came across this by accident. We should perhaps also move some of our stuff. Too bad they are doing this without announcing a bit wider, but lets just move it away and find a more permanent solution. Using a wiki for this kinda sucks but I guess we won't be able to get around it. Don't forget to add a __NOINDEX__ everywhere. Anyone who wants to move everything linked from ?

Assunto: [cultural-partners] Help moving content off of Etherpads
Para: Wikimedia Chapters cultural partners coordination <>

Hello all,

WMF staff are currently discussing making some changes to the Wikimedia Etherpad system. We in the GLAM sphere are very guilty of being overly dependent on Etherpad for basic documentation of our events, and not following up with moving that content on-wiki. At this point we really should get all of our content off of Etherpad.  And in the future when we use Etherpad (which is a fine thing to use, btw, just not for storing) -- we need to be better about moving it on-wiki as we go.

I just don't have the time to tackle this right now, so I'd be much appreciative if someone would be bold and help move our documentation onto Outreach talk pages or anywhere else that it may make sense for it to live. (I'll say again, be bold!)

As a gift, I have for you my listing of Amsterdam Etherpads (which is where we were most prolific), for your convenience: 

There are also links to Etherpads on the various event pages, particularly the New York GLAMcamp and the DC GLAMcamp. Are there any others you can think that are out there? Please help me fill in the gaps.

(And associated links therein) 


I know there are some documentation-loving rock stars out there who'll take this on. Right? : )
