  • Reply to specific comments within a discussion without changing the state of the page
  • Draft a reply in a text field using wikitext while being able to see the comment(s) I am replying to
  • Discard a reply without publish it
  • Preview how my reply will appear once it's posted to the talk page
  • Have my edit summary created automatically
  • Have my reply indented/outdented to the proper depth automatically
  • Know my comment was posted successfully
  • Have the time and date of my post, a link to my user page and a link to my talk page included with my reply automatically
  • See the date and time a comment was made, in my local timezone and preferred date format
  • Attempt to post a comment with notation for signing my name or indenting/outdenting my comment without breaking the experience


  • Verify the components listed in the "Testing details" section above work properly
