Site Specific Policies

I think it's a bad idea for feature requests to include proposed element names in the page title. There's always significant discussion about appropriate element names for features, so the proposal should focus on the problem to be solved, rather than the specific solution. e.g. instead of proposing a <footnote> element, propose a way to mark up footnotes.

It seems that while you were writing this, in that spirit I created the Feature Proposals page some minutes ago. --Michel Fortin 21:05, 15 Nov 2006 (PST)

I also don't think feature requests should have to go into the User: or Group Proposal: space. I think all feature requests, regardless of who proposes it, should go under a common name like Feature:. e.g. Feature:Footnotes Lachlan Hunt 20:58, 15 Nov 2006 (PST)

I completely agree, that's exactly what I've made with the Feature Proposals page. --Michel Fortin 21:05, 15 Nov 2006 (PST)
Replying to myself, I don't think there would be any problem removing that as Matthew Raymond seems to have abandoned the wiki as it was in April 2005. It seems it was just an idea that was never really used, until now. (There was no other registered user than Matthew before I register a few hours ago.) --Michel Fortin 21:14, 15 Nov 2006 (PST)
