2019 was another year that Turkish internet users did not have access to Wikipedia. Still, the user group continued to organize editing contests with remaining active users, there were a number of education activities, some representation in global conferences and events and most importantly wikipedians in Istanbul started weekly meet-ups at the end of the year. We kept our hopes high that Wikipedia will be accessible soon and continued our work.

Tuesday Meetups[edit]

A user-meeting at Uskudar University with remote participants

Begining from November 5th, our user group started to make regular weekly meetings on Tuesday nights at Istanbul. Since then every month, three of the meetings are being organized at a coffee-house and one meeting is being held in Uskudar University so that members from other cities may also participate remotely. 5-15 participants are coming together in the meetings.
