Frogs 2[change source]

Hiya, hope you had a happy holiday period. Quick question, do you know roughly how many different frogs there are? Just curious :) fr33kman 21:31, 14 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Estimated on Earth? Five digits. AmphibiaWeb has individual pages for 7,679 species (including toads as frogs), but so many are not yet known to science and are likely to die of climate change before anyone writes papers about them. Why? Darkfrog24 (talk) 21:33, 14 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You never seem to run out of frogs so I was just wondering how many different ones are out there. :) fr33kman 21:36, 14 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am not worried about running out, no. Darkfrog24 (talk) 21:37, 14 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Invitation to Organize Feminism and Folklore 2024 Writing Competition[change source]

Please help translate to your language

Dear Darkfrog24,

Hope you are doing well, Wishing you a Happy New Year!.

We extend a heartfelt invitation to you to organize the Feminism and Folklore 2024 writing competition, which is scheduled to take place from February 1, 2024, to March 31, 2024. This year's edition of Feminism and Folklore will concentrate on feminism, women's issues, and gender-focused topics, aligning with a Wiki Loves Folklore gender gap focus and featuring a folk culture theme on Wikipedia.

This year we have created two new Tools for the Feminism and Folklore project. The tool is called Campwiz. This tool is created by the international Tech team of Wiki Loves Folkore especially crafted for Feminism and Folklore project. The tool works as same as fountain or dashboard but has extra abilities required for jury and submission of articles.

To create a new campaign on Campwiz, organizers to follow these steps:

  1. Go to the tool link: https://tools.wikilovesfolklore.org/
  2. Select your wiki on which you want to organize the campaign (enter the name or short code, such as "en" for English Wikipedia).
  3. Give your campaign a name example "Feminism and Folklore 2024 on English Wikipedia)".
  4. Select the start and end dates (note: keep your start date as Feb 1 and end date as March 31).
  5. Provide a description for your campaign (you can briefly describe the campaign in this section).
  6. Make sure to keep the checkboxes ticked for "Allow users to submit articles that were not created but expanded." if you want to use the campaign for expanded articles also.
  7. Keep minimum added bytes as 4000 and minimum added words as 400 and click next.
  8. In the jury section, keep the checkboxes ticked for "Allow jury members to participate in the campaign" and "Prevent jury members from seeing each other's votes." As per your preference.
  9. Under the jury search box, type the username of your jury and click on the "+" button to add; you can add multiple jury members.
  10. Click next to review and then click on save.

With this we have also created a Missing article tool. This tool identifies articles in the English Wikipedia that are absent from your native language Wikipedia. You can customize your selection criteria, and our tool will provide you with a table displaying the missing articles along with suggested titles. You also have the option to download the list in both CSV and wikitable formats.

Both tools, the Missing Article Tool and the Campwiz Tool, are now available for public use during the Feminism and Folklore campaign. You can find more information about these tools here: https://tools.wikilovesfolklore.org/

There are also some changes in the rules and criteria's. Please go through the rules below.

  1. Minimum Length: The expanded or new article should have a minimum of 4000 bytes or 400 words, ensuring sufficient depth and coverage of the chosen topic. The local organizers are free to choose the minimum length criteria as per needs of their local Wikipedia and must be clearly mention on local project page.
  2. Language Quality: Articles should not be poorly machine-translated, ensuring that language quality and readability are maintained at a high standard.
  3. Timeline of Creation or Expansion: The article should be created or expanded between 1 February and 31 March, aligning with the specified contest timeline.
  4. Theme Relevance: Articles should directly address the theme of feminism and folklore, exploring connections between gender, cultural traditions, and intangible heritage.
  5. No Orphaned Articles: Articles must not be orphaned, meaning they should be linked from at least one other article to ensure visibility within the Wikipedia ecosystem.
  6. No Copyright violations: There should be no copyright violations, and articles should adhere to local Wikipedia policies on notability, ensuring that the content meets the standards for notability.
  7. Adequate references and Citations: Each article should include proper references and citations following local Wikipedia policies, ensuring the reliability and credibility of the information presented.

Learn more about the contest details and prizes on our project page here. Should you require any assistance, please feel free to contact us on our meta talk page or via email.

We eagerly anticipate your enthusiastic coordination and participation in Feminism and Folklore 2024.

Thank you and Best wishes,

Feminism and Folklore 2024 International Team

This intrigues me, but the past few times there were problems with contributors getting the prizes they'd been promised. I'd like to know what you've done about this, even if it's only "We no longer promise a prize." Darkfrog24 (talk) 12:39, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
