Manchester Wikimedia Meetup Number 17

Date and time: 1 pm, 6 April 2013

Location: Briton's Protection, 50 Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester, M1 5LE

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 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!

Attendees of the wikimeet.
The eagle-eyed amongst you may realise that this is actually the Sir Ralph Abercromby pub, our usual haunt. We went to the Briton's Protection, which seemed very nice... but no food at a weekend! Our stomachs led us elsewhere...

  • Not offended that you've abandoned the Ralph - just can't make it this time. A thousand pardons. Hengistmate (talk) 15:46, 5 April 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Toyed with coming despite the distance, but it's just too far for a non-editor Face-smile.svg - maybe next time. Rich Farmbrough 14:22 6 April 2013 (GMT).
