Welcome back from Wikimania 2016!


Rich Farmbrough



Created the page World Women to act as a nexus for projects and people focussed on improving participation and coverage of women in our projects.


  • I renewed contacts from previous years, and am now reinvestigating African and African language content.
  • I met many new Wikimedians from across the world, and discussed a number of possible projects.
  • Also met some UK Wikimedians who I have not seen at meet-ups.

Anything else[edit]

  • Several hundred photos to be uploaded to Commons
  • I created two important bugs reports, one relating to animations, and one to translations
  • I acquired material related to various projects.
  • Reinvigorated to complete phase 1 of my pseudonyms projects, and my alternative genetic code project
  • Discussing other open-knowledge projects that can have broader scope than our existing projects.
  • Gained a better insight into Wikidata.
  • Assisted a number of Wikimedians with technical issues.
  • Discussed many ways of streamlining workflows.
