From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

हम विकिपीडिया को बेहतर व उपयोगी बनाना चाहते हैं, और हमें आपकी सहायता की आवश्यकता है!

गुणवत्ता की आवश्यकता है. हमें आवश्यकता है - दुनिया भर के प्रौद्योगविज्ञयों, परीक्षकों, संपादक व दान देने वाले लोगों की ताकि हम इन्हें एकत्र कर सकें और वे अपनी समर्र्थताओं द्वारा हमे उन्नतिशील तरीके दिखा सकें जिनसे हम विकिपीडिया और बन्धुजन परियोजनाओं की परिशुधता में सुधर ला सकें. अगर आप विकिपीडिया को और उपयोगी बनने में हमारी मदद करना चाहते हैं, तो आगे पढ़ें.

आप क्या कर सकते हैं: विकिमेडिया फाउंडेशन को दान दे सकते हैं

विकिपीडिया एक निर्लाभ व समाज सेवक संस्था द्वारा चलाया जाता है, विकिमेडिया फाउंडेशन. हमें आर्थिक समर्थन देकर, आप हमें प्रतिभूत कर रहे हैं - भविष्य के लिए ताकि हम अपने प्रगतिशील अनुसंधान व बहुमात्र एकीकरण में अर्थसिद्धि प्राप्त कर सकें.

आप क्या कर सकते हैं: Test article version tagging

We want to allow a subset of trusted users to identify revisions of articles that have been checked for basic vandalism and accuracy. To do this, we are working on a software extension called Flagged Revisions.

A first, unofficial demonstration is hosted here: http://wikixp.org/qa/. Please note that this server can only cope with limited traffic and may have to be taken down.

A larger public beta (using dummy content) for you to test will go live in the coming days. See more information about this feature and our current deployment plans.

What you can do: Try Prof. Luca de Alfaro's trust coloring demo

Luca de Alfaro is an Associate Professor of Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He is leading a research team to study the patterns in Wikipedia article histories. His team has created a demonstration which colorizes Wikipedia articles according to a value of trust, computed from the reputation of the authors who contributed and edited the text.

The Wikimedia Foundation is supporting Luca's work, and is considering different ways in which it could be usefully integrated into Wikipedia. Try Luca's demo, and send us your thoughts on the wikiquality-l mailing list.

What you can do: Edit the wiki. :-)

Wikipedia is and will remain open to editing. If you have never contributed to Wikipedia before, please visit our introduction for new editors. If you know how to edit Wikipedia but are wondering what to do, the community portal provides many links to get started. Why not join a WikiProject, for example, to systematically improve articles about a topic you know about?

What you can do: Share your ideas - and source code!

We've discussed methods for systematic quality improvements ever since Wikipedia got started. If you want to join these discussions, you can subscribe to wikiquality-l, a mailing list dedicated to these issues. If you are a PHP programmer, this is also a mailing list where people can point you to areas where you can make a difference. Finally, please see our wikipage of ideas, to see if your idea has been discussed before. If not: Why not edit the wiki and add it?

About Wikipedia

Wikipedia logo
Wikipedia logo

Since Wikipedia was launched in January 2001, our global community of volunteers has written more than 6 million encyclopedia articles in 250 languages.

Wikipedia is free of charge, free of advertising, and free to use for any purpose: We believe that knowledge should have no boundaries, and that education is a fundamental human right. That's why Wikipedia is run by a charity, the Wikimedia Foundation.

We want to build your trust.

Wikipedia is a very unusual encyclopedia, updated in real-time by anyone. We want to make it as transparent as possible to you how many people have looked at a given article, and to what conclusion they have come about its quality. That does not mean that we want to abandon the fundamental principles of mass collaboration: low barriers to entry and flat, meritocratic hierarchies.

But when you look at a Wikipedia article, we want to tell you exactly what it is you are seeing. Think of it as food labeling for information. Without these labels, please always double-check, look at article histories, and follow sources where indicated.

Wikipedia belongs to all of us. Let's work together in making it the best encyclopedia it can be.
