Welcome to WikiProject Malaysia on English language Wikipedia, a WikiProject dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to Malaysia on subjects with national, regional and international significance. The project was formed to coordinate the development of Malaysia-related articles and maintain the Malaysia Portal. This project also serves as a venue for Wikipedia editors to share information and resources regarding the improvement of articles related to Malaysia. WikiProject Malaysia was established on 20 July 2007.

As of 17 September 2021, there are 13,120 articles within the scope of WikiProject Malaysia, of which 20 are featured and 95 are good. This makes up 0.21% of the articles on Wikipedia and 0.2% of featured articles and lists. Including non-article pages, such as talk pages, redirects, templates, categories etc, there are 41,418 pages in the project.

  • Anything physical that is located inside Malaysia (e.g. buildings, organizations, nature in Malaysia etc).
  • Any local or international events held in Malaysia (e.g. national day, regional conference, international sporting events etc).

  • International presence and events with Malaysian relevance or participation (e.g. embassies of Malaysia, Malaysian bilateral relations, Malaysian participation in international organizations etc).
  • Coverage of the Malay language is not included within WikiProject Malaysia by default (it should be part of WikiProject Languages), although articles covering specific usage within Malaysia are included in the scope.

Any member of WikiProject Malaysia may assess Malaysia-related articles by following the guidelines and instructions. If you aren't sure about an article, ask about it on the assessment talk page.

Any individual editors may rate stub, start, C-class or B-class for quality of an article. An A-class is the highest scale, assigned after a formal review by the project as a whole, rather than at the discretion of individual reviewers. Request of an A-class is possible through an A-class assessment request. The final assessment (rejecting/granting) is given after all reviews are taken care, especially for objections/oppositions.

Good Article (GA) and Featured Article (FA) are quality scales that are awarded through peer review outside the WikiProject. Guidelines and rules on how to nominate an article are given in the corresponding GA/FA pages. Usually, an article of B- or A-scale from the project has a good chance to pass the Good Article criteria. Furthermore, a GA-scale article has a good chance to pass the Featured Article criteria.
