Request for Mobile Signal Booster (Tri-band Repeater)Edit

Approved

I am a contributor in Bengali Wikisource, English Wikisource, Wikidata and Commons. I have contributed regularly for many years. But nowadays I am posted in some remote area with scant mobile signal. I have several projects in hand. Especially, I am engaged in creating items for all the parliamentary acts of India, President's acts, West Bengal acts, and later, British regime acts, in Wikidata. Also projects in Bengali and English Wikisource. But these days I am unable to work due to lack of internet.

So I am requesting for a mobile signal booster as under:

  1. Tri-band Repeater for GSM (900 MHZ), 3G (2100 MHZ), 4G (1800 MHZ), compatible especially for Airtel and Jio.
  2. Outdoor antenna unit
  3. Indoor antennas
  4. 10 Mtr co-axial cable and connectors

Thanking you,

  • Hello @Atudu, thanks for letting us know about this initiative. We feel it's an important event. We also congratulate you for successfully running it in the past. We believe that you are aware of and following Wikimedia Foundation's instruction related to on-ground/public Wiki-events until 15 September/until further notice. We have noted the specific requests you have made do not have any such components. Following these observations and your experience of successful running of this Wiki-event, the request is   Approved. We'll contact you with further details. Regards. --Nitesh (CIS-A2K) (talk) 08:19, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Hello, let me further explain the point on-ground/public Wiki-events guidelines mentioned above. You are aware that to ensure safety Wikimedia Foundation has instructed guidelines of not conducting any on-ground, in-person Wiki-events until 15 September/further notice. The request components you made above do not any such component. For a clearer understanding, we are asking one of the WLM core team members to confirm/acknowledge that the work-plan of WLM does not have any on-ground event and you are aware of and will the WMF instruction. --Tito (CIS-A2K) (talk) 04:20, 28 August 2020 (UTC)
  1. We confirm that, as organizers, we are not having any offwiki event related to WLM. All our activities, for which, we have requested for financial help like prize distribution and promotion of the event, will be done entirely online, just like previous years. As organizers, we have no plans to do any photo-walks, offline meetings, workshops etc.
  2. If you go to our user group page, you can find the red notice at the top, that we are not going to conduct any offline events until further notice. We were among the first affiliates who took such decision and announced. You can also notice, staying loyal to our decision, we have postponed all our ongoing offline projects. Even if some are not funded by WMF, we have decided to postpone them taking into consideration about the safety of the participants.
  3. If you check WLM event FAQ, we have also made it clear that this year, we are asking participants to upload old photographs taken by them previously, rather than go outside of their safe zones and take photographs. To avoid exposure from COVID-19 infection as much as possible, we are also discouraging participants to go out of their homes to take photographs.

In this regard, we assure you that WLM India organizing team has no intention to conduct any offline event. Our stand is loud and clear regarding this.

Now, coming to the promotion part of the event, we have prepared a short teaser video, which will be uploaded in our Youtube channel and Facebook page of the user group very soon. We request you to send the money to @Jayanta (CIS-A2K):, which you have decided to spend for the promotion before the event starts on 1st September, 2020. We will give him access to both our pages, so that he can promote from there accordingly. Please note, that due to the COVID-19 situation, this promotion is extremely important for us as without promotion, we may get less participation this year. We are sure that, it will be taken care of by CIS-A2K swiftly and efficiently as before. Regards, -- Atudu (talk) 06:37, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

Hello, @Nitesh (CIS-A2K): and @Tito (CIS-A2K):, We have already completed the process of sending Prize money, SWAG Material, Certificate etc. to the winners of WLM 2020 India. We Cordially thank CIS-A2K Team to give us strong support in this matter and we hope to have similar support from them in future. Thanks--Atudu (talk) 15:52, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

Gujarati Wikipedia editathon on Gujarati culture and civilisationEdit

Approved

Event detailsEdit

  • Language community and project : Gujarati Wikipedia
  • Community discussion (Village Pump link): Here
  • Start date of preparation: 22 October 2020
  • Start date of project: 15 November 2020
  • End date of project: 30 November 2020
  • End date of completion of the entire endeavor: 5 December 2020
  • Event page: This


DescriptionEdit

  • What are the Proposed activities?

Gujarati Wikipedia quite lacks content on Gujarati culture and civilisation, thus, it is necessary that articles related to it can be created as well updated. This includes but not limited to cuisine, dance, music, history, mythology, traditions, festivities etc. We have excluded literature along with politics and geography to keep this editathon focused mainly on culture and civilisation.

There are many cultural topics which are limited to only books and they don't have any online space. We aim to digitalise and put them under an open-source licence. Even on Gujarati Wikipedia, some pages related to these topics are outdated and of substandard quality. With this editathon, we wish to motivate editors to update them too.

  • What are the Expected impact?

Major ones:

New pages on Gujarati Wikipedia wherein some content will come first time on internet
Updation of existing articles.

Minor ones:

To decide a model for editathons which may be utilised in future to increase content of different topics in a similar way
Introduction of new editors on the platform due to editathon, outreaching common public from our social media accounts
Making traditionally written content availed on internet with due reference to the original source and by respecting the copyright
  • What is the Estimate budget (give it with a detailed break-up)?

Estimated budget total funding needed= Not more than 12,500

1st prize (3000 INR) worth Gift voucher

2nd prize (2500 INR) worth Gift voucher

3rd prize (2000 INR) worth Gift voucher

4th prize (1500 INR) worth Gift voucher

5th prize (1000 INR) worth Gift voucher

Gift vouchers to jury and other participants (which would not exceed more than 4): Not more than 2500 INR

Thus, total funding needed will not be more than 12,500 INR. If possible then please provide copies of certificates to participants.

ClarificationEdit

We have earlier decided time period of 1-15 November for editathon, but, due to overlapping of our proposed event with another similar event for Indic Wikisources, we have decided to shift our event 15 days later to make sure that editors' time can be dedicated on single event at a time. Apologising for causing inconvenience. --Brihaspati (talk) 04:29, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Report linkEdit

  • Here is the link of the report of this editathon. It was written in Gujarati. However, after using the Google Translate, we have found that it is showing erroneous numbers when translated to English. Thus, here is a short summary.
    1. A total of 7 members, who took a part in the editathon, have presented 155 articles from which 152 articles were considered eligible by the jury. Total 119 articles were created and 37 existing articles were expanded. Though 81 articles were the translations from English Wikipedia, 74 were the fresh articles created firstly on Gujarati Wikipedia only.
    2. User:Sushant savla was declared as the first winner, closely followed by User:VikramVajir and User:Vijay Barot in the order. User:Brihaspati was the fourth winner whereas User:Kalpgna was the fifth one. User:Gazal world would get a condolence prize and User:KartikMistry would get a gift voucher for the jury. I have tried contacting Nitesh regarding the prize distribution i.e. Amazon vouchers but I wasn't succeeded in contacting.
    3. We need six certificates for the participants, one for the organiser and one for the jury.
    4. I, on the behalf of Gujarati Wiki community, am thankful to the CIS-A2K for humble support and assistance. We may organise forthcoming editathons on this model. --Brihaspati (talk) 15:54, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

বাংলা উইকিপিডিয়ার ফেসবুক পাতার পরিচালকের কয়েকজনের মধ্যে আমিও রয়েছি। গত বছর ডিসেম্বরের দিকে আমি ফেসবুকের কাছ থেকে একটি বিজ্ঞপ্তি পাই যে "বিজ্ঞাপন দেয়ার জন্য আপনার অ্যাকাউন্টে আমরা ৫ ইউরো দিয়েছি"। তো আমি এটি দেখে ঐ অর্থ দিয়ে একটি বিজ্ঞাপন দেই, বিজ্ঞাপন দেয়ার সময় আমি অতিরিক্ত অর্থ পরিশোধের কিছু দেখতে পাইনি। কিন্তু ঠিক এক মাস পর ফেসবুক আমাকে ৪.৯৯ ইউরো বকেয়া রয়েছে বলা শুরু করে। আমি যখন ঐ ৫ ইউরো খরচ করে বিজ্ঞাপন দিচ্ছিলাম, তারা এই ৪.৯৯ ইউরোর বিষয় সম্পূর্ণ লুকিয়ে রেখেছিল।

আমি গত কয়েক মাস ধরে এই বকেয়া উপেক্ষা করে আসছিলাম। তবে আমি আজ এই বকেয়া নিজের টাকা দিয়ে পরিশোধ করছি। যেহেতু আমাদের ফেসবুক পাতাটি যাছাইকৃত ও এটি ৭০ হাজারের বেশীজন "পছন্দ" করেছেন, তাই আমার এই বকেয়ার সূত্র ধরে যেন আমাদের ফেসবুক পাতায় কোন সমস্যা না হয় তার জন্য দিয়েছি। বিজ্ঞাপন ও অর্থ পরিশোধের ছবি

আমি খুব খুশি হব যদি CIS-A2K আমাকে এই অর্থ (৪.৯৯ ইউরো বা তার সমান রুপি) দেয়। পেপ্যাল বা আমাজন.ইন গিফট কার্ড দিলেও আমার সমস্যা নেই। --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 20:29, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

  • We would require you to support the remuneration of a program person for 6 months, who would be managed by Telugu Wikipedia community.
  • A Good, Working laptop for the employee and a small amount towards local travel.
  • Some Software purchases only if no free and open source alternative can do better job.

We would update this section later with specific amounts as and when plan progresses concretely.

DiscussionEdit

Hello Pavan santhosh.s, thanks for the request on behalf of the community. This request is different than we generally get on this request page. We would like to brainstorm on this. Every year we begin one-or-two new large-collaboration with communities. In 2021, after we develop a plan, this might become one such collaboration.

Note: A call took place among A2K and Telugu Wikimedians before the Christmas, 2020, and they were requested to put this on the request page as an initial point of documentation. Thanks for working on it.

Next steps: Let's further prepare the protocol for better understanding. The discussion summary can be noted here. --Tito (CIS-A2K) (talk) 10:32, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

Update: As per the discussions with CIS-A2K staff and protocol prepared, a project page created in Telugu Wikipedia, 3-members committee formed to work on this project further on volunteer basis and a position to work full time on this project got opened. All of these were announced on Telugu Wikipedia Village pump. --Pavan santhosh.s (talk) 06:11, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
