How to Help Armeniapedia.org
- One of the biggest helps would be to help get this site linked to from other Armenian sites, as well as non-Armenian web link directories so that more people can find the site.
- Another way to help is if you can translate from Armenian to English. If so, take a stab at the following pages: Category:Needs Translation to English
- Pages needing editing to become "fair use". In otherwords they contain copyright material that should be rewritten to only use the factual/fair use portions, so that they are ok to use. See the list.
Eventually it would be nice to have an automated way of tracking which pages need:
- Pages needing formatting work
- Pages needing more content
- Pages needing photos
- Pages needing editing
Another big step that needs to be taken is to upgrade the script, and perhaps make some alterations. It would be great if certain articles which should have the same content as Wikipedia (for example, Duduk) could automatically be crosslinked to Wikipedia in order to automatically import the pages from there every so often, and to redirect those wanting to edit the page to wikipedia.
Banner and Linking
Please feel free to link to any Armeniapedia content or photo page. Please do not embed a photo - which is a bad practice and is considered bandwidth theft.
To add an Armeniapedia graphic to your link, here is some code you can add to your site:
<a href="http://www.armeniapedia.org"><img src="http://www.armeniapedia.org/images/d/dd/Mainlogo.png" border=0></A>
It will display the image on the top left corner of this window, and link it to Armeniapedia's main page. Thanks!
