  • Q:How many postcards can one individual get?
    A:Each Wikipedian who accomplishes the requirement on one Wikipedia will receive one.(we need contributors to make efforts rather than just have the names on the page; maximum five each Wikipedia).
  • Q:Does it mean if I create 10 articles on Sindhi Wikipedia, I will receive two postcards?
    A: No. Ten articles are the requirement to be accomplished. Additional articles are appreciated but do not increase your postcards.
  • Q:What is the maximum number of postcards that a user can get?
  • Q:Which country's postcard will I receive?
    A:The addresses will be randomly distributed, so no one knows until you receive it.
  • Q:I'm worried about my privacy.
    A:We will only collect address information and user name, and only the address will be given to the affiliate who will be sending postcards; your username will not. All information will be deleted immediately once the addresses have been distributed.
  • Q:If I don't receive the postcards for three months, what should I do?
    A:Due to the unreliable mail service in various countries, it may be possible that you don't get the postcards on time. However, we assure you that we have sent and dispatched the postcards. Please understand that this is a common issue in postcard sending.
  • Q: I live in or I am from one of the postcard-sending countries or regions. Can I choose to not get a postcard from that country or region?
    A: We will give you the option when we collect the address. You can choose one country, region or city that you don't want your postcard sent from.

Sindhi Wikipedia Ambassadors[edit]

  • Q: If I achieve the most number of articles in more than one Wikipedia, do I get multiple titles of the "Ambassador"?
    A: You will have the title on each language version of Wikipedia where you achieve most number of articles, while the second person on the Wikipedia you contribute less articles will also be honored as "Sindhi Wikipedia Ambassadors".
  • Q:What do I get from being honored as "Sindhi Wikipedia Ambassadors"?
    A: You will receive an additional postcard and a digital certificate! The certificate is made by stock paper, and we will scan it and send it to you. We will also copy it in regular paper and send it to you through the first class mail.
  • Q: What if there are more than two people who contribute the greatest number of articles in one version of Wikipedia?
    A:There will be only one Ambassador on each language version of Wikipedia, so the Wikipedians who contribute the same amount of articles will be re-ranked by their bytes count of total articles they created. (expanded article won't count at here.) We will consider giving the title to an additional person if the contribution is far more than average.


  • Q:If I write a Feature article, does it mean more points?
    A:No. This is not an article competition. However, we do encourage you to write a better quality article.
  • Q: Will my edit before May 26 be counted from editing draft page or user subpage?
    A: No. However, you can move the content from the draft page instead of moving the draft page.
  • Q:I don't live in Sindh, Pakistan. Can I still participate?
    A: Yes. There is no limit on that. The project welcomes participants from all over the world to increase Sindhi Wikipedia's and Wikipedia coverage of Sindhi people.
  • Can an IP user participate? (In other words, can users participate without having a registered Wikipedia account?)
    A: Due to the restriction of wmflab and our tool, IP users cannot participate. We strongly recommend that you register an account, which actually protects your privacy. Registration is simple and free.
  • Q: If an article subject (person) is Sindhi but not born in Sindh, will it count?
    A: Yes. But a person who is born in Sindh but gets his/her notability outside Sindh will also be count. (For example, a person born in Hyderabad, Sindh who is famous for accomplishments in USA, Europe or Africa will count.)
  • Q: If an article subject (person) is not Sindhi but his work contributes to promote Sindhi culture, will it count?
    A: Yes. People who get their notability only in Sindh, Pakistan and India while born outside Sindh can count. (For example, a journalist not of Sindhi ancestry who was born in an African, American, or European country but is famous only in Japan due to appearing on a Japanese news program would count.)
  • Q: Can I translate articles from other languages?
    A: Yes. So long as these Sindh-related articles are new to the Wikipedia for which you are translating them, they will count.
  • Q: Does a list qualify?
    A: No. Due to the complicated nature of selecting which kind of list are eligible and which are not, for simplicity of the rules, lists are not eligible. But in some Wikipedia, if the list article is promoted as Featured list, it can be counted.
  • Q: May I provide my previous posted articles for the contest.
    A: No, the articles have to be created and finished during the Sindhi Wikipedia Editthon. The purpose of the project is to develop new articles.
  • Q: How can I withdraw/remove my wrongly submitted article from the Fountain?
    A: Contact the tool developer.


  • Q:My home Wikipedia is not on the list but it is already May?
    A: You can start to run this event on your local Wikipedia any time before end of June(you don't want to launch it in last few days in June though). You can find all resources on meta. Please Contact User:JogiAsad or leave a message on this talk page to get help, and let us know you are in.
