Mozilla docs have a special feature. Many articles are automatically marked 'Need changes' according to multiple factors. We can enhance it by introducing user feedback. This way, articles that have something wrong could be filtered, like pebbles through the sand... okay just ignore that... 

We'll have to think of many "factors" which will do it. Simple feedback mechanisms installed on the user-end, special training to moderators (maybe) are some I can think of. Like back at Mozilla, moderators keep marking and flagging posts that need changes and they also give a reason. Now of course, that's a browser website, so most stuff are like "update it after new bug release" or "add more details to this page" or "add a Linux screenshot of the remove history dialog box" etc. but I guess that's still a cool mechanism. In fact, I've edited many docs on the basis of the same Need Changes page at Mozilla.

I guess we need more discussion?
