Wikimedia Iran

This page is for discussion about the proposal for an Iranian chapter of Wikimedia. This chapter can help coordinate and promote various Persian language Wikimedia projects like Wikipedia, Wikisource, Wiktionary, Wikibooks etc at Iran, and to create and improve related articles in other languages.

این صفحه به بحث در راستای ایجاد شعبهٔ ویکی‌مدیا در ایران اختصاص دارد. این شعبه می‌تواند به هماهنگی و تبلیغ پروژه‌های مختلف فارسی ویکی‌مدیا نظیر ویکی‌پدیا، ویکی‌گونه، ویکی‌واژه، ویکی‌نسک و غیره در ایران، و ایجاد و بهتر کردن مقاله‌های مرتبط با آن در زبان‌های دیگر کمک کند.

  • Very good idea. we need it. first, I think, need to translate Wikimedia chapters and also Step by step chapter creation guide. Sadegh50ir 23:05, 7 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Good but premature idea. We have a long way to it, I believe. Huji 14:43, 9 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Long way? or premature? 2 seperate things. Long way is no matter, coz the way must be travelled. but why do you think, it's premature? Sadegh50ir 18:08, 9 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Because, as much as I know about the ongoing discussions, the idea is not mature yet. Huji 20:28, 13 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    So would you plz inform us about that discussions links or results.Sadegh50ir 21:08, 18 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Most of the discussion has probably taken place off-wiki, or we could have known more of it. I would expect people who immediately support the idea to provide you with such links, not me. Huji 16:54, 29 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • I think we need a mailing list at first steps. I don't know what is going on in this community please inform us. --Mmehdi.g 10:17, 30 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I am preparing bylaws.after some progress i will sent the copy to all people above and after we need some meeting to help out--Mardetanha talk 10:36, 30 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
by mailing list we can talk about law and problems in Iran. --Mmehdi.g 16:55, 30 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We already have another mailing list which you can access in here --Mardetanha talk 19:50, 30 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That mailing list is dedicated to Persian Wikipedia, not Wikimedia Iran. I think Wikimedia Iran can have its own mailing list, where subjects such as those suggested by Mmehdi.g can be discussed. However, I'm not sure if this is the time for it. Maybe we need to hit the road first, in a more sensible way, and then request for a new mailing list. Huji 18:36, 31 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
