Article notations?

Recommended Posts

Is this possible? Is it actually a good idea? I don't know but I'd like to get some discussion going and find out. The idea is exactly what the thread title says - giving people the ability to annotate articles in the body itself. Mainly the members who have worked up to being able to peer-review articles. The reason is that you can quote all you want from the article in the comments and provide corrections there, but that can be a long way down the page and possibly on another page of comments entirely. It would be way better IMO if issues with an article can be pointed out at the precise location of the problem mainly for readers to be able to see upfront. Not sure if there is even any good tech out there and if so, if it would be compatible with our system. Having to roll our own, at this time, would probably be prohibitive despite the usefulness.

 

Thoughts?

Yes. This or something like this. Just basic functionality of being able to place comments or corrections straight into the article.The only thing I see missing when viewing the demo of the above annotator is the ability to report annotations. That would be a must - or just notifications to me of new annotations so they can be reviewed (not approved, just looked over to ensure they are relevant and don't just mar the content)
