I already have a bugzilla file on this but it was incorrectly filed, so refiling...
I have strong support from the community to add a simple English link on all articles on en wiki with a simple counter part.
Support is here:
(these links will die when archived, a permanent link is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Penubag/Simple_English#Simple_English)
Basically, my initial idea was to have a template on all en wiki pages saying that a simple conterpart existed 20% opposed, but when I showed them [[Image:Simple English Sidebar3.png]] this proposal, there were no opposes.
Although we have a simple english link on our en.wiki page, it is so hidden that no one can expect a little kid to find the link, [[Image:Simple English Sidebar3.png]] this simple proposal should fix the problem and the community agrees.
