23 people went to three scheduled edit-a-thons: American Chemical Society, UMD, and Laurel Historical Society

  • 7 who created Wikipedia accounts this quarter;
  • 1 who created an account at a past edit-a-thon and has attended at least one additional edit-a-thon; and
  • 11 who have attended at least two edit-a-thons this fiscal year, including 3 who attended two or more edit-a-thons this quarter alone.

In total, as of the end of the quarter, a total of 137 participants have participated in Wikimedia DC edit-a-thons, which is 274% of the goal set for the fiscal year and an increase of 9.5% since the last quarter.

Technology programs

  • Open Government WikiHack at NARA. An outside expert set up new wikidata categories for us, e.g. on Supreme Court justices, and we filled some data in.
  • A member of our chapter wrote CongressEdits and we blogged about that. It is a design that can monitor edits by editors who did not log in to a wikimedia site -- focused just on Congress for now.
  • We installed and experimented with Lua on our own organization's wiki site. This is a relevant language for future wikicode.
