Like in Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp, the Wishlist makes Wikimedia community wishes come true!

The Community Wishlist Survey is an annual survey run by the Wikimedia Foundation's Community Tech team. The Community Tech team is focused on meeting the needs of active Wikimedia editors for improved, expert-focused curation and moderation tools. The creation of the Community Tech team is a direct outcome of requests from core contributors for improved support for moderation tools, bots, and the other features that help the Wikimedia projects succeed.

In November, 2015, Community Tech conducted the first cross-project Community Wishlist Survey, to help identify the features and fixes that are most important to Wikimedia editors. We invited contributors from all Wikimedia projects to submit proposals for the Community Tech team. After two weeks of collecting proposals, we asked them to vote on the proposals they were most interested in. The process has been repeated every year since.
