Grants:IdeaLab/Award points for editing
What is the problem you're trying to solve?
More people will enjoy editing, men and women will both start to edit, and sites like Wikipedia would earn more contributors than ever before.
What is your solution?
Wikimedia should inspire people to edit by means of giving them points once and everytime they edit. Refer to KhanAcademy.org (the point system).
- I mean no offense when I say this, but I think (not completely sure) that there are more coders. When you click the Edit section, you see the source code. Sure there is the program teaching you how to edit on Wikipedia, but it still requires some time and hassle. Maybe the experimental feature of the GUI editing should be enabled by default, instead of having people to navigate through the settings pane to find it. Mikechase3 (talk) 03:24, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
