  • I learned about Ordia https://ordia.toolforge.org/ , which will be very useful for me for looking up Wikidata . lexemes. Thanks to Utilisateur:VIGNERON.
    • This is a cool tool!
  • I enjoyed the Maltese meetup. There should be more of those, throughout the year, for all kinds of languages!
  • I learned how to use Wikidata templates in the English Wikipedia. It was such an obscure thing, and User:RexxS taught me useful things. Thanks!
  • all the mug photos!
  • video pool
    • +1 The videos were amazing and varied!
    • +1000000, all the videos are great and everyone should watch them and share them

🎉🌍 Welcome to day 2 of the conference!🌍🎉
Hello! What's the weather like where you are right now?

  • In Berlin it's been raining like hell earlier, now it's slightly better & 21°C
  • It's winter here in Cape Town and we have wind & rain, snow on the mountains!
  • An howl a dhallathas splanna yn Kardydh wortiwedh! The sun has finally started to shine in Cardiff.
  • Sunny blue skies here in north London
  • Overcast in Amsterdam
  • Overcast and a bit windy in NRW, Germany
  • Sunny in Truro, Cornwall - DavydhT
  • Overcast but bright - West Mids UK
  • Sunny and blue skies in Glasgow, Scotland
  • Lovely blue skies, warm sun, puffy white clouds - for now
  • a sunny early morning, around 28 degrees already in Accra
  • Suddenly quite sunny, after a very cool and wet few days in Dublin

Irish terms from the slide[edit]

  • These are 2 artefacts from the Hunt Museum, being used to illustrate both the collection and some Irish-language terms
  • gúna = dress
  • corcra = purple
  • faisean = fashion
  • mainicín = mannekin
  • línéadach = linen
  • fáinne = ring
  • ór = gold
  • déantán Ceilteach = Celtic artefact
  • seanda = ancient
  • seandálaíochta = archæological

(As someone with limited irish I read those as "celtic made thing", "old thing", "OLD OLD thing"...)


🎉We finished the first day of the conference!

What did you enjoy most today? 🎉 (e.g. a specific talk, interaction with people, eating cereal while watching the opening talks?)

  • Kevin Scannell's presentation
    • Finding out that there's another Irish speaker in my hometown
  • Wikidata details and how it can be used
    • Learning about Wikidata has been great, although I feel like I'm dipping my toes in the edge of a VERY deep pool!
  • Learning about Content Translator, so I've made my first edit on the Welsh Wikipedia. The tools for populating smaller-language Wikipedias from Wikidata look super helpful.
  • The lunch was great! Just as I like it!
    • 😂
    • just like at home 😄
  • I like having an etherpad, maybe face-to-face conferences should also have them
    • As someone who has been scribing into Etherpad a lot today, I'd struggle to do so at an in-person conference, unfortunately.
    • The etherpad has been so good! I know I haven't taken it all in, so I will be able to look back at those notes later.
    • Wikimania usually does
    • very useful for the panel discussion topics (lots of things I need to look up later)
  • video pool, so much interesting talks there too! (didn't had the time to look them all yet sadly)
    • 💯
  • L99 😂
