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. After the latest one held on February 2nd, future lectures will be held regularly about every two months, thus the next lecture will be held in early April.
Total members: 172
Any Wikimedia users can join our group freely, as long as you meet our criteria stated in our constitution.
