At the research mailing list two relevant activities were mentioned that do
not adequately take place.
* *Gamified interfaces for microcontributions à la Wikidata game*
** **Ubiquitous outreach, supported by dedicated technology*
The notion exists that it is possible to do all kind of technological
things to make things stand out more but the big problem is imho not
technological. It is not content, it is the awareness that marketing is
more than selling things.
A respected Wikimedian made the bold statement that "Wikipedia could
absolutely have 100x the number of editors it has now".I would argue that
this is correct
My question is not could marketing methods make a difference but what
objectives do we have that will benefit from a marketing approach. What
does it take to be more pro-active towards our objectives?
