Welcome back from Wikimania 2018!

Participant[edit]

Estevoaei (Adrián Estévez Iglesias)

gl.wikipedia; also Commons and Wikidata

Outcome[edit]

Option 3: New Creation: I made new articles related to Cape Town, such as gl:Crise da auga en Cidade do Cabo (Wikimania edit-a-thon Water sustainability) or gl:Universidade de Cidade do Cabo, and some articles about southafrican women, such as gl:Graça Machel, gl:Patricia de Lille or gl:Helen Zille.

User:Theklan (Galder González), from eu:wiki, told me about 1.000 artikulu 12-16 urteko ikasleentzat, and some users in Galician Wikipedia (User:Elisardojm is coordinating the process) are translating it into Galician Language.

User:Vanbasten_23 (Ángel Obregón), from es:wiki, told me about his bot in WikiData to add descriptions in Galician language.

Connections[edit]

I presented a poster about 100WikiDays: Women Writers. I met User:Spiritia (Vassia Atanassova), the creator of #100WikiDays!

I also gave a presentation with User:Rodelar (Rubén Ojeda) and User:Virginia_Diez about WikiTakes Rural Areas. There were about 35-40 people, and they made us really interesting questions!

I also met people from Spanish Wikipedia (from Colombia, Argentina, Perú or Bolivia) and Portuguese Wikipedia (from Brazil).

Anything else[edit]

It was my first WikiMania, and I've been very surprised about it. I really enjoyed it, but a room in a cheaper hotel would be fine, even it would not be in the same venue of the event.
