Activities to report[edit | edit source]

Wiki reorganisation
  • Have set up the office wiki, and moved glamplan over to a new internal wiki.
  • Have also upgraded all of the wikis so that they use the latest version of MediaWiki (including switching to the Vector skin as default) and have common extensions.
  • Am currently in the process of moving content over from the board wiki onto the office wiki.
Phone calls
  • Responded to an enquiry about using a Wikipedia article in a TV show; redirected to the WMF.
  • Phone gets a lot of 'noise' - random phone calls that are not press related and are not useful to us (e.g. enquiries from people wanting to buy projector bulbs). Any suggestions on how to minimize these?
Partnerships
  • Have been talking by email with Open Plaques about how we could potentially work together. Ideas/suggestions welcome.
GLAM-WIKI
  • Liam has announced this and opened registration; see the blog post.
  • We need to book youth hostel rooms, sign contract with caterers and pay liam for first part of contract. Also need square event logo.
To do
