The Wikipedia Asian Month is an online multilingual edit-a-thon aimed at building understanding among Asian Wikipedia communities. Taking place throughout November 2015, the purpose of the Asian Month on the English Wikipedia is to improve the quantity and quality of articles about Asian countries and regions.
As a symbol of friendship between Asian Wikimedia communities, each participant who contributes at least five articles that fulfill the criteria will receive a specially-designed Wikipedia postcard from the other participating countries. Countries and regions sending postcards for this project are Mainland China, India, Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand.
The Wikipedian who contributes the most qualified articles on each version of Wikipedia will also be honored as "Wikipedia Asian Ambassador".
For an article to be considered as part of the Wikipedia Asian Month, it must adhere to the following rules:
The new article must be created by you between 0:00 UTC on November 1, 2015 and 23:59 UTC on November 30, 2015.
The new article must have a minimum size of at least 3,500 bytes and a length of around 300 words (the word count excludes templates, infoboxes, references, etc.)
You can also expand an existing article that is less than 4000 bytes. You need to expand this article by at least 2000 bytes and roughly 300 words, (the word count excludes templates, infoboxes, references, etc.) and the expanded article needs to have at least 4000 bytes. Only edits made during the event will be counted.
