Manchester Wikimedia Meetup Number 36[edit]

A banner like one of these should be on our table

Sunday 9 June 2019 — 13:00 onwards[edit]


Ape and Apple , 28-30 John Dalton Street, M2 6HQ


We are in the alcove to the right of the main door. DO NOT go to the Ralph Abercrombie as there is a private function on. Thyrduulf should be bringing a tabletop banner with him(see image below right) as well.

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 invitation 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, discussing the business impact of mass collaboration, or articles about Greater Manchester will also be relevant here. Feel free to come along and raise these discussions over a beverage of your choice.

This is a family-friendly pub, so hopefully younger Wikimedians will still feel welcome and safe. Look for a small Wikimedia banner on the table, and we may also have laptops out.

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.[edit]

Definitely coming, using this as an excuse to try out cheap first class Virgin Pendolino tickets. Will be bringing a few "recruits", er, friends. Ritchie333 (talk) 11:26, 3 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

I am interested as well


I do wonder why we couldn't have shunted the Pendrel's meetup to the week after. I wanted to go to this one because it's "something different", London meetups are trivial to get to in comparison. Ritchie333 (talk) 15:41, 3 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Thryduulf:. I seem to be on that list but don't remember seeing a talk page message. PamD (talk) 06:54, 5 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@PamD: I left one for you on your en talk page in February (now in your archive 12), but I don't seem to have left you one in the batch I did on 25 May, possibly as you hadn't signed up on this page (I'm not sure). Thryduulf (talk: meta · en.wp · wikidata) 11:48, 5 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
