  • What worked well?
  1. All the events went well.
  • What did not work so well?
  1. Participants did not fully understand how to participate in the project, and had a lot of questions on how to use computers in editing Wikidata.
  • What would you do differently next time?

Anything else[edit]

Anything else you want to share about your project?

I was expecting 8 participants but I ended up having 13 editors that registered to participate. However 12 of them actually did the edits. Therefore I had to increase the Wikidata T Shirts from the 8 that was budgeted for to 12. I used the money in miscellaneous to do this.
