Wikisource unconference session at Wikimania 2017 in Montreal[edit]

I requested a half-hour unconference session on Thursday Aug 10, hopefully with a demo from you of an upload to wikisource + related discussion. I'll get a pdf or some jpg files together. Here is how I described the proposed half-hour session. Edit that freely. After the demo we may agree on what to ask for on phabricator and pile on to an issue/task. Thanks for offering! -- econterms (talk) 20:55, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

@Econterms: sounds good! Should we get together beforehand and run though the demo? Or can it be a bit casual and we'll figure it out as we go? Sam Wilson 11:24, 9 August 2017 (UTC)
@SWilson (WMF): -- Let's reschedule for later. I'm sorry. I took it down from the unconference table. It would overlap with other sessions I want to attend, and it's not a North-America-specific topic anyway. Also I'm not ready yet with my images. I'm thinking of a putting up a Wright brothers airplane patent. It's an ideal thing for wikisource, I think. I can make images for each page given time. Should I upload each page to commons or just keep them on my laptop? Thank you for seizing the opportunity. Hopefully there is a chance to do this later in the main conference. -- econterms (talk) 13:00, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
@Econterms: no worries! Let's figure out another time. Sam Wilson 17:09, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

The “Wikimedia Australia” website[edit]

Hello,

I’d like to point out to you that the “Noongar WP” version of the website—whatever that means—has been overrun by spambots, which affects the search engine results pretty badly. Could something be done about that, perhaps?

Thanks,

@94.189.163.55: Thanks for the reminder! It's a known issue, but was untracked. I've opened T210363 and will hopefully see to it soon (in my volunteer capacity). SWilson (WMF) (talk) 01:15, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
