The feedback from our inaugural Wikipedia-a-thon was refreshing, knowing that the effort from our team was well worth the effort. Here are a few comments we have received from those that participated on the day.
“I didn’t expect to find it as fun as I did – it’s strangely addictive to comb through what’s there and figure out where additions can be made. I feel like I might start editing Wikipedia pages for fun now! ”Kieran
” Many times I’ve noticed things on Wikipedia in need of change or expansion but haven’t wanted to go through the bother of setting up an account and learning to edit.
