The Discoverer (चर्चायोगदान)

The pages in the Category:Konkani-Inglez Utravoll/Xobdkox were from the beginning intended to be part of the Konkani Wiktionary. They had been retained in the Konkani Wikipedia since there was no Konkani Wiktionary project. Now that a Konkani Wiktionary project has been started in the Wikimedia Incubator, the entries which were in this category have been added there.

Since these entries have content which is basically translation from Konkani into English and Portuguese, they are not suitable for the Wikipedia, which should be entirely in Konkani. Therefore, I intend to delete from the Wikipedia the pages of the entries that have been moved to the Wiktionary. Pages which have grown to include content in addition to a dictionary entry, and pages whose entire content has not been transferred, will not be deleted.

Please let me know if you have any objection to the proposed deletion.

There was a discussion on the Goa WIkimedia Group (on WhatsApp) recently, about setting up a possible Konkani online dictionary. To create a focus group on this subject, a Wiktionary-Konkani focussed group has just been set up on WhatsApp. Its members are Ananth, @The Discoverer, @Konknni mogi 24 @Banduji @Isidore Dantas1, , @Darshan kandolkar (among others). Kindly join and popularise.

Dear allː

We have seen some growth of interest in promoting the Wikipedia coverage of Goa (in all languages, specially Konkani, but also English and other languages) in recent weeks. To continue this trend and take it forward, I am suggesting that we launch a 'Wikipedians of Goa User Group'.

My suggestion is that we keep the focus on 'Goa', and inclusive of all languages. This will help us to (i) build content in any language we are comfortable in (ii) translate more relevant and useful content into Konkani (iii) get more easily the numbers of volunteers required for an activity of this kind and (iv) support one another (across language, scripts, the techie-non-techie divide, the language expert-newbie gap) in this manner.

Please see the requirements to form such a group. It is well explained hereː https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_user_groups

To start with, we need at least three Wikipedia volunteers who have more than three hundred (300) edits to their credit. I am volunteering to be one. Also, permit me to request all those who have been active (or are active) on the Wikipedia to join this initial group.

Please share your ideas, suggestions and comments. Pass on this note to anyone else who might be intested, so that they could comment and suggest too. Many thanks in advance, let's see how it goes. --FN

Some of us on the recently activated "Goa Wikipedia Group" (an informal network via WhatsApp) are hosting a Goa Mini Edit-a-Thon on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 1 pm to 5 pm at the Krishnadas Shama Central Library cybersection (first floor) at Pato, Panjim, Goa. Everyone interested is cordially invited.

The intention is to (i) promote more Goa-related content on the Wikipedias (all languages and scripts) (ii) promote Konkani and translations specially on the Konkani Wikipedia (iii) build closer networking and eventually a wider community of Wikipedia contributors, editors and supporters in Goa.

Isidore Dantas, lexicographer and translator from Pune, is visiting Goa and we expect to have him with us for part of the evening.

You are welcome to drop in at any stage, though obviously the more time you could give it, the better.

There will be no formal talks or discussions, but just hands-on contribution to the creation of new Wikipedia pages, adding content where needed to existing pages, and translating pages from say English (or any other language) to Konkani where suitable.

What you could do to contribute (whether you can attend or not)ː

(i) Create a Wikipedia login for the Konkani (httpː//gom.wikipedia.org), English (httpː//en.wikipedia.org) or any other language you are skilled in.

(ii) Bring photos on a pen drive which you are willing to upload and share with the Wikimedia Commons, specially Goa-related photos. (You will be agreeing to share it under a Creative Commons or such license.)

(iii) Plan the pages which you would like to work on -- create from scratch, add to, translate.

(iv) If you have only tech skills but no language skills (in any language you wish to contribute to), then please try to link up with someone who has the talent to complement and supplement your own.

(v) Even if you can't make it for the event, you could do all of the above. We will try -- bandwidth permitting -- to have some form of live video reporting from there.

(vi) Bandwidth costs a reasonable Rs 20 per hour; if you can sponsor the work of any other editor, please consider. Also, feel free to bring along any healthy snacks to be shared at a designated space and keep spirits high.

We are determined to get this going, even if we have two or three persons meeting up.

Please volunteer to act as the 'team leader' to create (or build up) a page on a village or urban area you are associated with. Bring along some photos of the place, we can work it out.

Pass the word around to anyone who might be interestedǃ Everyone can together do more.

To join the WhatsApp group to discuss Goa Wikipedia content issues, contact me on my phone number below.

Thank you very much. If you can make it, please mention in a note below.



PSː Also likely to attendː Fr Luis, Darshan, Isidore Dantas, Animesh Nerurkar.
