  • I'm somewhat mixed about this. On the one hand, it's something that I see new editors in particular wanting quite a lot. On the other hand, this proposal doesn't really lay out concretely how it would work. Would it be another button in the edit window alongside the preview button? Who would provide the feedback? What would happen if the page changed in the meantime? Etc. I'd want to see this fleshed out more before supporting. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 05:49, 9 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • I think the Talk page exists for this reason. When an editor is not confident enough to revise the article, changes are proposed and discussed there. Anyway, I don't think that content the editor is uncertain about should be published immediately in the article. Lion-hearted85 (talk) 11:19, 9 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • You select instead of publish button, the "request feedback" button. The changes would be added as a section in the talk page with a {{feedback requested}} template in the beginning of the section.--BoldLuis (talk) 14:57, 11 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • Are these proposals – when developed – globally enabled on all wikis? I feel like this specific proposal would work for some wikis but in smaller Wikipedias like rowiki the feedback would just clutter talk pages without getting any attention from anyone.
