Grants:IdeaLab/Know Edit Admin Ready
What is the problem you're trying to solve?
(1)Number of editors
percentage of male editors>that of female editors
Women show less interest in wikipedia than men.
don't have time to edit wikipedia.
difficult for newcomers
Thinking that they don't have much knowledge to contribute an article.
Some women want to know the reason why they should edit wikipedia.
What is your solution?
There are many women who don't know wikipedia. Make them know wikipedia
In television series,there should be scenes in which stars are editing wikipedia.
Posting status about "wikiedit feeling" on social media. eg,"Today on wiki,so happy"
(3)via Websites and blogs
EXCHANGE Let people create a 5 sentence page about their websites,and make them put "edit wikipedia" icon on their websites SEARCH What do women search on google?
around 10 =Cartoon,Anime
around 20 =Actors,Singers,Meanings
around 30 = Beautifying tips,work
around 40 = Family,Places to travel
around 50 = TV,biographies
around 60 = religion
Wiki icon on websites about religion will make women around 60 know wikipedia.
But this icon shouldn't be a link this should be only a picture.
If they want to know what wikipedia is,they will search it on google.
If that icon is a link that directs them to wikipedia main page,they might close the tab.
(4) via games and applications
Let developers create a "5 sentence page" on wikipedia about their apps,and make them show edit wiki icon in their apps.
(5) via wallpapers
Beautiful wallpapers which contains the word "Wiki".
(6) via Photo Frame
In photo editing applications,there are "Time magazine" photo frames.
People should have "Wikipedia photo frames",too.
(7)via Competitions on wikipedia
Competitions on wiki that many people can take part in.
Wikipedia ringtone Competition,Wikipedia Animation Competition,Wikipedia Documentary Competition,etc(with voting system)
(8)via voting on wikipedia

The name of the country with highest number of female visitors should be shown on main page
For example, 10 women search the things they want to know on search engines. How many of them click wikipedia page?
a page contains many subtitles.
A girl writes the contents in a title and another girl another title in the same page.
To find the girls from the visitor list of that page.
If the girls are registered users,there should be a notification for each of the girls!
Eg Notification, A girl like you is interested in this page!Do you want to make sister editing with her?
"Your Highness,you have made 100 contributions on wikipedia.Meet another princess like you.And expand her 5 contributions".
Asking female wiki editors why they are editing wiki pages.
The name of the country with highest number of female admins should be shown on Edit section.
Wikipedia is not difficult! If men think wiki is easy,women must try to think like this.Must face these difficulties.
There is enough time. If men have enough time to edit,women must try to have enough time.
Editing wikipedia pages is not studying. But it is helping others easy to study.
To reduce the gender gap
