Procedure and advice

2016 Art+Feminism Wikipedia edit-a-thon
thumb
  • Create the page
    • Use or create a sub page of Wikipedia:Meetup to organize the meeting.
    • Make it easy to sign up, with simple subsections like Likely attendees, Possible attendees and Regrets for signup lists, as at Meetup/NYC.
    • See Wikipedia Meetups - A design pattern catalogue for advice about Locations, Timing, People, and Topics.
  • Attract attendees
    • Solicit invitations of geographically local Wikipedia users.
    • Create a geonotice request.
    • Create a list of Wikipedians interested in future and regular meetups for a given location where they can sign up (alternatively, userboxes with corresponding categories can be used).
    • Use other media outside of Wikipedia to advertise to non-Wikipedia users
      • Post a notice at the relevant page of wikipedia.meetup.com
      • Post a couple of notices on Craigslist (free).
      • Word of mouth is always an option.
    • Don't be afraid to spam people: Make a big list like Meetup/NYC/Invite list from all people who have ever expressed interest in attending a meetup, as well as all people in categories like Category:Wikipedians in Philadelphia, the Philadelphia userbox and other regional categories.
      • Don't manually post notices to all the editors who are listed in a geographical category. Simply post a request at WP:BOTREQ, asking for a bot owner to have a bot deliver the (specified) message to everyone in the category.
    • Place notices at talk pages like Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Philadelphia and even Talk:Philadelphia.
    • Contact your local chapter - if you have one - who will be able to contact people in the local area, or help you in other ways.
  • Organize event
    • Organize location
    • Organize eating arrangements
    • Settle on a definite time and place, and don't change it. If someone is just bold, people will know about the date a few weeks in advance (instead of a couple of days), which will make planning easier for individuals. Getting input from everyone is good, but you don't need a formal vote on everything, which can delay the process.
    • Consider whether you want any sort of agenda for the meetup (like a discussion on a specific topic, or forming a local chapter).

Past meetups

There have been many meetups in various locations across the globe.
