General Updates

  • Based on our recent discussion, the Ohio Wikimedians User Group has its first resolution in support of Net Neutrality.
    • On a related note, a proposal on the Village Pump has been created about having a banner in support of Net Neutrality displayed for Wikipedia users in the United States. If you have thoughts on this proposal, you may add your comments here.
  • The Art+Feminism campaign took place in March and April, and Ohio saw two Art+Feminism edit-a-thons take place! A Cincinatti edit-a-thon was hosted by LOOK, and a Columbus edit-a-thon was hosted by Wikipedia Connection at the Ohio State University. Great job to all attendees and organizers!
  • Stay tuned for volunteer opportunities for WikiConference North America 2018, which is coming up in October in Columbus, Ohio! Stay up to date on the conference by joining the mailing list, liking the Facebook page, and following the Twitter handle.
  • The 50,000 Challenge is currently 5.74% complete, with the goal of writing 50,000 articles on U.S. topics. If you're interested in writing Ohio-related articles, consider contributing as part of this event and recording your articles under Ohio!
