For mni[change source]

For mni Wikipedia, I decided to take part in the "Wiki Loves Women South Asia". Here's the main page I have recently created. mni:ꯋꯤꯀꯤꯄꯦꯗꯤꯌꯥ:ꯋꯤꯀꯤꯅ ꯅꯨꯡꯁꯤ ꯈꯥ ꯑꯦꯁꯤꯌꯥꯒꯤ ꯅꯨꯄꯤꯁꯤꯡ/꯲꯰꯲꯱ What are the other things I should do? Haoreima (talk) 14:27, 12 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  1. You should say "hooray for me!"
  2. You should go to the main page on Meta and add the mni Wikipedia to the list of communities: [1]
  3. You should make a Fountain Page for the mni.wiki part of the contest: [2]
  4. You should make a template {{WLW2021}}
  5. You should go to the mni.wiki's Village Pump or biggest talk page and ask for other mni.wikipedians to be jurors/judges and contest participants.
Good luck! Darkfrog24 (talk) 16:37, 12 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I have done all except no. 2 and no. 3. Because none are joining till now (though some assured me that they will join). But can I, besides being a local organizer, participate in the contest (for which I don't have to join jury members)? Haoreima (talk) 04:24, 13 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I do not know for sure because I am not one of the main organizers at Meta (definitely ask them), but I do not think so, especially because you would be judging your own work. I am not submitting my own articles to the contest, and there IS another juror who could mark them. Darkfrog24 (talk) 10:47, 13 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Absolutely, and even if such permission is granted, still, we can't run the contest as none is joining still now. Mni's case is exactly like her Urdu counterpart ur:ویکیپیڈیا:ویکی محبوب خواتین، جنوبی ایشیا 2021ء. I am so sorry, no hurrah, but still thank you for informing me about such great event. Haoreima (talk) 13:47, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Would it help if we wrote Simple English articles here on Simple and then people at Mni translated those insted of en.wiki's? I just did Medusa with the Head of Perseus in Simple English. Darkfrog24 (talk) 13:51, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I don't know what people in mni think about this idea as none is participating till now. But let's inform this to @Awangba Mangang, Luwanglinux, Afingba Mangang, ꯴꯰꯴, ApakNga: (some mni Wikipedians whose accounts exist in simple wiki too) to know about their opinion about this new plan! Haoreima (talk) 15:39, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hey Darkfrog! I saw the "female legendary creatures" is mentioned in the WLW2021 page. Regarding that case, are Lai Khutsangbi and Yenakha Paodabi eligible for the contest? I am little bit confused, because these legendary creatures are females of South Asia but not related to women's empowerment! Haoreima (talk) 13:12, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
The main organizers said "female legendary creatures," so I say "female legendary creatures." Women's empowerment is also about representation.
Imagine you are watching a kids' cartoon and all the monsters are male OR there are only one or two female monsters and they're both the sexy type. Not good, right? They did this with the Minions movies not long ago: all the Minions were dudes. Darkfrog24 (talk) 13:25, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
So, do you mean "yes"? Are they eligible? Haoreima (talk) 13:54, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Haoreima: Yes! Very eligible! Darkfrog24 (talk) 15:20, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wiki Loves Women South Asia 2021[change source]

@Darkfrog24: I am a participant of Wiki Loves Women South Asia 2021. I have created a page on Savitribai Phule in my sandbox[3]. Please let me know who is going to review my page and how can I enter my name on fountain under this comptition.--Prajjwal3959 (talk) 13:03, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Prajjwal3959:
1) ImprovedWikiImprovement or myself will mark it for the purposes of the contest.
2) You can put the article into Fountain by moving it to mainspace and posting {{WLW2021}} on its talk page.
3) The article must follow all of Simple's own rules. Right now, the English is regular English, not simple English. Darkfrog24 (talk) 14:22, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Darkfrog24: I am unable to move my page [4] from sandbox. I don't know why is it. Can you please move it on my behalf after reviewing. Suggestions are welcome.--Prajjwal3959 (talk) 04:56, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Prajjwal3959: You are unable to move as you are a new user. Please wait 2 more days and make at least 30 good edits. If you think it is really ready enough, please request a move from any (auto)confirmed user.

Patrolling[change source]

I noticed that you marked Fireflies (film) as patrolled. (It has since been moved to Fireflies (movie).) However, that article still needed and still needs work. Some of the issues are:

  • It needs simplifying.
  • It needs copy editing for grammar, unclear phrasing, and formatting (for example, unnecessary use of bolding in the article).
  • It needs better categorization. For example, it's about a movie, but there is no movie-related category on it.
  • The two sections at the end are in the wrong order; the references section comes before the other websites section.

I'm not sure what things you check when you patrol, but these things need to be considered before marking articles as patrolled. If you aren't going to take care of them yourself, you could at least flag the article as needing attention. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:18, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

(talk page stalker) Darkfrog24 Don't worry, Darkfrog! I will solve all these issues very soon, if possible, by taking help from every possibly able people. But I have a question for you. If an article is already submitted to fountain before end of September, but not accepted due to some complexity of the language, then if we redevelop it better (after September ends), is that article still eligible for the WLW? Haoreima (talk) 12:17, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, Haoreima, we are to re-mark the contest entries if they are improved by the end of September 29. @Auntof6:, that's why I'm doing things a little differently here: Per Simple's rules, I could just go in and do the simplification process myself, but per the Wiki Loves Women 2021 contest rules, I'm not. As of October 1, I'm free to do simplification, etc. myself, as usual. Darkfrog24 (talk) 12:24, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
By the end of September 29? Do you mean articles redeveloped after September 29 aren't accepted? Is that what you mean? I don't understand! Haoreima (talk) 12:39, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
The contest ends at midnight UTC on September 29. ImprovedWikiImprovement and I have until the end of October to mark all the entries, but the contestants only have until the end of September to make their entries. Darkfrog24 (talk) 12:43, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I mean for example, Ima Keithel is submitted before September 29 but not accepted. If I redeveloped this after September 29, will it be accepted for the contest? Haoreima (talk) 12:45, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I don't think so, but just to be sure, I'll ask at the Meta page. I think you have to do all the work during September. After that, the only prize you can win is the satisfaction of making an excellent article on feminism for the Simple English Wikipedia's readers. Darkfrog24 (talk) 12:49, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Sure! Waiting for your reply! Haoreima (talk) 12:51, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry, I meant to say midnight on September 30. I asked over at Meta. [6] Auntof6, I thought about what you said, and I'll be even more careful about patrol standards during the contest. Darkfrog24 (talk) 12:53, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It doesn't have anything to do with the contest. Those things need to be checked all the time. The purpose of patrolling is to make sure a page is in good shape and has everything it should. If it doesn't, the options are to fix it, tag it, or leave it unpatrolled. If you aren't prepared to do that, then you don't need to patrol. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:48, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, that's more or less what I said. Don't worry. We're on the same page. Darkfrog24 (talk) 22:24, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Login issue[change source]

I saw problem in logging in for the fountain page of simple English right now. How shall it be fixed? Haoreima (talk) 14:43, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Darkfrog24: Please resolve this problem as soon as possible.--Prajjwal3959 (talk) 15:42, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Fountaion issue has been fixed[change source]

@Darkfrog24: As fountain issue has been fixed, should we now upload our articles that have not been submitted yet?--Prajjwal3959 (talk) 08:19, 3 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, you should. The organizers at Meta say you have until October 3 to do this. Darkfrog24 (talk) 10:57, 3 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you so much Darkfrog24.--Prajjwal3959 (talk) 16:02, 3 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
