Great concept. I think this would a great little project, and worth the expense for the WMAu chapter.
I helped run a small wikisource competition with Wikimedia Indonesia (esp. Ivonne & Siska) to transcribe a 550 page dictionary, and found it to be very successful, but does require quite a bit of time to run and help newbies. Ill write up a proposal if another WMAu member is willing to second and help organise the competition in Oz. -- John ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: "David Cuenca" <dacu...@gmail.com> Date: Oct 31, 2013 10:09 PM Subject: [Wikisource-l] Wikisource 10th aniversary proposal : Proofreading contest To: "discussion list for Wikisource, the free library" < wikisourc...@lists.wikimedia.org> Cc: Talking with some members of Amical Wikimedia about how to celebrate the 10th aniversary, one of the proposals was to organize a proofreading contest. Basically, we would select some books for the participants to proofread and validate and they would gather points for each page without errors. The person with the most points would win a Kindle donated by Amical Wikimedia. However, we have been thinking that with the help of some members of the Wikisource User Group and other Chapters, then we could escalate it to an international proofreading contest, instead of being just regional. I guess ideally we would need 3 kindles and at least a volunteer from each community to organize it. What do you think of the idea? Would you or any chapter that would like to get involved?
