Submission + - WikiLove to encourage newbie editors? (

mikejuk writes: Wikipedia has a cunning plan to make wikipedians nicer to each other — its all about WikiLove. They can click on the Love button to make each other feel good about contributing anything from an article to an edit. The idea is that this will encourage newbie editors to stay and contribute rather than slink away into the rest of the web because their contributions get deleted and derided.
Perhaps all we need for world peace is a big enough love button.
