Project metrics

Project metrics Target outcome Achieved outcome Explanation
We aim 30 persons to create new accounts for these events. Among them, we project at least three people who will keep editing continuously. 3 persons to create new accounts 

            5people who will keep editing continuously.

The scale of the event is smaller than originally planned.
We have 10 inexperienced editors who regularly participate in our past editing events. We will raise them to be able to contribute by their own, without experienced Wikipedian support. One person was able to develop into an editor who can edit without much support. Some of our colleagues have editing experience, but they found it difficult to stay motivated to continue editing and improve their skills.
We will create four new articles, and upload photos of Okazaki city on to Wikimedia Commons. We will create 3 new articles and create 5 article addition The scale of the event is smaller than originally planned


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:

  • What worked well?
  • What did not work so well?
  • What would you do differently next time?

We were able to form a community of researchers and NPOs interested in gender issues. I was able to feel the possibility of working on Wikipedia editing, and I have made friends to continue collecting and editing materials for editing in the future. We were able to do our own weekly Wikipedia editing and continue to have online events where we could ask experienced editors questions. It seems that we can continue to work on it in the future.The originally planned Wikipedia Town in Okazaki could not be realized due to coordination with related parties and schedule changes. I think that the goal of attracting customers and the goal of the editors to train were set too high. Due to the epidemic of the new coronavirus infection, we have accumulated know-how for holding online events, so we would like to train editors by holding venues continuously even on a small scale.An increasing number of people have partially helped organize events and collect materials for sources. We will continue to propose forms that are easy for various people to interact with.
