As for Japanese Wikipedia, I am feeling dissatisfaction that collaboration between users active in global and users active in local is not much. The ones who are enhancing articles are who speaks only the native tongue. I am feeling a gap between them and global contributors.

This may be limited in Japan and Japanese communities in which their language is somewhat isolated from others, and where people can receive higher education in their native tongue, but the same thing may be said in other languages.

My main demands:Downsizing WMF to the absolute minium (manage the trademark, legal counseling, collecting money for the regions that cannot do that themselves)

Searching for a headquarter outside the US (Silicon Valley is too expensive and they don't get good employees there because the competition from Google, Facebook and Apple is too big). It has been proven by Wikidata that there are better locations for software providers) A chance for growth for regional and thematic organizations including their own fundraising or fundraising done by WMF for them MediaWiki should be entirely open Any change or extension of software should only be done by approvement and demand by the community only. Democracy. All supervisory positions shall only be appointed by editors, not by 3 people alone. All 10 of them and no guaranteed position for Mr Wales. No more Lex Jimbo, unblocking of Russavia Stop the distribution of assumptions regarding the ration of Women articles and the percentage of female staff. Conduct studies and work with acutal figures and not with guessed assumptions. The problem we have is not the number of articles about women but the quality of these articles. All activity here is just about quantity, not quality. Stop obsessively searching for new editors. If you lay the right foundations here they will come by themselves automatically. All effort in this direction did not yield any result until now. The activities until now were rather counterproductive. No more faster-higher-stronger when evaluating projects from volunteers. We are the ones who are financing their jobs. A central dictum is that WMF and its associated organizations exist for us, not the other way around. WMF has to learn that there is more than en.wikipedia and the US and we're not a US chapter. You cannot address us with this sickly sweet politically correct lingo that your US employees are used to.

The problem is the balance of "leftist" and "rightist" editors. "Leftists" tend to work fast but they are quite often very chaotic, "rightist" think very long before they start doing anything - they are perfectionist. At the beginning of the Wikipedia the majority of users were "leftists", but many impatient ones left Wikipedia for other faster social media sites such as Facebook. It wasn't bad as it helped to better structure Wikipedia and make it less chaotic, however now the "rightist" users are slowly leaving the project as well and the new ones "leftist" make turn Wikipedia into chaos. Therefore there should be a delicate balance between those 2 groups, and if moved in one or another direction it may means the death of the project. So - what we should do is to nurse this balance - help find newbie "leftists" when there are too many "rightists", but also take care of "rights" when there is too many "leftist" approaching too fast.

Hopes there are some ways for scholars to join as observers. I conceived this idea from hearing that a scholar says certain Wikipedia articles have problems. Articles can be improved dramatically with feedbacks from academia. Contributing to Wikipedia articles and its relevant discussions may be burdensome and only few numbers of professionals have joined so far, however, I wonder if some may agree to join in certain ways, such as pointing out article faults or endorsing references. I heard a doctor complaining it is hard to persuade a patient believing wrong description of Wikipedia. This way of participation would help such professionals to prevent false information spread.
