The M3P Foundation held its first edit-a-thon on Saturday 14 September 2013 at the National Archives of Malta in Rabat.

Join us for the 1st M3P edit-a-thon!

The event started at 1:30pm and ended at 6:00pm with refreshments.

Attendees to editathons are always asked to bring their own laptop with them to participate fully. Free wifi available at the venue.

What is an editathon?

The word "editathon" or "edit-a-thon" is a portmanteau of the words "edit" and "marathon".

In this case, "edit" is used in the sense of contributing edits to the M3P wiki.
