Dear WMCEE Spring colleagues,

Hereby I announce that the online meeting for the Wikimedia CEE Spring
organisation team will take place tomorrow (*the 28th of January 2015*).
There will be *2 discussion groups for the meeting*, as to get as much
people involved (some of us have other engagements during the daytime and
others are not available during the evenings).
The first group will start the discussion *12:00 CET *(13:00 EET, 14:00
MSK, 15:00 AMT/AZT, 17:00 ALMT, 3:00 PST).
The second group will start the discussion *18:00 CET *(19:00 EET, 20:00
MSK, 21:00 AMT/AZT, 23:00 ALMT, 9:00 PST).
During the discussion both *Skype call* and *IRC* will be used. *Wikimedia
Eesti will be responsible for moderating* the groups, however all
contributions to the etherpad protocol
<http://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/WMCEE_Spring_2015_Meeting_2> are more than
Thank you for your kind attention!

CEE you soon!

> Dear all,
> I appreciate your input to the discussion and thank you for scouting
> unclear areas of the project! As I have already proposed, it would be good
> to carry out an online discussion. The created doodle poll
> <http://doodle.com/4zaer3xs4wwzvsd9> has not served its purpose and it is
> hard to appoint the most suitable discussion time based on that
> information. Nevertheless, I think that *we should have a live discussion
> before the end of the month* (i.e. this week), especially if we are to
> begin with the competition *on the 1st of March*.
> I have continued with developing the project page on meta
> <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_CEE_Spring_2015> (I also
> invite others to contribute and thank everyone who is developing the
> article list for their country!) and have also added a subsection dedicated
> to meetings
> <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_CEE_Spring_2015/Meetings>.
> I have proposed a possible *agenda* for the online meeting:
> 1. Timeframe
> 2. Activity plan
> 3. Needs assessment
> 4. Risks assessment
> 5. Questions - answers
> 6. Next steps
> Have I overlooked something important that is still missing in the agenda?
> As to the *medium* to be used, have I understood correctly that *Skype*
> is the preferred one? If this is the case I invite everyone interested in
> attending the virtual meeting to add me as a contact. My username is
> *misosoof* and I will try to connect everyone to the call. At the moment
> I have proposed myself as the meeting moderator, but I am open to other and
> especially better suggestions.
> Now the hardest part - finding the best time for discussion. As I believe
> that such meeting should be announced in advance, I do not think that
> Monday will work as a meeting day. Doodle poll ended with Tuesday and at
> the moment the best time for the meeting (according to the poll) seems to
> be 12.00-15.00 EET (11.00-14.00 CET, 13.00-16.00 MSK, 14.00-17.00 AMT/AZT,
> 16.00-19.00 ALMT, 2.00-3.00 PST). What do you think of this? Is Tuesday a
> suitable day for the meeting? Is the time suitable for possible
> participants? Are people from USA also interested in participating in the
> virtual meeting and should we find a more suitable time for them? If doodle
> poll did not work, what are the other possible ways for finding out a
> suitable meeting time for us?
> I thank you once again for your kind attention and look forward to hearing
> from you!
> Best regards,
