IMLD-ODD 2018 Wikidata India Edit-a-thon
- The Indian Wikidata community has been given a good boost by a series of workshops conducted by Asaf Bartov from WMF, earlier in September 2017. These workshops trained more than 100 editors to contribute to Wikidata. Following these, the Indian community witnessed a great level of activity of Wikidata. Also WikiProject India that has been formed on Wikidata was a result of these workshops. Post these, a couple short individual edit-a-thon were organized by Titodutta (can be seen here and here). So to increase the community capacity even further, this idea of a ten day long editing campaign has been put forward during TTT 2018, and took shape along.
- It was a national level Wikidata campaign that focuses on the items and properties related to India.
- From 21 February 2018 (International Mother Language Day) to 3 March 2018 (Open Data Day)
