UK virtual Wikimedia Meetup 10[edit]

Date and time: Thursday 24 March 2022 19:00—21:30
(join at any time you can, no need to stay for the whole event)

Location: Online
We will use Zoom video chat, the link is below. the wub will host.

You can expect to meet some very keen Wikimedians, and complete newbies are also welcome, as is anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. We typically chat about goings-on in the Wiki-verse and life in general, and sometimes will work together on some editing. If you have suggestions for topics, please add them below.

Note that we're using video conferencing, but there's no obligation to have your camera on if you prefer not to show your face. Or indeed your microphone: some people do just come along and listen in.

Feel free to join from anywhere you may be, in the UK or elsewhere! And please invite any Wikimedia people you know (or have had wiki dealings with) who might be interested – spread the word!

  • Hello I am a new Wikipedian in London by the name of Kabiryani or Kabir for short! I have set out to fully reference the 'Latin letters used in Mathematics' article! I see that you are all experienced British Wikipedians and your help would be much appreciated. I would be especially gracious if you could inform the members of the Mathematics WikiProject about the lack of citations on this incredibly important page! I would have loved to attend this meeting but alas I have school! Kabiryani (talk) 17:24, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
