Growing Wikinews to counter the Balkanization of the body politicEdit


I'm asking all the Wikinews administrators for their thoughts on how Wikinews and the Wikimedia Foundation more generally might respond more effectively to the challenges to democracy and world peace that many people perceive in the rise of the xenophobic right in the US, Europe, India, the Philippines, and elsewhere. I've proposed a workshop on this subject for WikiConference North America, October 18-21, and I've engaged User:Pi zero and User:Gryllida in discussing this at Wikinews:Water cooler/proposals#Retaining contributors with compatible projects. Pi zero and Gryllida think the numbers I scraped from meta:Wikinews are wrong. That may be, but I don't think it changes the fundamental question.

I hope you will contribute your thoughts to this discussion -- both online and hopefully also at WikiConference North America.

I'm interested in your feedbackEdit

Brian, you had been a lot of help some years ago, when I contributed to two Wikinews stories, and I see you're engaged in trying to improve the site. I recently came along here again, in a failed attempt to start a new article, and I'm somewhat shocked about the disturbing lack of fresh content here. Something needs to be done, obviously! I've got some ideas and I'm very interested in your opinions on some points for discussion I added to Wikinews talk:For Wikipedians. Pls weigh in!
