Sounds good. The current "Contact Wikipedia" page on en:wp is a sort
of webpage "wizard" interface that steers you from page to page. I
suspect this is less than optimal.

I expect with a general "Report a problem with this article" page,
we'll get lots of editorial issues - "there's a spelling error" "you
deleted my band you suck" "your article shows your liberal bias" etc.
What's the proportion like? How do you deal with these?
