Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well? We have been able to complete the programs successfully
  • What did not work so well? We faced some duplications during the program as there is no way one can know which lexemes have already been created but thanks to WikidataAdmin Mahir256 who notified me about it t and provided a tool that we used to check whether a lexeme exist or not
  • What would you do differently next time? Add more effort for more outcomes
