OK, so if you have read my earlier post you will know that I have been attempting to ethically update and correct the information on the MEPRA Wiki page. I have posted in the ‘Talk’ section and have patiently waited for someone to come and edit our information in the appropriate fashion.
Ten days later and nothing has appeared. So, I am going to try something different.
I notice that in the Middle East Public Relations Association wiki it is filed ‘ within the scope of WikiProject United Arab Emirates‘. This is a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of the United Arab Emirates on Wikipedia. I am instructed that if I would like to participate, I should please visit the project page, where I can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks.
So off I pop.
The first thing I notice is that… well, there’s not much here. There are a list of interesting Work groups & task forces, but that’s about it.
UAE Work groups & Task Forces
There are some pretty interesting titles there, but I’m not interested in examining each of these in the context of my post – feel free to visit yourself!
Now, I want to know who is behind this project group and there is a useful link which lists the members. This page invites you to submit your name in the list, which I have done. I am now number 7 of 14. From this page you can see what each person has contributed, and from this log you can quickly spot that there are only 9 active participants.
I have decided to reach out to one member of the wiki project group Emirati Icon and ask his/her advice. Let’s see what happens next!
