A few months ago I created "Template:Contribute" at
wikimediafoundation.org.[1] It displays above the edit window whenever a
logged out user presses the "Contribute" (previously "Edit") tab.

There were some concerns that this message was still too obscure, so I've
now implemented a "namespace notice" via a MediaWiki gadget. When viewing
any page in the Talk namespace, you'll now see the contents of
"Template:Contribute" below the page title. The relevant code can be found
