Wikipedia/Vicipéid birthdays!

As part of our monthly Wikipedia editing event on 30 January 2019, we will be celebrating not one, but two birthdays! January sees Wikipedia’s 18th birthday, as well as the 15th birthday of the Irish language version – Vicipéid!

Join us from 7-9pm in TOG for cake as we mark these great milestones. Like our usual events, if you have ever wondered how to get started editing Wikipedia, no editing experience is necessary, just bring along a laptop and we can show you how to make your first edits to the world’s largest encyclopedia in what ever language you like!

Any level of Wikimedia/Wikipedia editing experience is welcome. This is not a formal workshop, but an informal evening with an experienced Wikimedia editor on hand to help!

If Wikipedia isn’t to your taste, you can learn how to edit the huge linked database Wikidata, or add images to Wikimedia Commons.
