This tool shows same articles and same ratings during last four or five days. I noticed this on Serbian Wikipedia.

How do I change Text in Article Feedback?

2 (talkcontribs)

Hi, I was asked by a wiki site owner to change the text in his article feedback. By default the article feedback shows the text headings: Page Trustworthy Objective Complete Well-written but the wiki site owner wants different text than these. I searched the ArticleFeedback php files but couldn't find anywhere to edit these. Is this done through toolserver or the dashboard?? Please advise because the instructions at are not clear on this. If you know how to do this, please reply with detailed instructions. Thank you. (talkcontribs)

Edit the values in ArticleFeedback.i18n.php.

The "Rate This Page" box is too big. Maybe:

  • have it collapsed and/or across the width of page rather than what seem to be a fixed 50% width
  • it should be after categories since it is not article content
  • makes article look silly if it is a stub and there are three templates, e.g. w:Hudson and Halls
  • maybe it should be a new tag on the top of the page (like the talk, history etc tags)

After spending a lot of time browsing as a logged off reader rather than logged in editor the "Rate This Page" box became a real annoyance.

AFT Dashboard Rating result on custom page

Packet8i (talkcontribs)

I searched all over but couldn't find the way to pull the results of "Trustworthy, Objective, Complete, Well-written" for a specific article to my page. In short i want to display AFT Dashboard (Special:ArticleFeedback) with added parameters of my own on page other than Special page.

Name Website URL Content Rating Reviews
Trustworthy Objective Complete
Website Name

how can i achieve the above? Thanks

There's probably not much point, since these categories of ratings are scheduled to go away soon, when version 5 is rolled out. Before long, no articles will be rated for being trustworthy, objective, complete, or well-written.

Thanks WhatamIdoing for the clarification. (talkcontribs)

Your project talks about sourcing, completeness, neutrality, and readability. I would like to suggest, though, that what Wikipedia really needs is a simple mechanism by which readers, who may not be editors in the Wikipedia sense of the term, can bring minors errors to the attention of the editors. As an example -- unfortunately, I can no longer find it -- I recently came across an imcomplete sentence. I would have liked to have brought it to someone's attention, but I had no idea how to do that.

You can do that in the same way as you were able to post your message above. Unless the page has been protected against vandalism, all non registered users are able to edit the encyclopedia, There is an 'Edit' tab on the top of every page. When clicked, it opens the page in edit mode where the raw source can be modified or expanded. It is highly recommended to click the 'Show preview' button to review he proposed change(s) before clicking the 'Save page' button'.

A sliding scale for "I am highly knowledgeable"

John of Reading (talkcontribs)

Dear Sirs, Presently there is an option to "rate this page". One of the options is "I am highly knowledgeable about this topic (optional)". I would like that you change the tick box into a 5 star rating as I am sometimes a (very) little knowledgeable on the subject, sometimes highly. Thank you. Ton Jeursen.

hoi, i'm actually really surprised that an otherwise well-designed extension is integrated so badly into articles. just look at w:en:1938_in_Norway ... that's not exactly well-positioned if you ask me.

This is a known issue (and an old one =( ).

Little mistake in es:WP statistical sheet

Andreateletrabajo (talkcontribs)

In "Note" says: "Las páginas con las calificaciones más altas y más bajas: artpiculos..."

Should be: "Las páginas con las calificaciones más altas y más bajas: artículos..." I´m talking about this page. Thanks.

"Huge number" bug with few votes?

The359 (talkcontribs)

I noticed in w:en:Scott Tucker (racing driver) that the Objective rating for the article is currently pegged at 715827884.3 after 9 votes. How did someone get a vote in the millions in? The359 09:30, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

This seems to be another instance of bug #30227, so I reopened it.

Is there a way to see a graph of the number of votes cast per page (binned by say week) view against time since the tool launched? I'm concerned that it's become "part of the background" and invisible to editors. Is it would be nice to quantify if this tool has been a success or not in terms of usage.

Steven (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I agree that a simple chart of the number of votes and unique voters over time would be useful. Sort of like pageviews and unique visitors are to site stats.

Anyone? Anyone?
