I think a prime focus should be on how we can help readers become
contributors (that's also related to my team's primary goals). This
does not just mean editing, but any form of contribution, including
creating drafts, fixing disambiguation links (and other
micro-contributions), uploading images, categorization, adding labels
(Wikidata), and so much more.
There are small steps people can take into contributing, which I think
is better than a small step where they still define themselves as simply
If/when we provide ways for readers to provide constructive feedback, we
should look at having them anchor it to something concrete, whether it's
a section, a range of text, a particular image, etc.
