Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
Each year, the Wikimedia Foundation publishes our Annual Plan of what we hope to work on. We work together with community members to shape, clarify, and commit to a wide range of changes that will make things that bit better.
In the Editing department, our work is to provide and maintain "collaborative, inclusive tools for creating and editing free knowledge". That covers all forms of editing – be it creating or improving pages, spotting and fixing vandalism, working through backlogs, collaborating with fellow community members, managing processes to delete pages or deal with disputes, correcting OCR scans of books, or many other forms of content volunteering.
This panel of the product managers from Editing want to speak about what we did in 2016–17, discuss what we've got planned for 2017–18, and most importantly hear from everyone in our communities about how well things are going and what areas need support.
What will attendees take away from this session?
You'll know more about what's likely to happen with the tools that help you edit, find out how recent changes have had an impact on the wikis, and help steer our work in future.
