Abstract[edit | edit source]

Have you ever faced the problem of a new active editor falling inactive after some time? If so, the topic of this talk might interest you.

This talk is about a Wikimedia community magazine, "WikiBarta". Wikipedians of all sorts have stories about their journey of Wikipedia, the highs and the lows. Often these stories are very interesting and can be a great source of motivation for others. But these stories seldom got documented and get lost over time. Wikimedian of the Bengali language community started a community magazine to make a platform where these stories can get documented. It also serves the purpose of delivering our movement-related news, essays, insights, and many more thing to the Bengali community in Bengali language.
