There was discussion here recently about getting
attribution into the data. I remain opposed to the idea until we have
logins, but should that happen, I'd be all for it also showing up on
the page itself, as Wikitravel does it. Example:
Scroll down to the page footer to see what I mean.
I agree that this would be nice but I'd be interested on your
for only wanting it after logins are implemented.
I suspect because without true logins (via OpenID or something) the
attribution is meaningless. Anybody can put anything into the "Who am
I" page and credit their edits to whomever they please. At least with
OpenID or some form of login system you can only credit to accounts
you've authorized against.
But the attribution already happens, on the page history. Putting
somewhere more useful doesn't fundamentally change anything. I really
think you're overstating the importance of strong login credentials.
