Detailed notes[edit]

While items 2-11 (all items except from the first one) where supported mainly by one user (or two max) and discussed by one/two/three users max, we have to note that item 1: "Wikipedia should be a place where people feel happy and fun to contribute. " has been supported by 7-8 users (note that 10 users contributed in the whole strategy discussion). It is therefore the strongest and most important message sent by the community of Greek Wikipedia.
