  • Hi Bluerasberry. I've been asking for awhile for an email announcement from the conference organizers that I can forward. Do you know if any email announcement will be coming soon? Thanks, --Pine 21:21, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia's 15th birthday - get involved![edit]

Apologies for cross-posting the below!

The 15th birthday of Wikipedia, and the Wikimedia movement, is coming soon! We’re eager to make plans to celebrate on January 15, 2016.

As a way to kickstart planning around the 15th, there is a page on Meta for Wikipedia 15. Eventually, we plan for the page to have resources including:

  1. Resources to plan events and meetups locally to celebrate the 15th.
  2. More information on sharing birthday photos, videos, stories, Wikipedia content, and other media.
  3. Tips for pitching to local media to cover your event.

Many of the sections on the meta page are blank for now, but we’ll be working with you to add more information to the page over the next few months leading up to the birthday celebration in January. Please feel free to add, edit, and discuss what you’d like to see for Wikipedia’s 15th birthday!

We look forward to celebrating with you!
