Passcode[edit]

I've tried to "Join program" on the Dashboard for several events, and always get rejected for not giving the passcode: Incorrect passcode

Is this intentional, or did someone neglect to turn off the passcode demand, or to post the code publicly, or miss some other important step? I intend simply to show up at tomorrow morning's A+F at MoMA, expecting to be welcome, but are the others only for people who have been given the passcode in advance?

About the event log[edit]

@Jim.henderson: You have been looking over on-wiki event records at Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC/Event archive. Some WM NYC chapter organizers have been talking about changing the way the chapter lists events. I wanted to propose a change and get your thoughts.

We do not currently have a place where all NYC-area events are listed. Part of the reason for this is some confusion about whether events need to be approved by a chapter committee before being listed here. Since this is a meetup/NYC page, and not necessarily a chapter event page, I would like to start listing any regional wiki event here on this page in chronological order by year. If beyond that, someone wants to sort the main list into other lists of "approved", "not approved", "editathon", "workshop", "registration required" or other categories, then they can, but to start I want to have a place where anyone can list anything without discussion. Here are some events that I would list -

One of these was a private presentation to a group of 30 students in a class and the other was a private presentation of Wikipedia research at a University department meeting. I would like for anyone tracking metrics to have access to, for example, this record of the 30 students editing Wikipedia articles because this is of interest to groups including Wikimedia NYC, the education program, the medicine group, and others. Could I get comments from you about changing this event log to include all sorts of Wikipedia events?

Also, I would appreciate thoughts from anyone else here. Blue Rasberry (talk) 14:44, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

+1 I'd like to see all area events listed here (those WMNYC-sponsored and otherwise), but if the "event archive" page is being used for specific WMNYC purposes, then the solution might be to fork it czar 18:16, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
czar Thanks - I really appreciate the feedback. The recent imagining has been to use this page as a log for WMNYC events, which means that many events in the area have not been logged. As you say, I would rather have a comprehensive list of every event which anyone wishes to share, then let any individual sort out in their own forked list elsewhere what they wish to count for their own purposes.

Then the question is, which comes first, the chicken or the egg? I'm more with czar's idea that the chapter events list stays where it is, since that's what the greater number of WMNYC members care about. From that we also fork off the long, simple, chronological list having pretty much all local events of Wiki significance, only loved by the most deeply involved. That's where next week's private Library Council meeting belongs, I figure, but it's a small question. Jim.henderson (talk) 16:26, 6 April 2017 (UTC)
Even smaller for me now. Good weather has put me on wheels doing photography. I'll be busy with pictures all month at least, and hope my words of last month do not interfere with deciding this question properly. Jim.henderson (talk) 00:09, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
