About topics for the Gujarati language[edit]

Hello, I want to sign up for upcoming Article Writing Content (March-May 2018). But I feel bad to tell that the topics given in the list seem useless to me. I am sceptical about the subjects you provided as most of them are not related to India or of Indian interest. For example, Battle of Gettysburg (who would be interested in Gujarati article on a battle of American Civil War?). A large number of articles in the list are American celebrities and films. I have not heard about many of them even though I watch Hollywood films and interested in US politics. It is very unlikely that a Gujarati reader would be interested in such topics. It seems strange that these topics are listed as most searched Gujarati topics. Some articles in the list already have Gujarati articles. For example, Makar Sankranti.

I am interested in writing articles on educational subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Quantum Mechanics, Particle Physics, Philosophy, Western Literature and its Theory, Indian Literature and its theory, Psychology, History etc. The lists you provided ignore these educational topics as well topics our local language (Gujarati) users most likely interested. I think educational topics can be more helpful to readers and students alike. I, myself being a Chemistry student, know that how helpful it can be to students so I want to contribute in these educational subjects. If a contest is focused on these and other educational subjects, it will be very helpful to people. I would be contributing more to these subjects due to my access to public libraries and having a large educational library. I would also provide other community members through recently opened resource exchange in Gujarati Wikipedia. So I kindly request to create a new list of India centred topics, topics of local language reader interest and educational topics for the Article Writing Contest. I would like to invite members of Gujarati Wikipedia community, @Nizil Shah:, @KartikMistry:, @Aniket: and @Dsvyas: for inputs. Thank you. --Gazal world (talk) 13:15, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

I agree with Gazal world here. For me also, most of the topics seem picked from a popular article on enwiki which most likely won't be popular in Indic wikis. --KartikMistry (talk) 13:27, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
I also find most topics in list useless for the readers of Indic languages. --Nizil Shah (talk) 13:43, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

@Gazal world:, thanks for your feedback. We will try if we can provide more topics on the subjects you have expressed interest. For articles that already exist, the community can consider expanding the content and improving the quality. --Ravi (talk) 13:22, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

I agree with the points @Gazal world: has raised and thank him for bringing this to my attention. There are many articles listed here, which aready exist in gu.wiki and around 90% are non-relevant to Gujarati readers as a priority. Of course, one can argue that all articles must be in all languages, but we should make our priorities sorted first.
@RAyyakkannu (WMF):, instead of adding more topics here in this list of non-useful topics, we should aim to get list sourced from more reliable searches/data. I don't know what crieteria were used to determine that these are most searched topics in Gujarati, whether that was any on wiki research or google analytics, etc. To me, the list here seems redundant, we need to rather create a new list for Gujarati. You might want to consider checking with other languages as well on what they feel for the topics listed.--DhavalTalk 13:54, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
There is more feedback from other communities here. Let us continue the discussion there. --Ravi (talk) 21:24, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Baldev singh (hockey coach) A coach par excellence[edit]

Ask any hockey lover about Baldev Singh and he will sing paeans about his dedication and love towards the game. It's no surprise, considering the fact that he has been successfully coaching and guiding various teams since 1995. And it's just because of him that Haryana has emerged as a powerhouse in women's hockey. Based in Shahabad, Kurukshetra, he was running a nursery at SNGP Senior Secondary School, there.As a retired deputy director in Haryana Sports Department, Baldev was running the nursery literally out of his pocket. It's to his credit that most of the players of the Haryana team come from his centre. After seeing his efforts, the government started providing diet money of Rs 50 to the trainees. And what a run they have had at the national level in the past few years. In fact, they have all the trophies at the junior and sub-junior levels in their cupboard and were runners-up at the senior national championship. Baldev has produced about 40 international players who represented India in all age groups. His State team even once jointly won the Senior National Championship. Besides grooming the rural talent, he also takes care of the welfare of these underprivileged girls and helps them in getting jobs. His products include such stars as Surinder Kaur, Jasjeet Kaur, Suman Bala… to quote a few. Puninder (talk) 08:07, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Onsite edit-a-thon[edit]

As part of the Project Tiger Writing Contest, we welcome communities and user groups to play an active role in outreach.

One way we see this happening is to conduct onsite edit-a-thons in various cities inviting the local communities to gather for a day or two and write articles for the Project Tiger contest. We hope that face-to-face onsite edit-a-thons might be a good way for the community members to meet and work on this contest. If you are planning to have an onsite edit-a-thon for Project Tiger, we would be glad to financial and programmatic support. We would be excited to learn more creative ways of encouraging participation in this contest.

Please contact tito at cis-india.org for more details.

Also please create a new level 3 section below in this format:

Hello, I'm a young lad from Assam.I regret that the Assamese language is not included in the list.It's our privilege to say that Assamese is one of the prominent and beautiful languages spoken by more than 20 million people in Assam and Northeastern India, as well as in different parts of the world due to the advancement of modern aviation and transportation facilities. So, my request for the admin of Wikimedia and the authorities worldwide /organizations to give the same respect to this language as it's given to the other languages in the world. Thank You.

Sujhav or suggestions[edit]

How to save jungles by not destroying, but making the forest a home for animals? Poojarawatrajpoot (talk) 17:54, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

Hello Wikipedia, first of all, I would like to say thanks to you for giving us the opportunity to work with you. I am Nandini Nivedita from Delhi.I am a final year student of political science, graduating from Delhi university. As a student, I feel we should focus on some highly updated information in Wikipedia, which will help the people to know some valid facts in various topics. Yes, Wikipedia also can help Indian people read these articles in their native languages. नमस्कार हिंदी में लिखने वालों के लिए क्या व्यवस्था है??? अनुवाद भी निश्चित ही आवश्यक है जिससे हिंदी में गुणात्मक रूप से बेहतर सामग्री उपलब्ध हो।

Adding Topic in Marathi Language (Musical Art Form Kirtan)[edit]

Hello, I am very happy to know about the Article Writing Contest and I am very keen on participating. But I did not find the suitable Topic for the subject on which I am working. I am working on a research project for an ancient art form known as 'Kirtan' (कीर्तन) in Marathi. It is a musical art form which involves reciting and describing a spiritual or religious story. More can be read on the already existing page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirtan I want to add more information and some reference links (on which I am working) where one can get detail information about the kirtan format and how to perform it. I want to add all this information in Marathi.

== Suggestions == please add assamese language which is the state language of Assam

What are the topics??? Is it based on current affairs??? Miral Maradiya (talk) 02:35, 17 April 2018 (UTC)

Urdu Language[edit]

We request you to add Urdu language in this since there are many translators all around the globe who can contribute in a large amount and more people will be able to access wiki. There are over 100 million native speakers of Urdu in India (more than 80% of it) and Pakistan together.~Wikipedia. A wide percentage of People all over the world speak urdu.Please take every cultural aspect into consideration. Please grant our humble request.

Thanks

hinduism or hindutav[edit]

Hinduism is the basic feeling or believe of anybody towards their religion. If i am a Hindu ,i will support hinduism or hindutva ,i will advertise the propoganda of my religion. If i will fail in doing that chances are there when people will through me out of my religion. In India Everyone has an ideology ,on that idelogy they move on. Yogi Aidtyanath is Chiefminister of India's biggest state 'Uttar Pradesh' .once he told in Assembly , "i am a hindu and i will celebrate Eid". From this statement it was clear that his hinduism. In India there are many political organisation like RSS,VHP e.t.c Their work is that they spread the propoganda of Hinduism ,somewhere it leads to rise a communal fights but it's okay.Like Swami Vivekananda has delivered his speech in Chicago about the Hinduism. Not only Indians many of people who belongs to other country they change their religion to Hindu. Because they are aware of what is hinduism ,how it functions,how you will be going to change to your rest of life? .

Mother's Care[edit]

To deal with your kid is an art and only the mother is blessed with this ability. Kids are sensitive and the only mother can understand and deal with it. She has the knowledge about her kid and only she will be able to understand the child's needs without a single word said. She cares about her kid like no others do. Only the mother can deal with their kids during their strange behaviour and changes. How to handle kids in different situations can be explained as follows;

Font support missing, so Project Tiger a wasted effort[edit]

I am on Firefox 54.0 (64-bit) on Lubuntu 16.10, and despite being a software developer, for the life of me I could not figure out in 10 long minutes how to get the Kannada writing on some of your Wiki pages into human-readable form, all I see are squares for each letter, with weird junk in it. I ran into some pages which claimed to provide comprehensive support for language fonts, but they did no such thing.

If reading Kannada on wiki pages is so difficult for a software person, is a regular reader going to bother reading them? Why then bother creating the pages?

Can there not be put in place some automatic font support by Wikipedia?

I think your Project Tiger is a waste until people can see Wiki pages in Indian languages just as easily they can see Wiki pages in English, i.e., with NO additional steps of installing fonts and so on.

Urdu Language[edit]

Respected Organizaers,

We humbly request you to include URDU language also.

URDU has a rich multi culture history and spoken in many large parts of India and across the world as well.

Please do not ignore this rich and beautiful language.

Thanks Malik Mohiuddin Bidar, India.

Yes I also request the organizers to include the Urdu language, as it is the second language of India and widely spoken India regions and across.

Hindi Topics[edit]

Dear Organisers, hello, I wrote an article on The wolverine (film) given on topics list and it has very poor page view statics(<10), I also wrote an article on Suzuki Hayabusa which is not given on the list, and it has much larger pageview statics(>30).

These facts suggest that there is/was something wrong with the priority system and can result in ineffectiveness of Project Tiger Editathon 2018 on Hindi Wikipedia! Thanks --Navinsingh133 (talk) 18:56, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
