Comments from I JethroBT (WMF)[edit]

Hi Tanweer Morshed and NahidSultan, thanks for your report on these two events. I have a few comments:

  • The article work done during the event is fantastic, but I'd like to understand a little more about what articles were written. Is there a list of articles that were created during the anniversary event?
  • Can you describe why management was better for this event compared to previous AGMs?
  • Thanks for sharing some photos from the event, it looks like you brought in speakers from a variety of disciplines to engage both new and experienced participants in our projects. I appreciate this kind of broad outreach in your community.
  • That cake looks really good, by the way (I'm feeling a little hungry as I'm reviewing!)

I've approved your report, but when you're able, please respond to these questions. Thanks very much for your work! I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 19:32, 16 June 2017 (UTC)[]

Hi I JethroBT (WMF), here are the replies:
  • The article contest included a list of topics, from which the participants had to create articles. Here is the list. And here you will get to see the list of articles that were created (both accepted and not-accepted articles).
  • This time, we started the preparation work earlier than before and had more volunteers to manage the work. That is why it was better than previous year.

We'll let you have the taste of the cake once you visit Bangladesh :P Also, if you're attending Wikimania 2017, we can offer you with some tasty Bangladeshi delicacies :) Tanweer (talk) 08:21, 17 June 2017 (UTC)[]

@Tanweer Morshed: Thanks for providing the list. As for Wikimania, I won't be able to attend this year, but I've been doing more site visits recently, so perhaps I will see you sometime in Bangladesh! :) I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 21:25, 20 June 2017 (UTC)[]
