Wikipedia Course in Gouda

Gouda course volunteers

User:Husky gave a short one-day course on editing in Wikipedia to volunteers in Gouda, co-organized by Goudanet and The Gouda platform for History. People made their first edits and wrote their first article on Gouda history. Around 10 people participated including people from the local library. The volunteers will continue to edit Wikipedia in the next few months.

Conferences etc.

Press and outreach


The board of WMNL met in Zutphen on the 4th and 5th for a strategy weekend. The results should be presented to the members before the general assembly on March 24th, so they will have time to give feedback on the results.

On the 25th the WMNL board had an afternoon scheduled on the day of a Wiki-Saturday to receive people who are interested in a board position. The WMNL board is searching for 2 board representatives to serve WMNL during the board year 2012-2013. Interested parties should consult the vacancies page.
