Next: Saturday 21 November 2015
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)

- We book the tables one week before the date.
- We meet on the decided date.
- We dine together, socialise and chat.
- We share the bill and go home.

- I can usually make it up to Brisbane given a bit of warning; I've attended many of the Melbourne meetups. John Vandenberg (chat) 09:06, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
- NemoThorx (talk) has been to a couple of Canberra meetups (and helped organise one of them), and is now based in Brisbane. Not interested in organising a meetup, but will endeavour to attend if it happens!
- 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)
- I've been to the inaugural Brisbane meetup and I'd be interested in participating in the future. — JamesR (talk) 14:39, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
