Anonymous Contribution

Context

This practice applies mostly in the context of a volunteer-based Collaborative translation initiative.

Problem description

Recruiting and retaining good contributors is difficult.

Solution

Therefore, allow people to contribute to your site anonymously, without having to go through the hoops of a registration process. Then, make sure you have hooks that allow them to transition to higher levels of commitment, i.e. Flexible Contributor Career Path.

To mitigate the risk of spamming, use various collaborative quality assurance practices like Peer Review, Voting, Transparent Quality Level and In-House Revision.
