IWBNI we could have a to do list where people could make suggestions of things that need to be done to improve articles. Ideally, there would be one for each article and it would be accessible from every articles page (much like the talk page, but not the talk page.) I reckon it wouild impact the people who look at the guides before going to the destination and they would see that we need information on a certain thing (a brief description on hotel x or bar y etc) and when that person can, they could add the required info into the article. This is definately not to be another COTW, because it wouldn't concentrate on fine tuning articles by MoS editing and stuff like that, but it would seek more general info on places. Also it would be more of a long termist project, which wouldn't necessarily get results straight off. However, I think it would be a very useful way of turning hits into edits and thats what we want to be doing! What do people think? Also, I'm not convinced I've spelt out my big plan properly here, so I'll try and answer any questions people have before we give it a big thumbs up or thumbs down!!! -- Tim 14:14, 9 August 2006 (EDT)

In my belief it such lists can be created without any improvements in software. I am discussing quite similar idea here: en:Requests for information in article content. I would love to hear what you think. --DenisYurkin 17:59, 25 November 2006 (EST)
So, I was just marking up a page on en:, and I thought about this tech request. I wonder if we could do it just having a sub-section of the talk page en:Talk:Paris#TODO, or even a talk sub-page en:Talk:Paris/TODO. I'd like to record information about editorial changes that need to be done to the page, and maybe we could have different sub-sections for research, formatting, verification, etc. --Evan 10:37, 8 January 2007 (EST)

Here's how it works now for me already:
