Proposed participation[edit]

I am Wikimedian since 2009 and have contributed to Wikimedia projects in various languages. Lately I have been wondering if we can come up with a different project to collect all the Human Folklore. Hence, I came up with a proposal named Wikilore. Besides this, I have experience of using Content Translation and I have taught editors to use Content Translation in the past.

My proposal to present a session about Wikilore and a one-hour workshop on Content Translation at FOSSASIA'16 has been accepted. I hope to motivate some people to edit Wikimedia projects and also I will try to build upon the proposed project.

Goal and expected impact[edit]

With my participation at FOSSASIA'16, I will be representing the global Wikimedia movement. I wish to accomplish the following goals if I am given this opportunity to attend this event:

  • Discuss the merits and demerits of the proposed project.
  • New editors on Wikimedia projects.
  • Around 20 new articles using Content Translation in around 10 different languages.
  • Feedback about improving Content Translation.

Budget breakdown[edit]

  • Travel (round trip airfare from New Delhi to Singapore): USD ~ 400
  • Speaker Ticket for the event = USD ~ 230
  • Accommodation: USD 75 per night x 4 nights = USD ~ 300
  • Food (4 Meals) = USD ~ 100
  • Local Trasnport = USD ~ 60
  • Visa = USD ~ 22

I will get Access to all event venues, speakers room, lunch, snacks at the event, invitation to the social event with the Speaker Ticket.

Other instructions[edit]

  • I have no problem if WMF can choose the best flights and accommodation for me.
