7th Delhi Meetup was attended by 13 new and existing Wikipedians.
The session started with introductions and with each person talking about what they wanted to get out of the meet-up.
All except one of the participants had their user accounts on Wikipedia. Noopur and Subha explained the basics of Wikipedia (nature of articles, NPOV, copyright, etc). One of the attendees were invited to create his own user account. Subha explained the basics of editing and invited one participant to edit an article of his choice. The reason we did this was so that interest levels were high and that the newbie could felt pride in his contribution. The article they choose was "Pav bhaji". Through the course of his editing, the audience learnt about basic edit and referencing. Noopur then explained Commons, and showed how to upload a picture and place it in a Wikipedia page.
Noopur talked about GLAM Project Crafts Museum, Delhi and requested participation, and a session at the Museum was planned on March 18th.
After the session, there was a Q&A session where questions were answered about writing on Wikipedia, kind of images to upload and what to do to see if an image available on Google can be uploaded.
Folks hung out and and they were (photo & video) graphed explaining their experience of editing.
Here are some visuals from the event.
