A geonotice is a message that appears at the top of a user's watchlist, using IP data to display messages relevant to the user's location. On the English Wikipedia, it is controlled by MediaWiki:Geonotice.js, which can be edited by any English Wikipedia administrator. This page is intended to serve as a central public venue for uncontroversial requests for new geonotices and to track existing geonotices of interest to WMUK.

Current geonotices[edit | edit source]

Meetups, events, or other items of interest to the chapter currently advertised via the geonotice

Requests for new geonotices[edit | edit source]

Please bear in mind that controversial (or potentially controversial) requests will require discussion at Wikipedia:Geonotice. It is worth considering whether an event or meetup is likely to be quorate without the assistance of a geonotice, as some people find geonotices annoying.
