Contribute to Wikipedia in your language campaign
This experiment was inspired by this Wikimania session in 2021.
One of the challenges facing small language Wikipedia is low contributions by native speakers. Most of the contents on small languages Wikipedia are either written by bots or non-native speakers who sometimes use Google translator or similar machines to translate contents on these languages Wikipedia. These cause severe damage to the quality and credibility of these languages Wikipedia. Readers don't have access to basic articles in their native languages since most of the contents are poor in quality.
The scope of this project focus on using the Central Notice banner to recruit volunteers for small language Wikipedia and we want to experiment with the Yoruba language Wikipedia.
We will host a central notice banner on large language Wikipedia that are often visited from Nigeria, and a simple form will be attached to the banner and Wikipedia readers from Nigeria who are native speakers of Yoruba Language will be asked to complete the form and participate in a training on how to contribute to the Yoruba language Wikipedia.
The Central Notice Banner will only be visible to visitors who are not registered on any Wikimedia project.
Wikipedia exists in Yoruba language. If you speak the language, please help us improve it. Register for Yoruba Wikipedia training using this form.
