Sorry for the late notice, but there is a Toledo Wiki Edit Party this Saturday, the 12th from 4-6 pm at Seed Coworking on St. Clair Street. I posted more information about the Edit Party from the website below.
I've been a fan of Toledo Talk for a number of years, and it's the first place I go to find good local knowledge - a recommendation for a certain type of contractor, a restaurant that serves a hard-to-find dish... ToledoWiki.net is a way to share and organize this type of local knowledge in a Wikipedia-style format.
I hope some Toledo Talk posters check ToledoWiki.net out and share some of their knowledge over there. The site just launched a few months ago and is still growing, and it could really use your valuable contributions of local knowledge. I think one Toledo Wiki page may be especially interesting to Toledo Talk posters - a page for Food Questions that easily creates maps for the answers to particular Food Questions. For example, the page uses some of your answers to upso's question about where to find smelt in a restaurant.
You can look around the whole site. Maybe find something interesting, maybe add something interesting. Hope you can make it to the Edit Party and make some edits!
According to the localWiki Guide, an edit party is simple: "get some people together to work on the wiki together." An edit party is also useful for recruiting/introducing new people to wiki concepts and procedures and to meet other editors in person.
The November 24, 2012 Learn & Launch probably qualifies as the first ToledoWiki Edit Party.
The 2nd Edit Party was held on December 8th at Black Kite.
Next Edit Party: January 12, 4-6pm, Seed Coworking
The 3rd Edit Party will be Saturday, January 12th from 4-6pm at Seed Coworking.
Where: Seed Coworking is located at 25 South Saint Clair Street in downtown Toledo. There should be plenty of free street parking on S. St. Clair.
A representative from Seed will be on hand to give you a tour, tell you how coworking works, membership benefits, etc. Of course, you do not have to be a Seed member to attend the Edit Party. But you may like it there and want to join!
What to bring: A laptop, power supply (free, high-quality WiFi will be available). A list of questions about ToledoWiki. A list of pages you plan to work on.
What will we do: Depends on what people are interested in. We can all work independently, but there is a projector, so someone can do a demo to the whole group if needed.
Food & drink: Downtown Latte closes at 3pm, but we can order Home Slice Pizza. You can bring your own drinks and food. Seed will provide coffee and there is some community soda (Pepsi, Dew) in the fridge.
What else you can do before the Edit Party: 20 North Gallery is just down the street. Its "Art for All Souls Exhibit" ends on January 12th. The gallery closes at 4pm on Saturdays.
Please RSVP at the Facebook event. Invite others to the Facebook event.
