Sample screenshot of a discussion page using LiquidThreads

I give a proposal to install the LiquidThreads discussion system on hindi wikipedia village pump, and if successful, we can use it on some other pages.

LiquidThreads replaces discussion pages with actual forums, giving the following benefits:

  • A clear, simplified post/reply workflow so new users can jump right into the discussion.
  • Simple management of threads, including automation of archival, refactoring, and other tasks currently undertaken by bots and humans.
  • A powerful, flexible notification system, allowing users to keep abreast of developments in areas in which they are interested, ranging from entire discussion pages to discussion fragments.
  • Support for following discussion pages with RSS feeds.
  • Flexible post ordering, allowing users to keep track of which threads on a talk page are dead, and which threads are active.
  • A modern, AJAX-based interface, that allows users to quickly post and reply to other posts, without clumsy page loading.
  • Automatic signatures.

Wiki discussion pages have some advantages over web and Usenet forums. They allow use of the entire wiki syntax - from images to wiki links to transclusion. It is possible to refactor entire discussion pages.

Web forums offer a number of advantages over the MediaWiki talk page model:

  • Threads can be displayed in different views: flat, nested, sorted by date, subject, etc.
  • The user only needs to click a "Reply" button or link in order to respond to a comment. Manual indentation is not required. Quotations from the source comment can be inserted automatically.
  • Comments are automatically signed and dated. Avatars are possible.
  • The user can watch individual threads or be notified about responses in threads.
  • Comments and threads can be displayed individually, without the surrounding page.
  • Old comments are archived automatically and invisibly, with permanent links easily available.
  • Search for author, subject, date, etc. is possible
  • Individual threads can have categories.
  • It is relatively easy to manage related discussions in a subject-specific forum, whereas MediaWiki talk pages always follow the "one discussion page per content page" model.

LiquidThreads aims to unite the advantages of both forum types, and to add some unique discussion features to boot.

Each thread can have a summary. The aim of this feature is to summarize a discussion up to some point, a summarization is not the end point of the discussion. In fact the summary should be continuously maintained while the discussion proceeds.
