Wikimedia UK Annual Conference 2012

I'm writing to let you know that WikiConference UK 2012 is coming up, on Saturday 12 May 2012, in London. Some time ago you indicated that you are interested in attending the event. If this is still the case please help us in planning for the event by registering at The conference will incorporate both presentations and talks about Wikipedia/Wikimedia, as well as Wikimedia UK's Annual General Meeting. It is free to attend. If you have any questions please contact Daria Cybulska on or 0207 065 0994. Hope to see you there! Richard Symonds (talk) 15:08, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

WWI topics

Hi Andy - thanks for the suggestions! The idea of that section is to focus on articles which not only need attention, but where the academics attending definitely know a lot about them. I've taken out two that don't really match any academic's expertise (I am pretty sure none of them know much about mining, sadly). However, that leaves 2 that do. It would be great if you could suggest a particular article on the Home Front that's in dire need of attention! Hope this makes sense. Regards, The Land (talk) 20:47, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Up to you, but you've taken out "Memorials and war-graves", even though one of the experts is the historian for the War-Graves Commission. And didn't "British strategy and operations on the Western Front" include tunnelling? Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing); Andy's talk; Andy's edits 21:17, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi Andy,

I've confirmed the times for the World War I/World War I Editathon event, and updated the hCalendar data on the page - I've not dealt with these much before, so could you check I haven't messed it up?

Thanks, Andrew Gray (talk) 11:32, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks - I was a little confused by whether the times were to be given with or without the UTC offset! Andrew Gray (talk) 12:57, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Looking at the next five years – a day workshop on the future of Wikimedia UK

There's a sign up section on the event talk page. If you have a particular preference about work shops you want to attend, you might want to add you name to the relevant lists. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 16:05, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Nice to meet you at the AGM!

Always good to put a name to a face :) Really interested in the proposed development of software to support your audio work and I'm sure you'll be in touch with Tom around that. I'm scheduling a Tech Comm next week - if you fancy coming just pop you're availability on this doodle before Friday! :) Katherine Bavage (WMUK) (talk) 09:45, 10 June 2013 (UTC)


Since the "Thanks" system isn't working, just a note of appreciation for your formatting and accessibility fixes on the conference page. Cheers, MartinPoulter (talk) 11:53, 14 September 2015 (BST)
