Webcam[edit]

Is webcam needed for participating in the workshops? I myself am not OK with showing my face to others. I would like to type my questions and statements (if any) just like Twitch, but I can use microphone too if needed. Thanks 4nn1l2 (talk) 19:36, 8 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi! Webcam use is not required. You can keep your video turned off and share your questions in the chat if that is your preferred way. Looking forward to your participation! SSethi (WMF) (talk) 22:34, 8 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What about Jitsi Meeting (FLOSS) plus streaming?[edit]

Is it possible to have the future workshop not on Google Meet but on something else like Jitsi Meeting (FLOSS)? Google Meet is problematic for me, and also for people in China and other people.[1] Also, note that it's easy from Jitsi Meeting to stream on other social networks :) that is a good surplus. Thank you for your work! --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 07:36, 24 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks and this is great suggestion! We will certainly explore this option for future workshops. SSethi (WMF) (talk) 19:40, 25 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
