Wikimeets are mainly casual social events. You can expect to meet some very keen Wikipedians, however this is also an open invite 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 Greater Manchester will also be relevant here. Feel free to come along and raise these discussions over a beverage of your choice.

We usually meet in a quiet, family-friendly pub, so hopefully younger Wikimedians will still feel welcome and safe. Look for a small Wikimedia banner on the table, and we may also have laptops out.

Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

Please sign below if you intend to come. If you want a reminder closer to the time, please leave a note after your signature.Edit

ApologiesEdit

  • Actually, I've just realised that this is London Marathon day. As the marathon almost passes my door, I'll be watching that on this occasion. Maybe next time! Thryduulf (en.wikt,en.wp,commons) 18:48, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
  • It will be my birthday and my daughter is visiting for the weekend. Maybe next month. --RexxS (talk) 23:31, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
  • I'll join you one of these days, but can't make it this Sunday. PamD (talk) 06:58, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
