Abstract & description[edit source]

Abstract[edit source]

Seek opinions and advice from other language Wikipedians on why there are so few administrators in Japanese Wikipedia and how we can increase the number of administrators in Japanese Wikipedia.

Description[edit source]

Among the participants of Japanese Wikipedia, it has long been pointed out that the problem is that there are very few administrators, and campaigns to increase the number of administrators have been carried out several times, but they have not been successful. Therefore, I would like you to point out the problems of Japanese Wikipedia from the outside and propose measures.
