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?
  • Have been talking by email with Open Plaques about how we could potentially work together. Ideas/suggestions welcome.
  • 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.
