Wikimania has a number of needs for volunteers in helping with the Unconference organization and the Community Village. Please sign up here if you are able to help, with anything specific you might be able to provide. Thanks so much for your generous time. The organizing team will confirm as well.
Unconference Hosts[edit | edit source]
Assist in helping users understand how to schedule sessions, find the right virtual rooms and craft effective Unconference sessions.
Community Village Support[edit | edit source]
Assist in helping affiliates and user groups set up their virtual tables in the conference space. Ideal for someone who is already planning to host a table at the Village!

Post Production[edit | edit source]
We want to make sure all recordings make it to Commons. For this, we have two roles where we definitely need some volunteer support.
Closed Captioning[edit | edit source]
While You Tube will produce automated captions, someone needs to export them, make sure they align with the (possibly edited) video file and do a brief quality check. Especially support needed from some people who speak Arabic, German, Spanish, French, Russian or Chinese.

Copyright Filtering for videos[edit | edit source]
We want to make sure that we flag as many problems with the video before uploading them to Wikimedia Commons. We will need some support from volunteers who know Commons policies well, and are willing to review the videos, and flag any significant issues.
