Tatoeba day

Tatoeba has seen its community grow quite significantly in the past 6 months, and it's really encouraging. There was a suggestion about having a "Tatoeba day", a day where (passionate) members would try to contribute more passionately than ever. It's a very good idea so we'll be organizing one every month (we'll try to).

The first one will happen on Saturday November 13th, from 0:00 to 23:59 (France time).

Well, this is a virtual event, so it happens on the internet... BUT if you want to live this event at its fullest, come to our IRC channel on Nov 13th: #tatoeba, on freenode. Don't be shy! And even if you are shy, you can just drop by to read what's going on.

For the first Tatoeba day, we will start with something very basic. The goal of the day will be to translate, correct and adopt a lot of sentences sentences. Not that it's different from what's already happening every day, but I will publish detailed stats the following day, to give an idea of what has been achieved during those 24 hours.
  • How many sentences added for each language and each user
  • How many corrections made for each language and each user
  • How many sentences adopted for each language and each user

This event is of course an occasion to be more productive than we usually are, but it's mostly an occasion for members to feel more connected with each other and to have fun! You may also learn a few things about Tatoeba that you didn't know :)
