15 January is Wikipedia's 15th birthday. That's right, it's Wikipedia
This is the day we celebrate the beginning of the Wikimedia movement
all of the free knowledge projects we share with the world.
To celebrate, we are asking Wikipedia visitors (both anonymous readers
logged-in users) to tell us what Wikipedia means to them. It's all
celebrating the impact of our movement.
For the next 6 days, we will use some Central Notice banners to notify
users of our birthday milestone and ask for their thoughts. The banners
will be visible on Meta, Commons, and all language Wikipedias. The
have been translated by the community into more than 98 languages (and
counting). The banners will link to the Wikipedia15 microsite ,
visitors can read the stories of 15 Wikimedians, review milestones from
years of Wikipedia, and contribute thoughts on what Wikipedia means to
Per MediaWiki, the timing will follow UTC. And of course, if you
the notice, it will permanently opt you opt of seeing Wikipedia15
for the rest of the week.
Questions? Send them my way.
Want to get involved? Why not go to a Wikimedia party or event, edit
something new, share a Wikipedia15 illustration, or share a
birthday wish with #Wikipedia15 on your preferred social media!
All the best,
