[uf-discuss] Wiki editing issues

I was trying to edit the Issues section of the naming-principles page:


First I clicked what I thought was the appropriate [edit] link, where  
I was told I needed to login.  After logging in, I was offered a link  
back to the Main Page.  This is issue #1: I should be offered a link  
back to the edit I was about to make.

So I used my back button to flip through my history to where I was  
and then reload the page with my shiny new logged-in cookie, only to  
discover I'd clicked the wrong [edit] link.  I've done this before  
because some wikis put the link before the section and others put it  
after the section, so I went back and clicked the adjacent link.  It  
turns out there is no link to edit the section.  The edit page is here:


The links on the article end at number 14 and don't quite line up to  
the nearby content.  This is issue #2: there should be an edit link  
for every section, near the section.

These are both relatively simple to work around, but I wonder if  
we're maybe losing valuable input in the wiki due to such minor
