Report[edit]

  • Due to some problems with publicity and a couple of late cancellations we only had 5 attendees this time. However we had a good amount of discussion.

Discussion[edit]

  • Some need to tidy the Wikipedia:WikiProject New Zealand page.
    • Answer questions people have
    • Provide HOWTO ( Step by Step ) and suggest 10 minute or 2 hour projects
      • Create requested articles
      • Assessments
      • Find photos in Flickr
    • Approach people to write articles or provide background information to base articles on
    • most of the above are not hard just, need somebody with time and inclination.
  • Requested photos
    • Create subcats for NZ photos
  • Need more assessment of articles
  • Lots of missing photos, Some success reported searching flickr and sending authors their requests.
  • Some general articles that cross areas missing ( "sustainability in New Zealand" )
  • Next meeting could perhaps be a copy of "wikis take Manhattan" with groups across Auckland ( and perhaps other centers) taking photos ( and other media) and uploading it to Wikipedia, followed by meeting. Suggested date is February 2009 to take advantage of summer weather.
