Project Tiger 2.0 Patiala Meetup[edit]

  • Event organized by Punjabi Community.
  • This Event or Meetup held at 19 December 2019 at Patiala. It was a one-day event.
  • Sharing Event page Meta Page link with you.
  • In this Event, One Writing Contest Jury talked about quality of members and he notified importance of good article. Three new editors were new and they were excited to contribute Wikipedia. They want to learn more things and want more clarity about Wikipedia. Through this type of events we can attract more new editors and Introduce with Wiki.
  • I spent my own money during this event. Event timing was 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm and the total bill was 1900 rs. Two participants came from Delhi and I'll mention that from their tickets. Will share tickets and bill by email.
