Project ideaEdit

What is the problem you're trying to solve?Edit

Many Wikipedias, for example the German Wikipedia, don't have equivalents of the pages Wikipedia:Harassment and Wikipedia:How to deal with harassment.

What is your solution?Edit

Create such pages, in all Wikipedias, and make them easy to find.

Project goalsEdit

Get involvedEdit

About the idea creatorEdit

I am contributing to the German Wikipedia since 2005.



I guess the best way would be to create a page here on Meta, where it can be marked for translation and thus easily translated into many languages. Then it could be copied into different Wikipedias in that languages or the Wikipedias can just link to Meta. --Base (talk) 16:01, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

  • I'm only active on the English Wikipedia, but this makes sense to me! Funcrunch (talk) 23:10, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
  • This seems like an excellent idea, which could in addition easily be combined with other ideas, too (such as for example providing access to a help team). Carolin (talk) 15:03, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
