Very interesting Tastylunch. I agree that it's a must for us to put in a mechanism for editors to help other editors find pages needing help.

The only problem I have with the way Wikipedia does it is that it is very binary. A page is either the default “good,” or tagged as “needs improvement” aka “not good.” This highlights only the bad content and leaves no middle ground. Instead of a tagging system, what do you and everyone else think about a star rating system?

Perhaps a five star system voted on by editors. We’d calculate the rating for each definition, and then create a page for each rating, displaying all the pages falling under it. Would this work better than a tagging system?

Thanks -- Jeremy
