- This presentation explains how to contribute to Wikipedia by using sports metaphors. It compares policies with game rules and team coaches; investigating sources and related articles with studying the game, field and rivals; working as a team with playing as a team; being civil with fair play; and enjoy contributing with enjoy playing. This way, the complexities of Wikipedia will be explained by using commonly known aspects of sports, familiar to wider audiences. The presentation is aimed at potential or unexperienced Wikipedia contributors.

- I've prepared a sports picture for each point of the presentation. I don't see how I could use videos. Can you explain your idea? Thanks! --NaBUru38 13:58, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
