Founders' systematic activity planning before recognition
Planning included only activities, in the early years.
- During 2012-2013, the first pilot for systematic training to Wikipedia showed the need for at least once a week sessions.
- The plan for such systematic courses had been worked until Spring 2014 when Municipality of Kaisariani, in Athens, hosted Wikipedia School for adults.
- After working on Wikipedia School pilot, planning was set for a better infrastructure to support Wikipedia School and the idea was finally funded by WMF.
- After 2 years of running Wikipedia School courses, the need was obvious for forming a Wikimedia User Group. The decesion was to form a nonprofit association.
