Activities and lessons learned
Please describe in detail what you actually did. Provide links where applicable. we supported and organized a total of 3 edit-a-thons, 4 meeting for the user group members,Wiki Loves Monuments Competition and Wikipedia education program conference.
We made 2 edit-a-thons more than 120 one participated in working on developing and improving many articles and around 45 one of them continue working with Wikipedia by joining Wikipedia education program.
We called every member of our user group for a monthly meeting to plan for events and activities.
Wikipedia education program conference
we managed a conference in Cairo University to celebrate the achievements of students in the 5th term on Wikipedia education program
Wiki Love Monuments
WMEG actively promoted the Wiki Loves Monuments Competition with the following :
- Advertising the competition through the ORMS mailing list ans social media which has a substantial number of photographers
- Contact and presentations with photographic societies / clubs to promote the competition
- 2 photo hunts made in September
we managed a to write articles about history in Arabic Wikipedia and 15 users joined it and its result was more than 110 new articles and upload 80 new image. there was 2 winners in this contest . first prize was $250 and second was $100 . and the judgement criteria was on both quantity and the quality .
- What worked well?
Many organizations were interested in hosting edit-a-thons with us,
We generally delivered what we promised and completed the contest successfully.
- Central notice appears to be the most efficient method for advertisement of this project.
- We have made good local partners for future collaboration/projects.
- Compared to 2013, we have significantly larger number of uploaders.
- What didn't work?
- we can't reach some winners to deliver the prizes to them
- We still have a problem of lack of active volunteers especially in our offline work. Also we need to be more organized and more prepared in our future events.
- What would you do differently if you planned a similar project?
- Design a more effective workflow for first and subsequent uploads.
- Uploaders should take less than a few minutes to read overall rules and should be encouraged to come back to an announcement page for results.
- Email contact is a must. We should explore technical tool to enforce this.
- Make announcement long before September so that people have plenty of time to collect good photos.
