DC Meetup #13
Wednesday, November 17, 2010 — 7-9 p.m.
Who should come? You should. Really.

If you are interested in Wikipedia or other Wikimedia projects, regardless of your level of experience or involvement, or if you are otherwise involved with free content you are invited and welcome.

What, Where, When, and How?[edit]


The purpose of this meetup is to discuss and plan activities of the local DC Wikimedia group, and allow people to give short presentations (lightning talks?) on projects they (you!) are working on and are of interest to the group.

Topics for discussion:

  • Yay! sounds very interesting! --Aude (talk) 16:55, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
  • That is very interesting, you might want to look at what I did for the Army Center of Military History, (you can see the COI statement at User:Sadads/CMH, and I can talk to you about my thought behind it if you would like sometime. The Army actually has a policy best practice to engage Wikipedia, believe it or not. Unfortunately I cannot come up to DC on Wednesday, though I would be willing to meet up with you either over the weekend, next week or if we do a meetup at the end of December/beginning of January, Sadads (talk) 18:33, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Super! I may contact you before the next meetup. Do you know if any policy specifics are available online? It would be good to see an example. -- Econterms (talk) 16:00, 17 November 2010 (UTC),
  • Here is one I found thus far: , I am trying to find the show that explicitly said something of the nature of "respect the community on Wikipedia but as the public relations officer you are responsible for making sure that unit and commander pages don't present anything libelous or unavailable to the public". I was forwarded it by one of the Army staff I was working with. Also, the Air Force pretty much leave it open in publications like . I should take back the term policy, and rephrase best practice. I am not finding the original source anywhere though, Sadads (talk) 22:08, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
