PortlandWiki has weekly "edit party" meetups, sometimes known as "Weekly Wiki Workouts" (see picture). The idea is to give PortlandWiki's contributors a chance to get together in a physical location to discuss new or ongoing projects, contribute content to PortlandWiki, and have fun.

PortlandWiki's weekly "edit parties" are free, open to everyone, and casual.

* Our [[PortlandWiki:Monday Meets|Monday Meetups]] happen at [[Powell's Technical Books]], 40 [[NW 10th Avenue]], on the corner of [[NW 10th Avenue]] & [[NW Couch Street]]. (This is [[Powell's Technical Books|Powell's Tech's]] new location.)
+
* Our [[WikiWednesday|Wednesday Meetups]] happen at [[Backspace]], 115 [[NW 5th Avenue]], between [[NW Davis Street]] & [[NW Couch Street]]. (Look for us in the main room.) '''Except some days''' like the second Wednesday of the month, when we are booted 5 blocks away to the [[Blitz Pearl]]. Check out the [[WikiWednesday]] page for details.

== How? ==
+
== Can't Make the Meetings? ==
At Powell's Technical Bookstore just look for us at one of the little tables near the store's entrance.
+
If the days or times don't work out for you but you're curious about meeting work and discussions, check out '''[[Meetup Notes]]'''.
  
At Backspace there are usually a heck of a lot of geeky-looking folks with laptops. For folks that don't recognize the "regulars," we don't yet have a great way for you to find us. For now, we usually are at the first table you get to when entering, or nearby. Just ask if we're here for PortlandWiki!

Since PortlandWiki's inception a small group of PortlandWiki [[Special:ListUsers/sysop|administrators]] and other interested people have gathered each Monday in a meetup we've called our "[[PortlandWiki:Monday_Meets|Monday Meets]]." As PortlandWiki continues to expand and bring in new contributors, it's become apparent that also expanding meetup options is an increasingly good idea.

OMG!! PortlandWiki's "Weekly Wiki Workouts" are always lotsa fun!!!

PortlandWiki's weekly "edit parties" are free, open to everyone, and casual. They're a great chance to meet the diverse group of people who edit PortlandWiki and experience the fun of collaborating in person on a wiki. There are always friendly wiki experts willing to lend a hand and answer questions. Participation is casual, you can pick a topic to write about if you want, or you can just chat with some wiki geeks over some food and drinks.

Monday Meets

WikiWednesdays

See the WikiWednesday page for details.

Can't find the right tent?

Ask the folks in the camp Library. The Occupy Portland Library is located in the Lownsdale Square encampment.

Can't Make the Meetings?

If the days or times don't work out for you but you're curious about meeting work and discussions, check out Meetup Notes.

Expanding Meetup Options

If PortlandWiki's current meetup days don't work for your schedule, consider starting your own PortlandWiki meetup on a different day or time. Feel free to post your PortlandWiki meetup schedule here or start a new page!

Since PortlandWiki's inception a small group of PortlandWiki administrators and other interested people have gathered each Monday in a meetup we've called our "Monday Meets." As PortlandWiki continues to expand and bring in new contributors, it's become apparent that also expanding meetup options is an increasingly good idea. We've also recognized that adding additional venues is also necessary.
