Description Hires an editor 2007-09-17 15:24:35 UTC
I think a useful feature would be to have each section's size listed, instead of just the entire article, or the major parts of an article. Each individual section should have a size in KB listed. This would help in dealing with articles or sections that are too large. 

Where would it be listed? When clicking on "Edit", it would show up at the top of the page, and state the size of that section. I've seen when sections get to be too large that it lists the size, but it should do it no matter how big or small the section/subsectio/subsubsection is.

The message longpage-hint (added for bug 21911) is also shown for section, so this is already possible.
