We will join hands with the Swedish Consulate General in Hong Kong to present a WikiGap Campaign. We will hold an offline event on Friday, 8th March to improve or create articles about women and LGBTQ+ in English, Chinese and Cantonese Wikipedia. For those who can't come, you are welcome to participate in the WikiGap challenge - a month-long initiative which more or less serves the same purpose. Let us close the gender gap!

You're strongly advised to create an account beforehand and bring your own laptop to the event.

Procedure 流程Edit

Before the event 活動之前
  • Please think of a prominent woman or LGBTQ+ figure who deserves an entry in English/Chinese/Cantonese Wikipedia. Then check if they already have an article there. If not, list them below. Articles with a tick has been created before.
English 中文 粵文
Example: Audrey Tang  Y 唐鳳  Y 唐鳳
  • Upon deciding on what you are going to write, we suggest preparing sources before the event. Finding materials only during the occasion will hamper efficiency. (Though, you can think of a woman / LGBTQ+ figure beforehand and translate his/her biography on that day to get rid of the problem.)

Feedback 活動後的回應Edit

  • I think that this event is a failure. Tricia told me that they only receive a handful feedbacks from Facebook (maybe it is too hurry), and the site notice in Chinese Wikipedia did not work as some of our admins are opposing the usage of full-color banners, which hampered our ability to spread the word out. The Facebook pages of both the user group and the consulate can't reach out to many people (if compared to AAA, they have 10,000 followers). To make the matter worse, it rains on that day. Both TYC and WhisperToMe thought that it is still productive (as above), but that went against our original intention - no one besides veteran editors and consulates staffs come, and we can't do a lot of teaching and editing.
