Welches Problem löst dies?

Neue Wikipedia-Redakteure sind häufig vom Bearbeitungs-Interface eingeschüchtert, und befürchten außerdem, dass sie einen peinlichen Fehler (oder sogar Wikipedia kaputt!) machen könnten. Diese Form der Einschüchterung tritt nicht nur auf, wenn neue Redakteure alleine arbeiten; es passiert auch auf Redaktionsveranstaltungen.

Was ist die Lösung?

Connect new editors with experienced editor "mentors" who can provide them with personalized help. If you are running an editing event for new editors, have the mentors introduce themselves ahead of time.

Allgemeine Überlegungen

Effective mentors are conscious of the needs of newcomers, as well as newcomers' relative skill level. They should be patient and prepared to explain even the most basic concepts in detail, even multiple times if necessary.

When to use

  • An idea was brought up at the Editing Facilitator Training in Seattle to have workgroups: one experienced editor, one subject matter expert, and one person to look up resources. This represents different skillsets that could be helpful in developing Wikipedia articles.


"During WikiCamps organized by Wikimedia Armenia we always mix newcomers and experienced editors. All campers are divided into groups, which compete with each other. In each group we have experienced editors and newcomers. So to get high group points experienced editors help newcomers to edit in Wikimedia projects."[1]
