A gadget for logged-in users to encourage editing that replaces the front page (or is a special page) with a dashboard with various editing focused features like:
*Recently viewed articles (like mobile has- the problem is that extensive editing on mobile is difficult. There are often pages I read on mobile so syncing with mobile history would be AWESOME but I think that would be pretty hard to do within the confines of opw/gsoc) (Is this available anywhere? Otherwise maybe we would need access to DB to store this? Is this stored in cookies maybe, or hijack browser history)
*Articles you've recently edited ( Cleaner version of contributions; remove duplicate articles, i.e. if 5 edits were made to Elephant, only show Elephant once.)
*A Task Queue- for making deliberate commitments to work on particular articles, and prioritising them. (Use watchlist for this, at least in interrum? Need access to DB for ordering tasks and/or adding notes about what needs to be done which would necessitate converting it to an extension.)
