A few basic questions

Leigh, thanks for putting this idea forward. A couple of quick questions that come to mind:

  1. I assume that you would be the "trainer" mentioned?
  2. Can you summarise any relationship you might have with La Trobe University's Faculty of Health Sciences, to make sure there's no improper COI here?

I must confess that $1100 seems a bit steep for a "small Wikipedia editing workshop", but I'm open to being convinced otherwise! Lankiveil 21:19, 6 December 2012 (EST).

A couple of comments

  • Overnight in Bendigo is it necessary and the course times 0900 - 16:00 its only 160-170km between campasses Melb-Bendigo, which is less than two hours on the Calder Highway
  • IMHO I think including a commons uploading session is too much information in one day especially as the works to be uploaded are more likely made by third parties which can get into some complex licensing, permission issues and if they include people with medical issues personality rights and privacy permissions. I think you be better served focusing solely on editing, sourcing formatting WP articles etc. Gnangarra 17:59, 7 December 2012 (EST)

Are you going to be there anyway?

If the optional extra is a week later, does that imply you are going to be in Bendigo for the whole week? Does that mean you are there on other business anyway? If so, I'd prefer that WMAU not fund travel. PS I'd rather not make you answer such questions in public, this is the kind of thing that could go to a private mailing list. --99of9 14:25, 9 December 2012 (EST)
