Riverside Precinct Brisbane Meetup
Next: Saturday 21 November 2015

Next meetup[edit]

POSTPONED - planned venue suddenly unavailable! Please discuss a new date/place here.

Wikipedia's 15th birthday is on Friday 15 January 2016. So having our next meetup around that time seems like a good idea. I'm guessing that the Friday might not suit a lot of people due to work commitments so I am wondering how people feel about a meetup on Saturday 16 January 2016 for a slightly belated birthday party! Please discuss here.Kerry (talk) 02:56, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

  • smadge1 (talk) 19:54, 23 June 2011 (UTC) I can't really make it with 2 days notice, but maybe next time!
  • Advanstra (talk) 16:39, 16 February 2014 (UTC) Any meetups in 2014? Gold Coast perhaps?
  • Kerry (talk) 00:22, 17 February 2014 (UTC) We are thinking of having a gathering at the State Library of Queensland some time "soon". We are talking with SLQ but no date has been set yet. If you are looking to organise a Gold Coast event, talk to the local studies librarians at the Southport library; they are interested in supporting local Wikipedians and they have nice facilities there. Email me for more specific contact details. Kerry (talk) 00:22, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
