Happy New Year![edit]

We miss our volunteers. We would like to wish our members a corona-free New Year. We would like to be able to organise physical activities again.

21st birthday of Wikipedia[edit]

We celebrate Wikipedia's 21st birthday on Tuesday, 11 January 2022 from 19:00 to 21:00 via, yes, an informal videoconference. There is no special programme, but it will allow participants to connect with each other. A virtual stage is available should anyone wish to present something.

No user account needed. The platform presents itself as a lobby where participants can communicate in small groups. The same platform can be used for presentations and conferences. We want to use this platform on a weekly basis for a Wiki Helpdesk or an informal chat.
