Please don't tag deletion on my created article as it is already requested to the admin [1]. কণিকা (বাৰ্তা) 04:27, 19 December 2022 (ইউ.টি.চি.)

Hello @কণিকা. As it happens that the page সুশোভন সনু ৰয় has been deleted multiple times for not meeting the WP:Notability criteria. The delete tag (spam) has been added for the reason for recreating it agin without sufficient reliable sources. I have noticed that you requested to recreate it to the admin. I suggest, it would be more fruitful to discuss in the talk page why this article should not be deleted. I hope you would continue to contribute to Assamese Wikipedia. Good wishes. -Chandan Chiring Phukon Chat 13:27, 19 December 2022 (ইউ.টি.চি.)

অনুগ্ৰহ কৰি আপোনাৰ ভাষালৈ অনুবাদ কৰাত সহায় কৰক

Dear Chiring chandan,

Christmas Greetings and a Happy New Year 2023,

You are humbly invited to organize the Feminism and Folklore 2023 writing competition from February 1, 2023, to March 31, 2023. This year, Feminism and Folklore will focus on feminism, women's issues, and gender-focused topics for the project, with a Wiki Loves Folklore gender gap focus and a folk culture theme on Wikipedia.

You can help Wikipedia's coverage of folklore from your area by writing or improving articles about things like folk festivals, folk dances, folk music, women and queer folklore figures, folk game athletes, women in mythology, women warriors in folklore, witches and witch hunting, fairy tales, and more. Users can help create new articles, expand or translate from a list of suggested articles.

Organisers are requested to work on the following action items to sign up their communities for the project:

  1. Create a page for the contest on the local wiki.
  2. Set up a fountain tool or dashboard.
  3. Create the local list and mention the timeline and local and international prizes.
  4. Request local admins for site notice.
  5. Link the local page and the fountain/dashboard link on the meta project page.

This year we would be supporting the community's financial aid for Internet and childcare support. This would be provided for the local team including their jury and coordinator team. This support is opt-in and non mandatory. Kindly fill in this Google form and mark a mail to support@wikilovesfolklore.org with the subject line starting as [Stipend] Name or Username/Language. The last date to sign up for internet and childcare aid from our team is 20th of January 2023, We encourage the language coordinators to sign up their community on this link by the 25th of January 2023.

Learn more about the contest and prizes on our project page. Feel free to contact us on our meta talk page or by email us if you need any assistance.

We look forward to your immense coordination.

Thank you and Best wishes,

Feminism and Folklore 2023 International Team
