This is just a quick reminder about the Wiki Loves Monuments Wikipedia
edit-a-thon Wikimedia ZA will be hosting this Saturday in Cape Town. Join
us if you want to meet like minded people to do some Wikipedia or show
others who are new to editing how it is done. The purpose is to use some
of the photographs submitted to Wiki Loves Monuments over the years on
Wikipedia article pages.
There is a special prize for "best use on Wikipedia" for a site anywhere in
South Africa this year totalling R3,000 and the same prize category for a
site in the Western Cape totalling R4,000. The cut off deadline to apply
this this prize category is the 7th November 2015. The edit-a-thon is a
great opportunity to enter this event and learn more about how to maximise
your contributions to Wikipedia using Wiki Loves Monuments photographs.
Date: *Saturday, 24th October 2015*
Time: *10:00 - 15:00* (people are free to come and go at any time
between 10am and 3pm)
Location: *TwentyFifty, 2nd Floor, 8 Spin Street, Cape Town.*
You will need to bring your own computer/notebook/device to edit Wikipedia
on. Unfortunately the host site does not offer free standing computers.
We will be serving food and refreshments on the day. It important to keep
Wikipedia editors well fed.
P.S. I am going to
