Week 6 & 7 @wikidata…Headers finally up!

Greetings!

The headers I had been blurbing about till now are finally up ! 🙂
Go check out the initial set of headers at Wikidata profile on Google+Facebook and Twitter.
Have a look at the complete final draft of headers here. Hope you like them !

Week 6 started off with publishing of headers online including necessary attribution to authors whose awesome works we used for the headers. I edited a few headers for Google+ cover resolution as well. Next, I completed my regular work of media calendar; completing the entries for September, 2014 along with edits to corresponding Wikidata items.

In our weekly meeting, my mentor Lydia told me and Helen about the keynote she is about to give at Wikimania 2014. Lydia had this awesome idea of the keynote involving the human side of the Wikidata project; a highlight of the creative and diverse Wikidata community. What next! we interns also started pouring our ideas in. Soon in the list were creative, funny Selfies from Wikidata community members with a ‘Wikidatish’ touch… 😉

So, we went on to create a draft of announcement for the community, majorly edited by Lydia, seeking selfies. It’s already up on project chat, mailing list and so on. Response coming up is great. Why not check out the Category:Wikidata Selfies for yourselves? Or better yet, add yours. Be a part of this fun-filled endeavor!

Week 7
The next week started with completion of the social media calendar for October,2014. Further, I added more prospective items to the List of Prospective Items for Showcase.

A new task lined up for the week was work on the Slideshow tutorials for Wikidata workshops. I had proposed to do this in our weekly meeting and was approved. So, I triggered off with analysis of all past presentations developed by Lydia as part of conferences, hackathons & other such meetups pertaining to Wikidata. Before beginning work on the actual presentation, I worked on a rough Ideas layout. In our meeting today, I got it reviewed by Lydia and Helen, got some valuable feedback and key points to include. Thus, in coming days I shall be working on the first in the thread of these tutorials.
Hope they are of much help to new & prospective contributors, when done.
