* Get readers interacting on wikipedia with a very simple interface. Helps them understand that the article is edited by real people. Help editors see the effects of their work.
* https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Author_Thanks I'll also put it on phab
* Concern about privacy, too many notifications. Who gets the thanks? If I change a comma to a semi-colon, do I get to share in the thanks with the people who made more substantial contributions? Should I be getting thanks for articles I wrote in 2007, like a moral residual of some kind?
** Maybe the last 5 editors to the article (excluding bots/IPs, excluding reverts, maybe a byte change minimum), but it would also be cool to see an article you worked on years ago is still being read and appreciated
*** What if the last 5 (or any other amount) are just reverts and readds of useless content (still when they aren't from IP's)? Maybe it should be more like a "more than 5% of meaningful bytes of the page"?
** Or do something like: "10 people have seen the article since you last edited it", "Readership has increased with 20% after your edits" But this doesn't involve readers interacting
