Yes, in fact in one of my answers I suggested using some of the Teahouse project and IdeaLabs solutions as particularly effective in reducing this unfortunate effect. I also studied this phenomenon in my book. Pundit (talk) 20:08, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
- The problem with universal approach is that communities need to have autonomy. But I think you're right that it is a general problem. This is why I believe that the Teahouse project should be propagated to communities, who would like to have it (after all, there is no reason why not to allow implementation - at a fraction of a cost of designing it). Also, we could think of a more formal welcoming of newcomers (a separate role) as well as of mentoring (pairing more experienced editors with their less experienced padawans). If it worked on one larger project, it could be an idea to propose to others. Pundit (talk) 07:21, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
What future IdeaLab campaigns would you like to see?
I’m Jethro, and I’m seeking your help in deciding topics for new IdeaLab campaigns that could be run starting next year. These campaigns aim to bring in proposals and solutions from communities that address a need or problem in Wikimedia projects. I'm interested in hearing your preferences and ideas for campaign topics!
Here’s how to participate:
- Learn more about this consultation
- Vote on and submit new campaign topics in the AllOurIdeas Survey
- Discuss campaign topics and ask questions on the IdeaLab talk page
Future IdeaLab Campaigns results
Last December, I invited you to help determine future ideaLab campaigns by submitting and voting on different possible topics. I'm happy to announce the results of your participation, and encourage you to review them and our next steps for implementing those campaigns this year. Thank you to everyone who volunteered time to participate and submit ideas.
With great thanks,
