Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] Wikimedia Israel received the Roaring Lion Award for the Hebrew Wikipedia 10th anniversary PR

Gerard Meijssen-3
Hoi,
Congratulations..

Many awards are known at Wikidata and, the "Roaring Lion Award" is now one
of them. Given that the Israeli chapter received this award, the item for
the chapter has been updated with this fact. Also added were its creation
date and the fact that it is a chapter.

It turns out that many chapters are not known on Wikidata.. Have a look [1]
if your chapter is known and maybe you want to create an item for your
chapter..
Thanks,
     GerardM
