In 2018 I restarted my Wikipedia journey editing mostly on Singapore related articles, expanding on Singapore related articles and wiki-gnoming activities.

Abstract & description[edit source]
Analysis of Singapore-related articles on Wikipedia, like a timeline of the editing activities around Singapore-related articles
The SGpedians’ notice board was created in 2005 (merged into WikiProject Singapore in 2020). There was a period of time when editing Wikipedia was pushed to the forefront with students participating (before 2010), and also several attempts to have a local affiliate setup. Since then, Singapore related articles languished while the MOS, GNG standards evolved.
We look into at where we are now on en.wiki, the efforts that the current group of committed editors have put in on Singapore-related articles, and paths forward in community building/engagement.
