I'm probably not the only one starting to think ahead to Wikimania 2013. So today, I did a rather massive overhaul of the Wikimania pages on Meta -- trying to both wrap my head around the event's history, the process of venue selection, and existing documentation -- and also trying to organize it in a way that will make it more accessible as other try to educate themselves.
I sort of wish I'd taken a screenshot or two of the Category structure before I started, because to be blunt, it was *awful*! I hope what I've left behind is an improvement. If you want to take a look at the havoc I've wreaked, you should probably look at:
Or just pore over my (metaphorically) OCD-fueled recent contribs: http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?limit=50&tagFilter=&title=Special:Contributions&contribs=user&target=Peteforsyth&namespace=&tagfilter=&year=2011&month=10
I hope this is viewed as a net positive. In hindsight, as I was getting deeper into this, I started to realize that I maybe should have stopped to seek consensus before making such extensive changes. But I am pretty confident you'll like what you see -- if not, please let me know, and I'll do my best to undo any damage :)
