Failures are an immanent part of academic processes driving research progress. Therefore, they are also present in citizen science projects. Still the research community tends to highlight the successes while willingly omitting the mistakes and thus, withholding important information from their peers. This article presents results from an interactive conference workshop, during which participants discussed their experience of failures in citizen science projects and proposed anti-fail tips to enhance processes in the future. With the workshop and this article the authors want to contribute to the establishment of an error culture in citizen science.
