The best idea
Social networking is very powerful tool. We need to activate SHARE option on every Wikipedia page which make easy for people to share the page on whatsapp, facebook and twitter. More the links people get, more they will visit Wikipedia. We should also talk to IT guys and try to make Wikipedia page as a default page on the pc.

About the idea creator[edit]


  • Project manager I need RECOGNITION... I want be part of Wikipedia... I want a card I.D. that say I am working in Wikipedia (like other have a I.D. card of Google, etc.)... and many students in the university will want a I.D. card that say they doing something special for the world. Wikipedia can give me official authorization for talk with the authorities of the Universities and start recruiting. We need a developer that work in the code for let put question at end of articles (I think that it is not hard) and generate a score (recognition) and let share it in Facebook.

  • Great Idea Kautuk1 (talk) 12:23, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
  • All people want respect and esteem in social networks, If I learn some new knowledge in Wikipedia I want that people known that I learn it very well... in this way if Wikipedia can put a list of question at the end of the articles and I can answer this question well... I want that Wikipedia give me a option for SHARE this achievement in my Facebook timeline with a score. And I want that Wikipedia can give me a "Diploma or Degree" when I study and answer well so many articles about some matter (Wikipedia can create a list of articles that I need read for get this "Diploma or Degree" ). If Wikipedia can evaluate me and say that I am proficient, expert or I am qualified in some matter... and I can share this recognition in Facebook. I think so many people want get similar o better recognition. I am focus in EGO and it never fails. Vladimir Mendoza (talk) 23:45, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
