Manchester Wikimedia Meetup Number 15[edit]

Date and time: Saturday 20th October 2012 — 13:00 onwards[edit]

Location: The Sir Ralph Abercromby, 35 Bootle Street, M2 5GU[edit]

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 Greater Manchester will also be relevant here. Feel free to come along and raise these discussions over a beverage of your choice.

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

Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

Please sign below if you intend to come. If you want a reminder closer to the time, please leave a note after your signature.

  • Bulhey I am very eager to attend my first meetup.
  • Bazonka
  • Julia\talk
  • WormTT Not making any promises, as I have to wriggle out of a prior engagement, but I'd love to come along
  • Yaris678 (talk)
  • RexxS (talk) - Lift from Midlands available if anybody wants one.
  • Mike Peel (talk) 17:56, 15 October 2012 (UTC) (may be late as there's a football match starting at 12.30 that could cause delays)
  • Mark L MacDonald (talk) 12:34, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
  • ClemRutter- any other day in October would be fine- but on the day of the TUC March. Any possibility of shifting it to the 27th/28th- or even the Sunday 21st?
Sorry Clem. The 21st clashes with the Coventry Wikimeet, and I know some people want to attend both. The 27th and 28th aren't any good for Julia W, which is why I picked the 20th. It's not possible to please everyone I'm afraid, but perhaps you could make it to Liverpool on 24 November instead? Bazonka (talk) 15:42, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Sorry couldn't make it. Full of snot. Next time, deffo. Hengistmate (talk) 18:34, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
