Note regarding global bans
The Wikimedians of Mainland China is closely related or directly controlled by individuals under Foundation global ban. Globally banned individuals are prohibited, either in their own capacity or as agents of others, from all editing or other access privileges in Wikimedia Foundation websites, platforms and activities. Additionally, a globally banned individual may not coordinate activity that results in the aforementioned situations on Foundation sites, platforms and activities, via others. Users may still join the user group and participate in the group's events, but should be aware of and comply with the Global Ban policies, and must not participate in Wikimedia projects in proxy of globally banned users.

Wikimedians of Mainland China is a group of Wikimedians working to promote the Wikimedia Movement in Mainland China. We are a user-led organization established in January 2017 with the purpose of promoting the Wikimedia Project in China.

Online lecturesEdit

Since China is geographically diverse and hard to bring offline meetups to wherever newbies and potential contributors are, promoting Wikimedia movements online is also one of other major ways to introduce Wikimedia projects, as well as teaching basic editing skills and tips. By December 2017, we have successfully held 5 online lectures, with over 200 audiences in total. From the fifth lecture, we decided to put links and ways to attend it on a banner of Chinese Wikipedia a few days in advance, to attract more audiences.
