I hear… had to do the same for other session I organize :-/ 

Somehow MediaWiki vs. external apps that connect to it (same with grants) tend to be overriding flexibility we are used to :-(

Ok, I got an important clarification from Butch today.

All modifications MUST be done on pretalx, because they will "run again" the import bot and all the content on the wiki will be replaced by the pretalx one.

So... I copied everything that is CURRENTLY on the wiki page on pretalx (except for the links provided in the profiles by James, Mike and myself).

HOWEVER, importantly... all of the invited speakers need to fill up their profile on pretalx, because this will be imported on the wiki page automatically.
In short... contrariwise to what I said earlier... your profile data ----> on pretalx.

A little annoyement with that is... that if you have several contributions... then you will have the same profile for all of them.

Hello everyone

So the Wikimania programme has now been published.

I summarized the key information about it on the submission page.

* https://wikimania.wikimedia.org/wiki/2023:Program/Submissions/Learn_and_discuss_with_member_of_the_Wikimedians_in_Residence_Exchange_Network_-_WDZBPN

So we do have 30 mn.

Here is my suggestion. Given the time ---> no presentation... only discussion open with the audience.

We open the session with a 2 mn intro. We can present one another in one minute (local and distance if they are - Z or John or others. But keep in mind the timezone is favorable to early wakers Europeans and late sleepers North Americans)

Then open questions from the room and answers.

We will close with suggestions to connect (mailing list, meta page, other relevant sessions such as the UN one which comes after). You guys make sure to have your contacts ready.

Let's prepare a bunch of questions in advance. If the room is hot, we can rely on their questions. If the room is cold... then I'll make sure some of the best questions are asked :)

TODO (anyone, please feel free to help)

1.  Add a collection of interesting links to the proposition (if you have ideas, please do complete the section about Links... ongoing current project, a diff article, a newsletter link, last year video about WREN etc.)

2. Review and complete your small profile description (make sure people do connect you to your institution and find out how to contact you. Also if you give another related presentation, please do mention it)
I'll do mine later today as an example if you hate white pages.

3. On the etherpad, please do suggest questions to ask the panel : https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/WiRs2023-2030

PS : James, I answer you separately
