*Apologies if you receive this as a cross-posting. I am re-sending this one
last time as there is an October 11 deadline for review, and the grant has
been updated a bit. **Thanks in advance.*
I have written a *Wikimedia Grant Proposal: "Twitterpedian-in-Residence"* and
would be grateful for review, feedback, advice, and endorsement, if the
proposal seems positive.
In the last few months I have seen, been referred to, or tagged by friends
(who know about my Wikipedia obsession) on quite a few social media posts
written by people who are very unhappy with their Wikipedia entries. People
don't know how to fix their pages. And there doesn't appear to be an easy
answer or approach to talk with a human about the problem. Often, they try
to fix the problem themselves, which only exacerbates the problem. And they
hate their picture, etc. It goes on and on.
After the last few experiences where I have done significant amounts of
editing, it occurred to me that a more formalized answer might be a good
beta test solution to this problem.
I am a strong believer in the Wikipedian-in-Residence programs and GLAM
initiatives, so I envision this proposal within that type of framework.
Thanks so much in advance,
