@Ananth (CIS-A2K): Most of the communities requested for the souvenir (juries) and certification for all participants at the discussion in Chennai. Has something been decided about it this time? --Sridhar G (talk) 15:27, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Hello Sridhar G, in Project Tiger 1.0, there was not appreciation or prize(s) for jury members. In Project Tiger 2.0 we may add souvenir for jury members. PT 2.0 has just started, we'll inform you once the process of article review, etc starts. Please feel free to share your suggestion(s). Regards. --Tito (CIS-A2K) (talk) 07:01, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Bytes column[edit]

@Jayprakash12345:I saw randomly the given topics. some topics are below 9000 bytes, for example en:Periya Veetu Pannakkaran, en:Challan If we add a byte-column, next to English topics, that will be helpful for writers. Is it possible by media wiki or we have to write by the external library like Beautiful soup(python)?--Info-farmer (talk) 01:46, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

Actually i tried to solve by Javascript which give permanent solution. But due to insufficient time , my friend, tshrinivasan wrote this python script + to make input CSV. To get updated byte size, we have to run this script every time. It is a facility for the contributor. A contributor is going to select a article to translate. If the en.article is below 9000 bytes. That article is not good for the contest. But google suggested many small en.articles which are below 9000 bytes. For example, Challan-4,739 bytes so we,, wrote a python script to help the selection.--Info-farmer (talk) 15:36, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
