While being interviewed for a Master's Thesis on Web 2.0 and Wikipedia, I was
informed of some of the general impressions from the other interview "victims".
One very general complaint (from, in general, inexperienced users) was the
editing interface. Many had the feeling of being taken from the very polished
front, with nice layout etc, to this editor window with strange codes and a tt
font. This was quoted as a major obstacle to new users. It would thus seem to be
a very useful improvement to have a very simple quasi-wysiwyg editor for new
users, and the "old" one for experienced users. The new editor would not need to
have many features; just a bold and italic button etc., like the old editor. The
important part is not a lot of functionality, but that the text is shown
approximately as it will look.
