A core part of the user experience, is the publishing tool set. Actions and applications for creating and editing content fluidly on the site. Currently Wiki's provide a powerful array of tools.
The Change tools are actions used to activate the editor for a page or a specific page.
Types of Change Tools
- Edit Page (seen in the upper right tab)
- Edit Section (seen as an Edit link within each heading 2 section
Though Wikipedia has continued to have the Edit Page tool as a tab in the upper right, their commercial division, Wikia has started using a button located by the page title to do the same thing.
Tools used to identify properties of a page that is tracked by the wiki system.
Types of Property tools include

Editor (OUT OF SCOPE)
The Editor as of April 2011, is out of scope for the redesign, but is listed here anyways.
Seems pretty close to Wikipedia's Editor
The editor is an embedded content submission area that is used to add, update, or change existing content. The editor provides text that is integrated with wiki markup. A graphic button toolbar is provided that will insert wikimarkup to text. An advanced form of the toolbar is available. There has been some discussion for using a different Editor.
