Dear WAM organizer,
I’m Erick, the coordinator of WAM 2017. Thanks for your effort and help at Wikipedia Asian Month 2017! Here are some more information about organizational matter of the event at a national level.
You are receiving this message because you have signed up as a organizer or in the list.
The event has started and will end in the November 30th 23:59 (UTC). However, we are late for some matter. So we need your help:
- Invite previous participants and your community members to join. We have a template you can use.
- Translate Central Notice for your community (more instruction below) as well as sending a notice in village pump. Go public!
- Become the jury member in a campaign on Fountain which is an amazing tool for you to supervise participants’ articles. If you don’t have the campaign set up, please contact us! And put a link to your community’s campaign page for participants’ navigation.
- Organize a off-site editathon event. A coffee bar, internet and laptops. Though it’s optional. If you want to do that, please contact me.
In the following days, you should answer the questions from your community and supervise the submissions. Hope you have fun!
- Prepare Central Notice
Central Notice shows a banner on the top of pages in your wiki project along the event timeframe. We will use this to engage with audience. Steps:
- Translate, change logo and link to event page. Find your project's Central Notice here. For example, we can change the banner for Chinese Wikipedia here.
- When you mark the 4 items (translation) as done. I'll enable the central notice in your language for this month.
