- What would you have liked more of?
- A little more guidance at times on each step of the editing process. It would also have been useful to have a list of relevant pages that needed editing so that more could have been achieved during the day.
- What would you have liked less of?
- Please give any other comments you have here .....
- I found the course very interesting and am now planning to do more wikipedia editing. I particularly enjoyed Stephen Barker's intro talk. It was a bit of a shame there weren't more attendees but at the same time this allowed for more face-to-face discussion.
- I think it would have helped me if I had prepared some content to add to Wikipedia, or selected something to edit, in advance.
