Birmingham Wikimedia Meetup Number 4Edit

Sunday 15 November 2015 — 13:00 onwardsEdit

Venue: The Old Joint Stock[1], 4 Temple Row West, Birmingham, B2 5NY
Coordinates: 52.48077°, -1.90011°

It's a nice old building (by J. A. Chatwin) and has nice beer too. It also has a theatre!

Wikimeets are mainly casual social events. You can expect to meet some very keen Wikipedians, however this is also an open invitation for anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, projects re-using Wikipedia, and other collaborative wiki projects. Also wiki technology, MediaWiki, discussing the business impact of mass collaboration, or articles about the West Midlands will also be relevant here. Feel free to come along and raise these discussions over a beverage of your choice.

This is a quiet, family-friendly pub, so hopefully younger Wikimedians will still feel welcome and safe.

Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

  • Maybe. If there is a clash with Oxford it will depend who is going to which one that will make the decision for me. If there is no clash I'll come to Birmingham (but wont be able to make the weekend of the 7th). Thryduulf (en.wikt,en.wp,commons) 21:33, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
  • I'm sorry about the clash with Oxford, but I really would like to see a meeting in Birmingham again, and Yaris' note that he was passing through on that day was the trigger to get one going. I will do my best to get to the following Oxford meeting, but I feel obliged to be at this Birmingham meetup. --RexxS (talk) 18:31, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

  • OK then, rail replacement buses permitting. @Rich Farmbrough: Oxford 34 is Sun 29 Nov, none in December, Oxford 35 is Sun 17 Jan. --Redrose64 (talk; at English Wikipedia) 10:48, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
