Lately I observed that more and more people use the possibility to discuss the content of articles in the articles discussion page in the Developers Wiki if they have questions that require feedback. Replies are prepended with ‘:’, ‘::’ and so on (indentation), which builds up threads. Also very good. The only concept that many people have been missing so far is how to Sign Off a comment. Many people just write their own nick behind it, so even write something like [[User:Danimo|Danimo]]. But of course there is also the lazy folks’ approach to things: Just write
This will automatically be substituted with something like
--Danimo 20:48, 3 January 2007 (CET)
as soon as you hit “Save”. This way messages in threads can even easily be identified by timestamp. This one and more useful tricks can be found in the Wikipedia Cheatsheet, which is also available as PDF for printing.
