Subject: [WikiX-l] Take pictures and record WP10 history!
To: Planning for WP 10th anniversary <wiki...@lists.wikimedia.org>

Hi folks,

Earlier today I created a page on ten.wikipedia.org to encourage everyone
participating in Wikipedia 10 events to take great pictures and video.


I can't over-emphasize how important it is for everyone hosting an event
-any event- to make sure you collect great images and video, and of course
share those images. Wikipedia 10 is a particularly good time to hone your
skills and get in the habit of documenting every single meeting and occasion
- and documenting them very well.

It's easy to overlook this step with all other planning, but please, please
don't.  If you're part of a new or established Wikimedia chapter or
organization, I absolutely promise you that having very good images on hand
will be critical at some point in the future.  Whether it's for
presentations, media, reports or other documents, or just to archive and
document your roots: take pictures!

Remember that we're documenting images for future generations, and creating
a lasting historical record of the people behind this movement.  You are all
pioneers!  And these images will shape the historic record for future

It's also something that we at the Foundation very much benefit from.
 Whether it's putting your pictures up on the walls, showing them to donors
or stakeholders, or just putting a name to a face: these images have
incredible value for us.  I also know that the chapters and other global
pieces of our movement rely on these images to build their own global
understanding of our collective work.

No event is too small!
No event is too big!

Ensure someone at your event will focus their efforts on taking the best
possible efforts.  Please make sure you don't forget to take, post, share,
and detail your images. Plan ahead!

Thank you!
