Project ideaEdit

What Wikimedia project(s) and specific areas will you be evaluating?Edit

Is this project measuring a specific space on a project (e.g. deletion discussions), or the project as a whole?
Slovak Wiktionary doesnt allow pictures in any of the entries.

Describe your idea. How might it be implemented?Edit

Provide details about the method or process of how you will evaluate your community or collect data. Does your idea involve private or personally identifying information? Take a look at the Privacy Policy for Wikimedia’s guidelines in this area.
Link on main page Ombudsman: where one can report problems on national versions

Are there experienced Wikimedians who can help implement this project?Edit

If applicable, please list groups or usernames of individuals who you can work with on this project, and what kind of work they will do.

How will you know if this project is successful? What are some outcomes that you can share after the project is completed?Edit

Success would be when one can contribute pictures in entries.

How would your measurement idea help your community make better decisions?Edit

After you are finished measuring or evaluating your Wikimedia project, how do you expect that information to be used to benefit the project?

Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?Edit

Do you need people with specific skills to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? If you can’t implement this project, can you scale down your project so it is doable?
I do need support of international Wiki who will make ruling that all Wikis are same in different languages and all are ruled by same law.
