Welcome to Meta!Edit

Hello, Manavpreet Kaur. Welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum if you need help with something (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). Happy editing!

-- Meta-Wiki Welcome (talk) 15:55, 9 November 2014 (UTC)


Hi. On the meta 100wikidays page, I noticed how carefully you enter the wikidata numbers related to the articles you created during the challenge. But sometimes they are missing. Why don't you create them yourself ? It's easy. Wikidata is a very powerful tool, and knowing how it works is quite useful. Best, Trace (talk) 23:03, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi Trace, thank you for dropping a line... actually I tried but I don't have access to that link...there is something wrong with the available hopefully I'll get it rectified soon and then will definitely generate the numbers for the unavailable articles.--Dr. Manavpreet Kaur (talk) 08:39, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Well, just go to wikidata and paste the name of the article you have just created into the search field : if it doesn't exist, you will have the option to create a new item.

If you do create it, you will type its name in its language, and also its description if you want to. Then you press "Create " to create it.

Once it is created, you can add the link to the wiki where you created it - in your case, the punjabi wiki. After that, you can add translations and descriptions in more languages, and even statements about your article, such as "topic's main category", "subclass of" or "instance of"...

Have a look at Gastroenteritis Viral on wikidata : the item has many statements, such as :

subclass of
gastrointestinal disease
has cause
vomiting, diarrhea

etc. These informations are properly filed and can be read by robots to improve content on other wikis, to help translating pages, to create new ones by crossing files and so on : it is very useful to use wikidata because it is a way to share knowledge outside the boundaries of your own language.

Even if you only create items without filling in the statements !

Best, Trace (talk) 11:10, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Absence of T Shirts @ WikiConference India 2016 programEdit


I attended WikiConference India 2016 program on 5, 6 and 7, but it is sad that participation T Shirts were not provided at the event. --Muzammil (talk) 17:13, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi Muzammil, I'm really sorry that you didn't get the t-shirt. We distributed the t-shirts on 6th Aug, 2016 from 1:00 PM onwards. In some cases, we gave the t-shirts for all the candidates from one community to one of its member. We even went to Regenta Hotel to distribute the t-shirts and the certificates. Please share your details and I'll try sending you one. Regards---Dr. Manavpreet Kaur (talk) 05:22, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Wikimedia Diversity Conference: We need your help!Edit

Dear User:Dr. Manavpreet Kaur,

Thank you for signing up to be an ambassador for Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017! Some of the conference pages are now marked for translation. Please consider translating these pages to the languages you know so that people around the world can read about Wikimedia Diversity Conference in the languages they are familiar with. Please click on the 'Translate this page ' link on top of the main page of the conference to start translating! We are grateful that ambassadors like you are striving to make the Diversity Conference truly global and multi-linguistic. --Netha Hussain (talk) 18:29, 25 July 2017 (UTC)


Hi! Thank you for the translation. But were you by chance using machine translation to do it? I am fine with machine translation as long as you proofread the text after it, but it seems that you have damaged translation variables. All those "$ref2" and such must appear in the translation exactly as in the original text. Could you fix it? It will also make the errors at the bottom of the page to disappear. Satdeep Gill, could you help with this, please? --Base (talk) 12:28, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi! Yes I have used the machine but I have proofread the text and assure you that its the correct version and reflects the message clearly. I will check and rectify the errors. Thank you :) Manavpreet Kaur (talk) 19:02, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for pointing out the errors to me. I have fixed them. Manavpreet Kaur (talk) 21:06, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Last minute search for jurors for the upcoming Wiki Science CompetitionEdit

Hi, I don't know if you crossed some of the messages I left on English or French or Spanish wikipedia, wikidata, commons and wikiversity about this event.

I am checking with Ivo Kruusamägi from Wikimedia Estonia the composition of the final jury. We did our best to keep it balanced by continent, gender, field etc but in the end it is still a little bit eurocentric. I mean, it is good they are not all from Estonia and Italy, but of course it could have been better. Finding 15 names (and other one for more national juries) to help was not easy, in the end. I did gather some "maybes" from China and India in private that might be used next time, including people in national juries that we can promote but so far I could only reduce the gender unbalance.

I hope that the results will promote science around the globe in any case. As a last appropriate effort now that more urgent issues have been addressed and we are finalizing the main organization, I am looking all the profiles of active wikimedians from or related to Africa, South American Oceania or Asia with a possible public name and surname (as a form of transparency, jurors should be public figure) and a scientific or technological education or position. Like yours.

Would you be interested in joining us to be a juror in the second-level jury? I am sure that next time we will find new additional contacts and I will not contact you at the last minute. Of course, if we can finally get two or three new names, we can promote one of them, with the best scientific background, to the final jury too.

Even you don't have time, could you help us also in promoting the event amongst people you know or mailing lists or groups you have joined? This will be also useful to promote more national juries next time. It was already hard to organize one in parallel to this, we did our best to promote initiatives on all the continents.

In any case thank you in advance.--Alexmar983 (talk) 14:19, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi Alexmar983,

Thank you for the invitation, I will be very happy to be associated with the event. Please let me know how can I assist you.Manavpreet Kaur (talk) 03:51, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Good, write to me or Ivo K. for the personal email!--Alexmar983 (talk) 03:58, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Send me an email, so we put you in the ML of the jurors... and than on the website :)--Alexmar983 (talk) 12:46, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
you were put on the website, but I cannot find your email. Did you contact me in the end? I have so many things to do, I always forget some details.--Alexmar983 (talk) 15:34, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

Wikimedia diversity - What happened at the conference and how to follow upEdit

Hello Manavpreet Kaur,
We are messaging you now because you signed up as an ambassador for Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017. We are sharing this message far and wide, so apologies in advance if you are receiving this message twice.

During the conference, we dedicated a full afternoon to discussing the strategic direction and what it means for the work on diversity in the Wikimedia movement. Compiling the outcomes of those conversations, we summarized the key problems and solutions identified, and we created a summary statement. But the conversation is far from over! We still need to hear from diversity ambassadors: (1) what does working for diversity mean at your local context?; (2) what are the needs that should be addressed; (3) what resources are relevant for these identified needs?

We know that diversity gains meaning in context, and this is why we need to hear every voice. Please take a few minutes to go over to the diversity conversation page and add your comments.

If you’d like to stay in touch, and share your experience working for diversity with others, add your profile on our group here.

Thank you and see you on the wiki,
Sara (talk)

Come join Wikimedia CEE Spring 2018/CEE Women again! <3Edit

Get a postcard from one of the countries in red :)

Hello, Manavpreet ! You receive this message because last year you took part in the CEE Women challenge. This year the challenge repeats, and it will take longer: from now until the end of May (about 10 weeks).

Please, feel invited to visit the page Wikimedia CEE Spring 2018/CEE Women and join the challenge again. Help have more notable women from Central and Eastern Europe in more language versions globally, including Panjabi. We again have a list of ideas for biographic articles of women from all over the CEE.

What is different this year is that now you can set your own minimal number of articles as a measure of your challenge (i don't advise you to challenge yourself with more than 70 ;) 10-20 is perfect!). Also, you can receive as a prize a postcard not only from Bulgaria (as in 2017), but also from a list of countries from CEE and around the world. Apart of being a receiver, you can also opt to be a sender of postcards from your country to some of the other participants! That would also be awesome!

Thank you in advance for any contribution you make to CEE Women, and for spreading the word in your local wiki community! Love, Vassia / Spiritia 18:36, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

-WIth Metta, Mallikarjuna. 03:49, 28 May 2018 (UTC) Good Morning Ms Kaur, I got your contact from yesterday's Project Tiger Wiki ediathton at CIS Bangalore.. We've been trying to connect with all Wikipedians in Bangalore, across languages. A meetup like that will help to carry forward the momentum of Project Tiger.

You seem to be the contact from Punjabi Wiki. I'll send out a formal request to you. Please put a notice on Punjabi Village Pump & help me get connected to as many Bangalore based PUnjabi Wikipedia Contributors. In June 2018, we wish to host a meeting of Bangalore based all language & all projects Wikipedians at CIS Office Bangalore.

Tito Dutta from CIS-A2K has been very much willing to support this effort. -WIth Metta, Mallikarjuna. 03:49, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

[Wikipedia & Education User Group] Updates: November 2018Edit


Integrating Wikimedia with education is a powerful strategy for the outreach of Wikimedia projects. Realising this concept, a group of leaders promoted this and formed the Wikipedia Education Collaborative. After some time, this evolved to become a user group, officially recognised by the Affiliations Committee in June 2018. The user group had its first board elections earlier in September. In the process to formalise activities and give a shape the user group for long-term sustainability, we are now revamping our processes. Thanks for supporting us during incubation stages, we are now inviting you to formally join the user group by following the instructions on the members' page. Being a member will allow you to be a part of this wonderful collaboration and also do interesting stuff.

Kind regards

Wikimania AmbassadorEdit


I noticed that you have signed up as a Wikimedia Diversity Ambassador, after the Diversity Conference held in Stockholm 2017. In August this year, Wikimania will take place in Stockholm, and our goal is to use Ambassadors to reach out to local communities, to spread the news about the conference and the outcomes afterwards. The conference theme (still to be announced) will connect closely to diversity. If you would like to be involved as a Wikimania ambassador, please sign up at the Ambassador page at the Wikimania wiki!

A first thing to do, if you would like to help out, would be to translate the scholarship page at the Wikimania wiki into the language(s) you speak!

Best, Eric Luth (WMSE) (talk) 09:21, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Discussion on the Brand ProjectEdit

Hi Manavpreet Kaur,

I will contact you as you have registered as a member of WikiDonne User Group. As you may know, these days we are discussing the Brand Project of the Wikimedia movement, a naming and design system that concerns the Wikimedia movement, the affiliates (user group, chapters and thematic organizations) and WMF. One group discussion has been launched on Meta, another on WikiDonne project discussion page in Italian Wikipedia and a call is scheduled on Saturday 27 June at 17.30 (CEST). I invite you to take part in the discussions and express your opinion. A summary of the discussions and feedback will be grouped in the survey that will be sent to the Brand Project team and will represent the response/position of the WikiDonne user group to this issue. Thanks and see you soon, - Camelia (talk) 14:02, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi Camelia, Thank you so much for the information and invitation to the call. I will be there for the discussion.

Invitation to affiliate members to complete a survey about WMF wide Universal Code of ConductEdit

Hello; My name is Mervat, and I am helping the Trust and Safety team to reach out to affiliates in order to discuss the Universal Code of Conduct.  

There has been talks about the need for a global set of conduct rules in different communities over time, and finally, Wikimedia Foundation Board announced a Community Culture Statement, enacting new standards to address harassment and promote inclusivity across projects.Since the universal code of conduct that will be a binding minimum set of standards across all Wikimedia projects, will apply to all of us, staff and volunteers alike, all around the globe, and will impact our work as groups, individuals and projects, it’s of great importance that we all participate in expressing our opinions and thoughts about UCoC, its nature, what we think it should cover or include and what it shouldn’t include; how it may develop, drawback or help our groups.   This is the time to talk about it. As you are a valuable contributor to the Wikimedia movement, your voice counts. Before starting to draft the code of conduct, we would like to hear from you; We invite you to devote some minutes to take this survey; your answers will help us create a safer environment for all on Wikimedia: 

It’s possible that you are a member of more than one affiliate; hence you may receive this survey more than once, and you may have participated previously in the discussions or filled out a previous survey during the first round of consultations about UCoC which targeted wikipedia/wikimedia communities. We apologize for this; it is really difficult to identify if a wikimedian belongs to multiple groups that work to spread free knowledge. Looking forward to your thoughts and opinions and hoping that you can respond within the next 2 weeks.  If you have any questions about the surveys or difficulties accessing the link, please contact me by email ( will be considered during the drafting process for the UCoCThank you for your participation

Invitation to participate in Universal Code of Conduct survey - WikiWomen's User GroupEdit

(You are receiving this message as you signed your interest to participate as part of the WikiWomen's User Group)

Hello, my name is Mervat Salman, a UCoC Facilitator, Trust and Safety team.

As you know, the WMF Board of Trustees ratified the Universal Code of Conduct early in February. That's the beginning; the policy itself cannot be used if the enforcement pathways are not defined. The implementation and enforcement of the UCoC requires the continuous cooperation to define clear definitions of enforcement pathways and processes. This needs to be done in a way that does not contradict with the internal bylaws and codes of conduct currently in place, but rather to support them and complement their deficiencies, if any.

In this phase of the process, we would like to invite you to share your ideas, thoughts and concerns about the UCoC implementation, reporting and enforcement pathways using this survey:

Notice: This survey will be conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement <>.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact

Best regards,

Mervat (WMF) 17:00, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
