Wiki Club Meeting July 22:
All about Picnics

We are happy to invite the OFS community and everyone interested to join forces in this important endeavour to improve the content and raise the profile of food-related articles on Wikipedia.

In June we covered the top of the page and the long sidebar, with a particular emphasis on collaboration within Wikipedia. You can find Roberta's sum-ups of previous meetings here.

In July, to prepare for the Symposium on the following weekend, we will edit picnic-related entries.

Admission is free, but for technical reasons we need you to register - and as always, financial help is more than welcome.

Please note: registration is open until 30 minutes before the start time.

Meeting on-line on every first Tuesday of the month and hosted by expert Wiki trainer Roberta Wedge with trustee Polly Russell and tech lead Anke Klitzing, these informal, friendly and informative sessions aim to coordinate and support your efforts to edit Wikipedia and work on specific, particularly blatant issues. Novices, experts and the Wiki-curious are all welcome, just once, or (preferably) each first Tuesday of the month, so we can build a community committed to improve the food content on the world’s largest encyclopedia and its sister projects.

Over time this ambitious project will increase and improve the presence of food on Wikipedia by reviving the WikiProject Food and Drink. This is central to our commitment to changing the conversation, expanding the table and improving the plate.
