North Carolina Triangle Wikipedians
North Carolina Triangle Wikipedians is a Wikimedia user group, approved by the Affiliations Committee in May 2015. We have already hosted several edit-a-thons in North Carolina and we have plans for future events. Feel free to join us and help this group grow.
We fostered relationships with universities and organizations throughout the Research Triangle. This includes Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and the surrounding towns.
In 2016, Frank Jones will be representing the North Carolina Triangle Wikipedians at the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin. Also, Kasey Baker and Frank Jones represented our group at the WikiConference North America events in San Diego, CA.
We now have a group on Facebook which can help foster communication between members regardless of their familiarity with editing Wikipedia. You can search for Triangle Wikipedians or just use that link to find the group.
