Hi Elizabeth,

As discussed in our today's meeting, and emailed to you on April 7, I would like to propose some copy tweaks to make the Article Feedback Activity Log a bit more readable by casual users:

Fabrice Florin (talk | contribs) hid feedback post #4654 on the Mitt Romney page: "I am hiding this post because the user is SHOUTING opinions and not making any sense. Though this quote is particularly humorous: WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE HIPPOCRATIC OAT?" - 19:12, 6 April 2012

The pseudo-code for this request would look like this:

<user name> (<talk> | <contribs>) <action taken> <feedback post #[post ID]> on the <article name> page: <i>"<note>" - <date></i>

INSTEAD OF:

<date> <user name> (talk) hid the feedback <permalink>: <note>

Here is how it looks now on production:

(del/undel) 19:12, 6 April 2012 Fabrice Florin (talk | contribs) hid Special:ArticleFeedbackv5/Mitt Romney/4654 (I am hiding this post because the user is SHOUTING opinions and not making any sense. Though this quote is particularly humorous: WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE HIPPOCRATIC OAT?)

I don't know if these proposed tweaks are feasible or not, but they do not add or remove new functionality, to my knowledge, only reposition the links. The most important change in my view is to replace this long URL: Special:ArticleFeedbackv5/Mitt Romney/4654 … with something that common mortals can easily understand.

If this works for you, I can update column D of the Google requirements page for the rest of the actions, to conform with this proposed new format.

Thanks,

Fabrice
