Did you learn anything new about editing wiki articles? If so, what specifically?
Lack of info on a huge number of languages
Moving pages, citing sources
Using the cite feature instead of hard-coding my reference
Yes, how to add 2 authors, add a map, and look for requested pages to translate.
I learned how to create tables in Wikipedia, and I also learned more about the different features Wikipedia has for editors, like Sandbox.
Hadn't seriously edited in a while, and relearned the referencing system, as well as learned how to use the interlinear template.
How to do it
i just followed the instructions on the site, it was pretty intuitive
visual editor automatic citation is pretty useful when it detects correctly
I learned the formatting for tables is not user friendly.
This was my first editathon so I got the chance to learn how to edit and site sources on pages
