Dear community,

Few days ago a pretty neat idea was proposed, an idea which could
involves all of the community members, all of you: the "Edit Wikipedia
Week". That week will take place from December 3 to 8, 2007 and the
concept is pretty simple: you, as a community member, will have the
chance to spread the word about how to edit Wikipedia or learn how to
work on one of the other sister projects. We want it to be a worldwide
event, and why not, transforming it into an annual event.

Everyone can be involved in helping to stage a bunch of "Edit
Wikipedia Week" events during that week. The idea is to stage outreach
events around the world designed to encourage people to participate in
the projects.

The events can be practically anything – big or small. It doesn't
matter how simple they seem to be, everything counts. You can talk
about the project at a local school; get yourself booked for a
television appearance; have a chat for a local photography club about
the advantages of contributing to Commons; organize a marathon weekend
for translations; discuss the different uses of the WikiPolicies to a
group of regular users you know in your place, recruit new people to
help you launch a WikiProject, or even just teach your mom how to
press a button, edit an article and save. Simple steps that will help
the world to know just what are we doing here, and why are we doing
it. Anything you think will improve the projects is valid: the idea is
to reach out to people who don't edit, or have no idea what Wikipedia
is, and encourage them to contribute on the project.

Edit Wikipedia Week is intended to be an experiment. The premise is
that anyone can organize an event for Edit Wikipedia Week, and it can
take whatever form makes sense to them. You don't need a permission,
it's a community event: feel free to just participate.

There are no fixed rules, except the following:

* Spread the word as you see it fit in your language community,
local chapter, project, family etc.
* Make sure to record the ideas that are developed in your
community, local chapter, project, family etc, in order to share your
experiences with all of us.
* Start your own Edit Wikipedia week metapage in your own
language, if you consider it useful to promote and monitor the ideas.

Spread knowledge. Spread the Wiki love. :)

Please translate this mail as much as you can, and spread it all
around you. Your local mailing lists, your local village pump, your
blog, etc...
