Grants:IdeaLab/Prevent Data Obfuscation/Fraud through Credibility System
What is the problem you're trying to solve?
Hoping to solve the problem of bad/incorrect data
What is your solution?
- Tie in a single sign on to a validity account (they can only sign on with a linkedin or facebook account - identity is kept secure and is only used for auditing purposes by wikipedia staff)
- Users can have a credibility rating system based on edit approval
- Users can mark an entry for editorial review (you can claim that info may be incorrect)
- those users would also have a credibility system
Make Wikipedia a source that can be trusted, and possible something that can be cited in research papers.
