Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:
- What worked well?
- The entire process of preparation and implementation of the contest passed without any problems. Local communities were happy and interested in cooperating with us and holding a competition. No problems were reported during the contest.
- What did not work so well?
- Unfortunately in some of Wikipedias the activity was very low, which didn't give us the opportunity to create more content in them.
- What would you do differently next time?
- I think we should be more active in promoting our marathon next time. This may help us to increase the number and activity of participants.
