The English-language Wikipedia has introduced a draft feature to involve authors active in the online encyclopedia. You can now save your incomplete articles as a draft. Thus, they remain invisible until the completion to search engines and users.
The draft feature can be used both by anonymous visitors and registered users on new articles. The design feature can be found via an advanced search.
Both are great ideas, especially if you are a Wikipedia editor. Good ideas come and go, but I always try to grab a domain name when I have a really good one. I use the domain search feature from hostingmanual.net.
The high traffic website had lack of productivity in recent years. The English-language Wikipedia has lost about a third of its regular active authors and editors in the past six years, according to a study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In addition, 80 percent of all new articles are deleted unpublished.
Reciprocal constructive criticism and joint work on designs should help increase new content generation. Also, the Wikimedia Foundation wants to avoid that community members abuse subpages of their profile as a testbed for new articles. The design feature should be further improved in the next few months.
It is likely that the function will also be introduced for other languages.
