Hey Pharos, thanks for your response regarding accommodation for WTM, well noted your suggestion regarding HI NYC, but I fear there are very few beds remaining, am scheduled for US visa interview on Tuesday, if everything goes well I ll definitely book at least my bed on Tuesday itself or Wednesday, just hoping that until Tuesday, 6-9 July does not get reserved. Thanks. --Rangilo Gujarati (talk) 18:15, 4 May 2012 (UTC)Reply

Reserved one bed in HI NYC from 4th-9th July 2012, now waiting for CWT guys to book tickets, planning to reach NYC on 4th morning so that I could attend 4th July celebrations in NYC. Thanks for assisting, looking forward to meet you guys. --Rangilo Gujarati (talk) 17:15, 15 May 2012 (UTC)Reply


Hi Pharos! Came here for the exact same thing as the above thread... I checked about 6 hours ago, and most of the beds are already booked... :( Also, is that the cheapest option available so far? Rehman (talk) 02:19, 5 May 2012 (UTC)Reply

Final Sign up

Hey Pharos, I have submitted the google doc with asked information and also want a seat on wikibus to DC, but no confirmation has been given for the same. Can you please confirm it with me. Thanks. Rangilo Gujarati (talk) 18:04, 12 June 2012 (UTC)Reply

Yes, we received your registration.--Pharos (talk) 18:26, 12 June 2012 (UTC)Reply

Thanks :) --Rangilo Gujarati (talk) 19:37, 12 June 2012 (UTC)Reply

Same question here. Moreover, now I have booked accommodation in NYC (Jazz of the Park hostel). -- Magioladitis (talk) 09:51, 21 June 2012 (UTC)Reply

Same here. I initially selected Jazz in my registration (HI wasn't available then), but I have now managed to change to HI-NY. (Don't know if it really matters, but) how do I make the modification? :) Rehman (talk) 10:59, 21 June 2012 (UTC)Reply


Hi Pharos,

Please add me to Wikibus list. I undersigned the list as early as 10:30, 17 February 2012 (UTC) at #21, and I thought it was OK, and did not know about the final form which is now closed, but I definitely have been interested and still would like to travel with that bus. Thank you! Bináris (talk) 12:38, 25 June 2012 (UTC)Reply

Is there still seat on WikiBus now?

I saw the FINAL SIGNUP at the googleform just now, and when I click on it, it said "The form 'Wikimania Takes Manahattan' is no longer accepting responses."

I wondered whether there's still seat on WikiBus now and whether I can sign up for the WTM now.

Thanks a lot! --Shujenchang (talk) 14:44, 26 June 2012 (UTC)Reply

Saturday Governor's Island event, heads up on heat!

Hello Pharos, You probably already know that Saturday in NYC is forecast to be 100ºF (with heat index values as high as 104, west wind 5-8 mph.) Some people could develop problems with heat exhaustion? Just wanted to see if you had an idea for a place nearby that is shaded and maybe even air-conditioned in case anyone has problems on account of the extreme heat. Also might be good to tell people to bring fans, umbrellas for shade, tarps to provide more shade (if can be supported by bamboo poles) extra water, and so on. Best, Invertzoo (talk) 12:55, 6 July 2012 (UTC)Reply


Hi Pharos, could you please write further meeting points and times to schedule page, especially for bus? Thanks a lot! Bináris (talk) 05:12, 7 July 2012 (UTC)Reply
