Full Meetup Calendar

How about having a meetup for editors of the English Wikipedia in Finland in the near future? Thoughts and ideas (where and when)? Possible participants? --KFP (talk | contribs) 11:30, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Count me in. -- Cimon Avaro; on a pogostick. (talk) 15:14, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
A great idea!! I will definitely attend! If no other suitable place will turn up, what about Suvikuja 4 in Tapiola? --Tellervo (talk) 16:53, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
If it's held between eastern Espoo and central Helsinki then I'm interested. JIP | Talk 19:29, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
My, aren't you picky! :) Anyway, yeah, I guess I could come if the time isn't bad for me. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 15:57, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Hmm. I believe central Helsinki would be the easiest to reach for most and is the most versatile area. A restaurant, perhaps? --KFP (talk | contribs) 17:37, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

  • What about either of two cafe´s in central Helsinki close to the Esplanadi: Cafe´Strindberg or Cafe´Fazer? Are they maybe too small? I know very little about restaurants in central Helsinki,
  • so I leave it to others to propose. --Tellervo (talk) *11:39, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
  • I could stop by if it's on a weekend, but I'd likely end up getting drunk and rambling about deletionists. --Kizor (talk) 05:42, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
Hehe, that's ok with me, at least. --KFP (talk | contribs) 17:57, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
And me, too! --Tellervo (talk) 11:47, 23 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Soo... Having the meetup on a weekend would seem to be the best option. Which one? Also, would you prefer a café, a restaurant or a pub or something else? --KFP (talk | contribs) 18:00, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Just as a note, there are at the very least three Irish Pubs within very short walking distance from the railway station. Kitty O'Sheas, Dubliners and Molly Malones, with Molly Malones being the oldest one, but is usually rather well filled due to that fact. If we are meeting early in the day and/or middle of the week, Kitty O'Sheas is likely secluded enough, as to be very quiet, and conducive to discussion, but would necessitate meeting at some central point beforehand, as finding there is half the trick. A good midway solution would be the Dubliners, as it is easy enough to find, and it has recesses that are fairly nicely private. That said, a good cafe would be nice, but I don't know any such near the center. All the ones I know are types that I find somehow un-cosy, too busy for my taste (I don't mind a little life around me if I have beer in front of me, but with a cup of coffee it is a bit different, would much prefer a placid environs). -- Cimon Avaro; on a pogostick. (talk) 21:10, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
  • A quiet café or bar sounds good to me. Have we ruled Kallio outside the target zone already? There are several quite nice places in that area, including some that serve both decent coffee and beer. How many people are we expecting, anyway? Nice and cozy cafés often tend to be rather small. :( —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 04:52, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Well, I live in Merihaka, so that clearly would be convenient for me personally. Not sure which particular places you had in mind. Good coffee is pretty much the thing to go for if we choose a venue in the Kallio-Hakaniemi-Sörnäinen triangle. -- Cimon Avaro; on a pogostick. (talk) 08:28, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Note, if we do decide on Kallio region, and meet on a saturday or monday, we might go for "jatkot" at Kallion Seurahovi. They have a pub quiz there on those evenings, with pretty okay prizes. Would be curious to see how well a team of wikipedians would fare against the regulars. -- Cimon Avaro; on a pogostick. (talk) 16:36, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
  • I would suggest a nice, small restaurant in Punavuori [Tori]. It ought to be easily accessible from Merihaka and even Espoo.-- Tellervo (talk) 18:05, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Anytime is pretty much fine, but not the end of this month. [[1]] is pretty quiet during the day, but gets louder as each hour goes by. Usually has good music in the evenings. Anyplace is fine though :) -Yupik (talk) 03:50, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Keskustelun uudelleenkäynnistys[edit]

Tällä sivulla ei ole ollut keskustelua pitkään aikaan. Olen miettinyt kehtaisiko tätä koettaa uudemman kerran. Yllä olevassa vanhassa keskustelussa mielestäni vahvin ehdokas on ollut Juttutupa. Mielestäni se on kuitenkin suhteellisen iso paikka. Aivan viime kuukausina Hakaniemeen on ilmaantunut uusi ravitsemusliike nimeltä Morris, aivan Kolmannen linjan juurella (ovi Hämeentien puolella kulmassa). Se on varustettu portaissa pyörätuoli hissillä, ja Hämeentien puolella siinä on syvennys jossa on kaksi yleisötietokonetta internet-yhteyksin. Henkilökunta on ystävällistä, kahvivalikoima kattava ja sopuhintainen. Olutkin on selkeästi keskustaa huokeampaa. Hakaniemen metroasemalta sinne kävelee parissa minuutissa (vain kahdet liikennevalot), joten Rautatieasemaltakin sinne saapuu helposti 10 minuutissa, eikä tee edes tiukkaa. Kuullostaako hyvältä?

Tapaamisen ajankohta[edit]

Tuohon ylle ei ole tullut vähään aikaan uusia kommentteja/ääniä. Olisi silti kiva jos nekin jotka eivät ole vielä mitään tuohon ilmaisseet, lisäisivät nimensä johonkin plakkariin. Mutta ennen kuin asetellaan varsinaista äänestystä tapaamisen ajankohdasta, olisi hyva että ensin vähän keskusteltaisiin vapaasti minkälaisia ajatuksia tapaamisen ajankohdasta löytyy.

  • Eli joko nyt kesän aikana, vai onko koulujen alkamisen jälkeen parempi?
  • Viikolla? Esimerkiksi maanantaina, tiistaina tai keskiviikkona ravintola on varmasti hiljaisempi pitkin päivää ja kansainvälisesti esimerkiksi Britit tapaavat "wiki-keskiviikkoina". Vaiko viikonloppuna? Esimerkiksi lauantaissa olisi se hyvä puoli että tapaaminen voitaisiin helpommin avata keskipäivän tienoilla, ehkä jopa hieman ennen, joidenkin mielestä. Ja tietysti tarvittaessa jos paikka vilkastuu illan myötä liikaa, onhan aina mahdollisuus siirtyä jatkoille rauhallisempaan paikkaan mikäli intoa ja juttua riittää. Sunnutai on usein lauantaita hiljaisempi ilta, mutta silti joillekin vapaapäivä. Sunnuntaina voitaisiin ehkä avata kokous jopa lauantaita aikaisemmin.
  • Mihin aikaan päivää? Luonnollisesti tämä jossain määrin on yhteydessä siihen tapaammeko viikolla vai lauantaina tai sunnuntaina.

Vapaata keskustelua tapaamisen ajankohdasta[edit]

Kesäisin pääsen päiväsaikana (kun olen kerrankin lomalla koko kesän :D), mutta sitten esim. illalla mulla pitäisi olla hyvä varoitusaika tapaamisesta, jotta saan lastenlikan hommattua. Jos joku tykkää erityisesti tietovisailusta, vois yhdistää sellaista ja wikitapaamista, esim. IESAFilla on tietovisailu Molly Malone'sissa joka kuun ensimmäisenä keskiviikkona klo 19. Ennen sitä voisi mennä vaikka syömään tai kahville. Nämä ovat vain sellaisia heittoja, joten muukin käy :D Laitan myös linkin suomenkieliseen wikitapaamissivuun, koska se on aivan kuollut. -Yupik (talk) 22:42, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Itselläni on päivät töissä ja viikonloput matkoilla. Kesäleski nääs D100a (talk) 16:08, 27 June 2010 (UTC)
