Wikimedians in Thailand/Timeline

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Pre 2011
  •[1] was a message board for wiki enthusiasts in Thailand from 2008 till 2011. Most of the members are Thai Wikimedians (and uncyclopedians). There was no connection with WMF nor intention to form a chapter. It was primarily a forum for technical exchange and some spill-over discussions from Thai Wikipedia and its sister projects.





  • WMF recognition
  • We are in touch with WMF mobile programs and a mobile operator (dtac). (Full report, Commons photos, discussions on Thai Wikipedia, and A detailed list of users and articles on Thai Wikipedia)
    • Online meeting with Indrid Flores (WMF employee) on the 15th of Jan.
    • Meeting/workshop with the mobile operator on the 10th of Feb (meeting), the 10th of March (workshop) and 19th of March (workshop). Three long-term Wikipedians were physically present and few other online volunteers were helping with admin requests/tool development e.g. Visual Editor and specialized tools at WMF labs.
    • The first article from this collaboration was shown on the first page of Thai Wikipedia under DYK section on 18th of March.
    • The mobile operator officially launched its 2014 Wikipedia contribution program in April.
    • More workshops were held on 10th, 23rd and 30th of April. Our volunteers (three physical+some online support) were in touch with the mobile operator and helped coach the workshop. The last workshop was held at Srinakarin Road on 9th May.
  • 2014-08 We have a representative attending Wikimania 2014 in London.
  • We have successfully organised Wiki Loves Monument 2014 in Thailand. This is the second time in Thailand. We have increased number of photo submissions and expanded our base of local partners. (competition page, PEG proposal, PEG report)
