The fourth London Wikimeet took place on Sunday the 11th of September, 2005, from 13:00 GMT at a pub called "The Archery Tavern" just to the North-East of Lancaster Gate tube station in West London. Discussion was very wide-ranging, but included the perennial concept of creating a UK chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation.
Excellent pub, good food and good beer. And no cricket. I believe the afternoon got more productive the drunker we got - David Gerard 12:42, 12 September 2005 (UTC)
- Surely the lack of cricket would have been a problem. Don't you Aussies keep up with current events? Never mind, I'll take pity on you and let you in on the result - England regained the Ashes by beating Australia 2-1:) jguk 23:34, 12 September 2005 (UTC)
- Cricket on the telly in the back room! LoopZilla 08:09, 14 September 2005 (UTC)
- are there any pictures up yet?
- Oh dear. I think I'm glad that I managed to run away just before that started. :-)

- Very wise decision... Justinc 22:32, 12 September 2005 (UTC)
- Some of the questions we got wrong -
- how many years it was since Northern Ireland last beat England in an unspecified sport, and who scorred in the most recent match?,
- identify these celebreties (we identified Richard Wilson, Vic Reeves, Marilyn Manson and a couple of others but we got less than half)
- which two people are planning to row the atlantic naked?
- identifying catchphrases - we got a couple, but we didn't know the ones from pre-1980s TV programs.
- Which US state is known as the Badger state?
- Which element comes directly below Tin on the periodic table?
- What is xphobia a fear of. We got logophobia and a couple of others, we didn't get pantophobia or most of the rest.
- What was the hit song from the 2002 film Monsters Inc?
- Which 19th Century operetas was such-and-such a song from
- and many others that I can't remember. We did do all of this without cheating though! Thryduulf 23:22, 12 September 2005 (UTC)

If anyone who was lucky enough to make it fancies writing an article for the Signpost, that would be great. Leave a note in the Newsroom, where there's help on how to make an article. the wub "?/!" 11:12, 15 September 2005 (UTC)
I've finally got around to uploading the photos I took at the meetup (sorry its taken so long). However, my memory for names has let me down, and the captions are in need of attention - you can help! All the images are on the commons (follow the big link on this page) and named in the format Wikimeet-London4-Thryduulf-??.jpg, just go ahead and edit the description page. I will spot your edits on my watchlist, but drop me a note on my talk page here or at the commons if you want. Thryduulf 22:16, 27 September 2005 (UTC)

- I'm working a long night shift on the Saturday, I really don't fancy my chances of making it unless my shift changes or I get fired. Maybe next time though. Rje 03:50, July 28, 2005 (UTC)
- Sorry, it would be nice but I have other things planned for then. Maybe next time we'll have a meetup OUTSIDE of London for a change (now there's a radical idea) G-Man 16:43, 31 July 2005 (UTC)
- So organise one ;-p - David Gerard 11:27, 10 September 2005 (UTC)

- Determined to make it to a meetup one of these days, unfortunately not likely to be possible this time however. — Trilobite (Talk) 12:48, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
- Even though I'm not in London I would have come down for this one but I'm going away the next day and need to prepare for that. As per G-Man's suggestion, I'm well up for organising something further <whisper>north</whisper> of London. Cormaggio 18:13, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
- Will be at The Oval, jguk 09:32, 29 August 2005 (UTC)
- Would love to, but probably will be working in Edinburgh... Shimgray 12:57, 1 September 2005 (UTC)
- MrWeeble - Afraid I am away for that weekend. Maybe next time.
- Busy preparing for university, sorry. Talrias (t | e | c) 01:33, 5 September 2005 (UTC)
- I'm sorry, same with me too :-( -- Joolz 08:48, 7 September 2005 (UTC)
- I can't make it this time, but hope to next year :-(, sorry Craigy (talk) 14:07, September 7, 2005 (UTC)
- Can't make it, but I hope to get to the next one. the wub "?/!" 15:01, 7 September 2005 (UTC)

- Enchanter 23:28, July 19, 2005 (UTC) Sorry, maybe next time!
