This expedition looks ready to go. I've unfortunately got poor network access right now, but I'll try to set this wiki up sometime tomorrow. --Evan 14:57, 18 March 2007 (EDT)
Wow! This will be a world-record, and I'll be wikitravel's first go-between who's a kid (I'm 13). Anyway, what about the file, we need to translate that, the MediaWiki bit? Upamanyuwikitravelshared 07:36, 20 March 2007 (EDT)
Naw, we can do that with database messages. We don't need that any more. --Evan 13:15, 20 March 2007 (EDT)
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.
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.
It's a big step, but I'm excited to have a Hindi version available! --Evan 17:01, 20 March 2007 (EDT)
OpenId doesn't work there? — Ravikiran r 02:41, 21 March 2007 (EDT)
I checked, it looks like the page is there , but entering my log in URL does not work. Come to think of it, OpenId has not been working for my shared either. — Ravikiran r 02:44, 21 March 2007 (EDT)
