  1. Achieve continued growth in readership

  3. Increase Participation
  4. Stabilize and improve the infrastructure
  5. Encourage Innovation


Expose particular article stats for all articles on various Wikipedias (perhaps other projects as well?) in an easy to see "Dashboard".


As a means of easily making participation transparent and working the virtuous circle between Quality, Participation, and Reach, we should expose statistics for articles in a dashboard on each. Specifically, we should expose, for instance: number of external pages linking to this article; number of links within our projects to this article; number of edits to this article; number of individual authors working on this article.
