At present, we are using the word 'प्रारूप' for the namespace 'Template'. However, I have checked with several dictionaries and glossaries including Rajhauns New Generation E-K and K-E dictionaries, Maffei's and Dantas' dictionaries, and Konknni Abhyaskosh, but I couldn't find this word anywhere. That means that this Hindi word is not a part of Konkani. Therefore, I propose that we change the Konkani namespace name of 'Template'. My suggestion is 'सांचो'. Please let me know your opinions and suggest what word we can use.

Konkani word for the namespace 'Template'
definetly, we should change it to kokni word but fear this would be a huge task of renaming many pages and replacing many links...someone with higher technical knowledge may elaborate on this?
We do not need to rename any pages, the software will automatically start displaying the new namespace names. The task of replacing the links can be done automatically (for example by using a tool like AWB). Also the old namespace name will be retained as an alias, so there will not be any problem till the links are updated or in case someone uses the old name.
I support सांचो for TEMPLATE.
We discussed this off-Wiki in our community WhatsApp group too, and the consensus converged towards सांचो . Hence, I will request for the namespace name for 'Template' to be changed to सांचो .
Deletion of Konkani Wikipedia Articles
Dear Community Members,
Right now we have good number of articles that is 3600+. Its a good number but the problem is there are few articles which are are not as per wikipedia format or procedure. Those articles would attract deletion. .
Work on Dead End Pages And Category
Some of Senior Wikimedians:@Darshan kandolkar@John Noronha,@Vaishali Parab@Rusita paryekar,@Savidha Talekar,@Melissa Simoes and @Konknni mogi 24 met on 16th December 2018 to work on linking of articles and to make category for the articles.
Good job! This is a very importantactivity, keep it up.
Adminship For Konkani Wikipedia Ambasadors
Presently there are only two admins on Konkani Wikipedia: @Konknni mogi 24 and @The Discoverer managing the work. The work is huge and there is a need of more admins. I kindly suggests the names for ADMINSHIP: @Darshan kandolkar, @Melissa Simoes@John Noronha @Vaishali Parab.
I Support, We need more hands on Konkani Wikipedia.
Not me, please. My skills in Konkani are suspect. Secondly, I want to roam around more in the different language groups linked to Goa. You can count on my support at all levels. If we have some solid people with good language and tech skills as Konkani admins, that's enough.
I support the proposal for expanding adminship by Konknni mogi 24.
I would like to take this opportunity to shed some light on what a Wikipedia administrator really is. A Wikipedia administrator is a user who is given certain technical abilities (for example, the ability to delete pages) because they are supposed to be maintainers of the Wikipedia. In addition, they also take up some responsibilities, like judging and closing discussions. Administrators are not more important than other users.
Therefore, an administrator can be considered to be more like a 'janitor' or 'cleaner' and not a 'president' or 'chairman'. For this reason, the symbol of a Wikipedia administrator is a mop (see image). Thus, an administrator must have an attitude of service. In addition, administrators must also have significant experience in editing Wikipedia and have a good understanding of various tools and features, and must be able to deal with disputes and confrontations well.
In conclusion, I ask that the candidates and the community understand well the role of an administrator and decide on each candidature based on the needs of the Wikipedia, and the qualities of the candidate. I wish all the candidates all the best, and I would humbly suggest that the candidates each confirm their intention to be admins and share about what areas of Wikipedia they intend to focus on before we proceed with the adminship.
I recommend reading more about Wikipedia adminship at the following page and related pages on the English Wikipedia:

Request for permanent adminship
Hanv 'permanent' toren sysop vo admin pod magunk sodta. Hanv adim khup pavtti 'temporary' admin zala. Hea babtint tumcho sohokar vo adkhol soloil borounchem.
I would like to request for permanent adminship in order to do regular administrative and housekeeping jobs like deleting useless and empty pages, editing and updating protected templates and pages, interface administration, etc. I have been a temporary admin several times in the past. Please mention your support or objections in this regard at the bottom of this post.
STRONG SUPPORTː I have known the work of The Discoverer for some time now, but only got to know him (via chat, not personally) recently. He seems to be the kind of person whose knowledge would be most helpful and useful in promoting and building the Konkani Wikipedia. Hence I would strongly support this....
How do I vote? You have my support.
Just make your comments here. That is enough of a vote.
I fully support The Discoverer for adminship
From the incubation of gom.wiki till date, The Discoverer has done his best in keeping the konknni wiki upto its mark. It should be great to grant The Discoverer permanent adminiship. I highly recommend permanent adminship to THE DISCOVERER. I also take this opportunity to thank The Discoverer for all the services rendered.
Thanks to all of you for your support, I have been granted temporary adminship and temporary interface adminship for a year and a half.
Great going. Let's get more people on board, and also build things.
I really think translations hold the key.
So do working in teams...
Isidore Dantas1 is doing a lot of contribution by way of translations.
I strongly support. The Discoverer has worked a lot for Konkani Wikipedia and still a most ACTIVE CONTRIBUTOR .
Wikimedia User Group Goa
Dear all, Seeking your help and support to launch this. It will give us some link to the Wikimedia, and help us maybe organise better events in and beyond Goa. We also need to organise ourselves into a group to generate more and better content related to Goa.

This appeal is to everyone active on Goa-related Wikipedia content, but specially to @The Discoverer @Darshan kandolkar @Konknni mogi 24 @Isidore Dantas1 and everyone else active in generating content.
