Proposal to Enable CampaignEvents Extension on Igbo Wikipedia[edit]

Ndewo nụ ndi Igbo Wịkịmidia!

I am reaching out on behalf of the Campaigns Product team at WMF. We are excited to inform you about our intent to enable the CampaignEvents extension on Igbo Wikipedia.

The CampaignEvents extension is designed to enhance event organization and management within Wikimedia communities. By enabling this extension on your wiki, you will have access to powerful features that streamline event planning, promotion, and coordination.

We believe that enabling the CampaignEvents extension on Igbo Wikipedia will greatly benefit your community by:

  • Facilitating easier event creation and management.
  • Enhancing collaboration and engagement among community members.
  • Improving event discoverability and participation.

We are committed to supporting you throughout this process and providing assistance every step of the way. Our team will be available to answer any questions, provide guidance on enabling the extension, and offer resources to help you maximize its potential.

We would like to invite you to a call to discuss this proposal further and address any concerns or questions you may have. Please let us know your availability, and we will schedule a convenient time for the call.

[Update] Good news! Following the community's show of support, our engineering team will now start the process of adding the CampaignEvents Extension to Igbo Wikipedia. This is a special moment because Igbo Wikipedia will be the first wiki to enable this extension after Meta-Wiki.

Since this is our first time doing this outside of Meta-Wiki, it might take a little longer for our team to set everything up. We want to ensure everything runs smoothly. This is a big step for us and an opportunity to learn, making it easier to bring this extension to other wikis in the future.

I will update you on our progress and let you know when the extension is enabled. Thank you for your support and patience as we embark on this exciting journey. -Udehb-WMF (talk) 17:26, 26 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Africa Wiki Challenge 2024[edit]

Hello team, I am planning to organize a project in the Ebonyi State University (EBSU) Ig wiki Fan Club for the Africa Wiki Challenge 2024. Having seen that there is a content gap on the educational system, policies and programme in the Igbo Wikipedia, this project aims to fill up such gap through creating and translating articles around Education both in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

I need your support in this project. Chikeme Chizurum
