Grants:IdeaLab/we make suggestions for the German DUDEN
What is the problem you're trying to solve?
Some words are wrong defined. For example the word "annexation (German: Annexion)" comes out of war times as forceful annexation but is now understood as a peaceful settlement and "referring to".
What is your solution?
Give advice to the editors of the GERMAN Duden which words meaning should be changed in the next edition and make a special area on wikipedia where the new definition is presented. e.g. Annexion _____________
new definition suggested/date of confirmation _______________ old definition /date of outdating

We present the suggestions and the results on Wikipedia on the definition pages for the several words.
It will grow.
Measures of success
I use Wikipedia regularly and see the results as well as in the Duden.
