Structure[edit source]

This page has a strange structure. There are no hard technical requirements. It's all a grayscale. I am also a bit confused what the purpose is of this page. Is it a learning pattern? Or is it a guide for something really specific? Please give some further instructions to able us to help. Ainali (talk) 17:17, 14 January 2020 (UTC)Reply

Feel free to change or delete the structure if it inhibits, my aim was to lay a foundation that would help. No prestige in that.
The purpose: to provide future Wikimania organizers with knowledge and experience on how to enable as much remote participation and documentation as possible. Each Wikimania has its own particular setting which makes it hard to make a step-by-step guide only, but I assume that there is knowledge and experience that can be reused.
As when it comes to technical requirements, we were lucky enough to have volunteers (you not the least) that had experience and knowledge of the technology. It is not guaranteed that that will always be the case, so anything that helps volunteer-led documentation practices is good, even if it just means mentioning the different nuances.
I'd be happy to answer more questions, here or over video link. Eric Luth (WMSE) (talk) 12:44, 15 January 2020 (UTC)Reply
I changed the structure, keeping the information that was already there and including some of the missing topics I brought up in the section below. I like the idea of turning this into a Learning pattern. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 22:27, 28 February 2020 (UTC)Reply

Missing topics[edit source]

The sections on video streaming, on the recording of on-site presentations and on etherpads are already useful, though more could be said, for instance, on how to document slides and other things used during a presentation. What I am missing more generally, though, are options to participate more actively or asynchronously, e.g. as a remote presenter or as someone who views past presentations or browses their documentation. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 23:35, 24 February 2020 (UTC)Reply
