You are invited to join the Wikimedia NYC community for our Hacking Sunday at Prime Produce in Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan. It is intended primarily for technical contributors, though newcomers are welcome as well! The event runs for the whole day, though you are welcome to come by for as little or as long as you'd like.

All attendees are subject to Wikimedia NYC's Code of Conduct and Wikimedia's Technical Code of Conduct.

A documentary filmmaker will be in attendance, working on Rabbit Hole, which aims to document Wikipedia's community to showcase how our network tackles important questions about how history is recorded. They will be in attendance to film snippets of this gathering for the documentary. It is completely optional to be a part of the film and there will be protocols in place if you wish to not be filmed. If there are any questions about the filming please reach out to the filmmaker, Meg Vatterott (meg.vatterott@gmail.com).

trans flag at citogenesis

edit

I just saw your additions to both trans flags and WP: citogenesis. I was wondering whether the trans flag (and specifically the helms flag becoming the 'default') would count for terms that become real on the citogenesis page. Just due to the nature of symbols for people and social movements and the helms flag has become a recognisable symbol. LunaHasArrived (talk) 16:20, 30 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@LunaHasArrived: The creator called it the "Transgender Pride Flag"], so Wikipedia is not the origin of the name of the flag. I think the section Wikipedia:List_of_citogenesis_incidents#Terms_that_became_real is only for cases where Wikipedia names something.
My belief as posted at Talk:Transgender_flag#Origin_of_popularity_is_Wikipedia and Wikipedia:List_of_citogenesis_incidents is just that there were numerous trans symbols, but Wikipedia made this one the most popular.
There could be different ways to group or present the info at WP:Citogenesis, and if you have ideas, then I would support and help discuss changes. Bluerasberry (talk) 14:32, 31 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

2023 Wiknic group photo

You are invited to the picnic anyone can edit on Governors Island, at 403 Colonels Row by the ArtCrawl Harlem house.

This is a sequel event to the 2023 Governors Island Wiknic and will feature a workshop led by AfroCrowd at the ArtCrawl Harlem house. We'll also encourage collaboration for wiki-coverage of ArtCrawl Harlem's current exhibition at Governors Island. All are welcome, new and experienced!

Bring a picnic blanket and some potluck, as well as some sunscreen! We'll also provide sandwiches for everyone, and maybe some NYC pizza too, but we encourage you to bring your own favorite dishes to share, especially for those food cultural topics you would like to improve on Wikipedia.

We'll also do a portal thing for a bit with West Coast friends at Wikipedia:Meetup/LA/Wiknic2024.
