The 2015-2016 Marathon (an editathon) is an event for any and all FTB Wiki contributors to take part in. It does not have an official start; it can start at any time a participant wishes so. However, after starting, said participant must continuously contribute for a year, or rather, for the rest of the year (until it is 2016).

Keep in mind times are subjective due to time zones. The ending/starting time for each editor will likely be at different times, but it should end at 12:00 AM in the editor's local time (or 00:00 in 24-hour time).

All wiki activity is encouraged; new documentation, translating, maintenance, etc. Bathroom/snack breaks are okay, as long as they aren't too long.

Outcome

Participation was concerning at first, but improved as the night progressed. There were four "editathoners" in total, all experienced FTB Wiki Staff members. There was 191 edits total, with 50 new pages created. Reactions were generally positive, and the results were fairly productive. More editathons will occur in the future, and likely before the end of the year.
