Physical rewards / postcards[edit]


does the participation incentive in the guise of physical postcards (that I and my family value as nice surprise from distant lands and also as collectibles) return for this year? I regretted their absence last year... Regards, Grand-Duc (talk) 18:36, 16 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

Ich habe die Option auch vermisst, sich eine Postkarte schicken zu lassen. --Sebastian Wallroth (talk) 15:16, 22 October 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hi Grand-Duc and Sebastian Wallroth
I am sorry that due to overload of internation postmail system and handelling multiple back and forth posting error, the current WAM international team fo the have the capacity to maintain hard copy postcards as rewards. We encourage local organizor to provide more tangible reward. And if you have any suggestion on resolving the challenge, please leave a comment.

"For the tracking of editing existing article, the international team is currently designing a form"[edit]

Hi, I'm the developer of Fountain. It is possible to use Fountain for adding existing articles. Option 1 is to create a separate editathon, option 2 is to simply just make the "new article" rule optional. Editing forms is usually very tedious; that's why I made Fountain in the first place: to avoid forms. Le Loy (talk) 07:32, 17 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Le Loy, nice to hear from you again. I wonder what would happen if we choose option 2, simply make the "new article" rule optional. Reke created a google form reporting process in the interim. Joycewikiwiki (talk) 02:11, 1 November 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hi @Joycewikiwiki! In this case, Fountain will accept all articles. If we also tick the "show in the jury tool" option, the jury will see an indicator at the top of the tool: if the article is new, the creation date will be grey, otherwise it will be red (which means they have to manually check the page history to see if the improvements are substantial enough).

Hi @Le Loy, speaking of Fountain tool, I cannot login. It is giving me a Application Exception - Mono.Btls.MonoBtlsException. I hope you can resolve this. Thanks. --Jojit (talk) 06:45, 4 November 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hi @Jojit fb! Oops, sorry for that. Could you please try again? Le Loy (talk) 07:32, 4 November 2023 (UTC)Reply
@Le Loy, it is working now. Thanks. --Jojit (talk) 08:10, 4 November 2023 (UTC)Reply


Hello everyone,

I just submitted a CentralNotice request to promote the Wikipedia Asian Month on French-speaking edition (that I am currently setting up) ; any help from the international team will be appreciated. (I just saw that a similar request have been done in Czech, so I also put the link below.)
