Use these lists on WikiProjects but also for edit-a-thons where you want a convenient list of things to do on hand. Give it a shot!

Help us build our list!

The value of Wikipedia Requests comes from being a centralized database. The long work to migrating individual lists into this combined list is slowly underway. As of writing, we have 883 open tasks logged in Wikipedia Requests. We need your help building this list.

If you know of a list of missing articles, or of outstanding tasks for existing articles, that you would like to migrate to this new system, head on over to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Requests#Transition project and help out. Doing this will help put your list in front of more eyes—more than just your own WikiProject.

An open database means new tools

WikiProject X maintains a database that associates article talk pages (and draft talk pages) with WikiProjects. This database powers many of the reports that Reports bot generates. However, until very recently, this database was not made available to others who might find its data useful. It's only common sense to open up the database and let others build tools with it.

And indeed: Citation Hunt, the game to add citations to Wikipedia, now lets you filter by WikiProject, using the data from our database.

Are you a tool developer interested in using this? Here are some details: the database resides on Tool Labs with the name s52475__wpx_p. The table that associates WikiProjects with articles and drafts is called projectindex. Pages are stored by talk page title but in the future this should change. Have fun!

On the horizon
  • The work on the CollaborationKit extension continues. The extension will initially focus on reducing template and Lua bloat on WikiProjects (especially our WPX UI demonstration projects), and will from there create custom interfaces for creating and maintaining WikiProjects.
  • The WikiCite meeting will be in Berlin in May. The goal of the meeting is to figure out how to build a bibliographic database for use on the Wikimedia projects. This fits in quite nicely with WikiProject X's work: we want to make it easier for people to find things to work on, and with a powerful, open bibliographic database, we can build recommendations for sources. This feature was requested by the Wikipedia Library back in September, and this meeting is a major next step. We look forward to seeing what comes out of this meeting.

Proposed deletion of List of most viewed Indian music videos[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of most viewed Indian music videos has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Topic of debatable notability. Sourcing is only (and possibly only can be) to the videos themselves on YouTube, which is usually not a good idea.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Supporting Indian Wikipedia Program resource distribution[edit]

In 2017 - 2018, the Wikimedia Foundation and Google working in close coordination with the Centre for Internet and Society (CIS), Wikimedia India chapter (WMIN) and user groups will pilot a program encouraging Wikipedia communities to create locally relevant and high-quality content in Indian languages. This program (Code name: Project Tiger) will:

(a) Support active and experienced Wikipedia editors through the donation of laptops and stipends for internet access and
(b) Sponsor a language-based contest that aims to address existing Wikipedia content gaps.

The objective of the program is to provide laptops and internet stipends for existing editors who need support to contribute more actively. 50 basic model Acer Chromebooks and Internet stipends for 100 contributors are available for distribution. Provided resources are the sole property of the beneficiaries and should be used for the betterment of the movement.

If you're an active Wikimedian, and interested to receive support from this project, please apply. It will take around 10 minutes of your time, and will ask descriptive questions about your contribution to Indic Wikimedia projects.

Etymology of sitar/setar[edit]

Hi Aryaman, I hope you don't mind me talking here to curb mass editing on Wiktionary which means I may not edit very often for some time. So, with the word sitar, the etymology over there says it's from Persian. However, another word setar exists which more represents the Persian terms. Isn't sitar sound more like it's from Hindustani and then Persian, and if yes, can you fix it there? — they call me AWESOMEmeeos ... [ˈɔɪ̯]! 23:49, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

@Awesomemeeos: Yes, sitar is indeed from Hindi-Urdu, but the word in Hindi-Urdu is further borrowed from Persian. The pronunciation in Hindi-Urdu reflects the pronunciation in early Dari (or, depending on the time frame, even Classical Persian) because most Persian-speaking invaders entered the Indian river basins by way of mountain passes in through Afghanistan, historically. Iranian Persian, which is used in our transliteration of Persian, has diverged greatly from Classical Persian and modern Dari. AryamanA (talk, contribs) 00:38, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
Nice further notes there. Thanks for that! — they call me AWESOMEmeeos ... [ˈɔɪ̯]! 06:00, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 13[edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg
Newsletter • December 2018

This month: A general update.

The current status of the project is as follows:

  • Progress of the project has been generally delayed since September due to development issues (more bitrot than expected, some of the code just being genuinely confusing, etc) and personal injury (I suffered a concussion in October and was out of commission for almost two months as a result).
  • I currently expect to be putting out a proper call for CollaborationKit pilots in January/February, with estimated deployment in February/March if things don't go horribly wrong (they will, though, don't worry). As a part of that, I will properly update the page and send out announcement and reach out to all projects already signed up as pilots for WikiProject X in general, at which point those (still) interested can volunteer specifically to test the CollaborationKit extension.
    • Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Pilots was originally created for the first WikiProject X prototype, and given this is where the project has since gone, it's only logical to continue to use it. While I haven't yet updated the page to properly reflect this:
    • If you want to add your project to this page now, feel free. Just bear in mind that more information what to actually expect will be added later/included in the announcement, because by then I will have a much better idea myself.
  • Until then, you can find me in my corner working on making the CollaborationKit code do what we want and not just what we told it, per the workboard.

Until next time,

-— Isarra 22:44, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
