I hope to see some of the great bids that were placed for 2011 again running for 2012; you
have the edge of knowing your highs and lows.

Ah, August, when people's thoughts turn towards <s>the beach</s>
<s>school</s> Wikimania bidding!
This is an informal reminder to those interested in bidding for 2012 to start thinking
about putting up your public pages:
There isn't a timeline yet but last year's makes a pretty good guide. There's
plenty of time, but the sooner you put up your ideas the sooner other people can offer to
Also, please remember that everyone is welcome *and encouraged* to comment on the bids,
even tentative bids, with your concerns and ideas; your constructive support will help the
bidders come up with the best possible proposal and will ultimately help the bid jury
select the best bid. I would love to see more feedback on the bids ahead of time. The bid
talk pages are the best place for this.
Especially since there is a lively discussion about Wikimania locations and requirements
going on now anyway, this is probably a good time to review the existing bid criteria and
propose any changes.
A list of past criteria and official requirements (largely the same from year to year,
with some minor revision) can be found here:
please discuss and propose changes on the talk page. There are also general comments on
many of the individual year pages that it might be helpful to aggregate, if someone has
some free time :)
This might also be a good time to consider possible improvements to the process for
choosing a bid and running Wikimania, as well as how to move forward with the process for
this year (including determining a timeline, bid jury, etc). There was lots of discussion
on the lists earlier this summer about a Wikimania committee, but these ideas aren't
reflected on the wiki yet; probably the best place for this discussion is:
