Good evening Wikimaniacs!
We now have a distributed effort by multiple volunteers in Hong Kong to
upload all the video footage from Wikimania 2013 onto YouTube. If you gave
a presentation or workshop at Wikimania (and haven't requested that we
don't video you), keep an eye on WMHK's YouTube channel:
The plan is that all videos will be available by the end of February.
We'd be grateful if you can watch your video and see if there are any
defects, because we can't watch every second of the uploaded videos to
On behalf of the Wikimania Steering Committee, I would like to encourage anyone in our community
who is interested in hosting Wikimania 2015 to consult the revised Timeline and Criteria that
are now posted at:
We have extended the deadline for submitting proposals to March 14, 2014.
Please get in touch with me directly if you have any questions or need help in preparing your bid.

I've contacted the scholarship comitee a couple of days ago but nobody
have sent an answer.
After Wikimania in Hongkong I've booked and payed my flight to London.
So I need only a place to sleep (dorm), because the hotels and B&B's are
to expensive for me as a 100% volunteer.
On the application form (scholarship request of the german language
chapters) there was no space for comments. Last year you could choose
between partial- and full scholarship...

Hi, on wikimedia-gh there was a discussion about money needs in the bank
account of people for getting a visa to attend wikimania. As the interested
persons usually are students this might pose a problem. Do you have any
plans how to deal with it?

Correct, it's an announcement list. I want to avoid people missing
important announcements due to discussion.
