Wikipedia:Meetup/GenderGap edit-a-thon in Brussels, March 2018
On 8 March 2018 the Permanent Representation of Sweden to the EU organises the GenderGap edit-a-thon, supported by Wikimedia Belgium and European Women’s Lobby.
The (simplified) guidelines on Wikipedia, resting on the five pillars, include:
- Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, the content that you add must fit in an encyclopedia.
- Write in a neutral point of view.
- All content added must be free content that anyone can use, edit, and distribute. (copyrights)
- Use references to source facts in your article.
- Sign your messages in talk pages with

First: welcome to Wikipedia!
Before you start writing, please keep the following thoughts in mind:
- add to Wikipedia only knowledge that is suitable for an encyclopedia
- add only material that is available under a free license or describe knowledge in your own words
- describe the knowledge from a neutral point of view
- add references and sources where the information can be found
- do not write about your own organisation nor about yourself, a family member or your boss
- do not describe new theories, new insights that have not been published widely
- look at comparable subjects as examples of how it is done
- use headers to structure an article
- use internal links (links to other articles on Wikipedia in that language)
- do not use links inline in the text, but only as reference or at the bottom of a page
- avoid qualifications like "the best", "the most", "great" and write time specific (not: "last year", "coming month", etc., but: "on 10 April 2016")
Please start writing in your sandbox. The link to your personal sandbox you can find on top of every page (if you are logged in).
