Description M. Creidieki Crouch 2005-11-25 18:46:35 UTC
At the moment, there's no clear way for (clueless) users to provide feedback on Special Pages.  
These are the only pages on the site that don't have a tab at the top of the page for discussion or 
suggestions.  Could a "Feedback" or "Discussion" tab be added to the top of all pages in the 
Special namespace, so that users can make suggestions?

I don't know whether it would be better to link this tab to a "Special Talk" page, or to the 
Village Pump, or what.  Could this be configurable per-wiki?

I've written an extension to do this, Special_talk.php in the extensions module

Marking this as FIXED in CVS HEAD.

Well, anything like this should be off by default, as small wikis
"didn't write, and maybe aren't even aware of" many special pages'
existence. "Therefore the user with a comment would be better off
hitting the "Made by MediaWiki" logo", to find the real perpetrators...
