Apakah Bulan Asia Wikipedia?

Wikipedia Asian Month (WAM) is an annual Wikipedia contest focused on the promotion of Asian content on various language-specific Wikipedias. Each participating community runs a month-long online edit-a-thon every November on their language's Wikipedia to create new content or improve existing articles about Asian topics apart from their own country.

The first iteration of this competition began in 2015 and each year the number of articles has increased and the participants have diversified and expanded. Wikipedia Asian Month has achieved much over 6 years: over 37,500 high-quality articles have been added in more than 63 language-specific Wikipedias by more than 2,900 Wikipedia editors. After 6 years of experience, the WAM 2022 is comming to its new version, and continue call for Wikipedia contribution on Asian related content.

There are millions of subjects you can read about on Wikipedia, but Asian topics are largely underrepresented on the internet as well as on Wikipedia despite being the largest and most populous continent. Without being presented on the internet, Asia's rich culture and history are hard to be learned and known by the rest of the world. Meanwhile, most Asian languages Wikipedia projects and communities are relatively smaller compared to its large population base. There are 9 Wikipedia projects that have more than 5,000 active users, yet only 2 of them are Asian languages. Among 39 Wikimedia Chapters, only 7 of them are from Asia.

Wikipedia Asian Month wishes to narrow these gaps. Supporting is essential for these communities to take more approaches to grow. Wikipedia Asian Month devotes itself to this supporter position for demands of community development. For many Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects / communities, Wikipedia Asian Month is their only online event. By participating in the Asian Month, you are empowering the WAM team and make all these supporters possible and available to these communities.

Unlike some other Wikipedia events, Wikipedia Asian Month isn't paying most of its attention to outreach to new users, or highlight extraordinary active editor. Instead, we give most of our effort to praise the core forces of the Wikipedian communities, who has constantly contributed to Wikipedia for a long period of time by writing serval new articles every year, or by making a couple hundred edits once a while.
