The MediaWiki developers are working on the advanced toolbos that is part of
the usability initiative. At the moment there is support for several scripts
... but not for any of the scripts used in the Indic languages. This is a
good moment to consider how your scripts can be supported..
This is where you can find the scripts currently supported in the "special
characters" part of the beta part of this wiki. You may have to create
yourself a profile and enable the advanced toolbox in the user preferences.
NB also vector is the skin of choice..
As discussed and agreed by the quorum in the last Bangalore Wikipedian
Meetup (3), we are going ahead with the monthly wikipedian meetup plan. The
meetup as proposed earlier is mid month on a Sunday at 3 PM.
The next Bangalore meetup is announced for the 16th of Aug at 3 PM.
We have interesting talks and agenda lined up.

researchers, gurus of Web 2.0, publishing houses and governments have
entered into fierce debates and discussions about what the rise of Wikipedia
and Wiki cultures means and how they influence the information societies we
live in. The Wikipedia itself has been at the centre of much controversy,
pivoted around questions of accuracy, anonymity, vandalism, expertise and
The Centre for Internet and Society (Bangalore, India) and the Institute of
Network Cultures (Amsterdam, Netherlands) are working together to produce a
critical Reader on Wikipedia and to build a Wikipedia Knowledge Network.
Under the rubric CPOV, we propose two events that bring together different
perspectives, approaches, experiences and stories that critically explore
