Talk pages consultation - it is time to close the Phase 1!Modifica
You have volunteered to be a coordinator for the Talk pages consultation 2019. Thank you again!
Community summaries are due by Saturday, April 6, 2019. It is now time to close the conversations. We really thank everyone who has participated. Every opinion matters.
What is a community summary?
The goal of a community summary is to wrap up the discussions and provide a summary of what your participants said. That way, other communities can learn about your community's needs, concerns, and ideas. We have seen very different feedback on different wikis, and it is time to discover what everyone thinks!
Please include in that summary:
- every perspective or idea your community had, and
- how frequent each idea was; for example,
- how many users shared a given opinion
- whether an idea was more common among different types of contributors (newcomers, beginners, experienced editors...)
You can add as much detail as you want in that summary.
Please post it on the page for community summaries, using the most international English you have.
Can't the Wikimedia Foundation read all the feedback?
We are trying, but we really need your help. For most conversations, we have to use machine translation, which has limitations. This can help us find the most common needs or global ideas. Machine translation is useful, but it does not tell us how people are feeling or what makes your community unique.
Your community summary should be built from your community's perspective, experience and culture. You might also know of relevant discussions in other places, which we did not find (for example, perhaps someone left a note on your user talk page – it is okay to include that!). Your summary is extremely important to us.
What are the next steps?
Phase 2 will happen in April. We will analyze the individual feedback, your community summary, and some user testing. We hope to have a clear view of everyone's ideas and needs at the end of April.
Some ideas generated during phase 1 may be mutually exclusive. Some ideas might work better for some purposes or some kinds of users. During Phase 2, we'll all talk about which problems are more urgent, which projects are most closely aligned with the overall needs and goals of the movement, and which ideas we should focus on first.
Discussions about these ideas may be shaped and be moderated by the Wikimedia Foundation, guided by our decision criteria, listed on the project page.
How can I help now?
- Please provide the summary. :)
- While we study the feedback, we may ask you for more information.
- We will need your help for Phase 2 as well, probably to translate or publicize some future materials we may have.
If you have any questions or need some help, please ask.
Thank you again for your help, Trizek (WMF) 20:12, 3 abr 2019 (CEST)
Talk pages consultation: Phase 2 starts!Modifica
The Wikimedia Foundation is currently conducting a global consultation about communication. The goal is to bring Wikimedians and wiki-minded people together to improve tools for communication.
Phase 1 of the consultation is over, thank you very much for your help on setting up that first phase. We've published the Phase 1 report. The report summarizes what we've learned, proposes a direction for the project, and asks specific questions to explore in Phase 2.
Very briefly, the proposed direction is that wikitext talk pages should be improved, and not replaced. We propose building a new design on top of talk pages that changes the page's default appearance, and offers key tools like replying, indenting and signing posts. To keep consistency with existing tools, the new design will be a default experience that existing users can opt out of. We also propose building features that experienced contributors want, including the ability to watchlist a single discussion, and the ability to move, archive and search for threads. Building these features may require some loss of flexibility, or small-to-medium changes in wikitext conventions. The goal is to only make changes that directly enable functionality that users really want.
You can see more information and discussion about the proposed direction in the Phase 1 report, including the results of new user tests and some of the quotations from Phase 1 discussions that led to this proposal.
Now it's time to start Phase 2!
We have six questions to discuss in Phase 2, asking for reactions to the proposed direction, and pros and cons for specific changes that we could make.
Can you help by hosting a discussion at your wiki? Here's what to do:
- First, sign up your group here.
- Next, create a page (or a section on a Village pump, a dedicated page, or an e-mail thread – whatever is natural for your group) to collect information from other people in your group.
- Then start the conversation with the six questions listed in the Questions for Phase 2 section of the report.
- Inform your community about the Phase 2. We will display a banner on the wikis when some communities will have setup their local consultation places.
- When the conversation is concluded, please write a summary of the discussion on the Phase 2 community discussion summaries page, and report what you learned from your group. Please include links if the discussion is available to the public. Community summaries for Phase 2 are due by June 15, 2019
Thank you! We're looking forward to talking with you.
Best, Trizek (WMF) 09:35, 18 maig 2019 (CEST)
Talk pages consultation Phase 2 updateModifica
The Phase 2 of the talk pages consultation has begun. Several communities have already signed-up. This email is sent to every Phase 1 coordinator to provide you some updates.
If you prefer not to participate to the phase 2 as a coordinator, no worries: you can ignore that message, and you will not receive any message from us for the phase 2. In the future, we will only send messages to people who've listed their names on the phase 2 page. You've been very helpful for the phase 1 and we still thank you for your help. Can you forward this message to other people who may help?
Create a group or have it ready
Some groups are ready, some other are still under construction and we still miss some languages or wikis. We invite you to sign-up your community page for the phase 2.
We have two tables: one for under construction pages, the other one for ready-to-go pages. Under construction pages should be listed: we can help you to built it if needed. Those pages have to list the questions we have and should provide a link to the Phase 1 report.
Pages that are ready to be used have to be moved to the "Confirmed participant groups" section to that we can add them to the banner.
Banner and advertizing
When a community page is ready, we will help you to have it known. We are going to display a banner with link to the consultation on your wiki. We need some help to translate that banner (it is very short). We will not display a banner without translation to your community.
Don't forget to add a link to the consultation to any page on your wiki where people can see the information. You can also invite other wikis in your language to participate to one global page (like for Russian language).
Don't forget to post the information about Phase 2 on social medias related to your wiki(s), and ping people who participated to the phase 1.
Phase 1 report
The Phase 1 report is ready and communities should be aware if it. Please invite people to read it!
If you have any question, please contact me !

Talk pages consultation: final report publishedModifica
Over the past six months, a big consultation was hosted on various wikis about talk pages. You have helped us to host those conversations on your wiki, and we want to thank you about your help. Without your assistance, it would not have been possible to achieve it.
We are happy to inform you that the the Phase 2 report is now published. Like every community member, you are more than welcomed to write your thoughts about this report on the talk page, and watchlist the project page.
The publication is an important step: now we have a direction and the Editing team is going to work on the talk pages project. The next steps will be presented at Wikimania, on Saturday August 17, at 14:00 UTC. The session will be livrstreamed and recorded.
Thank you again for your help and assistance. The success of this consultation would not have been possible without you.
