Wikimedians of Mainland China User Group is a group of Wikimedians working to promote the Wikimedia Movement in Mainland China. We are a user-led organization established in January 2017 with the purpose of promoting the Wikimedia Project in China.

As of September 2021, WMC with its over 300 members is the only active proposing user group representing mainland China.


  • Promoting Wikimedia Movement in Mainland China.
  • Conducting online and offline activities in Mainland China.
  • Helping novice Wikimedians (mainly from Mainland China) to study how to use and edit Wikimedia sites.

See User Group Constitution for details.

Online lectures


Since China is geographically diverse and hard to bring offline meetups to wherever newbies and potential contributors are, promoting Wikimedia movements online is also one of other major ways to introduce Wikimedia projects, as well as teaching basic editing skills and tips. By December 2017, we have successfully held 5 online lectures, with over 200 audiences in total. From the fifth lecture, we decided to put links and ways to attend it on a banner of Chinese Wikipedia a few days in advance, to attract more audiences.
