Describe your idea. How might it be implemented?
articles which are good can be re-written with minimum words for maximum effect as many who know subject may not be good writers. i am extremely happy to help review articles which come within range of above mentioned subjects. sadly masters are few and wikipedia vast. people need precise info briefly which is my forte
Are there experienced Wikimedians who can help implement this project?
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.
i have only one person with whom i work and share. sanskrit scholars abound but sanskrit masters hardly any presently, so our next project is sanskrit learning course which is practical intuitive quick effective and fun
good info on wikipedia is objective so may assessment be done by others
How would your measurement idea help your community make better decisions?

About the idea creator
am yogi, writer, translator of ancient sanskrit texts, and if i may say so by blessings of my guru attained excellence in sanskrit and able to give precise english equivalents. so often i see articles which are not just informed but conflicting with other well-established articles which are already on wikipedia. we need people who can keep overall track of their particular fields of knowledge. i assure and can also prove that i am excellent in my particular field which is sanskrit, yoga , indian philosophy called darshana, jyotisha/astrology... which i learnt from my guru, which they say is one of the best ways to learn such subtle subjects
