Subject: Re: [Wikimedia-in-blr] Bangalore Monthly wikipedia meetup - Announcing special talk
To: "Mailing list for Wikimedians / Wikipedians in Bangalore, India" <>

I have uploaded the photos of Bangalore Wikimeetup 18 to commons

Possibly due to long weekend and 2 major festivals , the attendence of this meetup was relatively low. But the best part was that there were three first-timers , of the 7 people who attended.. I have decided to follow up and engage with new people who are coming to the meetup, from now on. I have asked them to also subscribe to our aliases.

There were 3 presentations
1) "Wikimedia Israel / Hebrew Wikipedia and its activities " - Asaf Bartov (User:Ijon)
    The presentation was done remotely over skype video. Hebrew Wikipedia crossing 1 lakh articles with just 150-200 active contributors ( with still maintaining article quality & no blind bot created articles) is a good case study for the Indian languages to follow.  Asaf shared their experiences with the various outreach activities undertaken by Wikimedia Israel.
2) "Project Management best practices for WikiProjects". - Arjunarao
3) "Wikimedia Chapters and other forms of affiliation" - Achal Prabhala

Dear Wikipedians,

This is to remind all about the next Bangalore Wikipedian meetup (Meetup # 18) on Sunday 12th September. 

We have some interesting content for this meetup. We have been experimenting with various forms of participation in the meetups including remote presentations at Bangalore meetups. 
We had Liam Wyatt speak earlier from Sydney regarding the GLAM project.

Happy to announce another speaker, this time from Israel - Wikimedian Asaf Bartov. He will be speaking on Wikimedia in Israel, Projects, growth, challenges and best practices.

We have a few other interesting sessions lined up:

  • A discussion on Wikimedia Chapters and other forms of affiliation (Achal Prabhala)
  • India newsletter
And many more.
Please do mark your calendars and make it to the monthly meetup. 

This meeting is open to all interested in Wikimedia (all projects and languages) , please do make it if you are thereabouts in Bangalore.  

If are considering attending the meeting, please sign up here -
