Page Action: YKTTW

Go To

What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

Issues with current YKTTW setup:
  • YKTTW is often overly-concerned with example-finding as opposed to description-drafting
  • There is a backlog in the current YKTTW system.
  • There isn't enough quality control over what comes out of YKTTW, leading to more work fixing them later.

These are the solution proposals for YKTTW. Please note that they are not mutually exclusive.
