I was speaking to Logicwiki about this over the weekend - most of the proposals 
are not quality ones and the reason is possibly that the "Call for 
Participation" concept is alien to most of the target audience. Maybe we need 
to rephrase it and keep it really simple for people to understand, something 
along the lines of "Please submit your proposals to Speak or conduct something 
else related to Wikipedia at WCI 2011 here".

We also need an FAQ section badly IMHO.

Kind Regards,
