Editing on Wikipedia is a bit hard for the average person. I would like to see easier ways to edit pages that do not require knowledge of html, etc.


Wikimedia could just simplify the editing process to make it similar to software like Microsoft Word.


I've tried to create Wikipedia pages without success. I found the editing quite hard, but I really would like to generate new content.

Key Questions

How could Wikimedia make this transition without disrupting normal activity?

Potential Costs

The cost would vary depending on who did what.
