  • RU: Стартует конкурс «Останься дома с Википедией» на темы, связанные с пандемией COVID-19 и со всем тем, что она приносит в нашу жизнь уже сейчас, принесёт в ближайшее время и, кто знает, в дальнейшей перспективе. Конкурс не совсем обычный, в его организации и, конечно, в участии в нём хотелось бы видеть акт социальной ответственности википедиста. Впрочем, всё подробно расписано на странице конкурса, куда вас, коллеги, и приглашаю. Конкурс продлится от 1 до 2 месяцев, в зависимости от обстоятельств. Очень важно, чтобы эта непростая тема была освещена в Википедии грамотно, достоверно, без «вбросов» и искажений. Поэтому помимо жюри, оценивающего статьи на соответствие формальным критериям проекта, нам нужны эксперты. Это могут быть специалисты как из числа википедистов, так и профессионалы, не являющиеся активистами Викимедиа. Готовы рассмотреть предложения о сотрудничестве и партнёрстве в рамках этого проекта, и конечно, нам потребуется максимальная информационная поддержка. Приходите на страницу Конкурса и — оставайтесь дома с Википедией. От имени Викимедиа РУ и от себя лично. Баннер: Коллеги, мы предложили баннер конкурса через CentralNotice. Прошу высказываться.
  • EN: The Stay at home with Wikipedia contest is launched on topics related to the COVID-19 pandemic and everything that it brings to our lives right now, will bring in the near future and, who knows, in the far future. The competition is not quite ordinary. We would like to see an act of social responsibility in its organization and, of course, in participating in it. However, everything is described in detail on the competition page, where I invite you now, colleagues. The competition will last from 1 to 2 months, depending on the circumstances. It is very important that this difficult topic be covered in Wikipedia correctly, reliably, without “stuffing” and distortion. Therefore, in addition to the jury evaluating the articles for compliance with the formal criteria of the project, we need experts as well. They may be specialists among Wikipediaeditors or professionals who are not Wikimedia activists. We are ready to consider proposals for cooperation and partnership in this project, and of course, we need maximum information support. Come to the page of the Competition and - stay home with Wikipedia. On behalf of Wikimedia RU and on my own behalf. 'Banner:' Colleagues, we proposed a competition banner through CentralNotice. We're asking for your support.



  •   Support - this is a part of Wikimedia's large and important campaign to educate readers about COVID-19. --Dmitry Rozhkov (talk) 15:36, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support - I think it's important to provide precise and scientifically correct information regarding everything related to the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak. Also, I hope this contest will stimulate some to stay home and so keep some lifes. (Disclaimer: I'm a coorganizer of the contest.) Dr Bug (Vladimir V. Medeyko) 18:58, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
