I believe this controls the text in the "add new section" tab on talk pages. If so, I would like it changed to "leave a comment", and have proposed this on the Village Pump. — Omegatron 16:22, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Not only talk pages, also non-talk pages that contain the magic word __NEWSECTIONLINK__. Not all of them are pages that ask for "comments", I think. It could be useful for article and user talk pages, though. Kusma (talk) 07:39, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
See the discussion at Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals)/Archive AN#Change "+" tab to "leave a comment". –Pomte 23:48, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
I made the change. As I said in my edit summary, this proposal's been on WP:VPR for nearly a month with a slight plurality support.
This is NOT necessarily final, but should encourage much more discussion and a global consensus instead of a local consensus. If it's causing problems on pages that transclude this message (besides the tabs), feel free to revert it. Otherwise please leave it up so people can see it, decide whether they like the change or not, and reach a good consensus on whether it should be kept.
The main rationales cited for this change are because the section edit links and new section links are used much more often than the link for editing the entire talk page. We want to maximize obviousness for newcomers, so that they can start new topics when they see problems with articles and aren't daunted by a page full of wiki syntax, etc. Of course other reasons were brought up in the discussion, for or against. — Omegatron 06:07, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
I do not mind either way but it should be lowercase "Leave a comment" -> "leave a comment". -- Cat chi? 14:03, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
Er, why? All of the tab contents are uppercase. Kusma (talk) 14:10, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
The tab has to be initial-capitals for the benefit of skins other than Monobook; Monobook forces the tab name to lowercase, but the other skins don't. --ais523 18:19, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
Yes, it needs to be capitalized. If you view the page without CSS, you'll see that they're all capitalized. The monobook skin's CSS forces it to lowercase. — Omegatron 11:28, 14 July 2007 (UTC)
