Comment This is an official policy page for Wikimedia Chapter (India) to select the Featured Wikimedian of the Month, please don't make any significant changes without prior discussion on the talk page, and approval from the Executive Committee.

Context

The primary idea behind this initiative is many editors who are extensively contributing online to various Wikimedia projects, have rarely interacted with the community, and featuring them will help us to fill that gap.

Featured Wikimedian is an official recognistion of Indian Wikimedians for their excellence in their respective projects. It also attempts to document the hardship stories which continue to motivate other editors. Featured Wikimedian has and can continue to play an important role in the community building. It is a platform for our community members to learn about and learn from fellow community members who they might not directly interact with. It serves as a great motivator by recognizing contributions. It conveys the momentum that is there in our community.

Workflow and dates concerned

Month 2 is the month for Featuring the Wikimedian. Month 1 is prior month of Month 2, and Month 0 to that of Month 1.
For example: If a Wikimedian is to be selected for May, then May is treated as Month 2, April as Month 1, and March as Month 0.
