Participant feedback:

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.

  • no

  • I learned how to create tables in Wikipedia, and I also learned more about the different features Wikipedia has for editors, like Sandbox.

  • No.

  • 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
