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?
Well the Spotted dick is up, have a few that came out ok are at User:Justinc/MeetupLondon4. Justinc 22:32, 12 September 2005 (UTC)

Many missed the drunken attempt at the pub quiz. We came a clear bottom! Secretlondon 15:15, 12 September 2005 (UTC)

Oh dear. I think I'm glad that I managed to run away just before that started. :-)
James F. (talk) 17:42, 12 September 2005 (UTC)
Very wise decision... Justinc 22:32, 12 September 2005 (UTC)
Some of the questions we got wrong -
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)

  1. I'll be thousands of miles away between Aug 1st and Jul 31st. I'm in town on Saturday if you want to bring it forward though! :) Joe D (t) 23:30, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
  2. I'll most likely be in Berlin. Angela. 23:07, July 20, 2005 (UTC)
  3. Sadly I will in fact be chaving it up in Tenerife. -- Francs2000 | Talk 00:01, 21 July 2005 (UTC)
  4. 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)
  5. 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)
  6. Was looking forward to it, but I have other stuff happening all weekend. Curses. Next time. Telsa 10:15, 12 August 2005 (UTC)
  7. 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)
  8. 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)
    "North" of London, you say? Hmm. So Brighton's out, is it? OK, OK, you twist my arm. How about Watford? :-) James F. (talk) 23:40, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
    How about Wikipedia:Meetup/Birmingham in January? Responses there rather than here are probably best. —Theo (Talk) 10:01, 20 August 2005 (UTC)
  9. Will be at The Oval, jguk 09:32, 29 August 2005 (UTC)
  10. Would love to, but probably will be working in Edinburgh... Shimgray 12:57, 1 September 2005 (UTC)
  11. MrWeeble - Afraid I am away for that weekend. Maybe next time.
  12. Busy preparing for university, sorry. Talrias (t | e | c) 01:33, 5 September 2005 (UTC)
  13. I'm sorry, same with me too :-( -- Joolz 08:48, 7 September 2005 (UTC)
  14. I can't make it this time, but hope to next year :-(, sorry Craigy Flag of the United Kingdom.svg (talk) 14:07, September 7, 2005 (UTC)
  15. Can't make it, but I hope to get to the next one. the wub "?/!" 15:01, 7 September 2005 (UTC)
  16. Sorry ... the cricket is just on such a knife-edge that I'm staying to watch it. Go England! --Vamp:Willow 09:54, 11 September 2005 (UTC)
  17. Enchanter 23:28, July 19, 2005 (UTC) Sorry, maybe next time!
