As far as I know currently articles only evolve and don't get worse!
So linking to the current version shouldn't be a mistake. Spam and
keyboard tests are undone quickly by us Admins.
I'd suggest that changes in BPs should get an own recent changes so we
can control them easier.
I would personally prefer if a process was in place
that if a consensus
cannot be reached within a timeframe, the page is added to a list of
"Current negotiations", where again, for a period of 7 days, people would
be invited to suggest compromises and if that *also* fails, a vote is held
on the matter. This is to avoid problems like on the VfD page, where
sysops are given quite a lot of room for interpretation if a "consensus"
has been reached, and pages often linger without a decision for days or
A few days ago I suggested at the German a voting system, like 5 admins or
20 user yes-votes (for German WP) and the article goes from the candidate
list to the brilliant prose page. It could be automated and also the links
to BP could be marked with a star so the reader knows that this link is
BP. A new table for the BP would be necessary I think.

revision of the Wikipedia article they cite
If we introduce them, can we have <a href="#top3"> too?
