  • Volunteer There is an implementation available at and maybe it could be checked what WikiHow is using. I endorse this idea and would be glad to help out. The difficulty is in how to moderate the content but I believe this difficulty may also be overcome if there is a plan how to do it. For example on pages with a huge number of visitors the feedback form may be shown more prominently to 1 user out of 100 while the rest only see a smaller link. And at smaller wikis the feedback form could be shown prominently to every visitor because there is not so many of them.

Perhaps the Article Feedback v5 extension may be installed on any wiki provided local consensus is achieved. Gryllida 01:11, 26 July 2018 (UTC)


  •   Support However, I again see this as a possible application of my EPR system. In I actually suggested tweaking the display of Wikipedia articles to reflect the EPR of the contributors. Another way to do it might be with color, with the strongest black when the sources have high EPR and shading to weaker colors if the source has a more dubious reputation. Perhaps even a cautionary orange for someone with multiple NPV violations, or red for someone who has had many contributions reverted for negative accuracy. Your idea actually seems to be focused on a dimension of longevity, which is actually important, though I'm not sure how to consider it within the Wikipedia context. In more general and open-ended discussion forums, I have often wished there were a maturity filter to block the fresh sock puppets. Shanen (talk) 22:49, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
