Wikipedia turned 15 on January 15, 2016.

This space served as:
- A space to organize and plan events and meetups locally to celebrate the 15th;
- Tips and inspiration on how to organize and run an event;
- A place to share birthday photos, videos, stories, favorite articles, and more;
- A collection of tips for pitching to local media.
- Readers were encouraged to tweet with the hashtag #Wikipedia15.
