Talk:India Program/Indic Languages/Assamese/Discussions/2011
Some interesting comments - especially about the fundamental lack of awareness on the very existence of these projects, and the potential to use local media to promote these. This I suspect is a common thread across all Indic language projects.
One pointer from this discussion is that there is the assumption that writing in mother tongues might resolve the challenges of writing in English, but this is not necessarily going to be so straightforward as mentioned by one of the Editors. Something to keep in mind as initiatives are planned out. Hmundol 13:22, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
- Yeah. That applies to most of the indic languages. As the editor mentioned, we are ending up not having proficiency in any language, which is not good. Few Malayalam wikimedians used to say that wikipedia is bringing change to that scenario. I have seen live examples of that in Malayalam wikipedia. --Shiju Alex (WMF) 04:35, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
Why some editors' names are mentioned as Editor1, Editor2 etc while mine is not? Please explain. Further, it seems to me that only you and another member (Viswaprabha) are writing all the pages. How do I know that these are authentic? Psneog 11:04, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
- //Why some editors' names are mentioned as Editor1, Editor2 etc while mine is not? Please explain.//
- This is because some editors asked not to mention their name. If you are fine with displaying the name I have no issue to add that.
- //Further, it seems to me that only you and another member (Viswaprabha) are writing all the pages. How do I know that these are authentic? //
- In fact I am the only person talking with different language wikimedians and documenting the discussions. Many fellow wikimedians including Vishwaparabha, Ashwin, Tanvir has helped me to add categories, creating templates and all that. Hope I answered your queries. --Shiju Alex (WMF) 11:18, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
