At least for heavy edited pages this would be positive. --Goldzahn 02:14, 16 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Internet traffic?

In general the proposal seems to be an interesting idea, that certainly deserves a continuous technical evaluation in order to take advantage of the best of the collaborative software that is developed. One possible pitfall is the Internet traffic needed for coordinating the edits of Wikipedia interactively that way, it might be lower than the current "batch oriented traffic" it might be higher, depending on where data are cached. As I understand it the Waves are designed for small groups coordinated edits, then it must be ascertained that this is practically also the case when editing articles on Wikipedia, otherwise the Internet traffic might unexpectedly rush and crash the Waves for a number of surprised collaborators here and there, maybe. Some ethernet communications expertice is also needed, otherwise I generally approve of the proposal. Rursus 19:11, 18 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]


Some proposals will have massive impact on end-users, including non-editors. Some will have minimal impact. What will be the impact of this proposal on our end-users? -- Philippe 00:06, 3 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]
