Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

Polish Wikipedia has a unique feature to report a problem with an article - always present in the sidebar for the anonymous users, it enables people unfamiliar with Wikipedia to report an error, omission or other problem with the article they are currently reading. This feature has created an enormous amount of feedback to the editors. Many Wikipedia editors dedicated their effort to handle reports provided by this feature.

I would like to demonstrate this feature as well as to propose a short discussion on this approach vs. Article Feedback Tool as currently deployed on other wikis (including the English Wikipedia).

This presentation can be made very short - technically this feature is very simple. However, I hope it might provoke an interesting discussion among the participants, hopefully about future direction of mw:Extension:Moodbar and mw:Article feedback features.

  1. I would especially be interested in a comparison with the Article Feedback Tool; having some numbers or graphs would be lovely. odder (talk) 00:48, 19 March 2012 (UTC)[reply]
