Wikimedia Community User Group Malaysia
This page is still under construction until 9 September 2020

This page is the 2020 Annual Report for Wikimedia Community User Group Malaysia (MYS) for the period of 10 September 2019 – 9 September 2020. This annual report is the third report submitted by the user group after its official formation and formal recognition on 10 September 2017.

Note: By default, all of the links written here are directed to Meta-Wiki pages. If not, then it will be directed to English Wikipedia pages, and some to Wikimedia Commons or third-party websites.


This third year of the user group establishment saw a big milestone achievement in their presence in Malaysia. On 12 February 2020, the user group has been officially registered and listed as a non-governmental organization under the National Registration Department of the Ministry of Home Affairs of Malaysia under the name Wiki Community Welfare User Association Malaysia (official English name) or Pertumbuhan Kebajikan Komuniti Pengguna Wiki Malaysia (official Malay name).


Three active Wikipedia editors voluntarily formed the high committees to maintain the documentation works required for the user group. In day-to-day reality, everyone helped each other whenever who is available to run the user group with other editors who are not high committees. Starting from the 2018-2019 period, we shall include the other core committee members in the committee sections.


The following list is the new editors who joined the user group because of the outreach events made by the user group during the 2020 reporting period. Only those who have made their Meta-Wiki or Wikipedia username and user pages will be listed here. During some meetups, there were people who only became audience or passively participated in without having their hands on the computers.


Note: By default, all of the events are meetups, unless specified otherwise; or if they are more detailed than just meetups. All locations are in Malaysia, unless specified otherwise. All events were organized by the user group or the second party we were dealing directly with, unless specified "(participated)", in which we took part in a larger event organized by the third party.





  • Conference is a full-day event with detailed in-depth knowledge exchange and/or training in editing Wikipedia and Wikimedia Foundation offline projects
  • Meetup is a general meeting between editors face-to-face discussing Wikipedia without really focusing on Wikipedia in the Internet
  • Presentation is a one-way explanation about Wikipedia to audience in which the audience do not really engaged in editing Wikipedia
  • Workshop is an event where there is presentation and also the engagement from the audience in learning or editing Wikipedia in their computer



The following planned meetups are the meetups in which the user group had already an initial discussion within this second year of user group (10 September 2019 to 9 September 2020) with the institution/venue to make a Wikipedia meetup in the future, but has not yet been confirmed regarding the scope, date and time. Therefore the listing is without any specific order of immediate occurrence.

Articles createdEdit

During the events, many of the new editors were shown by the experienced editors on how to create a new Wikipedia article from scratch. The following list are the articles created during or because of any of the meetup held by the user group. On the right side are the photos uploaded during Wikipedia meetup events organized by the user group.
