Brief description: On the JWPmeetup 2016, a dozen of young wikipedians figured out, how we can reach and win new volunteers for the Wikimedia projects.
The results (in german) of this three day meetup can be found here: https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/JWPmeetup_2016
One of the mentioned aspects was, that new authors feel often lost in the big Wikipedia world.
To fight against this, we want to set up a tool, where they can find help and hints for the first steps summarized on a appealing place and not everywhere distributed on the Wikipedia.
In this tool, they also should be able to interact, this can be help for teaching Wikipedia.
Additionally there should be an option for presenting or learning MediaWiki's features in a sandbox wiki on this tool instead of the production cluster.
