Project scope


Pijar Teologi 2011 (Beacon of Theology 2011) is a 72 days wiki based writing competition. This competition is designed as an integrated event consist of encyclopedia style writing technique training, endurance test, and in the same time serve as an effort to enrich theological information in bahasa Indonesia.

The project will introduce and allow selected participant from Jakarta Theological Seminary, the oldest seminary in Jakarta, to be trained on how to write in wikipedia and compete for 72 days. The 70 participants, from M.div program until doctoral program in Jakarta Theological Seminary, are watched closely by committee while competing and graded using an article matrix calculation created specifically for the project and the 3 juries to grade the article quality.

Project goal


Externally The competition's short term goal is to find and identify new dedicated quality volunteers writers from Indonesian theologian circles. It will also serve as a way to introduce new ways of distributing theological knowledge in a free and effective way using correct terminology in the Indonesian language. Our goal is also to increase the quantity of theological writings in Wikipedia Bahasa Indonesia so people could have broader information. In addition, this competition is also directed for increasing the quality of theological writings that existing in Wikipedia Bahasa Indonesia.

The final goal is to have young leaders emerge from the project; it aims for sustainability by hoping that new volunteers, exposed by participating in the project, continue to participate in the movement.

Internally Project main goal is to add Indonesian Language Wikipedia very active contributors (100+ edit/ months) for three months. We got a lot of success from Bebaskan Pengetahuan Competition 2010 and we learned from that. The Indonesian very active contributors is stagnant around 28 (since Dec 2006) user for three years with the tendency of numbers of new articles dropping.
