Edit Wikipedia on the go

Contributory nav on Wikimedia mobile.Have you ever looked up something quickly on Wikipedia on your phone, noticed a small mistake, and wished you could fix it on the spot? Or maybe you didn’t realize that you could contribute? Now you can help keep Wikipedia and its sister projects up-to-date and accurate when you’re on the go by editing from your phone.
Wikipedia’s quality content is built by ordinary people all over the world watching and editing articles every day. Anyone with a computer can edit, but with over 15% of our users accessing Wikipedia on mobile devices and growing, the Wikimedia Foundation had to do more to let anyone with Internet access contribute to the sum of all human knowledge. For this reason, we’ve just released a new feature: editing for mobile.
As a trial, the first version of mobile editing requires a Wikimedia account. To get started, look for the pencil icon. If you don’t have an account, don’t worry, it’s quick and easy to create one on desktop or mobile! Once you’re logged in, you can use the pencil next to any section to make changes to that section.
For our first release, our primary goal was to create a fast, intuitive editing experience for new users and experienced editors alike, while still sticking with markup editing for now. We started simple so we could observe our users’ needs and expectations.Mobile editing interface.
We’ve already seen an encouraging number of users try out editing on our experimental beta site, where we first built the feature. Now that it’s available for all users, we hope to learn more about the kinds of edits people make on mobile and build more advanced features, including possible VisualEditor integration, in future releases.
We spent a lot of time testing the new mobile editor and trying to make it work on as many devices as possible, but this is still the first release. We would love to hear your feedback, any suggestions you have, and any problems you encounter, so we can continue to improve this feature. Tell us what you think on Twitter @WikimediaMobile.
If you love Wikipedia and have an Internet-enabled phone, give mobile editing a try. If you’ve never edited Wikipedia before, now is a great time to start – it’s quicker and easier than ever before. Help us make Wikipedia and its new mobile editor better!

[…] 维基百科(Wikipedia)无疑已变成我们生活的一部分,里面记录的知识包罗万象,加上每月超越 3 亿次浏览量(2013 年维基百科数据提供),堪称网络世代数据最热门的在线百科之一。虽说里面的知识是由各行各业的精英所撰写或勤劳的志工们找到数据后放入百科中,但难免会有错误,或是解释偏差的情况,这时就需要有人帮忙进行订正和改写了。而根据维基媒体基金会的调查,大约有 15% 的民众都是通过移动设备浏览维基百科,也因移动设备的便利让维基媒体基金会瞄准这 15% 的使用者。 虽然早就抛出 Beta 版,但也因很多技术上的困难,包含像屏幕实际可使用面积还有过于复杂的编辑工具,让在移动设备上编辑维基百科这件事始终无法顺利的推广。不过在日前的更新提供了照片上传功能后,维基媒体基金会还是决定要来尝试一下,目前推出了第一个正式整合版,将给拥有维基账号的用户在移动设备上编辑的能力。维基媒体基金会也表示,这个版本可以让大家先熟悉如何编辑,也让他们可以观察大家编辑的情况,提供他们日后改善的方向。已经迫不及待想要上维基百科一展长才了吗,赶快去申请一个维基账号吧。 经由:Engadget 引用来源:Wikipedia […]
