What is Wikipedia?
Wikipedia is a multilingual online encyclopedia created and maintained as an open collaboration project by a community of volunteer editors using a wiki-based editing system. It is the largest and most popular general reference work on the World Wide Web, and is one of the 20 most popular websites ranked by Alexa, as of March 2020.
What is a Wikipedia editathon?
An edit-a-thon is an organized event where editors of online communities such as Wikipedia, OpenStreetMap, and LocalWiki edit and improve a specific topic or type of content, typically including basic editing training for new editors. They often involve meetups, but can be distributed as well.
- a scheduled time where people edit Wikipedia together, whether offline, online or a mix of both;
- typically focused on a specific topic, such as various places, famous people, heritage, popular tourist destinations etc. in our case;
- a way to give newcomers an insight into how Wikipedia works.
