Storyteller Victor Grigas has been a Wikipedia editor since 2005. His userpage is here

Tired of reading personal appeals from Jimmy Wales? Want the annual fundraiser to better represent the rich diversity of the global Wikipedian community? Help us improve the 2011 Fundraiser by sharing your experiences, thoughts and enthusiasm for Wikipedia with our Storytelling team. As part of the 2011 Fundraiser, the Wikimedia Foundation is collecting stories from Wikipedians around the world. Storyteller Victor Grigas will be traveling to Bangalore and Mumbai, India from the 12th - 20th of November 2011 and he wants to meet with you.

Scheduling Your Interview[edit]

Please use this page to select a time slot for your interview. Look through the daily schedules below - any slot listed as "open" is still available. Once you find a slot that works for you, edit this page and replace "open" with your Wikipedia user name. If you have any comments, questions or feel that you’d like to talk to me in person but wont be able to make it to either of these locations and would like to schedule a Skype, Telephone or IRC interview, please email me at vgrigas at wikimedia(dot)org

Notification[edit]

We seek to find Wikipedians who have interesting stories to tell about themselves and their use of Wikipedia. The primary use of these stories is for the 2011 fundraiser, but here are also functions of these stories for other communication pieces as well.

We will ask you about:

  • yourself
  • your interest in Wikipedia
  • questions for fundraising.

Your interview may or may not be used by the Wikimedia Foundation for operational, promotional or fundraising purposes and may be seen in presentations, email, the web, visual or print media. There is a legal release that you will have to sign to be interviewed. If you have any questions, please contact vgrigas@wikimedia.org

Interview Room Location[edit]

Once we've confirmed the location of our interview rooms, we'll post that information here. Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled interview time.
