User:Ananth (CIS-A2K)/Newsletter Guidelines


The CIS-A2K newsletter intended to describe all the activities & events organised by CIS-A2K towards Indian Wikimedia communities. In our newsletter, we provide a short update of the events conducted and it also includes announcement, a press release or a status update of the project. This can also be considered as a short monthly report to the community to understand the work being done and to join the hands with A2K in further events.

How to write the newsletter article edit

  • Top header
__NOTOC__ {{:CIS-A2K/Newsletter temp | Month = December 2020 | Volume = Volume 12 }}
Fill the data in the template according to the preparation date.
  • Section headers: We use H2 headers (== Header ==), to differentiate between the sections. Do not add links to section header, this would give the reader a worse overview of the sections.
  • Red links: Newsletter should not contain red links
  • Links to Wikipedia projects: Link the pages to Wikipedia or other Wikimedia project by using the interwiki link, this will help to gather more information about the events held.
