22 C 5 We need to teach NGOs how to access, use our resources and enrich them in their local languages.CreativeC38 NGOs partners
23 D 4 Being the most respective source of knowledge seems enough. Aiming for more is risky and hardly achievable since we will always face detractors and eventually make mistakes. Fuucx consistency

30 D 5 The millions of teachers around the world who use Wikipedia for practical purposes, we could perhaps tell them that there is more than just the encyclopedia but also the sister projects. TigH teachers

47 E 1 More outreach, a better understanding of academic, journalistic, etc., better recruitment. Tpe.g5.stan outreach
48 E 5 If we could get involved in the knowledge ecosystem, it would allow us to build a relationship between Wikimedia projects and what should make Wikimedia projects easier to understand, but also to attract new contributors. Tpe.g5.stan outreach
49 A 3 Reconsider the secondary sources dogma in order to make room for non-secondary sources. As for now, there are several communities where secondary sources are non-existent. Touam secondary sources
50 A 3 The process of accepting articles should be revised and made more democratic so as in contentious cases discussions should be handled by specialist contributors (Domi1789). However anyone could self-nominate specialist on any topic (Touam). articles review
51 A 3 Wikipedia does too much of instantaneity, similarly to social networks, as shows articles related to recent terrorist attacks where sources are not sought for thoroughly. Domi1789 instantaneity
52 A 3 We look like social networks "articles" created about the small world of show bizz, TV, singers, footballers, etc. Is this the encyclopedia we want? Domi1789 quality
53 A 3 I am wary of the "progress" brought by computers and automation. Domi1789 automation
54 A 4 It would be appropriate, I think, to target the groups of people who are underrepresented within the contributors community and decide where actions need to be taken. Olimparis survey
55 A 4 In my opinion inclusion necessarily implies to improve the design of the site.  The current look is not bad, but its look is tailored for a typical Western male audience. Touam design
56 A 5 Institutions and associations working in the fields of diversity and equality. Nattes à chat partners
57 A 5 Individuals like Sheryl Sandberg, public institutions as Ministry of Human Rights, research and training institutions. Nattes à chat partners

61 A 4 We have to put an end to what makes our communities unhealthy: vandalism, which forces our patrollers to perform an exhausting work, a work of Sisyphus. Anglo-norman counter-vandalism
62 A 4 We should restrict access only to registered contributors, whose administrators have contact information, and if they engage in vandalism, can be suspended or excluded (Anglo-norman) [...] I do not share the idea of restricting Wikipedia to registered users only as assuming good faith seems to me an important pillar of inclusiveness. Nattes à chat counter-vandalism
63 A 4 A first step can consist in communicating around vandalism, even contacting former known vandals and expose what led them to change. Nattes à chat counter-vandalism
64 A 4 Against vandalism, it may be necessary to train patrollers and recruit more, have a patrol exercise included in the wikiMOOC curriculum? Nattes à chat counter-vandalism
65 A 4 Take into account childcare costs in the budget of our events, just like the Art+Feminism campaign did, will allow more women to join us. Nattes à chat childcare

67 A 4 We need to ensure the protection of those who take risks to report what is wrong about society (ex: whistleblowers). Nattes à chat safety
68 D 4 Wikipedia must succeed in convincing these people, the complotists to name them, of the relevance of its content and the processes of its elaboration. Failing to do that will leave a growing part of skeptics who are sooner or later likely to harm us (Euloiix). However a conspiracy theories supporter is appallingly difficult to convince. He is an irrational believer (Cedalyon) skepticism
69 D 4 Wikipedia is as simply an encyclopedia would benefit greatly from being coupled with an efficient and lively educational system. Cedalyon partners
70 D 5 Empowering Wikiversity can surely increase the visibility and seriousness of the movement as a whole. Cedalyon wikiversity
71 D 4 Perhaps it would be necessary to encourage seasoned and specialist contributors to engage in Wikiversity. Cedalyon wikiversity
72 D 4 Interested contributors, if they benefit from a certain mentorship can produce adapted and quality pedagogical contents on Wikiversity. Cedalyon education content
