Why Edit Wikipedia?

Wikipedia is now the number-one information source about New Zealand in general and Whanganui in particular. Whanganui’s Wikipedia presence is not very good, and we’re the best people to get it right. Wikipedia needs more voices from New Zealand, from outside the main centres, from women, and from Māori.

Anyone can edit Wikipedia; you don’t need to be an expert. There are plenty of articles that need writing, proofreading, photography, research, and referencing. Some familiarity with computers and library research are helpful, but all ages and backgrounds are welcome. We can all help make Wikipedia better.
