Deryck Chan
Dear Wikimaniacs,

We would like to announce that the official wiki of Wikimania 2013, http://wikimania2013.wikimedia.org , is scheduled to be closed on 4 June 2014. After this date, the contents of the wiki will locked from editing and preserved as a time capsule.

Please feel free to make any final edits to the wiki. In particular, for those who made presentations in Wikimania 2013, please check the video links on your submission pages and add links to presentation slides. If you're making a follow-up submission to Wikimania 2014, feel free to link to that too.

The date of the wiki's closure is chosen to commemorate the souls that perished on that day 25 years ago in their quest for freedom.

On behalf of the local team, we thank you for a great Wikimania in Hong Kong, and we hope to see many of you in London!

With wiki-love,
Deryck
Global engagement coordinator, Wikimania 2013

Is it necessary to lock? Is that an anti-spam measure, or just because you want to preserve it as it is?

2011 and 2012 are locked. The alternative is to merge the wiki into Meta, which has been done to projects before, and is rather messy.

Please do not tie Wikimedia things to some memorial events outside the scope of Wikimedia's mission again, like sep11wiki, which has already been considered a mistake.

Agree with Liangent. if that is why you chose that date, fine. I am sure that some people would have gotten the reference. Using the mailing list to spread a political message, however, is not appropriate.

I don't think that the fact that 11's and 12's years' wiki are locked explains why we need to lock the 13's one. About the merging - I'd rather consider creating general Wikimania Wiki ( something like wikimania.wikimedia.org ) for all years. --Base
