Help pages[edit]

I hear on [1] that this is meant as help page. Unless it's a FAQ for en.wiki (which it seems to be), it should be placed on mw: so that all wikis can benefit from it: if not now, when AFT will no longer be an en.wiki-specific tool. Thanks, Nemo 08:04, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

It's pretty much an enwiki-specific thing. Sticking it on MediaWiki would be putting it somewhere where no wiki can easily access it - and since it's not exactly internationalised, language-wise, not necessarily help :). Once internationalisation is done with and we look at porting, we'll start having a conversation about how to handle documentation across wikis. Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 14:25, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

Example needs updating[edit]

The example under “What is the feedback page?” needs to be changed: currently it points to Talk:San Francisco, but there is not actually any Feedback there.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 22:02, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

Can you not see anything here? :S. Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 00:22, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
Yes, thanks, but the link in the help article is to the Talk page, where there doesn’t appear to be any link like the one you provided.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 18:20, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
It seems this is just a problem with my old Web browser; I recently had the opportunity to use a newer system and the Feedback link appeared. Unfortunately my own OS (Apple’s “Panther”) doesn’t seem to support any browser modern enough to show it.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 22:44, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Funny statistics[edit]

Feedback on Debye model states that there are

 5 posts about this page

while there are only 4 posts. It states further that

 75% found what they were looking for

while 50% would be correct. --Rainald62 (talk) 21:37, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

How can I supress this message box[edit]

I've bored 5 times with this message box on Great Kills (Staten Island Railway station). Please help me from this boring message. The most important information for me is how I can supress this boring messages!!!Suzukitaro (talk) 14:35, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Unresolved filter.[edit]

Often when I am looking at the feedback for my watch-list, I am looking for what things need to be improved on those pages. Items that have already been resolved are not that useful in that regard. I would like a new filter to be added to the existing list called "Unresolved" that would show all items except the items marked as resolved. Having a filter that does not show items marked as Resolved or Abusive posts would also be quite useful; perhaps called "Actionable". Nutster (talk) 05:47, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Can I see all reviews that I have made?[edit]

Please help me with the question. Thanks, New worl (talk) 14:42, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

They should live here :). Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 15:11, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Article feedback form on non-article pages[edit]

Should the 'Wikipedia would like to hear what you think of this article' box be on non-article pages such as Wikipedia:Article wizard, Wikipedia:Who writes Wikipedia, and others? Pseudonymous Rex (talk) 20:56, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

At the moment it's opt-in; if you're willing to triage the feedback for a page, you can stick it wherever you want :). Having said that I'm not entirely sure if it's capable of being displayed on pages in non-article namespaces. I would note that, in my experience, the feedback from help pages isn't that helpful :/. Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 16:41, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

I wasn't clear. It does (or did, in the case of Wikipedia:Article wizard - another user has since listed it in the feedback blacklist category) appear on those pages. I saw feedback left for those pages on the main feedback feed, and comments left for those pages really aren't helpful; users seemed more confused. Pseudonymous Rex (talk) 23:55, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Ah. Then the answer is; theoretically, yes, but if nobody's triaging the feedback.... Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 01:36, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

How do I put this in articles I work on????[edit]

I'm sorry, but I've been looking through the pages for 20 minutes and I can't find how to put the feedback tool into pages I've been writing. Can someone leave a message on my talk page telling me how to do this? Thanks in advance! Wikidea 21:12, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Some articles show 31 reader comments but no way to add a 32nd[edit]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_language says "31 reader comments" but then there is no way for a user to add his comment. Jidanni (talk) 02:50, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
