WAM logo in SlovakEdit

Hi, following on this, I would like to ask how does it look with the handwriting for the logo of Asian Month in Slovak since I haven't found any email from you so far. Sincerely, --Luky001 (talk) 18:42, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

Luky001, I will request here. --Patriccck (talk) 11:34, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
Luky001: Prvotní verze je hotova, můžeš to zkusit pomocí těch handwriting pictures a porovnat, co je lepší. --Patriccck (talk) 16:10, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
Luky001 You didn't receive any email from me? That's weird... I will send the handwriting pictures to you again tomorrow. -- Jamie Li-Yun Lin (talk) 13:52, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
Jamie, can you send handwriting pictures to me? Thanks! --Patriccck (talk) 16:10, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
@Patriccck: Patriccck, I could have done the version with the font as in Czech logo months ago but I wanted to have original handwriting from Li-Yun Lin. I have been waiting for this handwriting for quite some time now and I will request the Slovak logo with handwriting on my own. Thanks for the help but please leave it to me, it will not make further confusion. This logo can be deleted, there is "ÁZIJSKÝ MĚSÍAC" instead of "ÁZIJSKÝ MESIAC".
@Li-Yun Lin: Thanks for doing the handwriting, if the logo doesn't come tomorrow I will tell you here and in the worst-case situation you can upload it on Commons. --Luky001 (talk) 20:23, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

WAM 2019Edit

Hi, why Sailesh Patnik is not WAM Chief Co-ordinator for this year? --Patriccck (talk) 11:36, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

He wants to take a rest and focus on other projects this year. I am dealing with some documents and reports these days, all the information related to WAM 2019 will be released as soon as possible. -- Jamie Li-Yun Lin (talk) 13:49, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for fast reply. Jamie, logo for WAM 2019 will be same like logo for WAM 2018? --Patriccck (talk) 16:13, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

WAM logo in CzechEdit

Can you please send the Czech handwriting pictures to me (for Czech logo)? --Patriccck (talk) 10:04, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

Listeria bot is bannedEdit

Hoi, we met at Wikimania (:GerardM) I told you about a project where Listeria is used for updating data from Wikidata ... The data is already used extensively so the question is can we please unblog Listeria.. It will make a big difference when we want to share data common to shared projects. This one is mine, Women in Red is another that uses Listeria lists. Thanks, GerardM (talk) 04:41, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

Suggestions for future WAMsEdit

Hello Li-Yun Lin, hello @AddisWang:

I am a regular contibutor to WAM in the German Wikipedia since 2015 and I would like to make some suggestions for the future events: I think that too much emphasis is currently laid on the number of articles created. I think we should strive not to create as many articles as possible but to create as many good articles as possible. In the past the contest has led to the creation of lots of relatively tiny articles (3kb+) which often do not really meet the criteria for high quality. Sometimes these are artificially inflated by overfluous details to achieve a size of more than 3kb. In my view, it is simply impossible to create more than, let's say 30 good articles in a month, because of time constraints. Users who are argueing otherwise may be not critical enough or have to low minimum quality standards.

My suggestions are the following:

  • abandoning the title "Asian Ambassador": the title leads to an unhealthy race to create lots of tiny articles of relative low quality
  • introducing a medal system as rewards instead (gold, silver, bronze medals), e.g., for creating 20, 10 or 4 articles.

Greetings --Furfur (talk) 08:37, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi, this is very good idea. --Patriccck (talk) 11:24, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

WAM Postcard FormEdit

Hello, first of all, if you are not in charge of the WAM Postcard, please forward this request to the person(s) concerned. Sorry to disturb you, but I got a message in the name of WAM International Team, which directed to you. I wanted to know if we can stop using Google Forms for collecting addresses for the WAM postcard. This is because (1) users need to have a Google account and (2) Google doesn't have a particularly good reputation for privacy and security. Would it be possible to do the same using an internal system, maybe from next year? Thank you --Jose Mathew C (talk) 20:21, 3 January 2020 (UTC)

WAM went dormant on Simple English WikipediaEdit

Hi, I'm not so concerned about getting a postcard, but would like to make sure that Simple is on the record for WAM and that the articles add to the total. Looks like the jurors at Simple dropped out. Not sure if I should bring this to your attention or someone else. Thanks, --Gotanda (talk) 01:23, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

WAM 2019 Esperanto winnerEdit

Dear Jamie, please check your email. I have send you an information about WAM 2019 Esperanto winner, who had problems to provide an address. It would be great if winner's effort was really appreciated by the postcard. If you are not responsible person for that, please forward the message to the right one and confirm it to me. Many thanks or WAM and you support! --KuboF Hromoslav (talk) 19:55, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
