Public Lesson Notes?

So here's some sort of add-on suggestion for the lessons.

What if users had the ability to make their own side-notes for lessons. All those side-notes would be categorized by lesson. Each lesson would have a small collection of user notes that everyone could read.

It would be something like a community-made FAQ for a lesson; bringing attention to repetitive questions that appear in the discussion boards. As an example, "when to use lo in Italian" or "everything after nessuna changes to singular".

Many users have uploaded some great notes into the discussion board, but it would be nice to always have direct access to them, instead of digging through the board.

What does everyone think? (Sorry if this idea was brought up already)

Good idea, maybe it could be integrated in a wiki or something.

Discussions made from specific skills are public and posted directly to that skill. I don't see much difference of those discussions with what you are suggesting.

Then I guess this would a slight tweak to that idea. It just wouldn't be formatted as discussion board (more of a wiki like joakandr suggested) and it wouldn't include any nonsense posts like "I can't understand the Italian woman she sounds like a robot!" or "this section is waay to long". It would cut down the amount of repeated discussion posts about the topic.

Useful posts usually get upvoted and stay at the top. And, if the post was created specifically to explain some grammar point, the main info is in the original post, so comments does not really matter.

Just to clarify: I mean not discussions of sentences, but discussions specifically made in a given skill. They don't usually contain comments about robotic voice or other common problems.
