July 2012 Modifications
You'll notice I've just had a review of these pages, using the upgraded Form for the purpose. The main aim was to distill what we have here into a concentrated form, one that will encourage new users to stick around. Several of the stubs got replaced by #REDIRECTs. I thought I'd summarise some of my thoughts here:
- A full WP:* page is not needed to use the WP+ software, a redirect is enough
- Where the WP:* page offers nothing much to the reader, a #REDIRECT is preferable
- The full WP:* page allows for a brief comment on both the WP and WS pages. I'm aiming to have comments in both fields.
- Use of icons is also recommended, though I am planning to upgrade these soon.
- Page titles must match WP titles, so I've moved a few pages to track WP title changes

- That's a whole lot of impressive work completed Robin. Much appreciated and, right now, no criticism or suggestions to make. I also agree all the above points. All-in-all the last few days work represent a big useability and general enhancement to the site.

Replacement Page example
I'm looking for an example of a solid replacement page. i.e. finished to a high standard and comprehensive, not just an adjunct to a WP page. I'll include it on http://www.wikipediaplus.org/wiki/WikipediaPlus_enabling_a_Website Any suggestions?
- I keep getting people telling me that Balfour Declaration of 1917 hits the spot. This is dangerous, since it can set me off into a frenzy of modifications and improvements, potentially rendering the thing worse and not better. The only part I'm convinced is good is the photograph.
- Of course, it's no good to you, because it's deliberately been written not to be comprehensive. However, I'm currently pleased with the wording included there which runs as follows: "This article is intended to be read as an adjunct to the Wikipedia version of the same thing, but without repetition of non-contentious material. See details of Wikipedia omissions and bias in the section below." I think it expresses one direction that editors can take but I'm more than a little nervous that it will fit some articles very well and others rather poorly. Toolbox 20:49, 5 April 2012 (IST)
I've put the default form tag back in because editing existing WP+ pages without it is problematic. It's there as an option so that the standard edit can be used if preferred. --Peter P (talk) 14:55, 12 May 2013 (IST)
