I created my Wikipedia user account 21 June 2006. Currently, I do most of my edits in the Swedish edition.
My views on Wikipedia
One of the major problems I have with the stub messages are that they are way too integrated with the rest of the article text. Thus, they are not separated enough to clearly be viewed as meta-information. For example, they are included before categories, and retained in the printable version. (The second problem with stub messages are that they are stating the obvious - hey, this is a wiki - and thus makes the reading rather noisy.) --Patrik Hägglund 15:51, 15 July 2006 (UTC)
- Comment I view this as a MediaWiki problem. Meta-information such as stub messages, this type of categories, and the "citation needed" note, should be entered as meta-information to the articles. When that distinction is made, stub messages and this type of categories may end up in the sidebar, and the "citation needed" note may only be viewed by turning it on in your personal preferences. When that isn't implemented yet... I don't know. Patrik Hägglund 08:56, 16 July 2006 (UTC)
