Wiki Club Meeting Oct 2023
How to Get Involved In The Wiki World
OFS Wikipedia Project Welcomes All To It's 3rd Year
We are delighted to invite, or invite back, all those in the OFS community to participate in the Symposium’s monthly wiki-club. Together, we are improving the content and raising the profile of food-related articles on Wikipedia.
In the inaugural 2021-2022 year, we learned about the mechanics of editing, from resources to images, from the lead to the end matter. In 2022-23 we touched on these aspects again, but with more time for questions and live editing.
This year we will again cycle through these areas, developing our skills with an emphasis on collaborating on-wiki. We are proud to cater to beginners and experienced alike, using Zoom’s break-out rooms. The hour-long sessions will continue to be led by expert Wiki trainer and friend of OFS Roberta Wedge with host Polly Russell and tech support Anke Klitzing.
You are welcome to join us, just once, or each first Tuesday of the month, so we can continue to develop our community committed to building up the food content on the world’s largest encyclopedia and its sister projects.
The first session (“How to get involved”) will take place on October 3rd, 17.00 (London time/BST) for an hour, in the form of a Zoom meeting.
Admission is free, but for technical reasons we need you to register - and as always, financial help is more than welcome.
If you are completely new to the idea of contributing to Wikipedia, or want a recap of the basics, please watch the video Roberta prepared for the 2020 Symposium (the link is in the reading list).
