This is the organisation page for Wikimeets in Liverpool. A wikimeet is a social gathering for Wikimedia enthusiasts. Where we...

  • Chat about Wikipedia, Wikimedia and any other topics we fancy.
  • Eat lunch and drink some beers (although beer isn't required, nor is lunch)

Wikimeets are mainly casual social events. You can expect to meet some very keen Wikipedians, however this is also an open invite for anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, projects re-using Wikipedia, and other collaborative wiki projects. Also wiki technology, MediaWiki, or discussing the business impact of mass collaboration. Anything of interest to Wikipedia:WikiProject Merseyside will also be relevant here. Feel free to come along and raise these discussions over a beverage of your choice.

We normally meet in a quiet, family-friendly pub - so hopefully younger Wikimedians will also feel welcome and safe.

Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

  • RexxS - A Tuesday? How subversive! I'll be driving from the vicinity of M6 Jcn 9 so I can give lifts if needed.
  • WormTT - well I work in Liverpool, I'm sure I could pop along...
  • Rodhullandemu. With any luck, I'll be fully moved from Wiltshire back to Liverpool by this date, and hopefully will be able to come along. I'm active more on Commons these days, and am happy to discuss how Commons and WP work together. Contact me there, please, for more details. Rodhullandemu 01:47, 29 October 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Darrelljon. Please remind me.
  • Bazonka. Hope to be there, work permitting.
  • Boing! said Zebedee. Sounds good. Beer at The Vines isn't great, but it's a convenient location.

  • Goatchurch - As it happens, I am going south on the day of that meeting to try to get the University of Bristol Spelæological Society to start systematically writing articles about British caves from the comfort of their own club library. I'd like to provide feedback on how that effort got on to another meetup.
