QR code to Android App[edit source]

A QR code linking to the Wikimedia Commons Android App in the Android Market Place

. I can't test whether this works though as I don't have an Android phone. Thryduulf (talk: local | en.wp | en.wikt) 18:08, 19 November 2014 (GMT)

I'm not sure what to do with this, but I'll add the QR code to the briefing page for the image-uploading event. Roberta Wedge (WMUK) (talk) 21:13, 25 November 2014 (GMT)

Your Voice on Wikipedia![edit source]

Possible short articles:

Longer but I really really want

The last is very amusing. (The odds are likely that a Russian-speaker will cross the threshold at some point.) I suspect for the others we'll be concentrating on articles related to London, science, and the information age - particularly those with good ledes. Each recording will last only a minute or two (100-200 words). Roberta Wedge (WMUK) (talk) 21:27, 25 November 2014 (GMT)

Science museum IP[edit source]

I've just been told that the science museum uses the IP We may want to watch that just in case. Thryduulf (talk: local | en.wp | en.wikt) 14:53, 25 November 2014 (GMT)

An excellent point! Can you ask someone who isn't going to be there, and who knows what to do, to watch and monitor? Roberta Wedge (WMUK) (talk) 21:24, 25 November 2014 (GMT)

Briefing pages done and re-done[edit source]

The briefing notes are up now, so if anyone feels like checking them, and tidying up formatting, that would be great. The half-dozen linked pages at the bottom contain the most detailed info. We'll be printing this out for just in case. Roberta Wedge (WMUK) (talk) 21:30, 25 November 2014 (GMT)

Thanks and well done![edit source]

Just wanted to say thank you and well done to everyone involved - all the volunteers and in particular Roberta and Mary for doing such a great job organising. I never thought we'd be over capacity for a session reading out Wikipedia articles!  :) The Land (talk) 22:57, 26 November 2014 (GMT)

Listen to Wikipedia handout[edit source]

A very good evening! One point of feedback from me: once the display was running fullscreen, it wasn't obvious that we were showing a publicly-accessible web page in an ordinary browser window. Several visitors assumed we were running some special app that needed authorisation. I think the handout should include the web address. -- John of Reading (talk) 08:18, 27 November 2014 (GMT)
