Other knowledge to prepare[edit]

A 2014 editathon on Waray Wikipedia, where an experienced editor shows new editors how to fix a particular problem in contributing.

There are many other things that are likely unnecessary to teach during the initial training, unless they are part of a goal of your event. However, at many editathons, participants have questions about:

  • How to find and use templates, especially Infoboxes
  • How to engage with talk pages
  • How to illustrate Wikipedia articles with existing content on Commons or upload content to Commons
  • How to use web browsers, copy and paste functions, and other technical literacy skills.

Editathon slide decks used by other program leaders can be found at: this Commons category.
