Reminders before the event
As your event approaches, be prepared to remind the list of potential attendees several important details:
- To bring laptops if the event is not hosted in computer lab or with enough loaner devices.
- To register Wikimedia accounts ahead of the event. Many wikis have caps on how many accounts can be created at one location in one day. Each Wikipedia has a cap of 6 accounts per day per IP address .(learn how other program leaders deal with this concern).
- Reminders about logistics for the event such as child care, access challenges, and other venue access limitations.
These reminders ensure that folks remember to participate and are prepared to do so, especially if attendees signed up well ahead of the event.
