Description Mark Pellegrini 2006-03-19 06:47:55 UTC
(Originally posted to slashdot -
http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=178045&cid=14767973 after which I emailed
Jimbo and he seemed to think it was a good idea, so I'm posting it here) 

I propose giving admins a "Copy to stable" button for each article. When
pressed, it copies the article to http://en.wikipedia.org/stable/Article_name.
The stable wikipedia would not be directly editable, but could only be changed
by clicking the "Copy to stable" button. This would prevent stable from becoming
a true fork.

Alternatively, it could be set it up so that an article would not be copied to
stable until a certain number of admins (say, 3) had marked it as stable.
