Hi! I'm Trevor, and I'm helping to build a VisualEditor for Wikipedia.

2
00:00:03,505 --> 00:00:07,505
Anyone can edit Wikipedia, but most who try are easily confused

3
00:00:07,762 --> 00:00:11,262
because Wikipedia's old code is pretty hard to understand.

4
00:00:11,287 --> 00:00:14,787
It was awesome when we created it twelve years ago,

5
00:00:14,925 --> 00:00:16,925
but if we're going to get the sum of all human knowledge to everyone,

6
00:00:17,327 --> 00:00:19,327
we've got to make it easier to share.

7
00:00:19,360 --> 00:00:22,360
VisualEditor is the biggest change to Wikipedia we've ever made.

8
00:00:22,604 --> 00:00:27,104
It makes writing on Wikipedia like writing a paper for class or sending an email.

9
00:00:27,196 --> 00:00:28,696
It's still a little buggy,

10
00:00:28,962 --> 00:00:31,962
but if you want a sneak peek at how Wikipedia is going to work in the near future,

11
00:00:32,207 --> 00:00:34,207
Create an account on English Wikipedia.

12
00:00:34,518 --> 00:00:38,018
Go to your preferences, and turn on the Alpha Version of the VisualEditor.

13
00:00:38,296 --> 00:00:42,296
You can even help us by using it, and then sending us feedback.

14
00:00:42,622 --> 00:00:46,122
So please, join us in making the sum of all human knowledge easier to share.
