Its been months that we had meetups at Hyderabad, and still i feel that
nothing significant has been done to tewiki.
Some facts about tewiki :

   - There are more than 48000 articles with the article count at the moment
   of writing this mail being 48111.
   - Most articles are one liners with the villages as theme, content being
   village name, mandal name and district name.
   - Many articles are a direct word to word translations
   of English Wikipedia articles which lack nativity and have several
   grammatical mistakes.
   - Articles that can be marked as good are very few.
   - Most of the places, personalities, other important entities do not have
   articles at tewiki.

So, its obvious that we need to have a quality improvement of existing
articles and creation of relevant content as well. Also, we envision to have
reached the 50 k mark by August 29, 2011.

In this regard, I propose the first Telugu Wikipedia marathon on July 10,

Honeypot IT Consulting Private Limited,
6-2-46, Moin Court, Advocates Colony,
AC Guards, Hyderabad.


the marathon will run for 4-6 hours and participants can even do it from
their places. Those with lack of computer/internet facility can make use of
the venue.

With thanks and regards
