Project idea[edit]

What Wikimedia project(s) and specific areas will you be evaluating?[edit]

Is this project measuring a specific space on a project (e.g. deletion discussions), or the project as a whole?
No.

Describe your idea. How might it be implemented?[edit]

Provide details about the method or process of how you will evaluate your community or collect data. Does your idea involve private or personally identifying information? Take a look at the Privacy Policy for Wikimedia’s guidelines in this area.
An article should start with the salient but grow to include the relevant ancillary information and grow into everything you can and should know about the topic. We have editors that cut down the information to what they are sure of in areas they are not interested losing interest and usability of the article.

Are there experienced Wikimedians who can help implement this project?[edit]

If applicable, please list groups or usernames of individuals who you can work with on this project, and what kind of work they will do.
It is the experienced one who are the problem. The article must conform to their style and be attributable to them.

How will you know if this project is successful? What are some outcomes that you can share after the project is completed?[edit]

The articles will be interesting not read like definitions.

How would your measurement idea help your community make better decisions?[edit]

After you are finished measuring or evaluating your Wikimedia project, how do you expect that information to be used to benefit the project?
It will be interesting and useful. Not dull and minimal.

Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?[edit]

Do you need people with specific skills to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? If you can’t implement this project, can you scale down your project so it is doable?
Look up previous versions of articles and go back to the most informative and build on it rather than the cut up version of many of the editors.
