Abstract
  • Wikipedia Asian Month is the online editathon held every November since 2015. Promoting diversity in the Wikimedia Movement is one of the major goals of the Wikipedia Asian Month, which we achieved some amazing results for last year. In 2015's Wikipedia Asian Month, 6,096 articles were created on a total of 43 language versions of Wikipedia, which includes 23 communities that have less than 10 thousand articles. In the session, we will introduce the Wikipedia Asian Month, the idea and strategy behind it, and how Wikipedians can join the possibly largest Wikipedia online editathon ever.
