Abstract[edit | edit source]
“Just one article can change one’s judgement” is the title and is the concept that is adopted by Wikipedian Editor Project, a voluntary project to encourage volunteers to start their first articles which change their judgement of wikipedia as “an unreliable source” ignoring the efforts and time exerted by large number of volunteers. This lightening talk will go through the idea and vision of the project, the challenges faced it, its progression and its outcomes. It will deliver a message for readers of Wikipedia and editors from different levels of knowledge of Wikimedia.
