In another room, Sara Thomas from Wikimedia UK will run some introduction to Wikipedia sessions for those who are new to Wiki, or who have specific questions. Sessions will run concurrently (in separate zoom rooms) roughly 3-4pm, and 4-5pm. Sign up on Eventbrite here.

  • Add References section to stubs
  • Add citations to stubs - UKWho'sWho is a good place to start for basic info, as is the Scottish Parliament's website.
  • Check if all current MSPs articles include an image - see wikidata query here - please note also that following communication with the Scottish Government Communications folks, the license on their Flickr account has now been changed to be wiki-compatible. I (user:Sara Thomas (WMUK)) plan to bring over a number of images over the course of the editathon weekend.
