Hi, we've entered December. Has my worry has come true, namely that interim discussion of localization would send the request to never-never land? It would be great if he.wikisource could be implemented :-)

In general, for those who are interested in the topic, information on the implementation of Flagged Reviews may be found at this page:


In my opinion, priority should be given to custom implementation at as many wikis as possible. Only in this way can its long-term effectiveness be tested. Great resources were rightfully invested in creating this extension, which is (in my opinion) an essential part of the functionality of a wiki environment. It is also, on a cultural level, a necessary tool for improving public attitudes about the reliability of wiki projects.

(The latter reason is, especially, the reason we want it on he.wikisource. Only with a function like this can we convince certain organizations to make their texts open-content, by guaranteeing that an authoritative version will appear on the wiki website, not subject at all to vandalism or to well-meaning deprecation.)

So let's get it implemented as widely as possible and track its effectiveness!
