Mbabel - One Click Article Creation for Events


Inclusion and Diversity
+ Editor Recruitment & Retention
+ Tech & Tools

Type of session:



The Mbabel template was created by the Wikipedian in Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It allows new editors to create a new article draft that is preformatted and includes metadata and images from Wikidata. It has potential to revolutionalize how we engage with new editors at Wiki events, but the template is little known and requires much advance preparation. This panel will discuss how the template has been used in events in North and South America and the ways that attendees can use it at their own events.
