Wikimania[edit]

Are you allowed to nominate a place for Wikimania, even if you have never been there?--Lucky102 (talk) 16:06, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Not really. Each bid needs a large team of local people who are willing to work on organising the conference if they win the bid so the nominations are generally made by people living there. Angela (talk) 16:22, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Ok, but the nominator could tell everyone else that lived there to do it, because I would like to nominate something.--Lucky102 (talk) 19:32, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Please answer, I want to nominate some place(haven't decided yet!).
Sorry but that's not how it works. The local team need to nominate their own location. Angela (talk) 05:29, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Ok. Can I suggest to someone that lives there though to nominate it. Can I nominate it if it's a city in my country, but I don't live there. Please answer soon.--Lucky102 (talk) 08:19, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
There wouldn't be a point to do this since it requires a local team ready to make a bid. Angela (talk) 11:55, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
That's a shame, I wanted to nominate Dublin, but since I don't live there, I can't. I do live in Ireland though.--Lucky102 (talk) 17:00, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

BBC + Wiki[edit]

Hello Angela!

I have just read about your meeting with the BBC in 2004 as they were inquiring to use wikis. My name is Sophie, I work for Wikimedia Sweden, and I have just been contacted by SVT, the Swedish broadcasting company and they would like to know more about BBCs idea. What did happen? Did they use wikis? I would be very grateful to hear more about this as SVT are rather interested to utilise wikis. I would be grateful if you would either reply here or send me an email. Thank you! --Sophie Österberg (WMSE) (talk) 09:03, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi Sophie. I moved to Australia in 2005 so I didn't follow what happened with the BBC after I left. I know that they used internal wikis a lot but I'm not aware of whether they ever had a public-facing wiki. I'd recommend that you get in touch with someone at Wikimedia UK for more up-to-date information. Contact details are here. Angela (talk) 09:32, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
Hi Angela! Thanks for your quick reply, and sorry for my slow response! I'll get in touch with WMUK, thank you! --Sophie Österberg (WMSE) (talk) 12:23, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
