Wikimedia’s human engine makes it unique, beautiful, and successful. Its social dynamics are an extraordinary emergent phenomenon. One person creates something good, but imperfect; another improves upon it - frequently without arguing, grandstanding, or belittling. While negative behavior exists, Wikimedia has thrived on a bedrock of positive behavior. Wikimedia’s complex community can be frustrating to deal with; but those who care most deeply about our mission are within its ranks, and possess wisdom about how to engage the world in collaborative ways to build and document knowledge. The WMF must get to know its central asset, and find better ways to engage with its community. Some evidence:

  • 1000 people signed a letter to WMF, with no response.
  • Superprotect presents a stark new model for Wikimedia decisions, but lacks even a basic statement of when WMF will or won’t use it to override the community.
  • Media Viewer presents millions of pages that, for the first time, lack an "edit" button, or any invitation to the reader to get involved.
