Is this about design of software, design of clothing, design of buildings, or what? And why the capital letter "D" in "Design", rather than lower-case? Michael Hardy 18:25, 7 Sep 2004 (UTC)
I moved the above comment here from the main article. I hope I answered the question with the small rewrite I did. Actually I think it could apply to design of anything, since it's more of a general procedure or principle to involve the user.
I did the rewrite because it was almost word for word from the website I added as an External link, the very first Google hit. This looks like an excellent topic, and this stub should be a good start. I left the capital in Design for now because it was that way on the web site, although that may be just because it was title case. Spalding 22:10, Sep 14, 2004 (UTC)

Jargon sentence cut[edit]

Jargon sentence cut from article: "Participatory design is often associated with emancipation of end-users." Jargon-y enough to make it vacuous. If someone has something to say here, say it clearly. - Jmabel | Talk 01:29, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

If you read paper about the topic, that's the wording used. - Pedro — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:36, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Merge with User-design[edit]

Participatory design seems to be a common industry term. I haven't heard of User-design. The hyphen format doesn't make a whole lot of sense either. The [google results] are low compared to part. design and the results are for the non-hyphenated term. Clubmarx | Talk 17:59, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Single-source and Inline-cites-needed tags[edit]

I'm assuming these tags are just for the non-"Scandinavia" sections? There seems to be plenty of sources and inline citations, just not really anywhere other than the "in Scandinavia" part.... (That section's information needs some integration into the rest of the article, too, as I'm sure it's not so useful to just talk about Scandinavian research contexts.) —AySz88\^-^ 03:31, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

thanks a good point. But please note that this approach to design started in Scandinavia - as described in the referred papers. -A, Dec 1, 2010 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:01, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
