For a year or more I have been looking for an individual grant to buy a
simple image scanner.
My most recent application was at Ta Wikipedia
>From that application:, I need a scanner regularly, so I would not be able
to do all works in a particular period (for example, someone says, "take a
scanner for two weeks and return after that)
Can anyone give me oive me one?
The results for Wikimedia Board elections are out and unfortunately Indian
candidates were unable to make it out.
I want to thank all the candidates who had nominated themselves for this
election to spread the awareness among the community.
I would like to thank all Indic community members who had submitted their
votes during the election period, and I hope that more community members
will be aware of the WMF activities and participate in maximum numbers.
>From Indic language Wikipedia, Telugu language Wikimedian had voted in
Having least number of eligible voter among the community was a major
challenge to the Indic candidates. Mean time in future indic community
support is mostly important.

It gives WMIN and CIS-A2K great pleasure to announce that we have started
preparations for MediaWiki Train the Trainer Program. It is a matter of
grave concern that while the Indian Language Wikipedias are slowly improving
their content and expanding their volunteer base, there is very less and
often zero representation from the Indian Language Communities towards
MediaWiki software and the available tools around.
CIS-A2K intends to bridge this gap by creating and grooming 'tech' leaders
in the MediaWiki sphere from the existing Indian Language Wikipedians.
MediaWiki Train the Trainer program aims to facilitate discussions around
nurturing leadership regarding tech related issues, file bugs that hinder
the growth of Indian Language Wikipedias, active contribution towards
improving the existing MediaWiki software and understanding the importance
of mediating technology for outreach activities. The 4 day residential event
will happen in last week of June, 2015.
Exact dates and venue will be announced soon.
We welcome specific issues that should be discussed during the MWTTT as well
as feedback and suggestions. Please write to us if there are any concerns.
