One thing we can do would be to make contributors'
names more visible.
Translators for WMF stuff too (Ting Chen made a good point about the
latter in Alexandria). Many websites gives clear credits to
contributors - not only for-profit media, but websites whose content
is mainly written by volunteers, like Global Online. In TED related
translations, their translators' names are on the same webpage of
video or transcript, and much visible than in MediaWiki history
I think that would be a great idea, although it does have some nuts
and bolts - some way or another, one will have to filter out those who
did just minor edits, for example, or people who do not want their
edits to be named. Then again, the strength of our system is that our
system doesn't need to be perfect, if it's community-editable things
will probably work out quite reasonable. I myself would be much in
favor of it, and if I did not fear the "that's not how we do things"
and "that's unwiki" crowd, I might even have considered doing a test
