Policy discussions[edit]

Click to read/download the book

A couple of months ago CIS-A2K published an Indic Wikipedia policies and guidelines handbook in order to support Indic Wikipedians to improve their policy portals. Before and after the publication of the handbook we talked to Indic Wikipedians and asked how should we go ahead with this works and these are the suggestions we have received so far:

  1. Core content and other important policy pages should be created;
  2. Regular policy discussions should take place which will help to collaborate understand a community's needs.

If you have any suggestion or idea, or if you want to prioritize any particular policy, please let us know. Thanks for your support.
