Wiki Education is hiring an experienced Wikipedian for a part-time (20 hours/week) position. The focus of this position is to help new editors (students and other academics) learn to edit Wikipedia. The main focus of the position is monitoring and tracking contributions by Wiki Education program participants, answering questions, and providing feedback. We're looking for a friendly, helpful editor who like to focus on article content, but also with a deep knowledge of policies and guidelines and the ability to explain them in simple, concise ways to new editors. They will be the third member of a team of expert Wikipedians, joining Ian (Wiki Ed) and Shalor (Wiki Ed). This is a part-time, U.S. based, remote or San Francisco based position.

Maratha reservation movement[edit]

As of now, this deserves an article (passes GNG). The movement has been going on for around five years: plenty of sources. Also, other documented requests redates the events of Maratha Kranti Morcha. I have created a rudimentary draft, and added some sources at Draft talk:Maratha Aarakshan movement#Usable sources. But unfortunately I dont have much experience with creating such articles. Would somebody help me please? But I can work on it with help/collaboration. Also, I can bring in the relevant sources from last 10 years easily.

Once the article is in mainspace/listed by search engines, a lot more people would add to it; and I will handle the issues of POV, adding sources, and other stuff including gnoming. All I need is help in the beginning. Also, I request to continue the discussion on Draft talk:Maratha Aarakshan movement, as I have posted this message to 3-4 different, but mostly inactive, venues. Thanks a lot in advance, —usernamekiran(talk) 19:15, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi Usernamekiran, Thanks for your note. If I understand correctly, you are seeking collaborators to help you write such an article. Is that right? (As an editor who has been on Wikipedia for six years, I'm guessing you're not asking for technical assistance.) Regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 19:59, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
@DASonnenfeld: Hi, thanks for the reply. yes, I am asking for collaboration. If the draft gets in "post rudimentary" state, I can do most of the work. Its just the beginning stuff that I am stuck on. —usernamekiran(talk) 20:37, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
@Usernamekiran: Thanks for the clarification -- and good luck! Regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 20:44, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
