Try prentice hand at “Wiki Marathon”


On January 30 and 31 will be held “Wiki Marathon” in Kharkiv, reported the event organizers.

“The correspondents of Ukrainian Wikipedia from Kharkiv call everyone who wants to learn something new and spend time useful for themselves and for the world, as well as celebrate together the birthday of the biggest encyclopedia in the Ukrainian language! Also the 15th anniversary of the British Wikipedia and the 8th anniversary of the Crimean Tatar Wikipedia fall on January,” noticed the organizers.

During “Wiki Marathon” the participants will write new articles to “Wikipedia“. Experienced editors of Wikipedia will gladly help everyone to write their first articles.

The initiators of the action are asking to take a laptop for convenience, to create a user account in the “Wikipedia” in advance but if you don’t know how to do it, then they will help you. It’s also necessary to think about what you want to write and a future article heading, and to take a few sources of the necessary material on the chosen topic (books, magazines, or even a list of links to Web pages).

On January 30 the marathon will be held in Kharkiv regional universal scientific library (Kooperativna Street 13), and on January 31 – at the Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics (Bakulina Street 12). The timing of events – from 11.00 to 15.00.

According to the organizers, all the participants of the marathon are guaranteed to receive “wiki gifts”.
