<languages/> Template:TNT <translate> [[<tvar|wikimania>Special:MyLanguage/Wikimania</>|Wikimania]] has been a community endeavour since its inception in 2005. Some frequent Wikimaniacs have taken on responsibility in some capacity year after year to ensure that each event is a success. However, local organising teams often reinvent the wheel, encountering similar issues every year.</translate>

<translate> To allow the conference to grow more smoothly, it seems sensible to pool the years of knowledge that we have into a body that oversees the Wikimania process from beginning to end in its yearly cycle. A permanent Wikimania committee would oversee the bids, handle jury selection for bid review, and provide continuity of experience and mentoring to each year's organizing team.</translate>
