New Zealand stuff

  • How does Wikipedia cover New Zealand
  • Are there ample Kiwi articles?
  • If not, what can we do to improve that?
  • Possible areas to work on:
  • Are all towns/cities covered, should we look at a project to get images from all theses towns?
  • Schools, What New Zealand schools should Wikipedia cover, what should be the base criteria for a School to have its own article?
  • Should we have a list of all NZ schools, in a [List of New Zealand Schools]?
  • Dictionary of New Zealand Biography
  • Years in New Zealand
  • Date, location and score of every All Blacks game.
  • Biography of every All Black, Black Cap, etc
  • Māori wikipedia.


  • How about a CD/DVD with all NZ articles and distributable images?
  • Should we provide a guide for schools on updating articles (perhaps asking them to avoid do an article about the school) for class projects.
  • Does Wikimedia New Zealand plan to install servers in New Zealand?

Chapter Questions.

  • Why might we want to setup a local chapter?
  • If we setup a local chapter, what implication are there?
  • How does the chapter serve its members? They are paying for membership after all.
  • Is it actually possible for a Incorporated Society in New Zealand to transfer proceeds of donations to a US based organisation?
  • Should we have online AGM’s, Are online AGMs legal?
  • Where should we base Wikimedia New Zealand
  • Do we need office space? It seems unnecessary and expensive.
  • Should professional advice should be sought on issues such as public liability and defamation before we go ahead with any chapter proposal.

Misc stuff

  • Do we enjoy editing wikipedia?
  • Any complaints?
