Do you have plans to have a limited number of Spanish translation pages?
While projects in non-English speaking countries have English translation pages, as a collary I think WP NYC should have a limited number of pages in Spanish Thanks, WhisperToMe 23:59, 18 October 2011 (UTC)
PIPA/SOPA protest 18 January 
A 90-minute protest is happening outside the New York City offices of New York's senators, Charles Schumer and Kirstin Gillibrand, organized by the New York Tech Meetup. Wikimedians in NYC might be interested in going.
Request for comment 
I am drafting a proposal at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Pine/drafts/ENWP_Board_of_Education and would like input from chapters. I would appreciate comments on the talk page. Thank you! Pine(talk) 10:47, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
Meeting minutes 
Names for events 
There are two names for two events, I think. Something called the Wikipedia Salon seems also to have been called at different times the bi-monthly in-person meetup. Are these events the same? Can their histories be merged?
It seems like Wikipedia Takes Manhattan is a photo scavenger hunt for the autumn, and lately this event seems superseded by Wiki Loves Monuments. Can we merge the history of Wikipedia Takes Manhattan as a scavenger hunt into Wiki Loves Monuments, and then perhaps use "Wikipedia Takes Manhattan" for some other kind of event?

Merge of locations 
There are three places where people can get information about this chapter. I think that all the places are important and that we should keep these three, but we ought to plan for what kind of information goes where.
Here is our external website - http://nyc.wikimedia.org/wiki/Home I propose that this be an exhibition of the chapter's best-sounding accomplishments. This should be the address which we give to non-Wikipedians who want to scrutinize the chapter for some reason, but who would be unlikely themselves to participate in Wikipedia. Very little about this site should be interactive or request that users do anything, and this site should be updated rarely.
Here is the site on meta. Wikimedia New York City I propose that this be the running wiki of all the kinds of information which Wikipedians collect to meta-document their Wikipedia documentation practices in the chapter.
Here is the Wikipedia meetup page. Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC I propose that events be posted here for the sake of users who find it convenient to watch a Wikipedia page rather than a meta page. I propose that no history of any kind be kept here except for sign-ups for specific events. Once the events are over then the event and sign-up list should be moved to the meta page as a historical record.
Is this the way things ought to be? Does anyone have an alternate proposal? If my description of how things are is correct, then I propose to develop the meta page first, then sort out upcoming events on Wikipedia, then plan to have a simple mostly-static website based on what we discover during the meta page development. Thoughts? Blue Rasberry (talk) 19:47, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
Spanish page 
- Should Wikimedia New York City/Participants be bilingual? Or should there be a separate Spanish participants page? WhisperToMe (talk) 11:33, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
Is the Wiknic going to happen 
It says here that it's slated for June 22 in Prospect Park. I live in Maryland but I am always looking for an excuse to come up to NYC. Where will the latest / greatest info about this even be posted? Klortho (talk) 14:40, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
- All NYC events are posted at WP:Meetup/NYC. The wiknic is not posted yet but the park space is reserved. More details are coming. Blue Rasberry (talk) 01:39, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
Permission to use logo requested 
Hey guys, I just got tentative news that there will be a public meetup at the National Library of Medicine in Washington DC next week. I think that the meetup will be on Tuesday but that is not confirmed. I was planning on going anyway, but now that there is going to be community outreach, I think that I would like to go as a member of Wikimedia NYC. May I say that I am a member of WM NYC and tell people about the organization?
I would like to use an advertisement at this meeting which incorporates the Wikipedia logo. May I use this with the permission of WM NYC?
