To do[edit]

  • Modify image at top to be more specific to London 2008. Lcarsdata 22:29, 15 April 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Carbon neutral?[edit]

Will the conference and the flights to it be carbon neutral? -- Jeandré, 2007-07-07t16:28z

People will be taking their own flights to whatever destination is chosen, it's up to them if they want to offset the emissions, there's not really anything WMF can do. --Tango 21:27, 20 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]


Perhaps we should start this page from scratch, with the template provided? Majorly (talk) 15:42, 21 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Move this page?[edit]

Shouldn't this page be moved to Wikimania 2008/Bids/London ?? --cfp 15:14, 28 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]

If you are of the bidding team and officially bid your city, please do until the accpetance deadline. Otherwise, that is, if you are the third party, please keep the distance. Thanks. --Aphaia 15:28, 28 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]
As per list discussions I have moved this officially. --Alison Wheeler 11:21, 29 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Party venues[edit]

Not quite sure why I'm still bothering as nobody else is but here are some links I found for a bid in 2009 on a party venue idea I brought up on WikimediaUK-l:

Actually it was just one link. Whatever ;) Gary KIRK parler! 12:51, 13 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]

If you like to know, I am glad to share.[edit]

Hi, Wikimania 2008 bidders,

I was informed by an Alexandria bidder that it is necessary for bidders to take a look of the WM07 budget, for your better imagination and calculation. I would love to share these information with you, and I have already started to write a summary report in detail for better organization of Wikimania. (Though it is still in Chinese currently) As a member of the Wikimania 2008 bidding jury, I hope every bidding team are on the same ground. So, there's nothing I have already told to Alexandria.

The budget is in my Google docs and spreadsheets. I think it will be good that every bidding team could let one person to read the WM07 budget. However, we had signed some agreements with confidential obligations, so I hope that the person who I share the budget with could help me on this. Don't show it to people not related to your bidding. If it is not hard for you to follow, then please inform me the person's email. :)

Air fares[edit]

Please provide air fares. I strongly suggest to provide true numbers (it's weird, seems that in the bids usually a cipher gets lost or the currecy exchange rate is incredibly good), since I'll check all of them on expedia.

My scenario includes:

  • 3-10 aug 2008
  • roundtrip
  • all extra included (fuel, airport and national taxes, booking, fuel surcharge, any extra to have a 15kg luggage)
  • ticket bought online (usually expedia)

Please, comply ASAP. --Jollyroger 10:51, 17 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]
