Project ideaEdit

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

Wikipedia has an issue of vandalism and harassment via edits to pages. Wikipedia has added some security to some pages, however this is unfair to people who genuinely want to help.

What is your solution?Edit

I have thought of a way to stop harassment whilst also allowing new users to genuinely help. I believe that Wikipedia should have a 'buffer time' where new edits are checked for vulgar language and staff are able to see these changes aswell as other users.

Project goalsEdit

What we are trying to accomplish is to remove harassment and vandalism.
