Article Feedback Tool update
Hey Nczempin. I'm contacting you because you're involved in the Article Feedback Tool in some way, either as a previous newsletter recipient or as an active user of the system. As you might have heard, a user recently anonymously disabled the feedback tool on 2,000 pages. We were unable to track or prevent this due to the lack of logging feature in AFT5. We're deeply sorry for this, as we know that quite a few users found the software very useful, and were using it on their articles.
We've now re-released the software, with the addition of a logging feature and restrictions on the ability to disable. Obviously, we're not going to automatically re-enable it on each article—we don't want to create a situation where it was enabled by users who have now moved on, and feedback would sit there unattended—but if you're interested in enabling it for your articles, it's pretty simple to do. Just go to the article you want to enable it on, click the "request feedback" link in the toolbox in the sidebar, and AFT5 will be enabled for that article.
Again, we're very sorry about this issue; hopefully it'll be smooth sailing after this :). If you have any questions, just drop them at the talkpage. Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) 21:47, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
Hi Ncz - I was just by the Brian Reynolds (game designer) page removing some vandalism and saw you'd added a couple of OR tags. How would you reconcile that with the statement right at the top of the main Civ2 article (Civilization_2) about Meier's non-involvement. Also the MobyGames credits are here - . I'm not an expert on OR but I was surprised you called attention here when the main Civ2 article was so definitive. Thx 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:56, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
- Well, for starters, have you read the OR article that the tag links to? If the same statement is made in another article but not tagged, feel free to tag it. "x implies y" and a claim "z clearly borrows.." are classic examples of OR (and OR synthesis). I cannot explain it all here, we have pages. Briefly: Whether Credits imply something is a matter of opinion; if a reliable source (preferably several) has stated that opinion, it is not OR, if Wikipedia states it, it is. --Nczempin (talk) 22:08, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
- I have absolutely no idea. --Nczempin (talk) 17:18, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
