This is a really great project - it's fantastic to see it taking place. :-) Some comments/suggestions:

  1. Page title - suggest moving this to a title containing 'Orange', if other partnerships will come in the future (or is this FAQ intended to be updated on a rolling basis as new partnerships come out, or the details change?)
  2. Order of the content - I'd recommend emphasizing which countries this will take place in, and also which projects it applies to, higher up in the Q&A, since I think those will be particularly interesting to the community.
  3. Wikipedia languages - it might be worthwhile integrating some of the ideas behind en:QRPedia into the mobile phone access mechanism, such that the user gets redirected to the language project corresponding to their phone language settings.
  4. "Q: What is the duration of this deal? A: Three years, through November 2014." - that's about 2 3/4 years, not 3 years. I'd recommend just removing the 'three years' bit.

Any volunteers? - we need a coloured in map showing populations, languages supported etc. This is so well timed and on-message. I'm optimistic that this will be renamed Wikipedia Zero as I suspect other phone companies will realise that "text only" will appear miserly by comparison to this deal.

A bit sad that Wikimedia France was not kept in the loop a little bit (dunno... dinner in Paris with some French wikipedians at least :)). But otherwise, the project is great great great.

One thing I have been wondering about is how much they will succeed to make sure their users know about the special deal. That must be quite a challenge. Anthere

I moved this page to foundation wiki as it is linked to PR. Please continue the discussion there. Akapoor (talk) 18:58, 10 May 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
