Take a look at the locations of the check-ins so far and add your city to the Wiki Check In Open Street Map (click on the map)

What is the Global Wiki Check In?[edit]

The Global Wiki Check In is a chance to collaborate with members of the global Wikimedia community and gather snapshots of life during this historical moment we are all witnessing world-wide. Beginning Saturday, May 16th, 2020 at noon in every time zone, we held a 24 hour editathon. The project will last 100 days, until August 22, 2020! We hope you will continue to leave messages and entries for this effort.

We are living in complicated times. In moments like these, the Wikimedia movement is more important than ever.

How do I participate?[edit]

Ambrosia10 New Zealand
My photograph is from a walk I took around Lyall Bay, in Wellington. This is the first weekend that New Zealand has had at Lockdown Level 2, enabling folk to be out and about, undertake sports such as kite surfing, shopping relatively normally and gathering in groups no larger than 10.
I edit English Wikipedia, Wikidata and Wikicommons. I am working on #1Lib1Ref, #WomenInRed work, and WikiProject:iNaturalist in both Wikidata and Wikicommons. Hello, Wikimedians! I'm hoping all my international friends are staying well.

Schools in my state of Victoria are currently open only for children of essential workers or those who are vulnerable. Most students and teachers are involved in remote learning from home. Victoria plans for a staged return to on-site schooling for students in Prep – Grade 2, Year 11 and 12 and all students in specialist schools from Tuesday 26 May 2020. Others will go back on Tuesday 9 June 2020.
My main contribution is in the Wikimedia Australia chapter and outreach activities in education and GLAMs. I edit mainly Wikidata in the area of Australian education.

Dove taking flight off of a street light in Parede, Portugal (photo by self). After spending two years in Lisbon, I flew back to the United States just before flights were stopped from Europe. I am still in the process of getting settled back at home.
I mostly edit Wikisource, eleven years and counting, but have created and added to several articles at Wikipedia, the most recent being Exiles Memorial Center, a research museum in Estoril, Portugal.

A sunny morning when three pine trees in Nevada City, California, USA were practicing social distancing. (15 May 2020)
Mostly, I create articles on Wikipedia about women writers and sometimes, other women's biographies, in support of WikiProject Women in Red. I'm also plodding along with my "Women Writers in Review" project on Wikidata. Looking forward to a time when we can get together again. @JSFarman: @Merrilee: @Penny Richards: --Rosiestep (talk) 16:45, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

I edit mostly women's biographies with WikiProject Women in Red. Last night I started an article on a Polish violinist, en:Eugenia Argiewicz (1887-1969). Hello! I contributed a photo of some chalk art we've done in front of our house, to entertain ourselves and passersby. People still have to walk dogs, so we have a steady audience. I was pinged! Not sure who to ping forward. Penny Richards (talk) 20:06, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

Pete Forsyth USA/ Portland
My friend Rev. Phil Sano organized a dance party in Portland to honor our dear friend Kelly Peach, who died recently. The event was held an empty movie theater parking lot, where we could dance with plenty of space for social distancing (between those who do not live together). It's important to keep up our connections in a time like this, as difficult as it can be. Thank you Phil for pulling this together.
These days, I am mostly editing English Wikisource, Wikipedia and Wikidata. I am working on News on Wiki, an effort to improve wiki coverage of news outlets, and transcribing old books on Oregon history. Hello, Wikimedians! I hope all my friends and colleagues on the wiki are staying healthy and keeping your spirits up. These are difficult times. Our efforts on wiki are as important as ever, with so much confusion and misinformation in the world. -Pete Forsyth (talk) 22:15, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

P. S. I tweeted my check-in here. Who else put theirs on Twitter? Post here if you did so I can like & retweet!
