  • In one of the largest open movement events in Albania, this infoboth has the best chance to attract/recruit new Wikipedians into our community. Liridon (talk) 21:06, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Important to show presence at this major open source event in Albania especially as Wikipedia is not a big topic in the presentations calendar. Albinfo (talk) 15:56, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
