You are third person to respond as if my email was about me personally looking for help editing. And the second to snip my writing out of all context.  Steven seemed to actually get what my concern was.  You can hate whatever you like, or dislike as the case may be.  It is not going to help WMF reach all the people who will be using apps despite your opinion.  I don't need any help, as I have figured out a workable solution. There are thousands of people, going by the ratings number, that are consuming Wikipedia in way that will make it very difficult to convert them editors and possibly even to communicate with them through banners. That is what concerns me.
