Welcome back from Wikimania 2018!



Uzbek Wikipedia


Option 1: Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?

After returning home, I wrote an article about my experiences in Cape Town and the Wikimedia movement in general and had it published on the website of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's Uzbek Service.

Add a link here to a blog post or newsletter you wrote about your participation afterwards, or to a meet-up you organized to share your experience with your local community.
Option 2: Learning Pattern: What is one useful learning pattern you can share with the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to a learning pattern - either a new pattern you created with insights from your participation, or an existing pattern to which you added your endorsement and some significant new "considerations" or “examples” from your experience.
Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome that was created at the event for the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to something new that was created as a result of your participation in this event (for example, you might link to a new tool that you and your co-participants worked on at the Hackathon, or to pages created in a workshop you participated in).


This time I met a great number of fellow Wikimedians. I also attended the Wikimedia Asia meetup and signed up for the Wikipedia Asian Month 2018.

Anything elseEdit

Me speaking Uzbek for Wikitongues

While attending the conference, I

  • had various conversations with conference attendees about the wikis in the languages of the five stans of Central Asia;
  • recorded a video for Wikitongues in my native language;
  • signed up for Wikipedia Library for the very first time;
  • learned about applying for project and event grants (PEG).
