Goals[edit]

Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

Yes, we've managed to achieve most our goals. Wikipedia Asian Month in 2016 went much better than we expected, so pretty happy about the result.

Outcome[edit]

Please report on your original project targets.


Target outcome Achieved outcome Explanation
50 Wikipedia projects 48 Wikipedia projects + 2 Wikisource Projects We have more than 50 Wikimedia Projects participate, while only 50 of them have the outcome
1,500 Wikipedians involved 734 Wikipedians wrote at least one articles + more than 50 local organizers We did not count people who just signed up as we did last time. Otherwise it will be some number around 2,000
7,000 high-quality articles 7,970 high-quality articles
15 Offline Edit-a-thon 9 Lack of human resource organizing it

  • 93.2% editors would like to receive updates on next WAM

Specific Feedback to Fountain[edit]

The suggestions are randomly listed, no priority by the order.
  • wmflab is not stable, broken many times in different regions, sometimes crashed. some back up? (Top request from the participants)
  • Not very efficient
  • should be able to add multiple articles at once
  • Would be better if expanded articles can include
  • Sometimes some browser has error message
  • turning redirects into articles
  • remove submissions (maybe at least on organizer's interface)
  • Realtime statistics, one suggest global top 10 scores, wmcharts
  • Make a statement in the tool, that imagine, template does not count into words
  • The tool should not accept articles that are less than 300 words
  • Mobile-friendly
  • Small bug: Links to articles with titles finishing with a "?" were broken (example on French contest: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/O!RUL8,2%3F was redirected to https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/O!RUL8,2)
  • participants can rename the entries
  • what if the article is deleted, maybe auto-checking it and mark it?
  • Use AJAX to avoid switching pages when adding articles, Add articles on the main page directly
  • Direct language selector via parameter in URL
  • Allow user to submit article even if machine does not allow that (Addis: I would say at least allow organziers do it for users in case of tool error etc)
  • Allow extra-days to submit articles
  • A notification via talk page once a day when an organizer evaluates the article
  • Recent actions

Learning[edit]

Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • Small recognition works amazing. We provide postcard and certificate just like last year. But we introduce a special postcard for 15 articles and Wikimedia T-shirt for global top 3. Not only Wikipedians willing to write more articles in the event, but also recognize their effort on Wikimedia Movement will improve our community health.
  • The International team is not as organized as expected.
  • Will have more specific position description for volunteers so everyone can have a sense about what need to be done.
  • We will stop using the word "Edit-a-thon" to create a feeling of easy participation.
  • Facebook ad only works when the post is specifically designed to get likes.
