Event details[edit]

  • Date/time: Wednesday, 21 September 2022 from 16:00-
  • Location: Thanon Thawi Watthana, Salaya

Topics of discussion[edit]

  1. WMTH Chapter's location
    • คณะสิ่งแวดล้อม - becomes less preferred due to the uncertain ability to legally use the address. There was a rejection of a proposal at Faculty of Science as the University does not allow legal entity registration on university's address.
    • Servcorp office - becomes an alternative choice as the address is reputable (1 Silom Rd.) and can be used to register. Co-working space and phone number are some of the facilities. The price for serviced office and is 14,000 baht per month. Learn more.
    • Athikhun will contact the lawyer to discuss these possibilities.
  2. Status of Visa for Sydney Conference
    • Athikhun: Granted
    • 2ndoct: Granted
    • Tanapatjms: Granted
    • Myesd: Granted
    • B20180: Yet to be granted
    • u6181299: Yet to be granted
  3. Meeting with JChen on 20 September 2022
    • Discussion of the delay in registration.
    • Planning on legally registration as soon as possible.
    • Space available in the Wikimedia Research and Technology Fund committee.
  4. Feedback on Wikimedia Summit 2022 in Berlin by Tanapatjms
    • Got to connect and make friend with Wikimedians who joined the summit.
    • Wikimedians in the Summit were curious of the problems why Wikimania 2022 in Thailand was cancelled.
    • Learned there is Movement Charter Drafting Committee working on the charter.
    • The discussion of the problems of other regions' Wikimedia and User Group were expressed in the conference with responsible people from WMF listening.
    • Hub was discussed a lot but it came back to the question what the definition of the hub clearly is.
    • 3Hs principle was proposed by Taweetham for Wikimedia Thailand.
      3 Hs Principle Proposed for Chapters in Thailand
  5. Taweetham joining the grant committee.
    • This meet up is the last meet up for Taweetham as a member of Wikimedia Thailand.
    • Following the Wikipedia Education Program from Wikimania London in 2014, there was a u-turn on the community’s stance about students submitting their homework to Wikipedia. Pilot classes were conducted at Mahidol University and it was an opportunity to grow the volunteer base that turned out to be the backbone of Wikimedia Thailand today.
