Online training courses[edit]

After last year's experiences with one-day trainings, for this year we tried a new format: 2 month trainings over email, with monthly video conferences. They were aimed at librarians and had significantly more success, with some decent articles being published and some users continuing to contribute sporadically after the training ended.

Hardware donations[edit]

In coordination with the Hardware donation program we were able to gather and send 3 computers to contributors on the Romanian Wikipedia: 1, 2, 3.
