Hello everyone!


15 January is Wikipedia's 15th birthday. That's right, it's Wikipedia Day! This is the day we celebrate the beginning of the Wikimedia movement and
all of the free knowledge projects we share with the world.

To celebrate, we are asking Wikipedia visitors (both anonymous readers and logged-in users) to tell us what Wikipedia means to them. It's all about
celebrating the impact of our movement.

For the next 6 days, we will use some Central Notice banners to notify
users of our birthday milestone and ask for their thoughts. The banners
will be visible on Meta, Commons, and all language Wikipedias. The messages
have been translated by the community into more than 98 languages (and
counting). The banners will link to the Wikipedia15 microsite [1], where visitors can read the stories of 15 Wikimedians, review milestones from 15
years of Wikipedia, and contribute thoughts on what Wikipedia means to
them.

Per MediaWiki, the timing will follow UTC. And of course, if you dismiss the notice, it will permanently opt you opt of seeing Wikipedia15 banners
for the rest of the week.

Questions? Send them my way.

Want to get involved? Why not go to a Wikimedia party or event[2], edit
something new, share a Wikipedia15 illustration[3], or share a Wikipedia
birthday wish with #Wikipedia15 on your preferred social media!


All the best,

- Zack
