So, Wikitravel hi: is now live, see http://wikitravel.org/hi/ . There are a few things that need to be done to get the site going:

* Upamanyu, please let me know as soon as you've created a user name, and I can set your user privileges to "admin".
 +
* Upamanyu, it can also help to contact the people who've signed up for the expedition. They don't always know when the wiki has started.
 +
* We need to do some customization of the interface. There's a page at [[:hi:Special:Allmessages]] for doing this. It's not simple, but you can read more about the system at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_namespace .
 +
* Someone needs to announce the new wiki on shared:, en:, and anywhere else. Typically this is the liaison who does this.
 +
* We need to solicit some new users. Usually posting in the "Village Pump" (or equivalent page) on the Wikipedia for that language is a good idea; posting to other language community sites (like forums, blogs, or wikis) is also a great idea.
 +
* We need to get the infrastructure for creating a new wiki going. That means translating (or making new versions of) the manual of style, community policies, help pages, etc.

Sure. Translation will be done as soon as I can. I was supposed to go to Calcutta but had to cancel my flight tickets due to the riots that are happening out there.

Launched[edit]

So, Wikitravel hi: is now live, see http://wikitravel.org/hi/ . There are a few things that need to be done to get the site going:

  • Upamanyu, please let me know as soon as you've created a user name, and I can set your user privileges to "admin".
  • Upamanyu, it can also help to contact the people who've signed up for the expedition. They don't always know when the wiki has started.
  • We need to do some customization of the interface. There's a page at hi:Special:Allmessages for doing this. It's not simple, but you can read more about the system at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_namespace .
  • Someone needs to announce the new wiki on shared:, en:, and anywhere else. Typically this is the liaison who does this.
  • We need to solicit some new users. Usually posting in the "Village Pump" (or equivalent page) on the Wikipedia for that language is a good idea; posting to other language community sites (like forums, blogs, or wikis) is also a great idea.
  • We need to get the infrastructure for creating a new wiki going. That means translating (or making new versions of) the manual of style, community policies, help pages, etc.
