Both the date and time and location are currently provisional but I'd like to get them nailed down fairly soon. Certainly the date needs to be finalised by the end of July at the latest and the venue ideally a fortnight before the event if not sooner, so unless there is discussions here to the contrary, or a decision to confirm sooner, I'll settle on Saturday 1 September 2018 in the Commercial Rooms by the 28 July.

Either Saturday or Sunday are options, but the weekend before (25/26 August) is the bank holiday and so I guess Bristol will be busy and fewer people will be able to attend. Thryduulf (talk: meta · en.wp · wikidata) 18:27, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

@RedSquirrel, Rodw, MartinPoulter, HJ Mitchell, RexxS, and Redrose64: As there have been no comments or alternative suggestions re the date or venue, I've made the provisional details final - i.e. 1 September in the Commercial Rooms.

Surrounding wikiprojects[edit]

Can I suggest the invite is also put on surrounding wikiprojects ie Somerset, Wiltshire & Gloucestershire - some may also travel from South Wales.Rodw (talk) 19:08, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

Good thinking, I'll do that if you haven't already. At some point Redrose64 will probably work the geolocation magic to get it on the watchlists of people nearby. Thryduulf (talk: meta · en.wp · wikidata) 19:28, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
Messages now left for those Wikiprojects, WikiProject Wales and those who attended the most recent Cardiff meetup who are still active on en.wp or meta. Feel free to invite anyone else you think might be interested too. Thryduulf (talk: meta · en.wp · wikidata) 19:41, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

Article for Commercial rooms[edit]

It may be worth wikilinking en:Commercial Rooms, Bristol. We could even have improving that article as a challenge for the wikimeet?Rodw (talk) 19:34, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

It's already linked! In my experience not much editing happens during social meetups (although I did create the w:Bridgwater Canal disambiguation page at the last Oxford meetup), but any article improvements are obviously a good thing!
