This is a short manual summary overview of the Source pages on Meta. It has been built by combining the two manual summaries of the Sources pages (I, II) that were designed to give people a broad idea what other communities than their own are talking about. As with the previous summaries of this format, the text indicates how many source statements were available at the time it was drafted and therefore taken into account at the time of writing. (3s), for example, means 3 statements were available on the referenced source page at the time the summary was drafted.

  • The Arabic Wikipedia’s village pump discussion (26s) surfaced the view that the Wikipedia Education Program should be a priority, including opening permanent Wikimedia offices in educational institutions (§Ar1). Vandalism and competition from Wikipedia in Arabic dialects is seen as a problem by some editors (§Ar4) (§Ar10). Users have supported creation of multilingual projects such as Wikipedia (§Ar5) and Wiktionary (§Ar6), hiring of paid staff to verify content (§Ar7) and to form an editorial board (§Ar13). We should focus on neutrality (§Ar14), integrating with social media (§Ar17), content gap (§Ar18) and audio content (§Ar19). We should also focus on newcomers (§Ar21), improving MediaWiki (§Ar22), starting GLAM projects (§Ar23), using social media (§Ar24), unified login from all devices (§Ar25) and improving wiktionary interface. (§Ar26) While the related Facebook group (4s) emphasized focusing on improving technical aspects of Wikimedia Projects (§Ar2.1 (to 4)).

Partnering with related organizations (§Bn1.7), developing spell correction tools (§Bn1.5) and creating audiobooks on Wikisource (§Bn1.8) should be a focus. Article writing should be easier and emphasize both content quality and quantity. Frequent global contests would be helpful, including give rewards for contribution (such as mobile data), engage students and mentor newcomers (§Bn1.20, §Bn1.33). Sister projects should be promoted (§Bn1.26) and all projects integrate Wikidata with all for automatic updating (§Bn1.25). Community members at Bengali community meetups (12s) suggested promoting Wikimedia projects via Wikipedia Library buses (§Bn2.1) and calendars (§Bn2.2). The gender and content gaps (§Bn2.5, §Bn2.4) should be addressed.
