Prize money for local wiki project[edit]

Are there any guidelines about local prizes? Please clarify, within what amount can local prizes be fixed? Please let us know, with whom do we need to contact to fix the local prizes. Babulbaishya (talk) 15:35, 25 December 2022 (UTC)Reply

This query was already reverted on mail. --Tiven2240 (talk) 04:02, 26 December 2022 (UTC)Reply

Last year, Prize money coupon was in dollars and not utilisable in India as it was credited to Amazon USA.--Snehrashmi (talk) 15:40, 26 December 2022 (UTC)Reply

Dear @Snehrashmi, after declaration of winners we circulate the form in which winner have to mention the currency in which they want to receive the funds. If one selects dollars we shall disburse the winning prize in Dollars. Thanks and all the best for this year. Warm Regards --Tiven2240 (talk) 12:52, 23 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Last year Currency option was not there. I got the amazon gift voucher which was directly deposited to Amazon USA Account from the mail link. Thank you for the clarification regarding Currency Option this year. Happy editing. Snehrashmi (talk) 16:02, 23 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
@Snehrashmi Would you like to organize the project from the Gujarati Wikipedia as you have been from past years. We would highly appreciate your help and assistance in organizing --Tiven2240 (talk) 02:10, 24 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Yes. I have already made the Contest page on Gujarati Wikipedia (વિકિપીડિયા:નારીવાદ અને લોકસંસ્કૃતિ ૨૦૨૩) and will definitely participate. We are very small community so number of participants may be less but will try our best. Thank you. Snehrashmi (talk) 03:19, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Thank you @Snehrashmi, we wish you and the Gujarati Community all the best. Can you add the page to the project pages list. Feel free to reach out if you need any assistance. Meanwhile we would also like to inform you that we are supporting internet and childcare support to organisers and jury of Feminism and Folklore. This is optional and can be opted in if required. You can use this link to fill the form to receive the support. --Tiven2240 (talk) 03:43, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Done. I have added the page to the project pages list. I don't know to add fountain tool for my community so would you please assist me to add fountain tool? Thanking you. Snehrashmi (talk) 04:00, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Who would be the jury? Also can you make a template similar to this one in Gujarati Once confirmed I'll share you the fountain link --Tiven2240 (talk) 07:05, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

The Afrikaans Wikipedia[edit]

It is with great pleasure that I can inform you that there are already 649 links to our South African female botanist [Louisa Bolus]!! You can give the 1st prize to us already! Regards! Oesjaar Oesjaar (talk) 17:40, 26 December 2022 (UTC)Reply


Hi, there seems to be an unnecessary “s” in File:Feminism and Folklore banner.svg (femisnism…). You might want to fix this before it spreads in a wrong way. —DerHexer (Talk) 10:36, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for pointing out I have made the changes. Done --Tiven2240 (talk) 16:24, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply

"New or expanded"[edit]

I think one of the rules is a little ambiguous.

  • The new or expanded article must be at least 3000 bytes or 300 words in size.

That means that someone could come to an article that is already >3000 bytes and >300 words and add just one more byte/word.

Last time, we used something more like this:

  • Each new article must be at least 3000 bytes or 300 words in size.
  • Each expanded article must be at least 3000 bytes bigger or 300 words longer than before.

What do you think? Darkfrog24 (talk) 20:07, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Darkfrog24 yes the text means that the expanded article must also have 3000 bytes or 300 words. Tiven2240 (talk) 04:01, 2 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Total? Even if the contestant adds only one word? Darkfrog24 (talk) 04:17, 2 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Dear @Darkfrog24 it is necessary for 300 words or 3000 bytes to be added for Feminism and Folklore --Tiven2240 (talk) 16:34, 5 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
I will adjust the rule accordingly. Darkfrog24 (talk) 20:14, 5 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

Overlap with other edit-a-thons[edit]

It will overlap with the 1lib1ref for the first 5 days and Wikimedia CEE Spring for the last 10 days. Some projects may have two ongoing edit-a-thons at the same time because of that. No real issues with that, just something to keep in mind. -Vipz (talk) 05:11, 10 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Vipz thanks for your comments. Happy organizing :) --Tiven2240 (talk) 10:24, 10 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

Fountain tool[edit]

Hello, I've been asked to help out with the en.wp local contest. Is the expectation that we set up our own Fountain page for the local contest? That would mean that participants would have to submit each article to Fountain twice to be also eligible for the global contest. Perhaps @Ле Лой can tell us if the tool will allow sorting by language Wiki so all contests could use the same page? Gamaliel (talk) 18:38, 22 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Gamaliel local organisers have to create a local fountain or dashboard tool for the local contest. After the contest is over the international Team will collect data from each language and then work on to select international prize winners. If you need any help in creating Enwp fountain tool please do connect. Thank you. Tiven2240 (talk) 12:48, 23 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
@Tiven2240 Thank you for the clarification. I've set up our local contest tool here. Gamaliel (talk) 15:59, 23 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Thank you @Gamaliel, we wish you all the best. Feel free to reach out if you need any assistance. Meanwhile we would also like to inform you that we are supporting internet and childcare support to organisers and jury of Feminism and Folklore. This is optional and can be opted in if required. You can use this link to fill the form to receive the support. --Tiven2240 (talk) 02:24, 24 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

Who is funding the prizes?[edit]

It would be helpful to add information about that on the frontpage. -Vipz (talk) 04:14, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply

The project is financially supported by WMF Tiven2240 (talk) 10:56, 2 April 2023 (UTC)Reply

The last date of Editathon[edit]

Hi @Tiven2240, greetings! the rule in the homepage says "The article should be expanded or created between 1 February and 31 March." But the extended date is 15 April. Could you please clarify it? -Chandan Chiring Phukon Chat 03:11, 29 March 2023 (UTC)Reply

15 April will be last day to create and submit articles Tiven2240 (talk) 10:55, 2 April 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Tiven2240, Fountain tool is down at the moment. --Jojit (talk) 05:26, 3 April 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Jojit fbWe have informed the developer. Let's wait until they respond. Tiven2240 (talk) 13:51, 3 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
@Tiven2240 did the developer responded? We can't add articles into the tool for .bs wiki Panassko (talk) 12:47, 5 April 2023 (UTC)Reply

Articles in Simple English[edit]

Hello @Tiven2240, I ask you to check the articles of the participant @Haoreima: again. His articles are very short. The rules should be the same for everyone. Let the international organizers decide if Darkfrog24 can't do it. Thank you. Aidar254 (talk) 17:51, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
