[Wikimediaindia-l] Indic language Wikisource Skill Share

Hi Indian Wikisource Community,

As COVID-19 has forced the Wikimedia communities to stay at home and like many other affiliates, CIS-A2K has decided to suspend all offline activities till 15th September 2020 (or till further notice).I present to you for an online training session for future coming months

  1. Wikisource Skill Share,[1] a capacity-building initiative, where Indic Wikisource contributors, both newcomers and experienced, can share knowledge and skills with each other and clear confusions. Most of the time, it will be done online on 1:1 basis, so it is just the right time to participate there if you have not planned to do it or done it already. Let’s learn Wikisource together! I would like to invite experienced Indic Wikisource contributors and sign your name at Willing to respond section [2]. Newcomer or any Indic Wikisource contributors are welcome to join the session with your queries and doubts.

  2. Intensive Personalized Training (or IPT),[3] this also a capacity-building initiative, where Indic Wikisource contributors, especially newcomers could come with his/her queries and doubts. I, myself will share my knowledge and skills with each contributor and clear confusions. It will be done online on a 1:1 basis, so it is just the right time to participate there if you have not planned to do so.

  3. Online Proofread-edithon for all 12 Indic Wikisource language projects. We are planning for an indic level online proofreadthon from 1 May 2020 to 10 May 2020. The book of the subject will be the classical literature of your languages. We’ll share details about this in a separate email in a couple of days.

Wonderful initiatives, Jayanta da!

I am particularly looking forward to the 12 language Wikisource Proofread-a-thon which will be a first of it’s kind.

Dear Jayanta Da,

Hope my mail finds you in the best of heath and spirit. I am very much interested to have an “Intensive Personalized Training” from you at an earliest date and time. Do kindly share your options of date and time slot.



Hi Rajeeb,

Sorry for the late reply. I am very busy in coming few days regarding our Indic Wikisource Proofredthon. We coulda schedule one Intensive Personalized Training on Wikisource at this weekend. Please do the same request on the page. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Indic_Wikisource_Helpdesk/Intensive_Personalized_Training.
