To attract greater participation at regional Wikipedia Day
events in the US through WALRUS
, and possibly elsewhere in North America through Wikimedians of the Caribbean User Group
or others. These are usually the largest non-editathon meetups of the calendar year, often take the form of a one-day Wikipedia Day unconference
, are suitable for newbies looking to become more engaged, and have been held annually in New York City since 2010, in Los Angeles since 2017, and sometimes elsewhere. This request is unusual because we are asking for subnational banners for local events in particular US states, see last year's request at CentralNotice/Request/Wikipedia Day US 2019
Will be measured by participation at the meetups.
