Stories about sharing[edit]

Interesting stories about applying the skills I want to share.

1. Setting up templates for Wikimedia projects (Main pages, infoboxes, etc.) 2. Identifying topics of impact 3. Basic Wikidata use and how it can support other projects

Infoboxes are for articles in English Wikipedia while Databoxes are for articles in other Wikipedia languages. This templates like the citation template helps one to identify the category/categories of articles and a brief introduction to a written article. Templates are set in many areas of Wikipedia as well as for the inclusion of citations, links, pronunciation and audio or pdf books in an article. After a training session in my User group, i learnt the importance of templates and how to add them to articles. I began adding Databoxes to my translated articles.

Topics for impact are identified before setting up a campaign for a Wikipedia program or contest. This topics helps the instructor or facilitators as well as giving them a guide to areas of contribution in a program or a contest and help the dashboard or other wikitools for tracking track the program accordingly.

Wikidata has it's basic use and support for other programs in the aspect of adding lexemes, translating, editing, e.t.c. I've been able to edit and translate articles in Wikidata in programs and few contest in my user group.
