Is tipping customary?
Tipping is customary only in restaurants and hotels. Restaurant bills usually do not include payment for service, hence a 15% addition is expected for the waiter. Anything beyond that is considered a gratitude for good service. Tips are usually not expected in self-service restaurants or food stands. Tip the bellhop in the hotel (or carry it yourself − which is also customary).

Wi-Fi will be provided at the venue, and at the lobby of the hotels. Some, but not all hotel rooms will have Wi-Fi at no additional charge.
I'm a presenter; how should I bring my presentation?

Bring it on a flash drive, a CD or just on your computer: make sure it reaches the organizers a day in advance to ensure it works. Or email it to the organizers. Also, whichever option you use, upload it to Commons with a free license (or on this wiki if you don't own copyright of it) and in Wikimania 2012 presentation slides‎; otherwise, we'll do it for you after the conference unless you asked us not to.

How do I get announcements about Wikimania?
  • Before the conference – Watch this site or sign up for wikimania-l, a mailing list for most Wikimania related issues or announcements.
  • During the conference – posted notices at the registration area will advise the attendees of any changes and notices.
What hashtag should I use for tweets and photos?
