Wikipedia and You - How to Edit, Upload and Read!Edit

This is the organisation page for the Wikipedia Editing Day on the 12th of November at Manchester Digital Laboratory in conjunction with Manchester Girl Geeks. The day started with a talk on the basics of Wikipedia. After that however, the discussions focused on the following topics:

  • Assist members of the public in using Wikipedia (including creating their accounts and making their first edits)
  • Teach members of the public how to correct errors on Wikipedia (sometimes in a way that ensures a lack of COI)
  • Teach members of the public how to critically assess articles
  • Teach members of the public how to upload images under a free license

The signup page was here.


The full address is:

36-40 Edge St
M4 1HN

The rough timings were 10am-4pm.

List of Parties Interested in Future EventsEdit

  • I'd be well up for this. Jimmy was on Radio 3 last night talking about the problems caused by us being 87% male. Unfortunately I'm gonna be in London. Up for future events. Yaris678 19:28, 5 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Bad timing as I'm doing a shift the night before. Certainly would be interested in future events. WormTT 13:26, 9 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
