Hi friends at African affiliates,
I would like to share our video from the Asia-Pacific panel, to give you a
better idea of format:
We welcome pre-recorded segments of about 2 minutes from every affiliate in
Africa. This might be especially useful if you might have an internet
connection or other technical problem during the livestream; ideally we
want a mix of both live and recorded segments, and we can have live people
introduce recorded segments - see how it works in the Asia-Pacific video.
The pre-recorded segments can be in any language, from Arabic to French to
Swahili to anything else, but it would be good if possible to have
captioning in English. We would ask that you upload the pre-recorded videos
to Youtube, because it is easiest to download and play them from there.
Please get your videos uploaded by Wednesday if you can.
I am going to propose that we have a test broadcast on Thursday January 21
at 16:00 UTC, which is exactly 48 hours before the real broadcast. This
will be useful to get acquainted with the Streamyard software we will be
using and test out videos and screen-sharing. The Streamyard software
generally works best with the Chrome browser.
Please add your affiliate to the list on the meta page, and encourage your
regional friends to join too!
We'd also be glad to answer any questions either here, or you can write to
Justice, Andrew and me privately.

Hi African Affiliates,
Like you are aware we are having a Wikipedia 20 Africa Virtual Event. Like
we discuss the other time Bobby Shabangu, Winnie Kabintie and myself have
taken lead in making sure this happens.
We are happy to also get the folks at Wikipedia Weekly to livestream this
event for us on January 23 at 14pm UTC. Find more details on this page on
the Meta page attached below. We would update it as much as possible,
and also put in your affiliates name if you want to participate.
Also, African Affiliates can submit short pre-recorded videos of 2 minutes
or less of what Wikipedia at 20 means to them. We are still planning which
means to use to collect the videos so if yours is ready send them over to
us. There would be a panel discussion too so all potential affiliates who
would want to be on the panel can add their name and ping us.
You can also support this CentralNotice banner here.
Looking forward to hearing from you all soon.
Happy 20th Birthday to Wikipedia.
