Become a Wikipedian!

Hey, if you like to share your knowledge -photos, audio files, text-, Wikimedia Foundation offers you lots of ways to do it. Take a look!

Some cool projects:

The GLAM-WIKI project supports GLAMs and other institutions who want to work with Wikimedia to produce open-access, freely-reusable content for the public.
Different GLAMs have different needs and goals for their projects. From our existing partnerships we have compiled a number of model projects, and we have documented case studies on how they work in practice.

Get Started

2. Wikimedia Commons


Wiki accepts music files with the file extension .ogg. This extension is the Ogg Vorbis Codec Compressed Multimedia File. Many people prefer audio in this format over the popular MP3, WAV, WMA and MP4 file formats.

3. The Graphic Lab

The Graphic Lab helps improve all graphical content used by Wikimedia projects stored on the Wikimedia Commons.
They work to improve the quality and clarity of images that are proposed to them by the community. This work most often involves extracting key elements from photos, removing distracting elements, and improving the general appearance of images. Creation and editing of drawings, diagrams and maps are also within the scope of this project if the requests are clear and the work is feasible.
The Graphic Lab and the Graphics village pump aim to transform Commons from an uploaders’ community to a true working graphist community, based on the four graphic skills and interests categories.
Feel free to request image improvements. Active contributors are also really needed to lead the project too. We need all this to start!
Mission statement: «Aim to transform Commons from an uploaders’ community to a true working graphist community.»

4. Fotowerkstatt (As the Graphic Lab, in Deutschland)

Willkommen in der Fotowerkstatt
Die Fotowerkstatt dient dazu, Fotos (und ähnliche Bilder, wie etwa Scans und Reproduktionen) mit behebbaren Mängeln zu verbessern. Da sich nicht jeder, der Fotos zur Verfügung stellen will, mit den Möglichkeiten der Nachbearbeitung auskennt oder sich in dieses Thema einarbeiten will, kann er hier um Unterstützung für die Bearbeitung bitten. Es können auch Fotos fremder Autoren zur Verbesserung vorgeschlagen werden. Eine kurze Rückmeldung zu den erstellten Verbesserungsvorschlägen ist in jedem Fall erwünscht.

Fotos, bei denen ein Wasserzeichen entfernt werden soll werden unter Wikipedia:Fotowerkstatt/Wasserzeichen eingetragen.

Wer Mängel selbst beseitigen will, kann bei den Fototipps seine Kenntnisse aufbessern oder beim Vorher-Nachher-Vergleich die Arbeitsschritte von erfolgreichen Verbesserungen nachlesen.

Karten und Grafiken gehören übrigens nicht hierher, sondern in die Kartenwerkstatt bzw. in die Grafikwerkstatt.

Es gibt parallel auch eine Fotowerkstatt des Schwesterprojektes Commons.

Tutorials, guides about how to contribute. ;”)

1. Choosing a license
This page is a guide to people who are contributing their own work, and want advice about free licenses and the “best” one to choose to apply to their work.

2. Best practices about contributing your own work

This is a guide for people who wish to contribute their own work to Wikimedia Commons. It describes the requirements for the work to be included and offers advice on “best practices” in the wiki. For suggestions on making pictures, see Commons:How to take pictures for Wikimedia Commons.

3. How to use Categorization

4. Would you like to know some projects related with Wikimedia and Education? Here the video interview of Iris Atma and Leigh Thelmadatter, Wikimedia Ambassador

5. Do you still need help? There are lots of Wiki things to read & learn ;”)

All righty! I hope you enjoyed this proposal.
See you around. ;”)
