Wikimedia Community User Group Hong Kong (WMHKG) is a Wikimedian user group covering the geographic region of Hong Kong. Affiliate status recognized by Affiliations Committee on 28 September 2018.

Residents of Hong Kong are welcome to join the user group. Non-locals can join also at this stage, but may subject to alterations of rights to participate in community matters. We also consider membership from people who are having connections with Hong Kong.

Mission[edit]

  • To raise awareness of the Wikimedia movement and free knowledge culture among Hong Kong citizens.
  • To support Hong Kong Wikimedian communities in English, Chinese, Cantonese and other Wikimedia projects.
  • To facilitate exchange of academic knowledge and cultural inheritance through Wikimedia projects in Hong Kong.
  • To co-operate with Wikimedia Foundation and its affiliates, Wikimedian communities and other organisations to further goals of the Wikimedia movement and enrich the Wikimedia projects.
  • To protect rights that the Wikimedia movement needs to provide existing services in Hong Kong.

Activities[edit]

We have hosted (and supported) multiple events since our formation in February 2017. Since 1 January 2019, events which we are represented are categorized into the following categories
  • Meetups ( Main: Meetup/Hong Kong)
  • Tutorials, Workshops and Editathons
  • Seminars and Forums
  • Education Projects (WikiEDU in Hong Kong)

Contacts[edit]

As a group, there is no single person in charge. Community matters can be discussed in a dedicated Telegram chatroom (please contact 1233 or WhisperToMe for access) and at meet-ups.

For requesting help in editing tutorials or edit-a-thons, you may contact 無聊龍 or 1233 via Telegram (@borogovia_zhwiki (無聊龍) / @theonly23333 (1233)) or email (無聊龍 / 1233).
