Comments are useful for easy reviews of a business, service, places and other things. Comments differ from Talk Pages in that they are presented at the end of the article itself.
are opinions, and should be signed
should be respectful of other community members
You can append a comments box to the end of the page using [[Comments]]. Typing into this magic box and pressing "Add Comment" makes your comment appear at the bottom of the page — and automatically dates and signs your comment with your name. See Help with Macros for more information.
You can also chose an alternative text by doing this: [[Comments(Hey dude, leave a comment!)]].
Note: Make sure it's at the very bottom of the page, because when you enter text into the comment box it will simply append it to the very bottom of the page. It's exactly the same as making a usual edit of the page, except the time and your user name will be appended for you. How awesome is that!
Note: You must be logged in to add comments

It works. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards
2008-09-08 16:07:50 I love the comment boxes, but is there a way for them to display new messages at the top, instead of at the bottom? It'd be nice to see new messages first than have to scroll all the way to the bottom to see them. Thx. —ensomnea
2008-09-08 17:25:53 that would be nice. —DavidPoole
2008-09-08 17:58:56 It is more complicated to put some text in the middle of some other text than to append it at the end. I think this is fine the way it is, I have a key on my keyboard called "End" that works very well. —NickSchmalenberger
2008-12-06 22:19:02 I'm not sure where to ask this. The Comment feature seems like an obvious thing to use on Talk pages, given the auto signature and date. So I created Templates/Talk, which shows up nicely enough in All Pages, but not as an option when I click on a Talk icon. What gives?
Talk pages are created with a stock template that can't be edited. That's a good point, however... it should be able to be edited, especially for non-English wikis. Thanks for pointing it out, it's just something that has never really come up before. (Bug filed) —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards
*Thanks for the response. If it turns out there's a good reason they're not editable, I'd be happy if the template just contained the Comments call, which would seem like an obvious thing to put on a Talk page. It's odd that there's a stock template, 'cause when you are the first to click Talk on a page, it offers you a choice of existing templates. You'd think...
*One other thing— I'm having some weird things happening at Help, namely that something is appending "Front_Page" in front of each link. In other words, when I mouse over the link to Help with Editing (or any other link on the page), the text showing at the bottom of the browser reads "http://wikispot.org/Front_PageHelp with Editing" rather than "http://wikispot.org/Help with Editing". The problem persists through a reboot, so I'm truly perplexed. Any ideas? Any other forum I should take this to? I'm about ready to copy the help pages to my wiki, as the simplest fix. TIA, ~~~~
Ah! You do not need to add InterWiki links to the InterWiki Map if they are Wiki Spot wikis... they are already automatically added. When you added those links, you included the Front_Page part, which cause the problem. I just deleted both mappings because you don't need them, and the links now work for Help. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards
I never would have imagined that could be the cause! Many thanks! —Mwanner
2010-12-02 12:02:48 Does anyone remember when the Wooz in Vacaville closed down? The other day I came across some souvenirs I got from the Wooz just before it closed and wondered how old they were. Thanks —JaneBraddock
You probably wanted to post this to the wiki about vacaville. This is the global hub of communities. For instance, I'm in Nashville. -jw

2013-09-19 22:18:15 Please put a comment box on the talk pages. Why can't everyone edit the talk pages? It'd be great if you commented on my page about this. —MythrilDawnseeker
