Formatting of the first paragraph[edit]

@Benipal hardarshan: Your recent edit to {{Feminism and Folklore header}} would cause the first paragraph not to have larger font and the rest of the page not to have gray background anymore. Is this what you really want? Unfortunately you haven’t left any edit comment that would explain your intentions. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:47, 15 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

March for women in folklore[edit]

Hi organizers, me & @Mickey83: which are organizing this event for the third time in Italy on behalf of WikiDonne, are trying to set better our contest on itwiki. For this we found some mismatch between one of the paragraphs which says pick up a topic of your own provided it is in relation with the main theme [my note:folklore] and focusing on closing the gender gap[my note:women in folklore], but on the Theme section, seems that February is dedicated to folklore in general, and only March is for women in folklore. My doubt is there will be a division/separation: users who will write only about folklore (in February), and users who will write about women in folklore (in March). And this will be seen by someone as a kinda two contents which are hard to manage. If I can suggest a compromise, both months can be set as editathon on all related to folklore (including women in folklore), but with another rule on giving additional points for women bios, in order to increase them and reach the goal of reducing the gender gap. This worked in the past with a lot of other contests and communities (es. Spanish). --Camelia (talk) 21:05, 19 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Great idea!--Mickey83 (talk) 21:11, 19 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello @Camelia & @Mickey83! Thank you for your efforts so far in past years and yes of course these are great suggestions we can look into.Just to hint that some organizers this time round have merged both commons campaign with the Wikipedia campaign to serve both purposes in both months thus February through to March. We hope to learn from their experience and also factor yours as well. Best Joy Agyepong (talk)


@Joy Agyepong and Benipal hardarshan: Hi organizers. I'm from bnwiki. We, as a Bengali wikipedia community probably won't participate in this contest. Because at the same time we will be running another contest. My question is can someone from bnwiki participate in this contest individually? For example, someone want to participate in this contest but there will be no other participant from bnwiki. will that person eligible for global top contributors (most articles) prize then? --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 20:00, 31 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello @আফতাবুজ্জামান Thank you for reaching out, it's sad to hear that your community will not participate. However, yes of course individuals can participate in the global contest and win prizes it's very open to all whichever prize so far as they meet all the criteria. Please encourage them to contribute. Let us know if anything else. Best. Joy Agyepong (talk) 19:26, 1 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
