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?
  1. We were able to interest new participants with our contest and during this competition we were joined by about 9 new editors.
  2. The number of articles created during the contest exceeded our expectations, the contestants created 35 articles more than we expected from the beginning.
  3. Social media in many ways has played to our advantage and we, with the help of social media, were able to attract new participants.
  • What did not work so well?
  1. Unfortunately we could not contact one of the winners, since it is not active in Wikipedia, and there are no contact details (even the mail was not associated with the Wikipedia account).
  • What would you do differently next time?
  1. The next time we will be more vigilant with the contact details of the contest participants.
  2. We will also consider in more detail the funds that we need, since this time we forgot to write the resources for paper matters.
