List of attendees

Hello, I just saw on Template:Attendees/100 that some WMF staffers are adding themselves to the list, which is very nice. This, together with your answers on staff at the hackathon, reminded me that it would be even nicer if whoever at WMF has/decides the list of WMF attendees (which will be decided soon or have recently been decided, I think?) added them all to the list and encouraged them to add more details. WMIT has always done so with its scholarships because it gives more visibility and more chances for the funded attendees to connect and have an impact: it was suggested for the global committee's scholarships too, but wasn't done yet; however for staff there shouldn't be any roadblock AFAICS.

I'll point our travel coordinator to this request. Sharihareswara (WMF) (talk) 16:08, 31 May 2013 (UTC)Reply
We are just starting the process of registering WMF staff, so there are very few, if any appearing on the list right now. They will be encouraged to add themselves to the attendee list when they register. Thanks for bring this to our attention. [User:EYoung (WMF)|EYoung (WMF)]] (talk) 17:08, 31 May 2013 (UTC)Reply
Ok. Even a bulk addition with just the names for the lazies is fine; but if everyone adds self, with more details, that's even better. --Nemo 08:00, 1 June 2013 (UTC)Reply
