- This idea seems to combine (really well) the vote widget & feedback
form, so I won't submit email re the vote widget.
- What kind of feedback does the user get after submitting?
- It would be interesting to compare vote rating of pages to visitor
stats. 
- Could we consider displaying pages to users in order of their vote
rating, eg, in a similar box in the side nav?

Hi Najib,

Let's give it a try. I've seen what I'd call 'serious' Web sites doing
it. It's big advantage is that it is very easy for the user to use. I
expect very few people to take the time to write comments.  If it
doesn't work, we can reconsider later.
