Added [ml] description: അമേരിക്കയിലെ ചലച്ചിത്ര അഭിനേതാവ്Edit

Please stop the bot and undo your changes. You write that he is a movie actor, but he is also a television actor and a stage actor, so it should correctly be just an actor. Best regards, HarryNº2 (talk) 17:40, 1 October 2019 (UTC) In the ml language, actors are normally listed as ചലച്ചിത്ര അഭിനേതാവ്. I think in the occupation part we can add other specific profession.--Akbarali (talk) 17:44, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

Indian scientists datathonEdit

Hi Akbarali,

You are receiving this message as you are one of the participants of WikiProject India on Wikidata and/or a subscriber of the Wikidata India newsletter.

Hope you and your loved ones are safe and sound during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation.

This is for your kind information that, from 22nd May, 2020 Friday to 24th May, 2020 Sunday, a datathon will be happening on Indian scientists on Wikidata. The lack of data about Indian scientists, their works and publications on Wikidata is the reason behind conducting the datathon. Considering the ongoing pandemic, the datathon will also focus on scientists working on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.

The tasklist of the datathon is flexible. Participants can choose their own preferred task on this topic

Hoping for your active participation.

Take care and stay safe,

[WMF Board of Trustees - Call for feedback: Community Board seats] Meetings with the Wikidata communityEdit

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. This call for feedback is to see what processes can we all collaboratively design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees?

In this regard, two rounds of feedback meetings are being hosted to collect feedback from the Wikidata community. Two rounds are being hosted with the same agenda, to accomodate people from various time zones across the globe. We will be discussing ideas proposed by the Board and the community to address the above mentioned problems. Please sign-up according to whatever is most comfortable to you. You are welcome to participate in both as well!

Also, please share this with other volunteers who might be interested in this. Let me know if you have any questions. KCVelaga (WMF), 14:32, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

Enabling Section Translation on Malayalam WikipediaEdit

Hi Akbarali,

I am Uzoma, the Community Relations Specialist supporting the Language team; nice to meet you.

I am reaching out to you because the Language team plan to improve the mobile translation experience with Section Translation enablement in Malayalam Wikipedia. Since you are an active member of the Malayalam Wikipedia community, we request that you and other members of your Wikipedia community try the tool and provide feedback.

Section Translation extends the capabilities of Content Translation to support mobile devices. On mobile, the tool will:

  • Guide you to translate one section at a time to expand existing articles or create new ones.
  • Make it easy to transfer knowledge across languages anytime from your mobile device.

Malayalam Wikipedia seems an ideal candidate to enjoy this new tool because data shows significant mobile editing activity. Our plan is to enable the Section Translation tool on Malayalam Wikipedia in the coming weeks.

I have also made the announcement in the Malayalam embassy. We will appreciate your help in spreading the word to Malayalam Wikipedia contributors to try the tool and provide feedback.

Thanks, and I look forward to your response and your help.

Best regards,
