Welcome to Wikimedia New York City!

This month's facilitator is Pharos.

  • Zoom etiquette
  • Welcome + Introductions
  • Did you know that when you create a new article you can get it featured on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did You Know section? Did you know that we'll have a demo to show how to do this?
  • Share + Discuss (please add any recent Wikimedia projects/events/activities you'd like to share with the group or open for discussion):
  • Are there any questions about Wikimedia projects you'd like to ask?
    • How do Wikipedia's pictures wind up everywhere? Why are they all from a certain perspective? (please edit this question as needed)
    • What is a good beginner's resource?
  • Vote in Wikimedia Steward elections till 26 February
    • meta:Stewards/Elections 2021
    • Stewards are trusted, multilingual Wikimedia volunteer administrators
    • They handle big problems as a last resort, particularly for wiki language versions with no administrators
    • Voting is good wiki citizenship. Also, Wikimedia NYC encourages development of multilingual social support.
