"London" Wikimedia Meetup Number 160[edit]

NOTE - This meetup will be virtual due to the Coronavirus pandemic

Date and time: Sunday 8 November 2020 13:00—18:00
(join at any time you can, no need to stay for the whole afternoon)

Location: Online
We will use Zoom video chat. the wub will host. See #Zoom link for the link.

People of all ages and all Wikimedia projects are welcome. Complete newbies also welcome.

Although this meetup is a continuation of the regular "London" gatherings, going virtual means geography is no longer a constraint so do feel free to join from anywhere you may be!

Please also invite any London/UK Wikimedia people you know (or have had wiki dealings with) – spread the word!

Suggested topics[edit]

  1. We had an Esquire journalist as a guest last month. His article has now appeared: What We Know And Can Agree On: Wikipedia At 20. It doesn't seem that our meeting made much impact but perhaps we're represented in this list: "anarchists, trainspotters, creators, vandals, world experts, world amateurs, super-grammarians, super-creeps, supremacists and lone-wolf information crackpots"!

    @Andrew Davidson: I believe that article was basically finished when Simon joined us. He mentioned that he was working on a potential followup which has more of a focus on editors and particularly what motivates them, so hopefully we'll show up there! the wub "?!" 12:44, 8 November 2020 (UTC)
  2. Portuguese Wikipedia has banned unregistered editing, and for legal reasons IP addresses may need to be masked on all Wikipedias. What is the future of unregistered editing? the wub "?!" 12:44, 8 November 2020 (UTC)

Interested but not attending[edit]

Zoom link[edit]

I've sent this by email to most people already but going to try posting the link here as well this time. We've not had any issues with "zoombombing" in the past, and do have the "waiting room" feature enabled to prevent it. Pinging @Gameshowandsportsfan2007, GhostInTheMachine, LegofanCy, and Excutient: who I couldn't reach via email.
