We arranged for hosting for our new server.


One of our members has been working on a project called Sztakipedia that would enhance the editing experience on Wikipedia by providing category, internal link and reference suggestions.

As part of this work, a user survey was conducted in March. A demo and further information on the project is available at: http://pedia.sztaki.hu (in English and Hungarian), results of the survey (in Hungarian) at: http://pedia.sztaki.hu/survey_result_hu.html.


  • 7: We held a small meeting to discuss the marketing needs and possibilities of the Wikimedia projects and Wikimedia Hungary's possible role in that.
  • Our president met with a local stock photo agency to discuss their policy with regard to public domain images that are present both in their database as well as Wikimedia Commons.


Wikimedia Hungary participated in the 2009/10 Fundraising, and as part of the agreement agreed to transfer half of the revenue collected to the Wikimedia Foundation.

In the Fundraiser Wikimedia Hungary collected 5.7 million forints, and transfered $11 210.66 to the Wikimedia Foundation. Following the end of the fundraiser, our donation revenue for March was 8521 forints.

Small grants programme

Wikimedia Hungary has approved a small grant to purchase an orthographic dictionary and detailed Hungarian grammar to help one bot programmer in his work on the Hungarian Wikipedia.

A report on the effect of the grant (in Hungarian) is available in our blog: http://huwiki.blogspot.com/2011/07/koltsegteritesi-palyazat-wikipedia.html
