What exactly YOU can do for our community

What exactly YOU can do for our community

September 19, 2015 Off By whatcani926do

So…”Wikimedia Community” need your help! You could have been of a great use with all of your skills in coding, teaching, advocating, editing, moderating, administrating. Be the one who can show skills the best!

And no some of the words about an exact place you can be helping out it:

Creating

You can create articles on the Wiki, that are now missing, or edit those that needs it. Some if them are area restricted so you could use some of the proxies like proxy-seller.com in the web, to see a full picture. Going even more you can post your works, your thought or even some interesting materials you found across the web, in our wiki blog – hop along and show something new to the world!

Editing

A lot of the articles that Wikipedia consists of is not that accurate, and needs constant improving. Community makes Wiki, and sometimes mistakes happen so not be that shy to find those mistakes and fix them! Thousands of people will thank you later using that information for good. To say even more you can start with illuminating and avoiding vandalism. On Wikipedia, vandalism has a very specific meaning: editing (or other behavior) deliberately intended to obstruct or defeat the project’s purpose, which is to create a free encyclopedia, in a variety of languages, presenting the sum of all human knowledge. Even if misguided, willfully against consensus, or disruptive, any good-faith effort to improve the encyclopedia is not vandalism. For example, edit warring over how exactly to present encyclopedic content is not vandalism. Careful consideration may be required to differentiate between edits that are beneficial, edits that are detrimental but well-intentioned, and edits that are vandalism. If it is clear that the editor in question is intending to improve Wikipedia, those edits are not vandalism, even if they violate some other core policy of Wikipedia. Mislabeling good-faith edits as vandalism can be considered harmful. And as well as your editing, that can done though the proxy https://proxy-seller.com/kazakhstan-proxy.

Administrating

Looking over that great resource as Wikipedia is nothing but long and hard work. Wikitech is the home of documentation related to the technical projects and infrastructure maintained by the Wikimedia Foundation. This includes production systems, the Wikimedia Cloud Services computing infrastructure (virtual private server (VPS)), the Toolforgehosting environment (platform as a service (PaaS)), and many other technical projects such as the Beta cluster which is used to validate new software before deployment to the production cluster. And you can very well become a part of it looking after the servers or finding issues in the code and fixing them. WikiProject Cleanup is a resource for Wikipedia cleanup information, to post cleanup requests, and discussion. This project covers cleanup issues including page layout, wikification, spelling, grammar and typographical errors, tone, and sourcing. Allusers are welcome to help edit or fix any page on these lists.

Outreach 

Wikipedia is not only a lot of information of a hundreds of themes, you can get that even further, but providing information to the education communities so they can use that knowledge as well. We have collected a lot of materials that you can use when you are teaching Wikipedia in the classroom. There is also a main bookshelf where you can find materials about various aspects of Wikipedia that you may find useful (connect us with https://proxy-seller.com/proxy-Steam). Please refer to “The Syllabus” for tips on when and how to teach these various topics during the semester.

Advocating

Wikimedia contributors organize meetups to socialize and collaborate around the common goal of sharing information. Anyone can organize a Wikimedia meetup. Although it helps to plan a bit and have some awareness of how Wikipedia works, no one needs permission to have a meetup and there is no requirement anyone to have a meetup in a certain way. Some meetups are in person but online programs and events are great too. Some meetups are for discussing Wikimedia projects, while others have the goal of convening people to edit. Many meetups have at least one experienced Wikipedia editor present, but lots of meetups have organized and accomplished their goals without an experienced editor attending.
