On September 1, 2023, Taufik Rosman and I launched a project called Wikimedia Japan-Malaysia Friendship. This project aims to enrich Wikimedia contents about Malaysia and Japan and strengthen the collaboration between the two communities.
Before the launch
We met for the first time at Wikimania 2023 in Singapore and soon hit it off. We have something in common; organizing student Wikimedian community, holding editathons, and wanting people to continue to edit. It was natural for us to promise to collaborate after the event. Then, on September 1, we launched the project.
Message to Wikimedians
After the launch, we sent a message to Wikimedians.
Dear Malaysian Wikimedians
Hello. This is Eugene Ormandy from Japan. I and Taufik launched a project called [[Wikimedia Japan-Malaysia Friendship]] on MetaWiki. This project aims to enrich the Wikimedia contents about Malaysia and Japan and strengthen the collaboration between the two communities.
Under this project, we will make blog posts or hold some events. If you are interested in this project, please add your name to “Participants” section.
If you have questions or requests, don’t hesitate to express them on the discussion page.
I hope we can make Wikimedia better together.
We will carry out various activities such as editathons, blog posts, and meetings. I hope that those activities will contribute to improve Wikimedia and deepen our friendship.
I appreciate many people; Taufic, Malaysian and Japanese Wikimedians, and staff of Wikimania 2023.
