Should there be a time limit for how long the page can be idly in progress?

Ghost (Scratch Modification) is the oldest in progress, since January 21st.

Perhaps. Maybe if it's been in progress for longer than a month, it should be time to let someone else edit.

Here's an idea: If you put "|minorchanges=yes" in "{{In Progress}}", it would tell users that they have permission from the person working on the page that they can make minor changes to the page. Here's a mockup of what the template would look like with "|change=yes" in it:

Warning.png This article or section is currently undergoing major changes. Please avoid modifying this page's contents majorly until this template has been removed. You do have permission to make minor edits to this page like fixing typos or adding to a category.
What are your thoughts?

I think it's actually generally accepted that minor changes are already allowed.

Third user

The documentation falsely claimed that "you can add a third user to this template, by following the same steps as above". Can we modify this template to support a third user?
