  • I'm flying to the West Coast the next day so it's unlikely...but anything is possible. ;-) Liz Read! Talk! 01:35, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

  • I'm not a member of the Wikimedia NYC community and don't even live on the continent, so I can't really participate in the meeting itself, but since I'm visiting NYC and meeting Wikipedians would be cool, perhaps I could come to say hi during the social hour afterwards if that's ok? --KFP (contact - edits) 01:04, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
    • KFP: Yes, you'd be more than welcome to join for all parts of the meeting. Perhaps you'd even like to share your Wikipedian experiences from Finland as a "lightning talk" :)--Pharos (talk) 14:54, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
        • Thanks for the hospitality! It was nice to meet, and interesting to hear about all the projects and collaboration you guys are doing. Keep up the good work! --KFP (contact - edits) 15:16, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
