IMLD-ODD 2018 Wikidata India Edit-a-thon

Main page Participants Lists of items Resources Results


  • Background:
  • The Indian Wikidata community has been given a good boost by a series of workshops conducted by Asaf Bartov from WMF, earlier in September 2017. These workshops trained more than 100 editors to contribute to Wikidata. Following these, the Indian community witnessed a great level of activity of Wikidata. Also WikiProject India that has been formed on Wikidata was a result of these workshops. Post these, a couple short individual edit-a-thon were organized by Titodutta (can be seen here and here). So to increase the community capacity even further, this idea of a ten day long editing campaign has been put forward during TTT 2018, and took shape along.
