[11:51, 11/18/2018] FN 9822122436: After that, Denzil S. in Pune got in touch and we discussed a lot of issues, including (i) Old contributors like Deepak D'Souza (ii) his neighbour Alister Miranda from Siolim, and requesting him to contribute photos (iii) Joel DSouza's (Assagao) huge contribution of photos on Goa and whether we could request the family to donate the same to the Wikimedia Commons (iv) Asking JoeGoaUk to share some of his lovely pics via the Wikipedia (v) Attribution clause on Wikimedia Commons, which helps those sharing photos to get credit for their work (vi) Sharing models, and how these help the people sharing the information (vii) Working to get potential contributors like Isidore Mendes on board (viii) Tanmay's lovely pages on Isabel Santa Rita Vas and Frederika Menezes (ix) Conflict of interest while editing pages (x) Wiktionary needing at least 5-10 contributors doing at least 10 words each month to claim full-fledged status... currently Konkani Wikipedia is only in incubation (xi) The need to edit with the intention of building content, rather than just claiming edit counts.
Sunday evening's meet...
Discussions from this evening session [at the Central Library, Panjim meeting]: (i) Longish discussion on Wiktionary issue... Isidore raised queries, with some answers from Denzil. Incl possibilities of getting Isidore's dictionary online (e.g. via Wiktionary, one alphabet at a time). Searching for words online... KonkaniWordNet, etc (ii) Suggestions on what topics could be suitable for Goa Wikipedia volunteers to focus on ... (iii) Issue of the need to digitise local records, share online, approach libraries, etc (iv) Requests to convince willing authors to share their books via Wikibooks (v) Networking with earlier volunteers, and inviting them back (vi) Following-up on Konkanverter and improvement issues; Harriette offered to follow-up (vii) Asking Konkanverter Team to see if they could make their engine work with Konkani Wikipedia to allow a see-this-page-in-XXX style solution... among others. (viii) Taking forward plans for form a Wikipedians of Goa User Group, and inviting everyone with 300+ edits to be part of the sign-up team.. Since I was not taking notes, but caught up with the video link, I could have missed something...
DENZIL ADDED THIS POINTː The point about Isidore's dictionary was whether we can have a bot to automate the process of creating Wiki-entries from the document, rather than we having to enter in all the entries manually.

Konkani word for 'edit'
Wikipedia is an encyclopedia that can be edited by anyone, and therefore, there are many links in Wikipedia which say 'edit'. Clicking on these links allow you to modify some content. At present we are using the word 'बदल' / 'bodol' for this.
There has been a suggestion to change this word because 'bodol' means 'change'. The other options seem to be 'संपादन' / 'sompadon' or 'सुदार' / 'sudar' / 'sudrai'.
Please give your opinion about what word to use for 'edit'.
Categorization of Konknni Wikipedia Articles
Today there was a meet up of Senior Editors: @Darshan kandolkar, @John Noronha, @Supriya kankumbikar, @Melissa Simoes, @Savidha Talekar,@Rusita paryekar,@Varsha kavlekar, @Teffany Maria Gama and @Konknni mogi 24 of Konknni Wikipedia. During this Meet Up there was discussion about categorization. How to categorize particular article. The result of the discussion: There should be three main categories such as देवनागरी,Romi and Kannada. Further the categories should be in two scripts such as देवनागरी/Romi because in this categories both scripts articles would include.
Another Topic was discussed was: deletion of articles which are not as per wikipedia procedure.
We also discussed about Konknni Wiktionary and members were also asked to contribute for the same.
Good job! I am happy to see that we are discussing as a community and achieving consensus for our decisions.
