Proposal talk:Flag Featured article diffs

From Strategic Planning

Cool. I 'likes' it

That is interesting. I really think this is cool. Wikipedia articles tend to 'lose' their featured status. It would be a great idea to also link the formerly featured article star to that same revision where it got the status. As for the cost, I don't think it'd be too, too hard. Just linking it is fast enough. I would support this. Cheers, ESanchez013 19:06, 14 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, I'm very keen on this proposal too. I would like to see this proposal get to the next stage of strategy review and get lots of discussion and input in the best way to achieve this aim. It does sadden me when I see that articles have lost featured status. I think to myself "well, why don't they just revert it!" --Bodnotbod 18:42, 18 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]

I generally am against flagged revisions, but flagging featured articles is an intriguing idea. The difference between featured articles and the rest is that they have already been reviewed and have been OK'd as fine content. While most articles are in need of better editing and we should do all we can to encourage this, featured articles are of a different matter and all too often featured articles lose their status due to neglect. Flagging them would help prevent them from degrading and it would preserve valuable content. Themfromspace 03:36, 12 September 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 00:09, 3 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]
