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.


Featured Wikimedian is the offically 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. It also provides a great story for the media coverage.
