On 20 May, an edit-a-thon was held for this project, initiated by Pakoire which included an in-person event at Auckland War Memorial Museum, organised by the museum, WANZ and the University of Auckland. The edit-a-thon was one of the largest in-person Wikipedia events held in Auckland, with over 23 participants and was run by Susan Tol and others. The event was a big success: between the editors in Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin and those participating online, with 17 new biographies being created, with a total of 58,400 words and 351 references added to Wikipedia and Wikidata.

Another major milestone was reached after the publishing of the new and improved article on South Auckland. At this stage, two major areas of metropolitan Auckland are left to complete, as well as articles on centres across the Auckland Region, including the Hibiscus Coast and Matakana Coast. 18 articles were created and greatly improved on Auckland localities, including features of South Auckland, such as the Ōtara Creek, Māngere Mountain, Oruarangi Creek and Kiwi Esplanade.
