Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] Should we organise Wikimania 2018/2019 in
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"


Since last 6 years we were planning to organise Wikimania in India. But we
dropped it because of raw experience to organise such a big conference.

But in the last 6 years, we have organised 3 conferences i.e.  in 2011 at
Mumbai,  2015 at Kolkata &  2016 at Mohali. If we all communities and
chapters collaborate then we can plan to organise an International
conference at India in 2018/2019.

Waiting for your opinion and suggestions.

We organized the 2015 BN10 Conference in Kolkata and as far as I know, Bengali community, including myself, is not at all interested in organizing another conference, although I dont speak on behalf of all. Personally speaking, to remain active online is more fruitful than organizing a Wikimania.
