One of the letters in the Dewantara Kirti Griya Museum, Yogyakarta

With the objective of increasing the cultural and historical contents of Indonesia, Wikimedia Indonesia partnered to digitize the collection of letters of Dutch colonialization era from the Dewantara Kirti Griya Museum (Special Region of Yogyakarta Province) and Kajawen Magazine from the collection of Yayasan Sastra Lestari (Central Java Province). The collections are available under the free license and can be accessed via Wikimedia Commons.

This project was running between March 13, 2017, to March 12, 2018. In the first two months, the association and the institutions held several internal meetings to discuss with materials is to be rolled out first for scanning. Later, a memorandum signed by each party and the activity started afterward.

During the project, 981 pages of letters have been scanned and saved in PDF format. There are 330 pages of letters are in the Dutch language. A hundred editions of Kajawen Magazine has been scanned and saved in PDF as well. The collections can be found in Wikimedia Commons under Category:Letters from Tamansiswa Dewantara Kirti Griya Museum library and Category:Majalah Kajawen respectively.

To make use of the letters, Wikimedia Indonesia and Wikimedia Netherlands partnered to transcribe those letters in the Dutch Wikisource. Until the end of the project (March 12, 2018), there were 154 pages have been transcribed and summarized on this page. Besides the transcription, the letters were translated into Bahasa Indonesia, as well, in the amount of 250 pages, instead of 330 pages, due to the lack of time for the translator to complete his translation.

Wikimedia Indonesia held two times of Wikisource training: one in Yogyakarta and one in Jakarta.

Lesson learned
  • During the project, the hurdle faced was to socialize the objectives and benefits derived from the project to the targeted audiences. Creative Commons licenses which provide discretion for the copyright holder must be submitted correctly and easily understood by the audiences in order to avoid misinterpretation and raise the notion that this license removes the copyright of the work of the original copyright holder. The straightforward explanation was necessary to avoid raising the notion that the results of digitalization disseminated to the internet will be commercialized. From one side, the assumption is true, but on the other hand, such commercialization actions can be minimized by the availability of the same material/content that can be used freely and for free instead of using the commercial content.
  • The digitization of Kajawen Magazine was facing the difficulty in the third quarter (September to December 2017). It was a disruption to the scanner machine in Surakarta. Some of the problems that arise such as (1) the results of the camera portrait is unclear, (2) excessive lights that result in reducing the visibility of the photo, and (3) some edition of Kajawen Magazine's metadata was not available on sastra.org, thus requiring the Javanese language expert to read the Hanacaraka script from the magazine to extract the metadata.

Wiki Mrebawani II is a continuation of the Wiki Mrebawani (2015–16) which aims at increasing the number of active editors in the Javanese Wikipedia, and through that also aims at building the Javanese Wikipedia community and preserving the Javanese language. The rule of the competition is creating articles as many as possible, in which committee decides if the articles are accepted based on the established standard, and the judges will assess the quality of samples of the created articles. The rule is a simplification of the previous Wiki Mrebawani rules, which went through major changes during the course of the competition. The competition is held in two terms: the first was started at April 15th, 2017 and ended at September 14th, 2017, the second was started at September 23rd, 2017 and ended at February 23rd, 2018. In each term, a winner was announced.

Since mid-April to mid-September, also called the first term, 35 people registered the competition, 8 participated in editing, and 460 articles were created for the competition. The participants made 546 articles, edited 1,150 articles with more than 1,950 total edits during the competition. Several parties had been outreached such as Javanese Diaspora Network, a Javanese community with members from around the world, and Komunitas Jogja Peduli, a group for Yogyakarta local communities that concerns on education issues. The Javanese Wikipedia and a new way of preserving Javanese through encyclopedic writing were introduced to them. Besides the competition, a total of 3 (three) Wikipedia training have also been held to encourage more people in editing the Javanese Wikipedia and to improve skills in Wikipedia editing. From the training, we have got 16 participants joining with a total of 74 edits made.

During the first term, the number of Javanese Wikipedia’s articles was finally reaching 50,000 and featured in a local newspaper. We also open a community space in Yogyakarta.

Partnered with Radya Pustaka Museum in Surakarta, Wikimedia Indonesia held the announcement and closure of the first term of Wiki Mrebawani II at the museum’s hall at September 17th, 2017. The winner of the first term of Wiki Mrebawani II is Igho with score 79,1 of 100 based on article's quality (40%), quantity (40%), and presentation (20%) aspects. Igho is previously an active Indonesian Wikipedia user and now also active in the Javanese Wikipedia during and after the competition. The closing ceremony is featured in Suara Merdeka, a national newspaper based in Semarang.

The second term was followed by 60 participants, with 16 of whom were active editors. Articles created during the second term were 1,824 or around four times the number of the first term. The closure of the second term was held at Data Building, Tamansiswa Complex in Yogyakarta. Ganyong was declared as the winner of the second term by scoring 88,4 of 100. The second term was covered by Jaya Baya and Djaka Lodang (magazines), and Republika (newspapers).

During one-year Wiki Mrebawani II, the committee members also held 11 Wikipedia editing workshops named WikiLatih Jawa in several cities in Java: Yogyakarta (5 times), Surakarta (2 times), Salatiga (once), Semarang (once), Cirebon (once), and Surabaya (once). Most of these workshops were to train participants of Wiki Mrebawani on editing Wikipedia.

Lesson learned
  • During first term, many participants submitted their articles in the last day, so the committe need to do extra work. In the second term, The committe already tried to remind the participants, but that's still happened.
  • For several years, Javanese community was growing so slow, buat because they have community space now, they have place to gather and can coordinate better. This is part of communal culture of Javanese people
Post-activities and follow-up
  • Javanese community decided to do more WikiLatih for next grants and finding new potential partners, especially educational institution

Sundanese poster competition

Wiki Sabanda II is a multilevel system competition, which means a participant should finish one level to continue to the next level. The project was improved and its rules based on the lesson learned from previous competition. The competition is held in two terms: the first was started at April 15th, 2017 and ended at September 14th, 2017, the second is going to start at September 23rd, 2017 and to end at February 22nd, 2018. In each term, a winner was announced.

In the first term, 47 registered participants and only 5 people who participated in competition by claim its articles. There are 253 articles edited (including 148 new articles for competition), and total 1,690 total edits. Beside the competition, we did WikiTraining to Sundanese community for the first time, there are 2 participants with 6 new articles, 10 edited articles and 36 total edits. Promotional activities have been conducted, both online and offline. We collaborated with promoted literary community "Malam Puisi Bandung" and aggreed to promote via their on-air radio program and also social media. We also had meeting with Library and Archive Department, West Java and Reading Community Club (Taman Baca Masyarakat) Sukamulya in Bandung to know and explore more with Wikimedia projects, especially Wikipedia. In this first period selected one person champion of Wiki Sabanda II that is Dinototosugiarto with the score 64 of 100.

Wiki Sabanda II second term started on September 22, 2017. The competition was announced online (via social media) and offline (by visiting educational institutions and spread the competition via poster). There are 70 participants registered in this term: one of them was previously registered to this competition, 61 persons were new users, and 8 persons were registered but did not continue to create their Wikipedia account. Among the 70 participants, only 9 persons were actively writing in Sundanese Wikipedia. To attract more participants from the previous term, the committee decided that participants from the previous term can automatically be the participants in the second term and also collaborated with Sundanese Education, Faculty of Language and Literature Education, Indonesia University of Education.

There are 50 articles claimed by the participants to be scored, although there are 199 articles created. Wiki Sabanda II second term closed officially on December 31, 2017. Setia Muhammad Fauzi won the first place, and Zaenal Abidin won the second place. See the jury's score sheet here.

Wiki Sabanda II conducted 10 days Sundanese editathons during the second term, participated by 131 persons in total.

  • First training was held at SMK Informatika Terpadu on October 19-20, 2017, with the participation of 15 persons
  • Second training was held at SMK Farmasi Bakti on October 19-20, 2017, with the participation of 55 persons and writing pharmacy articles
  • Third training was held in Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia on October 27, 2017, with the participation of 15 persons
  • Fourth training was held at SMA Negeri 1 Cisarua on December 12, 2017, with the participation of 12 persons

Later, the committee decided to alter the competition design by joining an event conducted by Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia to attract university students in the competition. The committee conducted two pieces of training:

  • First training conducted on January 18-19, 2018 in Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia and participated by 20 participants in total
  • Second training conducted on February 1-2, 2018 in the same place and participated by 7 participants each day
Lesson learned
  • During the training session, most of the presentation and speech did not deliver entirely due to lack of time. There should be more time to deliver the presentation (more than 4-hour duration of the training).
  • All training participants should be forced to bring computers with them to avoid idling during the training session.
  • There was difficult to gather Sundanese Wikipedia community due to working time and regional disparity, thus it is better to have more than three committee living the same city or living in the nearby at least.
Post-activities and follow-up
  • Sundanese community plan to do meet up and WikiLatih, so the community is not gone after the competition.

Wiki Loves Indonesia 2017 is our first project with photo contest via Wikimedia Commons. Before the contest, we prepared some communication strategies to help us to track down our progress and also to make the competition is well-prepared. We made:

  1. Website via Github,
  2. Poster
  3. WLE and Wikimedia Commons booklet
  4. Campaign upload page, before the event, one of the committe was contacted by Romaine to make Central Notice also campaign upload page. The central notice banner was availaible in Indonesia area and has bilingual banner, Indonesian and English.
  5. We also collaborated with Mozzilla Space Jakarta and also Creative Commons Indonesia to hold a workshop event for WLE Indonesia.
WLE ID 2017 Commons Category

There is 626 participants and 598 (95%) of them are new users; or, there's 630 participants accordi tong this tool, it's likely the user upload after the competition or another user who helped to reupload the picture, e.g. Embedded Data Bot.

There's 3,108 images from Wiki Loves Tools. Wikimedia Commons Category's Images from Wiki Loves Earth 2017 in Indonesia has 3,177 imagess. In campaign page has 2,302 uploaded files. This gap is happened becau ofse some reasons. At first, the committe already prepared the FAQ in bit.ly/wcai2017. So, several participants uploaded directly in this category "Wiki Cinta Alam Indonesia 2017", after we had the campaign page, we changed the FAQ and most of the participants uploaded via campaign page. Also, there are some participants who uploaded in Wiki Loves Earth 2017 in Indonesia. Finally, the committe curated the picture and added all of the images under the same category "Images from Wiki Loves Earth 2017 in Indonesia", so we've got 3,177 images.

WLE Indonesia 2017 Province Coverage, 25 provinces out of 34
Lesson learned
  • For the next competition, we should have a registration form, as we've got 626 with and planned to send merchandise to top 200, but we couldn't reach all of them, because they didn't provide the-mail address when they registered to Wikimedia Commons. We've been trying to contact them via their talk page, social media (some of the participants are using their real name, so it can easily be identified) and any possible channel, but the success rate is only 31.5%. Per March 12, 2018, we've sent to 63 participants out of 200, 2 of them are top 10.
  • The WLE tools and some tools need to have a fixed date option. It affected our metrics report as it changed too if Commons data's changed.
Post-activities and follow-up
  • Some participants are still upload their picture in Wikimedia Commons, now we have more 4,005 pictures per 11 April 2018.
  • We plan to have more offline outreach events, so we can reach more broader participants and also educate them about Wikimedia Commons and Creative Commons and they can fully understand how useful the free license is.
The participants of the Partnership workshop.

Wikimedia Indonesia was invited by Wikimedia Deutschland for Partnership Workshop. As the newcomer of this group, we learnt a lot about partnership works and process from various Wikimedia chapter or user groups. This was a two-day workshop aimed to recapture and reviewing 6 vision from previous workshop and combining with the interpretation of Strategic Direction to create the Partnership Statement.
