The Open Scholarship Hack is definitely on the weekend of 19-20 July, right? - Lawsonstu (talk) 17:17, 15 May 2014 (UTC)Reply

Yes, thanks for correcting it. John and I were smartening the pages up using cut and paste.Fabian Tompsett (WMUK) (talk) 07:48, 16 May 2014 (UTC)Reply

Removal of translation tags

Hello Fabian,

While I appreciate your efforts to expand the Travel page, please try and avoid removing existing translation tags when adding content. Removing existing tags for no apparent reason as you did here creates more work for myself and others. I'm happy to add new tags as required when I mark new page revisions for translations, but having existing ones to work with makes my work easier. Thanks.

Hey, I am sorry for that, but I found it impossible to save the page until I took the tags off! (A bit of text appeared above the edit box with the translation tags. Is this a bug?Fabian Tompsett (WMUK) (talk) 16:46, 10 July 2014 (UTC)Reply
It could be. Did it give you a reason for why you couldn't save the page? The three I've got have been, i) having multiple translation tags for one translation unit, ii) having multiple translation tags with the same number, and iii) having a <translate> marker without the same number of </translate> markers.

Hi again Fabian,

Just so I'm on the same page, what are we intending to use Category:Location for? We already have Category:Venue and I've already noticed one editor replacing this new category with the older one. CT Cooper · talk 18:59, 16 July 2014 (UTC)Reply

Hi Chris,
There will be some locations outside the venue for meet ups etc., and some of the places in the venue category aren't locations. Does that make sense? Fabian Tompsett (WMUK) (talk) 09:01, 17 July 2014 (UTC)Reply
Thanks Fabian for your quick response. CT Cooper · talk 18:04, 17 July 2014 (UTC)Reply

Freaking out and schedule

Hi! just wanted to say 2 things:

  1. I'm freaking out a bit for this (my first Wikimania!)
  2. Do you have a set time for the '14 and '15 organizing teams to meet? Are you in charge of that meeting? I recall exchanging mails with Edward and Hera last week, but they didn't tell me any specific date

Looking forward to meeting --Andycyca (talk) 05:26, 25 July 2014 (UTC)Reply
