Last week's Question of the week focused on how Wikimedia could change
its technology to enable a friendlier and more welcoming environment.
Certainly new technology and increasing the friendliness is one tactic
that Wikipedia might use to increase participation. The following
graph shows that there are some key countries with a large online
populations where Wikipedia still has significant room to increase the
number of users and active participants. Specifically, in China,
Brazil, France, South Korea, Turkey and Indonesia, Wikipedia.org
ranking is below 10. What tactics do you think could be used to
increase participation in a specific country?
Sorry to be blunt but, Why is this question so Wikipedia-centric? Other
projects have proved ideal testing grounds for usability and such.

Imagine a world in which every human being can freely share in
the sum of all knowledge. Help us make it a reality!
