When adding tags, message for creator should also be posted to article talk page
Open, Needs TriagePublicFeature


Value proposition

When tagging an article with Page Curation, you have the option to 'add a message to creator'. 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?
    • Revision tag: pagetriage (see T226789)
