Feedback for creator should also be posted to article talk page
Open, NormalPublic5 Story Points


Value proposition

When tagging an article with Page Curation, you have the option to 'add a message to creator'. It has been suggested that these messages should also be added to the talk page in a new section. This would ensure that reviewers are able to see context for tags present on the page and also be able to follow-up on comments made by past reviewers.


There is a possible risk of the conversation being fragmented because of the same message being in two places instead of one. The reviewers agree on this not being a big problem.

Required changes:

  • Change Add a message for the creator (optional): to instead be Add a message for the creator. This message will also be posted to the article talk page.
  • Replace the placeholder in the input box with: Write a helpful note for $username and future reviewers.
  • When a user adds a comment in the input box and submits it, the message is posted to both the creator's talk page and the article's talk page.
  • For the article talk page message:
    • Section heading: Feedback from New Page review process
    • Message: I left the following feedback for the creator/future reviewers while reviewing this article: $message. -- Signed by $reviewer
    • Question: Can this be a community-controlled template?
  • If a new reviewer comes along and leaves another message, the message gets added to the same section if the section already exists. Otherwise a new section is created.

@Barkeep49 @Insertcleverphrasehere It would be helpful if you could glance at the task description and verify if it fulfills what was requested. Thank you!

@Niharika that seems to capture what was requested from my perspective but ICPH did a lot more on that front and so I would defer to him should he say differently.
