I think the new beta takes care of this. -- 13:02, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

The concern over ease of editing is well known and recognized. Subsidized with a specific grant a usability initiative has started. Please have a look there. Dedalus 14:10, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

I just suggested, on the usability prototype talk page, making "Save Page", "Show Preview" and "Show Changes" buttons (plus a "Show Code") as a tabs near the edit toolbar; "Show Preview" switches to a Preview view of your changes. If the Preview itself was editable, it would make changes easier for newbies, while preserving the traditional edit-box code view for experienced editors. Does anyone, including the original proposer, object if I hijack this page rather than start yet another nearly-identical proposal? -- (PaulxSA) 08:31, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Er zijn teveel mogelijkheden om een pagina vorm te geven. Er zijn speciale soorten opmaak voor speciale pagina's. De mogelijkheden van de techniek hoeven niet allemaal gebruikt te worden. Als je niet elke week een stukje schrijft in wiki dan raak je snel de weg kwijt. Keep It Super Simple. 21:10, 30 September 2009 (UTC)


Whether Microsoft Word is an application that is easy to use will depend on what one is used to and what one wants to do. Personally I regard Microsoft Word as an evil to be endured. I have long since accepted that when using Microsoft Word a lot of time has to be spent fighting the application. Half the things I want to do with text I cannot do in Word. So as far as I am concerned: please don't make Wikipedia more like Word. - Brya 16:26, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

I agree with Brya. But I think can be useful for someone to have a new interface Word-like.
Can be useful for users to "switch" among the two interfaces (wiki and Word-like) simply clicking an icon. --Aushulz 01:59, 16 December 2009 (UTC)


Some proposals will have massive impact on end-users, including non-editors. Some will have minimal impact. What will be the impact of this proposal on our end-users? -- Philippe 00:08, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
