Sticky Notes: Adding expandable comments to the margins - for beginners (no wiki code or markup knowledge required)
That's an interesting idea. I think this would be especially useful for the editors at en.wikinews, who have for a long time expressed an interest in something to this effect. Perhaps you could share it with them?
I'm a little wary of it being used on Wikipedia, however. It, like many open-access features of wikis, can be abused, especially on a project plagued by vandalism. Would the sticky comments appear in recent changes to be vetted by patrollers? Will it be possible to find a history of comments? Can inappropriate information be expunged or oversighted? Would high-traffic articles be clogged with unhelpful commentary? The current page at w:WP:Sticky notes doesn't seem to address any of that.
That was a great suggestion about the wikinews group. I updated them.
Those are also really good questions. Thank you. I will update the page, somewhat based on the discussion.
You're welcome. I think the idea has a lot of merit, but, like any complex and bold new proposal, needs to be thoroughly thought out before we can dream of implementing it. The strategy wiki is in a bit of a lull right now, so I wouldn't expect a lot of replies here in the immediate future, but I'll try to advertise this page on other wikis and in IRC.
Thanks for your work!
