Grants:IdeaLab/Expand the touch range and reach

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Expand the extent, into even TOUCH-able, in some way of Wikipedia.

By making it more accessible, it becomes mor tangible. And by being more tangible... There we go.

Humans are creatures with hands and the hability to write and touch-fellings by a reason.

Cheers & Love'On
