Ig Wiki Librarians Hub/Activities/Info visibility on Wikipedia

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki



Info visibility on Wikipedia is an event aimed at improving articles on the Igbo Wikipedia. This improvements will enable more information about the article or subject through data boxes. Data box works like the infobox that is seen on the right corner of an article on English Wikipedia or other language Wikipedias. The Translation of Wikidata Properties commenced within the Igbo Wikimedians community and Ig Wiki Librarians Hub members to make data boxes appear in Igbo language when databox templates are placed on articles, thereby creating more visibility of major information about the subject of an article on Igbo Wikipedia. This event will end with a contest and winners will be awarded prizes.
