The Imperial College Wikipedians are a student social society of Imperial College Union. We aim to provide a social space for like minded wiki-enthusiasts to get together to edit, update and enjoy the many facets of Wikipedia. We hold regular edit sessions and attempt to promote greater involvement from the student community in contributing to Wikipedia content.

Wikisocial - 16th October 2012[edit | edit source]

1830 - Union Bar, Beit Quad

Having done well at the 2012 Freshers’ fair by email sign-ups, we planned to hold our first event of the year as a relaxed Wikisocial to encourage new members to meet each other and discuss the coming year.

Report[edit | edit source]

By the 16th October we had achieved a fantastic 39 members, beating both the Student Union minimum of 20 and our old record of 25 for 2010/11.

The Wikisocial itself was a very successful first event for the term with 17 of our members joining us at the Union bar to meet new people and find out more about the coming year. A great mix of people, from 1st year undergraduates to postgraduates, have recently joined the Society and from quite a variety of subjects. Two of our newest members also expressed a strong interest in the upcoming “Training the Trainers” event. Our first Wikilounge is now fast approaching (Tue 23rd Oct) and the venue has been confirmed as the 3rd Floor Breakout Area (Sofas opposite the lifts) of the Biochemistry Building (also called Sir Ernst Chain Bld), South Kensington Campus, Imperial College. We are hoping to see our old timers help our newest editors to get set up on Wikipedia and ultimately get as addicted as we are.
