This proposed feature would enable editors to find out if there is new feedback about their articles and quickly access the feedback page from the article page.
See our feature requirements page for full details:
We propose adding a link below the article title if there are relevant suggestions that could be helpful to editors, as shown in this mockup:
This link would:
- Appear below the article title, after the words 'From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia'.
- Include an icon to make the link visually more prominent (e.g. 'talk' icon).
- Use the word "suggestions" (or 'reader suggestions', to make it more clear what content to expect).
- Display the number of relevant posts, to give editors an idea of how much we are going to help them.
- Only show this link to auto-confirmed editors, and only if there are relevant feedback posts
The counter would only display the number of 'relevant posts', to focus on quality and meet editor expectations (e.g.: posts that have been featured or found helpful).
Clicking on the link would take you to the feedback page, showing the 'Most Relevant' filter.
If editors do not wish to see this link, they would have the option to turn off Article feedback in their user preferences, so that the feedback page link would be hidden, along with not only would the feedback form. Clicking that checkbox again would turn Article feedback back on and display both the link and the feedback form.
To that end, we may want to use the same Feedback Button 'X' Close box we had used for the feedback link option A when we tested it last spring, as described at the end of this section:
