How to contribute?

Everyone can contribute to the site ThinkData.ch. If you know of a problem, a story or anecdote that could be added to  the existing scenarios, you can use the "My scenario"  form to send the description of your scenario.

ThinkData.ch will review your description and make any necessary adjustments to make a new scenario on ThinkData.ch

What should the description contents be for a scenario ?  

The description should summarize the problem. The type of data concerned, but also the people involved must be clearly defined. If your problem is related to a real example, it would be of interest if possible, to attach a link to a newspaper or anything else  that relates to the case.
