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.

हांगा फाटल्या दोन दीस भुरग्यांनी नवें लेख घातल्यात, पूण तांचो आंकडो मुखेल पानांचेर आजून बदलूंक नात.New Articles are been uploaded in Konkani Wikipedia but thier updates are not been shown on Main Page. Why?

The Discoverer (चर्चायोगदान)

Wikipedian panani zoddnni aslear-uch tenka lekh mhunn meztat.

That is because the new pages do not have any links in them to other pages. The Wikipedia software does not count pages which are created as articles unless they contain a link to another page.

Create a link in any new page to another page in Wikipedia, and you will see that the count increases on the Main Page.

That's why it is important to create links in the articles to other pages.

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.

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.

Warm welcome to our 20+ young friends in Mangalore, who met today to focus on Wikipedia (particularly Konkani) issues there. We hope your enthusiasm grows into a wildfire and spreads to build a language (and region) that needs it. Three-four small suggestions, if I may offer based on our experiences here (i) Don't focus on language alone, but let everyone contribute in whatever language they are comfortable with ...  this helps in growth. (ii) You can network among yourselves through a group like WhatsApp (for speedy communication), but your comments are also most welcome [and important] on the Konkani Wikipedia Tinto, of course (iii) Don't worry about script differences, we will use Konkanverter to overcome this and understand each other (iv) Lastly, don't expect everyone to be comfortable with all tasks required on the Wikipedia. Let everyone join in, with whatever skills they have. If they contribute photos, that's fine. If they do only translations, fine. If they can help with uploading articles, fine as well. If they are community organisers that helps as well! We need techies, language specialists and more. Great going and all the best. We are with you in all your endeavours. Visit Goa sometime! We can meet here as well....

[11:46, 11/18/2018] FN 9822122436: Hariette Vidyasgar is meeting with a team of 20 young and enthusiastic in Mangalore... great news. We did introductions, and then the meeting started... We might get in touch later again when they finish their discussions.

[11:51, 11/18/2018] FN 9822122436: After that, Denzil Simoes 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.
