Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

This is an attempt to balance the proportion of wikipedia contributions from women received. Many women do write substantial online articles that would be worth including on Wikipedia, but they are just never referenced, quoted, or transferred.

What is your solution?[edit]

When a user adds content or makes an edit on behalf of someone else, along with the CAPCHA, there could be a field for giving credit to a contributor that is not directly editing wikipedia.
