I agree. The problem with life is that you will never get everything you want. The good news is: You still have plenty of opportunities and this is already a lot! More seriously: * We know this is used as an "entry door" for other cultural/educative activities by part of the prisoners * We will try to encourage prisoners to contribute and try to animate Wikipedia centric activities - similar approach as in the Afripedia project. Regarding the asynchronous contributions: This is a pretty complicated topic which (often) deals with challenging technical and cultural issues. But discussion if pretty open and new experimentations are welcome.
