"London" Wikimedia Meetup Number 164Edit

Another bonus virtual meetup to help us through another national lockdown!

Date and time: Sunday 24 January 2021 13:00—18:00
(join at any time you can, no need to stay for the whole afternoon)

Location: Online
We will use Zoom video chat, the link is below. the wub will host.

Note that we're using video conferencing, but there's no obligation to have your camera on if you prefer not to show your face. Or indeed your microphone: some people do just come along to listen in.

Although this meetup is a continuation of the regular "London" pub gatherings, going virtual means that geography is no longer a constraint so do feel free to join from anywhere you may be, in the UK or elsewhere!

Please invite any Wikimedia people you know (or have had wiki dealings with) who might be interested – spread the word!

  • @The wub: you told me this was once a month not every 2 weeks! Quizzicalmind159 (talk) 20:04, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Yes ClemRutter (talk) 10:38, 20 January 2021 (UTC)Technical Zoom Question. On a Free Zoom account, how do I automatically save the chat on exit. Is it possible. If yes- how? If not can we have a link to to previous chats that someone must have recorded. Googling Zoom finds methods of saving when on line- but then gets confused on using the Free Version and the Professional Version. ClemRutter (talk) 11:10, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
    • Hi @ClemRutter:, on Zoom you can't save chat unless you screenshot it and copy and paste it. Hope this clears it up for you Clem! See you on Sunday!Quizzicalmind159 (talk) 21:37, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
