This is the page to deal with discussion and nominations for the China Collaboration of the Month (ZHCOTM), previously China Collaboration of the Week (ZHCOTW). The ZHCOTM is a collaborative effort led by participants to improve articles on China-related topics on wikipedia. Its initial incarnation (as ZHCOTW) lasted for one week in November 2004, and was marked as inactive in 2005. In July 2011, the Collaboration was reactivated for a trial, to see if some articles might be improved collaboratively to good article or featured article level, and Shanghai was a popular pick for the first collaboration. However, little editing took place apart from an extended argument over population figures. Thus the China Collaboration of the Month was allowed to lapse back into inactivity.

The idea of a collaboration is that new editors might work alongside more experienced editors and the overall coordination might result in some high profile or large articles being worked up that might have proven too arduous for one editor. Anyone can nominate an article and can vote for the nominated articles. Selecting broader articles with a range of issues is preferable, so that a few areas of missing content can be investigated and formatting and prose/copyediting be examined.

The project aims to fill gaps about the China in Wikipedia, to give users a focus and to give us all something to be proud of. You can find a list of China articles on the Todo list on the China-related topics noticeboard or you can look in List of China-related topics or the China-related topics complete to do list.

You can see a list of current featured articles on China subjects here.
