2. How will you let your community know about the event? Please paste links below to where relevant communities have been notified of your proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions.
- We have already started the promotion in Albanian Wikipedia social media page: https://www.facebook.com/events/317957492011908/,
we have published it in Albanian Wikipedia mailing list: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikipedia-sq/2017-November/000222.html and also at sq.wikipedia.org where we also will do the documenting part: https://sq.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Takime/Wikimedia_diversity_editathon
3. Do you have experienced Wikimedia editors to lead the event?
- Yes, we do have experienced Wikipedians like:
Greta / user: Margott and Jona / user: Jona Rizvanolli. Also participants who have already confirmed their participation are relatively experienced Wikipedians. We do expect new participants who are interested on editing Wikipedia/ Wikidata.
4. Do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content? If not, how will you support them?
- We will use English Wikipedia articles to translate. Generally participants of this event have good English knowledge therefore the translations process will not be an obstacle.
5. How will you engage participants after the event(s)?
- We are planning to have a follow-up event of this edit-a-thon by doing a small workshop in the beginning of the next year. Also at the documentation page we will have sessions only for people who have difficulties on editing after the event, so we will support anyone who will seek for support.
