Jump to: navigation, search

This page serves to collect suggestions for Wikimania 2016 (or possibly later) — either to improve or otherwise build on previous Wikimanias or to try something new. The sections are ordered alphabetically. Feel free to add new ones as appropriate. There is also wm2015:Feedback, with a similar scope.

Accommodation

  • Special award goes to B&B Castagneto for providing homemade jam and cake at breakfast. Deryck Chan (talk) 14:25, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Budget

  • €350 / €450 package deal for Wikimania including accommodation and all meals was really great for attendees to budget their trips. Deryck Chan (talk) 14:25, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Closing ceremony

  • Use openly licensed music, so that video and audio recordings of the session can be uploaded to Commons. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 12:58, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
    • +1 YES! Major pain to have the FUD hanging over all video recordings at Wikimania. -- Fuzheado (talk) 21:55, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I agree. Rubbish computer (talk) 18:43, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Communication

Diversity

Environmental footprint

Food

  • Have paper signs and pens at each lunch/ dinner table to allow people to give their table a theme, as is already done for the hackathon. (via Ftrotter) --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 21:02, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
  • I'd suggest making options available for people who observe halal or kosher diets, vegetarians and vegans and those with food intolerances. Rubbish computer (talk) 18:42, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
  • It was a nice idea to mix people up by randomising meal tickets and getting people to make new friends at mealtimes. Deryck Chan (talk) 14:22, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Hackathon

  • Tables should be an appropriate height for laptops (about 750 mm is somewhat standard I think?). Sam Wilson 03:34, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Opening ceremony

  • Use openly licensed music, so that video and audio recordings of the session can be uploaded to Commons. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 12:58, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Parties

  • Strongly favour openly licensed music, so that video and audio recordings can be uploaded to Commons. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 12:58, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

WiFi

  • WiFi at venues were good, but there should be more provision of power supplies. Deryck Chan (talk) 14:22, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Wikimania organization

  • document the planning process in a way that improves with each Wikimania, while still allowing for experiments --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 18:50, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
  • try to find a way to link the current Wikimania to the previous and following ones beyond the obligatory closing ceremony presentation --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 18:50, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Wikimania 2016 wiki

  • perhaps use Semantic MediaWiki for info on program, sessions, locations, participants etc. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 18:50, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
