Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down[edit | edit source]

Wiki readers now have the ability to rate articles a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down."  This feature is called the Wiki Page rating widget.

  • position of "thumbs" on page
  • how to locate high-scoring pages
  • what to do about low-scoring pages

Comments about the wiki page rating widget can be found in the forum thread. Lise 02:32, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Project "Show and Tell"[edit | edit source]

One of the things we discussed in an earlier meeting is the possibility of using this meeting to share ideas and best practices.  If you'd like to share a page that you're working on (because it's a great page, or because it's a page that has challenges), add the link to the list, along with your user name or name.
