From MIKE2.0 Methodology
Talk Pages provide a dicussion forum that is specific to an article. For guidelines on using Talk Pages, refer to the detailed instructions on Talk Pages on Wikipedia
In terms of the MIKE2.0 Methodology, there are 3 key issues related to the use of Talk Pages.
- Peer Reviews are initiated through Talk Pages. When an author want to conduct a Peer Review, they should place the Template:Peer review into an article's Talk Page using the following text: [[MIKE2 Peer Review }]]
- Talk Pages allow for forum discussions to take place on Protected Content. This means that all Contributors can provide feedback on any article. These forum discussions are the key mechanism for recommending changes that will go into each Release Cycle.
- Dicussions can take place at an point in the lifecyle of an article and should be specific to release recommendations or as part of a peer review.
Because some MIKE2.0 follows a release cycle for articles that are part of the Core MIKE2.0 Methodology, the use of Talk Pages is arguably even more important than on Wikipedia.
