Local time zones[edit source]

Is it possible to publish the program in a way that makes it easy to see what the times are in your local time zone? E.g. could it be made available as a spreadsheet so we could just put in our UTC offset in a cell at the top and all the dates/times automatically adjust to it? I think more people are likely to turn up if it's easy to know when everything is actually being held. Thanks Kerry Raymond (talk) 05:56, 10 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Kerry Raymond: - ask and you shall receive! Now when you click the link for the time it will convert to the local time set on your computer (or any other timezone you choose). Thanks to @ATDT: who did a lot of this! -- Phoebe (talk) 15:35, 11 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's still a bit clunky, IMO. We could use JavaScript to display each time in both UTC and the user's browser's local timezone. @Krinkle: do you know of an easy way to do this? en:User:Mxn/CommentsInLocalTime is almost what we need. --ATDT (talk) 16:04, 11 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, I made something like this at wikitech:MediaWiki:Gadget-site-deploycal.js for use on wikitech:Deployments. Feel free to leverage some of that! --Krinkle (talk) 17:42, 11 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you, all! Kerry Raymond (talk) 04:55, 12 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Calendar planning support[edit source]

Thanks for the promising program! Is there a chance to get ics-files for the sessions or a calendar-feed to sync with? Lyzzy (talk) 10:14, 12 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi! Great idea but unfortunately the program is all built in MediaWiki so no ics files. Maybe an idea for the hackathon?? -- Phoebe (talk) 20:36, 13 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Download[edit source]

is there any way to download or print the program in a concise manner? The pdf version is complete unmanagable and it would be nice to have it on paper. --Lmalena (talk) 14:02, 13 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi - as above this was all built in MediaWiki so we don't have a separate printed program. You could try printing the days individually to see if that looks better - 2021:Program/Day_2, 2021:Program/Day_3, 2021:Program/Day_4, 2021:Program/Day_5 -- Phoebe (talk) 20:36, 13 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks you but it is exactly the same that doing all together. --Lmalena (talk) 13:46, 14 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How to join to Remo? Please send me necessary invitation. --Infovarius (talk) 14:44, 14 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @Infovarius: if you registered for the conference through eventbrite, you should be registered for Remo. The link is in the program grid. If you did not already register, it's too late, but you can watch sessions on YouTube! Links are also in the program. cheers, -- Phoebe (talk) 17:53, 14 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Program Youtube links are wrong[edit source]


I found that several of the Youtube links are wrong and link to Wikipedia Weekly, not whatever they're supposed to link to.

Default for the day programs should not be collapsed[edit source]

I think it would be better if the default of the program was "not collapsed". That way it would be easier to search for a key word on the page of the program. Otherwise one has to expand the days each time. EMsmile (talk) 01:28, 17 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Support Especially now that the conference is over, this page is a useful historical record and there's no longer a reason to collapse the past days. —Adamw (talk) 10:15, 18 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks, I see it's been done now. EMsmile (talk) 11:21, 20 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please include the "on demand" sessions also in the program page[edit source]

I'd like to suggest that the "on demand" session titles and video links are also included in the "program" page. This would mean that if searching for a keyword in a title, one could search the entire program on one page, not two. I didn't even know there was a sub-page on "on demand" sessions until yesterday, as before then I was just looking at the "program" page for content that was presented at Wikimania. The fact that the "on demand" sessions are currently listed separately from the "program" is confusing. (Sophivorus I had overlooked your presentation about "excerpts" until you pointed it out to me yesterday. EMsmile (talk) 11:25, 20 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

VODs/Recording of all the talks?[edit source]

I couldn't attend a few presentations, is there a link to VODs or recordings? Tetizeraz (talk) 05:59, 23 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Tetizeraz: Hi, the recordings are already available on YouTube, on several channels: "Wikipedia Weekly", "Wikimedia Foundation" and "MediaWiki". They are not easy to find as they don't contain "Wikimania 2021" in their titles... Also, as they were set as "YouTube Kids" videos, they can't be grouped in playlists or played in mini-player for the moment. Some organizers told me that this situation should be temporary. The videos should also be published on Commons at some point. All the best WikiLucas00 (talk) 08:37, 23 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
