 Great program! Happy to see Wikipedia Zero in Grameen Phone!

 For the video you ask, you can browse
 wiki/Category:Wikipedia_videos_in_English with many video tutorials and
 some Wikipedia introductory videos like
 wiki/File:Edit_Button.ogv and
 wiki/File:Great_Feeling.ogv, both of them have bengali subtitles also.

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Mexico. January report

Dear community:

By means of this mail and on behalf WMMX Board and volunteers i share with
you the monthly report of our chapter corresponding to January 2014.

We suffered a delay in translating our past reports, for the same reason I
share also our reports of October, November and December of 2013:

During 2013 we wrote down our reports in our own wiki (,
from January 2014 on you will find them also on Meta. I have included the
index of our reports in Wikimedia_Chapters/Reports

I want to draw your attention specially to our report of October, since it
contains the information and links to the activities of Iberoconf 2013.

Sorry if I don't copy the content of the reports here but it would be too
much information.
