March meetup[edit]

March 26, 2016, 9 AM to 1 PM. Wikipedia Edit-a-thon Party. The edit-a-thon will be held in the Mission Valley Library in San Diego, 2123 Fenton Pwy. We will meet for breakfast at IHOP, 2169 Fenton Pwy, at 9AM. We will go next door to the library around 10 AM. If you come by trolley, take the Green Line to Fenton Pwy. If you drive, there is plenty of parking. Bring your laptop! This is a fun group of people that will make you feel at home. Please let us know if you're interested with messages to Swedam (talk)

Note: this meeting was originally scheduled for March 19, and has been rescheduled to March 26. If anyone can edit the Meetup box on the page, we can't get to it to remove the March 19 date. Thanks very much! DrMel (talk) 18:54, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

February meetup[edit]

A Wikipedian Sebastian Wallroth will be here in San Diego from 3 to 8 February and would like to meetup with local Wikipedians here in the San Diego area. I would be up for it but would only be available on Monday the 3rd, or Saturday the 8th after 1600; however, it is far enough in advance that I can change my schedule around to accommodate a meetup. Would anyone else be interested in meeting a German Wikipedian?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 01:44, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

I would like to meet with Mr. Wallroth. Those dates are open at this time, I would to get a specific date soon, if possible. Monday the 3rd or Saturday the 8th are good. Jim1138 (talk) 22:20, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

I would be up for a Monday 3 FEB meeting, say in the afternoon, pre-dinner, for an hour or two?-RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 01:39, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
It's getting closer to the date, where are we at with this? Is it just Jim1138 and myself interested in meeting this German Wikipedian?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 11:23, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
I'm still interested in a meeting. I'll reside at The Dana on Mission Bay arriving on Sunday February 2nd. --Sebastian Wallroth (talk) 10:38, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
OK, are you planning anything mid-afternoon on Monday 3 February? What about you Jim?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 12:50, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
Anything happening today? Jim1138 (talk) 20:10, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
Hey! I'm interested in a February meetup too. I'll be here in SD for the next 8 weeks. --trm 03:41, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride[edit]

Are there any SD residents interested in participating in Wiki Loves Pride 2014, a multi-national effort to improve coverage of LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects? Perhaps an edit-a-thon or a photography project? Please visit the project page for details or let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! --Another Believer (Talk) 17:36, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Anyone from San Diego going to LA Wiknic?[edit]

I missed the San Diego Wiknic - still feeling very much the newb. Would love to connect with others in SD / SoCal. Wondering if any SD wikipedians are heading to LA Wiknic on July 6? DrMel (talk) 23:36, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

April 2015[edit]

I am thinking of holding a meetup this March. I had stopped editing heavily for a while, and have since returned, and it has been a while since an actual meetup has occurred. I have become involved in a fandom community in Southern California, so many of my free weekends are already booked. How does April 11th (Saturday), in the evening, sound to everyone?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 18:50, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

I think I'm available. Feel free to ping me nearer the time. Bovlb (talk) 06:42, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
While I live in Chula Vista, I think a central location, accessible to public transit would be good for everyone. Also should we chose a place that serves adult beverages? food?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 19:14, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
I'd love to join if I'm in town. Helping with an Art edit-a-thon at UC Irvine March 7 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/Irvine/ArtandFeminism/UC_Irvine). Definitely interested in getting edit-a-thons happening here in SD, especially on psychology and "quality of life" related articles. DrMel (talk) 22:31, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
@Bovlb: & @DrMel: How does 11 April sound to everyone, say a casual meetup after 1730PDT? If we want to actually work on stuff, we can look at the following day 12 April.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 01:27, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
I put it in my calendar. I'm North County so somewhere a little north of SD would work well for me. Bovlb (talk) 21:46, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
@Bovlb: & @DrMel:, I have created a new page to carry on our discussion: Wikipedia:Meetup/San Diego/April 2015.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 03:30, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

January 2016[edit]

I know this is WAY in the future, but I would like to know who from WP:CAL, WP:SAN, and WP:MLP would be interested in being on a panel at a convention, specifically about the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fandom.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 01:44, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

This is not a confirmation of panel participation, but to see whom maybe interested.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 01:58, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
  • I'd be interested, but I don't live anywhere near San Diego, so I'm not sure if I could possibly make it. Everymorning talk 02:05, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
San Diego is too far for me to travel. Dogman15 (talk) 03:36, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
From Northern California, it is an eight hour drive, perhaps Dogman15 can carpool with those who are coming down?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 04:46, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Heh, I'm interested to come. But seeing that I'm from Australia, there's a very low chance that I can come. Seeing that international airfare is quite expensive here XP Good luck to whoever goes ^^ ILM126 (talk) 10:06, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, location disparity – I'm a Singaporean. (I also note that I'm no longer interested in the Wikipedia MLPFIM articles, though I still contribute at the E club and on pony/art sites elsewhere.) Parcly Taxel 12:45, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Late October 2016 meetup[edit]

Who is interested in attending a meetup in late October, hosted by Dr. Mel, in Mission Valley, with the goal of starting a usergroup and getting edit-a-thons started back up again.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 02:30, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Here is a meetup.com posting for the event here.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 20:18, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
