Hey,

Fantastic job. Just take care about categorizing the images properly. To
avoid confusion and complexities create one unique category like WP takes
Kolkata.

After photographing are you going to gather once again and upload the
images at same time or individuals would later do it on their own?

Also I guess Ahswin is there in Kolkata, please do get in touch with him
and try to get the list of Images needed for Kolkata related articles.

And one more thing, who all are going to participate? Wikimedia
Contributors or newbies?

If you need any help please do not hesitate to get in touch with me over
this thread or off list. Thanks.

Great news!

Thanks Kalyan for sharing this with all of us!

It would be good if Bangla newspapers publish this in their Today's event, 
this always brings a lot of enthusiasts who don't read about the announcements 
on mailing lists/wikipedia.

All the best for this event!

Re: [Wikimediaindia-l] Wikipedia Takes Kolkata 2

2013-02-10 Thread Kalyan Sarkar
Arnav,

In the first Wikipedia Takes Kolkata, we used the category Category:Wikipedia
Takes 
Kolkatahttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikipedia_Takes_Kolkata.
We are planning to use the same category.

The participants of the event would be mix of of Commons contributors and
newbies. A couple of semi-professional photographers might join as well. I
don't have Ashwin's contact no. so I've included him in cc.

After the photo walk, we'll upload the images from our homes at our
convenience. This is because we would need to edit the images before
uploading.

Shubhashish,

We'll try to get it published. However, from our past experience, we can
only say that the Bengali language media in West Bengal is so much obsessed
with political news that they don't even consider these events worthy of
consideration.

Thank you everybody for the support.

Thanks and regards,
Kalyan Sarkar

Dear Kalyan,

All the very best. Please let know if we could chip in with any help.

'The Walls of Kolkata' are so rich and diverse, but are increasingly being
painted on. Some of the graduate students at Media Lab, Jadavpur University
had done Video documentation called 'Project Wall'. Probably we could
involve them in this event. You can see more about the Media Lab work here
http://www.medialabju.org/ . You may already have many contacts in JU, but
if it helps, I can put you in touch with Dr. Moinak Biswas of Media Lab,
who is also the Head of the Film Studies Dept, off the list. Pls. let know.

Probably we could also explore the possibilities of using the Media Lab
space for some of outreach programmes.

Best,
Vishnu

We do not have a list of the buildings that we photographed in our maiden
Wikipedia Takes Kolkata. The photos are categorized under Category:Wikipedia
Takes

Please have a look.

The page itself doesn't contain much information. However, if needed here

Re: [Wikimediaindia-l] Wikipedia Takes Kolkata 2

2013-02-10 Thread Abhishek Suryawanshi
Wow! This is nice..

Working in team for single spot will add new dimension. For Wikipedia Takes
Pune, we had group of 4 people for one location - After introductory
session, we provided them Google Map and Wikipedia Article copy of same -
So along with photograph they also learn about aspects of that place.
Example - Group going to ShaniwarWada Was briefed in advance about
importance and unknown facts about that place - so photographer is clear
about 'what' to capture. We requested to form group with stranges, so it
was 'fun' part - everyone got to spend whole day with strangers who shared
same photography passion...
Result of this exercise - Within 5 hours, 5,000+ photos were uploaded on
Commons.At end of day we had 6,500+ photos.

This is great team building exercise, we received many amazing volunteers
for club events. And majority work of Summit was executed by people who
were participant at Takes Pune event, later on they became key persons in
Club management.

All the best for Wikipedia Takes Kolkata!


Keep Organizing, Keep Inspiring! :-)


Best Regards,

Abhishek Suryawanshi,
On Behalf of Wikipedia Club Pune
