Defining a quality image uploaded to Wikimedia Commons by users
Key aspect Definition Defining quality through WMAR's point of view
Main aspects of an image uploaded Images/books main requirements Images/books are uploaded by a Wikimedia Commons's user
Images/books are uploaded under free licence.
Images/books must have a meaningful name

Authorship should be located in the image's description
Technical aspects Main technical aspects to approach to a quality image WMAR defines a quality images, those with at least 1280 x 960 of resolution. However this does not mean that WMAR will accept images with enough resolution to allow illustrate articles, particulary in cases where there are no alternative or replacement. Regarding these images, quality would be defined by the image's topic coverage.
To avoid unnecessary or inappropriate use of artistic filters and effects
Every important object on the picture should be sharp, considering the idea of the image
Images should be currently exposed
Topic coverage To define quality by covering a specific topic aligned with WMAR's main targets. WMAR will encourage the upload of images/books related to the cross-cutting strategic objetive of building a historical and cultural memory in Argentina, as per example:

Gender approach[edit]

Quality measurement in terms of gender approach[edit]

How we measure quality in terms of gender approach within an article?
Content
  • Title: To name a woman’s article by her maiden name and then clarify whether she acquired a married name in the article.
  • Women are not defined by their status as a male companion: the reference to being a woman, daughter, mother or wife may appear in the personal life section, but not necessarily in the introduction. Start introductions by describing her contributions, activities and achievements, not her gender, or family status.
  • Do not use the term "woman of", use "husband and wife" or "husband" or "partner" or "partners" according to the circumstances. You can say "is married to someone" instead of "is the wife of" because a woman does not belong to a man.
  • Do not give prominence to the civil status of the biographee. This data may be mentioned in the body of the article, as it is done in the biographies of men.
  • Do not use the term "female" in the description: eg female writer, women's writing.
  • Do not use nicknames as Amalita or Anita and name the biographee by his surname, as it is done in the biographies of men
Within the text
  • The article contains support visual materials where appropriate:Illustrations are encouraged, though not required
  • The article is suitably categorized: highly recommended
  • The article contains support visual materials where appropriate:Illustrations are encouraged and required
  • The article is suitably categorized: The article is at least categorized under one category. The categories also have a gender perspective.
Topics Gender topics. Not only biographies but also paradigms of feminism that improve the understanding of gender in Wikipedia.
When do we use this quality approach? Specific editing women contests.
Workshops, congress and events where Wikimedia Argentina is involved
How we measure quality in terms of gender approach in projects or activities?

All the projects and activities are evaluated by these metrics:

  • Number of students participating
  • Number of female educators
  • Number of female ambassadors
  • Number of women who follow WMAR’s activities to the end
  • Number of female volunteers
  • Retention of female editors
  • Number of press releases/blog on the subject of gender
  • Number of articles improved through quality and gender indicators
  • Female speakers (%)
  •  % of women taking responsibility in the development of activities
  • They take part in the calls for initiatives at community level

Human Rights and Argentine culture promotion approach[edit]

Quality measurement in terms of Human Rights and Argentine culture promotion[edit]

How we measure quality in terms of Human Rights and Argentine culture promotion?
Content

Human Rights

  • Introducing the historical context referring to the events as Crimes against Humanity in the first parragraph.
  • Referring to the period with categories like State terrorism, civil-military dictatorship, avoiding referring to the period with personal terminology that may lead to a bias affecting the content.
  • Using secondary sources that make reference to current research on the period. Using research done by Human Rights organizations as a frame.
  • Using primary sources that make reference to national trials and verdicts, governmental decisions, treaties in the frame of the international system of protection and promotion of Human Rights (UN and OAS)
  • In the case of biographies of Disappeared Detainees, one must refer to the person pointing out his/her participation in political organizations of the time without using words such as “subversive”, since that term was used by the civil-military dictatorship to condemn social activism.

Argentine culture promotion

  • Define the origin of the cultural tradition that is being described in the first paragraph.
  • If the articles are translated from the Spanish Wikipedia, maintain the nomenclature of origin.
  • Understand the term of culture as traditions, gastronomy and distinguished people from Argentine history.
  • If possible, avoid comparisons with other cultural tradition out of context
Within the text
