The Wikipedia Asian Month is an online edit-a-thon aimed at enhancing understanding among Asian Wikipedia communities. Taking place throughout November 2016, the purpose of Asian Month on the English Wikipedia is to improve the quantity and quality of articles relating to Asian countries. Last year, over 7,000 articles were contributed in 43 languages in Wikipedia Asian Month.
As a symbol of friendship between Wikipedia's Asian communities, each participant who creates at least four (4) articles that fulfill the criteria will receive a specially designed Wikipedia postcard from other participating countries.
Wikipedians who create the most articles on each Wikipedia will be honored as "Wikipedia Asian Ambassadors".
