SummaryEdit

Summary for the discussion:

Line Statement (summary sentence) Keywords
1 What each and every one of us achieves by contributing is a larger and better encyclopedia. Contributors come first, results follow. contributors
2 In principle encyclopedias should be written by experts, not volunteers, but since even Store Norske Leksikon only gets a small amount of money for that purpose, we should get comfortable with the idea that volunteer encyclopedists are here to stay. professionalization, volunteers
3 The idea about professional writers is a noble one, but since there are no money it's not something we should prioritize. Whatever money we get should go to Wikimedia Norge to employ people who can support the hundreds of volunteers. professionalization, volunteers
4 Any professionalization should happen by making people who work at GLAM institutions write as part of their work, not by hiring experts ourselves. professionalization
5 Sami projects (by extension: minority language projects) should get state support via the national budget. minority languages
6 Professionalization should not happen via employees per se, but via microgrants, etc, to support volunteers who want to work in a more systematic fashion to support their areas of interest. professionalization, microgrants
7 We don't focus enough on the quality of articles, especially when it comes to intentionally placed misinformation. quality assurance
8 We need to create a more streamlined process for exchanging information across various projects. cross-wiki collaboration
9 Policies and guidelines should be centralised, not customized per-wiki. A central repo for guidelines and help pages that can be translated would simplify a lot of things on the local level. policies, guidelines, centralization, translation
10 We need tools that make it clearer for newbies how articles should look, what should be included. tools, newbies
11 Relevance criteria for articles are arbitrary, need better prioritization. inclusionism
12 Quantity and quality shouldn't be seen as two opposing things. The overall quality of the encyclopedia is the factor of individual article quality times number of articles. quality, quantity
