Wikimedia Singapore User Group is currently a Wikimedia user group in discussion phase. Mailing list is Wikimedia-sg and the WikiProject Singapore on the English Wikipedia.

Objectives & goals[edit]

The proposed objectives of the user group are:

  • Organise public outreach activities around the country;
  • Act as a hub for Wikimedians in Singapore;
  • Collaborate with other regional affiliates in the ESEAP Hub and worldwide where possible, and other thematic affiliates if and when there is a need;
  • Promote Wikipedia and various Singapore Wikimedia projects throughout Singapore and rest of the world;
  • Act as a voice and representative for the Singaporean Wikimedia community.

To achieve the objectives, we seek to organise activities to recruit new members, and retain current members. These activities include meetups, seminars, training sessions, editing drives, etc. We are also open to the prospect of partnering with other organisations to support thematic purposes, i.e. education (using Wikipedia as an education tool), open data, etc.

The proposed goals of the user group are:

  • Establish a foundation for the user group to grow on and evolve.
  • Expand Singapore-related content on various Wikimedia content projects.
  • Increase on-wiki participation from the Singaporean citizens and residents.

Current doings[edit]

  • Membership recruitment among existing active editors
  • Working group to work out the necessary logistics and paperwork

Activity log[edit]

The current user group started meeting in person on 22 April 2022, and have been meeting on a semi-regular basis.
