Aims/possible projects

  • New Zealand has a large amount of places with rich historical significance. It would be great to contact those responsible for these places and get them to contribute information and history to Wikipedia.
  • Bid for a WikiMania conference to take place in New Zealand. This would require that a strong and active New Zealand Chapter be established.

Roles an NZ chapter would play

  • Promotion of Wikimedia projects and Free content in general.
  • Encourage the use of Wikimedia resources in education. (Due to abuse, many New Zealand schools' IP's have been banned from editing Wikipedia)
  • Provide a first point of contact for media seeking comment from New Zealand contributors to Wikimedia projects.
  • Recruit New Zealanders to contribute to WikiMedia Foundation projects.
  • Organise conventions, workshops, and attend conferences.
