Habari!

Well I think the WLM site at [1] is now better than [2].The instructions
on how-to participate are clear and things are a bit more organized.

One more thing remains...When users click on the links in the banners
to participate in WLM KE from the various Wikimedia projects, they are
being taken to the Wikicommons planning page at [2] which has no leads
on how-to participate.

I suppose that should be changed to redirect users to the new
Wikipedia site at [1], or if that is not possible then we will have
to move the templates and the whole content!

I prefer the redirect as it is easier. If that is not possible since it
is a commons to Wikipedia situation, we can put an instruction at [2]
directing users to the new Wikipedia page at [1].

What are your thoughts on this?

PS: Are we still issuing some local prizes or the participants will just
enter into the int'l compe?
