Talk Feature

Could someone explain the Talk feature of the wiki to me? I don't understand.

Answer

The Talk Feature of the wiki (also called Discussion) is a messageboard style place where the page can be 'talked' about. You can get to it by clicking on the 'discussion' tab at the top of the page. The primary benefit of this is to have a place to communicate ideas about the page without editing the page itself. An example would be a suggestion to rename a page and see the response of other users to the idea. More information about the talk feature can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Talk_page.
