Media looking for Wikipedians

Several media organisations have approached us with questions about the 15th birthday of Wikipedia.
They look for volunteers to share their experiences with them.

Visit of a colleague to Wikimania

Wikipedia user and colleague board member Romaine send us a report of this visit of Wikimania in Mexico last July. You can find the report (in Dutch) on his userpage. You can also browse through the pictures taken during the conference, or even watch some of the presentations of the conference again.


Welcome on our new website

Voila. Welcome to our new website.

This website is tailored to the general public interested in our organisation, Wikipedia Belgium. We will put official announcements, events, meeting reports, general assembly). It will also be used as membership website where people can join up the organisation.

Our existing Mediawiki website will be used as collaboration tool with public access. It will allow all members and interested people to join our discussions. As a rule of thumb, only "work on progress" should be kept on this Wiki. Static content should be transferred to this new website.
