Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

We recruit some experienced and recruit and train some new editors with usual participation in the weekly meeting. During these meeting the participants add, aimprove and translate contenct around gender issues.

We were expecting to increase the number of participants, it was not possible to be a big group, but we found the way to be a stable group with continuos participation.


Please report on your original project targets.

Target outcome Achieved outcome Explanation
Number of events: 6 32 As we were a small number of participants, we decided to increase the number of meetings to increase the community feeling and facilitate the participation of new prticipants.
Number of participants: 5 to 8 regular + / - 20% 3 participants par meeting and and average to 5 meetings par participants some people can assist in the meeting depending on their job and their volume of work, other come only when they have questions
Number of new editors: 5 +/- 20% 5 new editors + some other participants who used to come from time to time, depend of their availability Encourage new people to participate in Wikipedia requires time because most of them when you tols them that they can participate creating articles don't believe it, they think that only very smart people can write articles. It's easier to promote a group where to participate togheter creating and improving articles with people who had had a first contact with wikipedia but who has some difficult to learn how to well contribuite
Number of of articles created or improved: 50 +/- 20% 66 During the wikimidis it's a perfect situation to ask questions related to how to introduce some information to the articles or discuss about some contribution. That means that some days it's a space where some people contribuited and othes learn or teach how to do it, so not all participants have new contributions every day that they come to the event. However, all participations are welcome to improve the wikimedia community group knowledge.


Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?

We could encourage some sporadic wikipedians to come usually to the meetings and collaborate eachother to participate in improve the quality of several articles

  • What did not work so well?

It was difficult to find new participants and have a bigger group. For different personal reasons in some moments of the year the organisators had difficulties to attend the wikimidis. So it was necessary to find other people to be the host of wikimidis

  • What would you do differently next time?

It's needed to be more people engaged in the organisation of the project, not only participation because in case some unexpected events happen, somebody could continue with the project. At the end of the year we have a more or less regular group and it's motivating to continue with the meetings.
