This year, WoALUG’s annual Summer of Wikivoyage Edit-a-thon was organized in Pogradec, Albania. WoALUG organizes this activity to write and update Albania and Kosovo articles on the free travel guide Wikivoyage.
Pogradec is a tourist destination in the south-eastern part of Albania, lying on the shores of Lake Ohrid (Ohër), a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
On May 20, 2022, we traveled to Pogradec. Later that day, our group took a tour of the Park of Drilon and Tushemisht, a small village 5km away from the town.
For the next two days, May 21-22, we updated and created new articles for Kosovo and Albania, uploaded the pictures we took from our expedition to Wikimedia Commons, and used them to illustrate the articles of the area.
To keep our community posted, we were active on social media by inviting the community to participate in the edit-a-thon virtually and sharing our progress on article writing and updates.
Here are some statistics from the Outreach Dashboard:
12 new articles were created
36 existing articles were expanded and improved
14 editors participated
58 multimedia were uploaded to Commons
We would like to thank Wikivoyage administrators for their support during this activity.
Below are some pictures uploaded during the event, with aerial filming to be uploaded soon.
We have a public Telegram channel (language used mostly Albanian) if you want to join and discuss Wikimedia projects. You don't need to be a member to be part of this channel.
