I don't know who the guardian angel was who set up the site notice last
time: but my thanks are due. We had much interest from
previously-uninvolved Wikipedians editing the page for version 7.
Unfortunately, in a way, most of those were saying that they weren't
coming. Hence a minor format change this time! But on the other hand we
had a good turnout on the day from newcomers who hadn't edited the page,
also. The site notice is clearly meetup Heineken. So please do it all again.
I'm glad that the geonotice worked so well. :-) I've set it up again for this one
(running from today until the day of the meetup - you may need to hard refresh your
browser to see it though), and also for the next London wikimeet.
Is there anything that Wikimedia UK could do to help with increasing attendance at
Wikimeets - and more generally, increasing the number of wikimeets? Would printed posters
be useful to advertise the event locally? A Wikipedia banner to help people find the
meetup and attract passers-by/people in the location? Assistance with travel costs for
some people every so often?
P.S. any en.wp admin can set a geonotice up via:
