presenting the project Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory and asking for a vounteer in संस्कृतम् Wikipediaसम्पाद्यताम्
My name is Marc Miquel and I am a researcher from Barcelona (Universitat Pompeu Fabra). While I was doing my PhD I studied whether an identity-based motivation could be important for editor participation and I analyzed content representing the editors' cultural context in 40 Wikipedia language editions. Few months later, I propose creating the Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory in order to raise awareness on Wikipedia’s current state of cultural diversity, providing datasets, visualizations and statistics, and pointing out solutions to improve intercultural coverage.
I am presenting this project to a grant and I expect that the site becomes a useful tool to help communities create more multicultural encyclopaedias and bridge the content culture gap that exists across language editions (one particular type of systemic bias). For instance, this would help spreading cultural content local to संस्कृतम् Wikipedia into the rest of Wikipedia language editions, and viceversa, make संस्कृतम् Wikipedia much more multicultural. Here is the link of the project proposal: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Project/Wikipedia_Cultural_Diversity_Observatory_(WCDO)
I am searching for a volunteer in each language community: I still need one for the संस्कृतम् Wikipedia. If you feel like it, you can contact me at: marcmiquel *at* gmail.com I need a contact in your every community who can (1) check the quality of the cultural context article list I generate to be imported-exported to other language editions, (2) test the interface/data visualizations in their language, and (3) communicate the existance of the tool/site when ready to the language community and especially to those editors involved in projects which could use it or be aligned with it. Communicating it might not be a lot of work, but it will surely have a greater impact if done in native language! :). If you like the project, I'd ask you to endorse it in the page I provided. In any case, I will appreciate any feedback, comments,... Thanks in advance for your time! Best regards, --Marcmiquel (चर्चा) ०८:३३, १० अक्तूबर २०१७ (UTC) Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona

Proposal of the collaboration between Sanskrit Wikipedia and Classical Chinese Wikipediaसम्पाद्यताम्
Hello, fellow Wikipedians of the Sanskrit Wikipedia!
We are the Wikipedians of the Classical Chinese Wikipedia, a classical language Wikimedia community. Sanskrit Wikipedia, being a community of a well-known classical language enjoying rich culture, great influence on the world and a long history, has a prosperous community with numerous goods and active users, the number of both greatly exceeds ours.
It would be a great honour for us, if, just like the previous collaborations between Chinese and Urdu Wikipedia,the community of the Sanskrit Wikipedia could collaborate with us, the Classical Chinese Wikipedia. As the previous examples had shown, collaborations like this would be beneficial for both of our communities, and would help the two language communities to understand each other. We would be more than happy to see the success of the collaboration, and the request is the reason of leaving this message on the Village Pump.
May the Sanskrit Wikipedia continue to flourish! We hope the collaboration takes place as soon as possible.
- As an administrator of the Classical Chinese Wikipedia, I would be glad to cooperate with Sanskrit Wikipedia. I think it is a rare opportunity for the Classical Chinese Wikipedia to improve its content relating to South Asian culture. We are organizing a content contest to encourage Literary Chinese Wikipedians to create articles that were included in Sanskrit Wikipedia but were not included in the Literary Chinese Wikipedia. Does anyone here has interest in holding context contests to improve articles about Eastern Asia which were included in Literary Chinese Wikipedia while has not been included here?

Hello! We have established the project page of the Collaboration in the Classical Chinese Wikipedia. We hope that the Sanskrit Wikipedia could establish a corresponding one. Thank you!--丁子君 (चर्चा) १३:५०, ६ जुलाई २०१९ (UTC)
